What are good jobs for a 13 year old in Bowling Green KY?

When You Are 13 Or Younger . . .

* You can deliver newspapers. * You can work as a baby-sitter. * You can work as an actor or performer in motion pictures, television, theater or radio. * You can work in a business solely owned or operated by your parents. * You can work on a farm owned or operated by your parents.

However, parents are prohibited from employing their children in manufacturing, mining, or any other occupation declared hazardous by the Secretary of Labor. from other contributors:

* Any job that requires little or no skills, such as a register worker at a fast food restaurant, is a good start. If you want a more personal job such as babysitting, visiting your local college campus and viewing the want ads is a good start. The jobs that are posted there are catered for students, and it will not hurt to ask even if you are not yet in college. == == * I disagree with above statement mentioning any job which requires little or no skills. Any person who will ever be intelligent should be intelligent by the time they are a young adult. When I was 16 I was working as a software programmer making 30k a year, at 19 I started a buisness selling software services. I am not 20 and make over 300k a year. I would feel very stupid if I spent my younger years working a cash register when I should have been learning and building skills to succeed. == == * at the age of thirteen you can get a job of a paper round == == * Another good job is a job as a cashier or stocker at a department store or general store. I work at PETsMART on weekends and i am making ~$9/hr. im a cashier there. == == * You should get a job doing whatever is most challenging. The first time I went out to give resumes I was more looking for a job doing cleaning like a chamber maid because I love to clean and it avoided confrontation(unlike in retail with constant customers). Coincidentally my first call back was from a retail store that I just happened to put my resume in. I didn't have any sales experience and was even gonna say no thank you because it seemed to be to much of a challenge but instead they gave me the job opportunity and I took it. I know the job like the back of my hand and having chose what I figured I wasn't capable of just built my confidence and now I know that I am capable of jobs like that. Point is don't conform yourself to one criteria of work,you can do ANY job if you tell yourself you can. And when you do you feel that much better about yourself.You feel you have no experience, the only way to get it is to start somewhere.

How did the Kentucky wildcats get their name?

The nickname "Wildcats" became synonymous with UK shortly after a 6-2 football road victory over Illinois on October 9, 1909. Commandant Philip W. Corbusier, then head of the military department at old State University, told a group of students in a chapel service following the game that the Kentucky football team had "fought like Wildcats." Later the name Wildcats became more and more popular among UK followers as well as with members of the media. As a result, the nickname was adopted by the University.

Emancipation and Ages for Moving Out
Iowa
Kentucky

What are the requirements to move out at 17?

Moving out at 17In some states, yes, you can move out at 17. For example, Texas. But most states you have to be 18 to move out. However, if you are in a state that allows you to move out at 17 then there a rules and regulations you must follow. You cannot be moving around a lot and staying in different places. You must be able to stay in one place permanently. You must have a form of transportation, continue your education, and be able to support yourself as far as money goes.

Well I don't know how much this helps, but I am 17 years old right now and I recently moved into an apartment with my boyfriend of two years. Now, I don't know about where you live, but while still attending school, which I am, we are only allowed to work a 20 hour work week. I have not had to prove anything to anybody, I don't know if that's because my mother is okay with this and I didn't just pick up and leave, but she hadsn't had to explain anything to anybody. My boyfriend and I just decided that it was time we get a place together, as we both feel mature enough and just tired of being at home. There is lots of responsiblity, it's not just fun and games. If you feel ready and mature enough to handle living on your own, then go ahead, because I'm loving it, but keep in mind that there are bills to pay and chores to do. I've just grown beyond my years, so at seventeen, he and I are fine because we're like adults, our own little family. If your going to do this, shop around and find a good place, not more than what you can afford. Make up a budget of all of your expenses. If you need help with this, sometimes you can find some worksheets made up online. Take groceries and other necessities into consideration, you don't want to come up short and end up having to move back home, or worse, go into debt and get into some trouble. It's a lot to get into so before leaving just ask yourself if you can handle it all.

Honestly i don't think that all of that is true. ins ome states you don't have to prove anything. you can leave home at age 17 as long as you are attending school. they cant file you as a runaway.

