Bill would reduce public transparency
U.S. governments, large and small, have a duty to inform the public about the actions they intend to take, the laws they enact and the money they spend. The mandatory publication in a newspaper of public notices detailing these decisions helps ensure a democratic process. It keeps...

Getting the hang of retirement will take time
As the day of my retirement is approaching fast, I am beginning to realize that as big events in life go, it is right up there with getting married, my extreme youth at the time explains that one, having babies, remember two at a time, and living to see “he who shall not be named”...
