1. This is a civil action for declaratory and injunctive relief relating to Defendants' acceptance of Common Core State Standards. Plaintiff seeks injunctive relief in the form of a court order reversing Defendants' illegal acceptance of Common Core State Standards and forbidding any continued action relating to same until such time as specific legislative approval is granted.
2. Time is of the essence in resolving this issue because substantial public resources have been and are currently being devoted to implementation of Common Core despite a clear constitutional mandate intended to provide for an efficient system of common schools. Continued delay in limiting the state officials’ activities in this matter to within the scope of Kentucky law and the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Kentucky sets a terrible precedent for ignoring constitutional limits on executive and legislative branch authority to protect Kentuckians’ rights to seek and pursue their safety and happiness as explicitly guaranteed by the Kentucky Constitution.
3. The judicial branch of the Commonwealth of Kentucky is the only remaining venue for redress available to Plaintiff.
4. As a result of the actions of Defendants, Plaintiff respectfully seeks a temporary and permanent injunction against Defendants' continued implementation of Common Core until such time as the General Assembly provides appropriate legislation to restore constitutionally mandated efficiency to the Commonwealth's system of common schools.

Thank You Veterans
November 11 is our day to remember that freedom is not free. Today we honor and remember those that have served and are serving in uniform. The words of Ronald Reagan remind us that all Americans must defend and cherish freedom because as he said in 1967, "Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again." Let us be ever vigilant and respectful of those that wore and wear uniforms to protect our God given right to freedom and liberty.

Airport boards as early as the late 1970’s have been making bad decisions in the governance of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky airport, also known in airline parlance as CVG. A Faustian bargain was made with Delta Airlines to make CVG one of its major hubs. Although the designation of CVG as a Delta hub seemed like a good idea at the time, and incontrovertibly contributed billions to our economy, in return Delta has gouged local airline consumers for years with their overpriced flights (CVG Needs Competition to Lower Fares, 2013). More than 90 percent of travelers through CVG were flying Delta in the 1990s and into the early 2000s, and the airline developed a stranglehold on fares here (Can Frontier survive where others dared fly?, 2013). The monopoly Delta enjoyed at CVG allowed them to discourage or crush any meaningful competition that would have facilitated lower fares. Low-cost carriers were outgunned by aggressive price-matching by dominant carrier Delta Air Lines (Can Frontier survive where others dared fly?, 2013).

Governor Steven Beshear has enacted Common Core science standards for Kentucky Schools, despite the state legislature’s sub-committee’s 5-1 decision against implementation.
According to the article written by Thomas McAdam in the Derby City News, the General Assembly’s bicameral Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee found the proposed standards lacking in academic rigor.
On Thursday, November 7, The Core Group of Northern Kentucky (NKY) Tea Party leaders passed a resolution to support and help fund a lawsuit against Governor Steve Beshear's action. The lawsuit will challenge the Governor’s authority to bypass the legislature to implement by “Executive Order”.
The lawsuit will be filed by David Adams, who has a pending lawsuit to be heard by the Supreme Court against the Governor regarding the “Executive Order” implementation of the “Affordable Care Act” and Medicaid expansion in Kentucky.
President of the NKY Party, Larry Robinson said that Governor Beshear is acting illegally and not allowing the checks and balances of the state government to operate as designed by our founders. Vice President of the NKY Tea Party, Erik Hermes added that his actions are unconstitutional and it is the responsibility of the citizens to challenge these illegal actions by the Governor.
