  • Buckner, not Bonds, played like Hall of Famer

        Recently filmmaker Ken Burns released his addendum to the famous “Baseball” mini series, updating the history of the professional game over the past 20 years.

        As exciting as baseball history can be, even to an average fan of the sport, the new Burns edition brought both good and bad memories.

  • Fatalities should not be reason to make changes

        How many times has it been said that road improvements won’t be made until there is a fatality?

        The number of fatalities on a roadway should not be reason for highway improvements.

        But, if that is the criteria, the state should find the money to make improvements on Highway 61 and Highway 44.

        Currently, plans are awaiting money to continue the improvements on Highway 61 from Pioneer Village to Shepherdsville.

  • WE deserve our own political party right now

    With a love of political science dating way back to my elementary school days, I must confess that I don’t follow a lot of the national and international issues.

    It seems that there are plenty of issues and problems existing within the boundaries of Bullitt County. That’s a full-time job.

    But from the days of running for class president to writing a paper on Richard Nixon back in elementary school, politics has been fascinating.

    If I were to ever get out of this great profession, politics could be my next stop.