Generally, no. The age of majority is 18 in most Western countries and most US states (in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19; in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21). To move out at 17 you need parental permission or legal emancipation that recognizes you as an adult.

In the state of Missouri, 17 year olds are recognized as adults- so yes you can. There's nothing that the police can do to you unless: 1) You are on a type of probation. If you are go speak with them about you moving out. 2) If you are not mentally stable.

My advice to is get as much as you can out of your house before you are done living there. When i left my house at 17 my dad kept everything i owned and there's wasn't anything the law could do to make him give it back. My parents tried everything to make it hell for me afterwards,but keep your head up and be smart about when and why you do it.

WELL, AS FOR ME AND MY CIRCUMSTANCES I CANNOT LEAVE MY MOTHERS HOME UNTIL I GET 18 YEARS OF AGE. I AM NOT CURRENTLY IN SCHOOL, I AM PREGNANT. I AM DUE ANY DAY NOW. I HAVE 15-20 MORE CREDITS TO MAKE UP, SO I GO BACK TO SCHOOL IN JANUARY OF 2006 AS A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL. I HAD TO LEAVE MY JOB THAT I HAD WITH PLENTY OF CERTIFICATES OF APPRECIATION. MY BABYS FATHER IS STILL IN THE PICTURE. HE HAS A JOB, LOOKING FOR A PLACE FOR US, BUT MY MOM WILL NOT LET ME MOVE. SHE ALWAYS USES THE POLICE TO ENFORCE WHAT SHE SAYS. TO ME, IF I AM DOING EXCELLENT IN SCHOOL, PREGNANT, HAVE LICENSE, A CAR, BANK ACCOUNT, GOING THROUGH PREGNANCY PROGRAMS THAT HELPS YOU WITH TRANSPORTATION, CHILD CARE FEES, SCHOOL FINANCES, GIVES YOU $500 DOLLARS WHEN YOU GRADUATE PLUS $100 BONUSES ON YOUR REPORT CARD, AND A SEVENTEEN TEENAGE DAUGHTER THAT IS WILLINGTO GO OUT ON HER OWN, WHY NOT LET HER GO? NOT TO FORGET, I DID IT BEFORE, BUT MY MOTEHR CALLED THE POLICE AND LIED TO THE AUTHORITIES WHEN I TOLD HER I WAS PREGNANT. PLEASE LET ME IN ON WHATEVER YOU KNOW TO HELP ME....PLEASE!!!!

hey babe... you can get married... that is your only choice.. to move out b4 18

To the smart ass girl who was saying you don't need to move out unless you can spell and you bragged about the GREAT things about you, Honey, inserence is spelled INSURANCE. So you too!!!

Ok I have a friend who is miserable at home, like me, and we need to know the legal age to move out of our parents at age 17 in Mississippi. I am 16 and have a 22 year old boyfriend. We are engaged, been together 4 HAPPY years, and doing great. Obviously you didnt have a good relationship because mine loves me. Too bad for you two. My friend is 17 and dating a 24 year old. They too are engaged and very happy. I feel sorry for those who cant say the same and think obviously bc their boyfriend cheated or whatever everyone else's is going to bc that is their personal problem. We are both very happy and just want to know when we can move out of our house.

Please answer this question for me: im a seventeen year old girl and want to know if i can move out of my parents house legally in the state of Mississippi without there permission.

ANSWER,

As far as I know you can leave home at 17,only if you are pregnant or already have a child.Any state does consider you as a adult at that time.but check your state laws to be exact.I left home when I was 17 and pregnant in Virginia back in 2008.and the law did'NT do anything about it,due to the fact that Virginia consider me as an adult,then and its still true now,Virginia still has that law.I am living with my boyfriend now who is 22 years older then me,and no I don't care about the age difference,its just a number to me,and besides we are happy,along with our baby boy Robert.I admit it was hard at first to get by,but we have pulled through.

What was the cause of the Hatfield-McCoy feud?

