LATI is scheduled to host President Obama who will deliver the commencement speech for the Class of '15. Under his leadership confidence in the economy is at its highest since the Great Recession.

Habitat for Humanity enjoys the support of Rosalynn and former Pres. Jimmy Carter. Carter tried to save the world during his Presidency but nobody cared.

Reading reports from District 28's Republican senator Betty Olson can be a bit of a trip. One has to suspend some disbelief when reading lines like these:
I got HCR 1003 urging the federal government to abolish the US Department of Education passed in the Senate on Thursday. Pres. Carter inflicted the Dept. of Education on us in 1979 so the feds could dictate to the states how we educate our children. If the Dept. of Ed. was abolished, it would save between $30 and $50 billion that could go toward the $18 trillion national debt and allow the states to control education.
