I needed to replace some old switches for the disposal and the "over the sink" light that were from the 70's. They were configured differently than the new switches that I purchased. I also noticed that the old switches were not grounded. I ended up pulling it all out and hope to do it correctly. Previously all the white wire was conected together welded and taped, then the hot black was run with a section cut out of the center that was then strung to the next switch. I don't think that was correct either. Any help doing this correct is greatly appreciated.

Do It like it was before. It was fine.
Connect all the whites together with a wire nut.
Connect all the grounds together and to the switches.
Connect the power black to two short black pigtails with a wire nut.
Connect one pigtail to each new switch.
Connect the black from the light and GD to the switches.
Do not PM with questions that can be asked in a forum. I will not respond.