The Hatfield-McCoy blood feud is often dated 1863 to 1891 (exact dates depend on your definition of "feud", and may vary a little). There are various theories about exactly why it started. Perhaps nobody will ever know _for_sure_ (unless somebody has a time machine:-). Possibilities include:

1. The feud started when RandolphMcCoy and Anderson Hatfield fought side by side in the civil war. The initial reason they disagreed is because Anderson deserted his whole army company, including Randolph (perhaps because he'd had enough of soldiering, perhaps because he figured the South was a "lost cause" and saw no sense in dying for it, perhaps because it was too much for him to handle). Randolph was later captured and imprisoned, ahd had a very hard time. After McCoy got home to the mountains (possibly a "broken man" or possibly even a partially crazy one because of his prison experiences), Hatfield had tried to resume the friendship, but McCoy treated Hatfield disagreeably and even angrily. This in turn soon made Hatfield angry, thus starting the feud.

At least that's what was shown in the miniseries drama/documentary "Hatfields & McCoys" on the History Channel in 2012. Although plausible and good drama, there's little independent evidence this is _exactly_ what happened.

2. The feud was really more about economics than about family/clan loyalty. As timber and later coal interests came to the region, the economy changed dramatically. Randall McCoy's attempt to go into the timber business failed badly. Devil Anse Hatfield on the other hand became comfortably "wealthy".

3. Many people in the feud suffered from hereditary undiagnosed tumors on their adrenal glands. The tumors caused significant mood swings, leading to rash behavior, which both started and perpetuated the feud.

4. There was apparently some lingering Civil War partisanship, perhaps even a significant amount. Most people in the area -both most McCoys and most Hatfields- fought on the side of the South ...but not everybody. Tensions between families and even within families remained high. Also, Devil Anse Hatfield was the leader of a shadowy rather violent organization called the "Logan's Wildcats" that continued to support "Southern" causes long after the Civil War ended. It seems to have been involved in the feud in a significant way.

5. Most backcountry people were somewhat excluded from and quite suspicious of all government power. It was pretty easy for someone to conclude the "other side" got what it did only because the other State Government (West Virginia vs. Kentucky) had taken sides unfairly.

6. The initial deaths may have just been a string of very unfortunately timed "accidents" (i.e. "bad luck"). The resulting ongoing tit-for-tat responses became a "feud". (To restate this in rather more blunt words: it's possible there really wasn't _any_ fundamental reason behind the feud.)

Abraham Lincoln

Where was Abraham Lincoln born?

There is no truth to the story that Abraham Lincoln's mother was pregnant by another man story, which first self-published in 1899 in North Carolina by a man named James Cathey. The book, ‘Truth is Stranger than Fiction: or, The True Genesis of a Wonderful Man [Abraham Lincoln] has gone by variations of that title in some reprints over the decades, too. What is odd is that even as early as the 1890s, when the Lost Cause myth was still strong in the South, some people wanted to claim Lincoln as a native son of North Carolina, disparaging mainly his Virginia-born mother. Separately, the putative father, one Abraham Enloe, 14 years old when the future president was born in 1809, later stated clearly that he was not the father of Abraham Lincoln. Possibly all the nonsense arises from a N. Carolina soldier of the Confederacy, named Abraham Lincoln, who was we think something like a 3rd or 4th cousin to the 16th president; and got his name in the papers during the war as being strongly Confederate. I know nothing more on details of that soldier’s ancestry.Thomas and Nancy Lincoln were married in June 1806 in Kentucky – the deed exists – and their daughter Sarah was born about 11 months later. Many people in and around the towns of Washington, KY, and Hodgenville, KY, attested to the Lincoln family’s presence there. (An unrelated Thomas Lincoln lived eastwards, in Fayette Co., KY, in the 1810s-1820s, but our Thomas had removed to Indiana in fall 1816). See Wilson and Davis, eds., “Herndon’s Informants: Letters, Interviews, and Statements about Abraham Lincoln” (Univ. of Illinois Press, 1988), a massive, fine piece of detective and transcription work.
We understand that a newish museum about the old Enloe myth is now in Bostic, NC. We wish them well, but mainly we urge people everywhere to read Lincoln’s writings themselves – those are what is important for us all.
