Your Turn: Your Feedback On EBT, Common Core Delay & CVS
The state Senate passed a measure to stop people from using public assistance money to buy things like alcohol and tobacco. Most of your feedback this week is about that:
It's about time. The only thing I disagree with...is that you should not get three times and then lose your benefits. You should lose it after the first offense.
EBT cards should be controlled like WIC! Tell them this is the list of things that are allowed to be purchased and that's that!
Common Core needs to disappear!
If they are not postponed, I would encourage parents to have your children REFUSE the test.
Common Core should not only be delayed, but enhanced to meet the needs of students and not those of politicians who are not educators.
CVS made history by becoming the first major U.S. pharmacy chain to agree to stop selling all tobacco products in its stores:
Other drug stores should follow CVS's lead. It's a bold and...courageous stand they are taking.
Who cares? People will still smoke if they want!
Let's attack the junk food eaters. The chips and candy have to go too.
They may as well stop selling alcohol.
