The “Waters of the U.S.” proposed rule lets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulate small ponds, ditches, rainwater flowing through low spots and isolated wet spots – the same as if they were a river or other navigable waterways.

This proposal will be a serious threat to farming and ranching, homebuilding, energy production and other land uses.

Tell the EPA it’s time to ditch the rule!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – “There’s a lot of money involved in feeding our kids at school,” Michelle Obama recently told children at the White House. Just ask Hamdi Ulukaya.

Ulukaya’s company, Chobani Greek yogurt, was the beneficiary of a “very fast” decision from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 2013 to use Greek yogurt on a trial basis in four states’ school lunch programs.

Yolanda Vega, who came to the U.S. illegally in search of a better life, doesn’t have a driver’s license, yet six days a week she travels miles from the trailer she shares with her husband and teenage daughter outside Durango to clean homes much larger than her own.

Vega, 32, relies on her husband to drive her to work, using a license he obtained years earlier in New Mexico.

Presently, Colorado law makes it impossible for people like her to obtain a driver’s license, but a law passed in the state legislature in 2013 is meant to change that, starting Aug. 1.

Hearing that she was eligible for a license under that law, Vega was elated.

“It’s important because if you have an accident or something, you would have your license,” she told The Denver Post in an interview translated by her daughter. “I could drive to work.”

But Vega, who came from Chihuahua, Mexico, will not be getting a driver’s license anytime soon. Vega is one of as many as 150,000 people in Colorado illegally who may be seeking a driver’s license under the new law, activists say. However, what those in the immigrant community see as problems with the program have made it difficult for potential applicants to sign up.

Only five locations of the state’s 56 licensing centers will be issuing the cards — and by appointment only. For applicants like Vega, the dearth of offices and the appointment-only system means months to years of waiting and hours-long drives.

Keep in mind that you must show I.D. to enter a federal building.

Hey Catholics and “they just come for a better life”…

I suggest you actually read your Bible.

President Obama will announce on Monday that 60 of the nation’s largest school districts are joining his initiative to improve the educational futures of young African-American and Hispanic boys, beginning in preschool and extending through high school graduation.

The districts, which represent about 40 percent of all African-American and Hispanic boys living below the poverty line, have committed to expand quality preschool access; track data on black and Hispanic boys so educators can intervene as soon as signs of struggle emerge; increase the number of boys of color who take gifted, honors or Advanced Placement courses and exams; work to reduce the number of minority boys who are suspended or expelled; and increase graduation rates among African-American and Hispanic boys.

President Obama announced in February a five-year, $200 million initiative, known as My Brother’s Keeper, to help black and Latino youths.
