Retirement plan approved

McDONALD — School employees will get another fringe benefit.

The village school board Monday approved a 457 plan for employees. It’s similar to a 401(k) plan, except that participants can begin drawing money from it as soon as they retire, regardless of age.

The district now has a 403B plan under which retirees cannot collect on their money until they are 591‚Ñ2.

In other business, the board accepted the retirement resignations of three teachers: Ray Flere, Roosevelt Elementary fifth-grade teacher for 26 years; Carol Cooper, third-grade teacher for 36 years; and Donna Dolsak, high school math teacher for 35 years.

They are taking advantage of the early-retirement incentive approved by the board in October, which gives them a $15,000 bonus to be paid over five years, in addition to their pensions.

The 2009-10 school year will operate under a shortened calendar, with classes starting Aug. 24 and ending May 28. Easter break will be April 2 to 6, with school resuming April 7.

Board President Robert Jones said that the board had a long discussion about whether to put a levy on the ballot in May to pay for a sports complex but decided district finances are too much in the air at this time.

Jones noted that Governor Ted Strickland’s proposed allocation of funds does not look good for the district, nor does expected money from the federal stimulus bill.

The only way the American taxpayer will see a turnaround in some of the economy is to halt immigration violations. It has become a combat zone in the workplace. This simply means we need State governors, mayors, judges and anti-illegal immigrant, pro-sovereignty politicians. Starting with Walter Moore, as a new Mayor elect of Los Angeles, who would rescind the 'Sanctuary city' policy in the county.

Only THE PEOPLE, have the power to recall or reject incumbents like Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), Speaker Pelosi (D-CAL) Senator Gutierrez who undermined e-verify in the Stimulus package.

A powerful tool to halt foreign nationals taking jobs of American workers. 40 million illegal aliens have occupied our country, according to the Heritage Foundation. Not 13 million pushed by the liberal media Different administrations have allowed this, in favor of the business community and it's likely to get worse as foreign country economies suffer. The stimulus bill promotes upgrading roads, bridges and other infrastructure.

Whistle-blowers should report contractors to ICE, who violate immigration laws.

Do not stop calling the Washington switchboard demanding reinstating E-verify.at (202) 224-3121 This is also your contact with President Obama to stop hundreds of billions of dollars that support illegal immigration.
