These deep-pocketed parishioners will enjoy hefty charitable donations via the Church on their IRS filings. Some parents with children in parochial schools also write-off the tuition as a tithe. By the way, if this group has raised $4M and has pledges for the remaining $4M, then why did they present a resolution to the fiscal court requesting bonding assistance? Either this group has cash in hand to fund the construction for their school, or they don't. Sounds like they don't. Somebody's gonna get left holding the short end of the stick, and you can wager it will not be members of the Catholic Church.
check and see who is school board members.

$8 million of UC taxpayers' money for a new Catholic school???
Voted on and approved by the Union County Fiscal Court on Nov. 13, 2012 ---- Union County now is helping the Owensboro diocese build a new school in Morganfield with the county’s aid of $8 million in bonding assistance. What precedent does this really set? If any of the many Protestant churches in Union County ask for this kind of assistance, will they get it? It should be all treated equally or not at all.
How did you know that the taxpayers have to pay for that construction?!

Yes the school is getting a loan at a very low interest rate through Uc fiscal court. For all the idiots there is a fund this money is given to the county every year. Organizations and businesses can petition to borrow this money at low interest rates. And yes the parishioners are raising money as well.

The bond is for a business just like any other. This on just happens to be owned (and financially guaranteed by) the Owensboro Diocese. Why did no one complain when the county bonded a Methodist business (the hospital? Are you a bunch of Bigots? Do you hate Catholics?

Yes, non Catholics can and do attend.
No Special Needs classes, other than speech therapy (that I know of).

I was at this meeting and that is not what Jody said. It's just a thing that he recognized and there is no county money involved. Call him and he will explain. This school is being built with donations.
Thank you for bringing fact and reason into this conversation. People will believe anything that they read or hear. The school is being paid for 100% by the parishioners of the many Caholic Churches here in UC. So everybody else needs to chill out. If you want to open a Protestant School, do it. Learn the facts before spreading lies.

What happened to seperating church and state. Seems to me if the money is being backed by the county that rule has gone out the window. County money came from the state, which in turn came from taxpayers. Seems to me if it's being backed by public paid state taxes, this school has now become a public school and not a private one. Then I guess it should be open for all to attend without paying tuition like the public schools.I know the arguement, the church is paying for it being built. The fact still remains that if it's being loaned out of county money and repaid. Goverment was still involved.
