  • Pension bill was flushed

     The only honest and appropriate thing about the way our legislature “passed” the Kentucky teachers pension cut was flushing it through on the bottom of a wastewater bill.

    I was sorry to see Bullitt County Representative Russell Webber and State Senator Dan Seum helped operate the commode.

  • Thank you emergency workers

     Thank you, Emergency Workers, for all you have been doing during the awful, flooding weather.

    Bonnie and I went to a funeral service late Saturday evening on Feb. 24 for a very good man who deserved the attendance.  Several times along the stormy roads I saw wrecks, overflowing streams, and cars in ditches.

    And at each place I saw blue flashing lights in the darkness, and brave men and women enduring the rain and cold to help those in need.

  • Parks improvements please

     My family moved to Bullitt County over 28 years ago and back then there were no parks where families could take their kids to play.

    I wrote a letter that was published and there must have been other people thinking the same thing as the First Street Park became a reality.

    With all of the new neighborhoods being built and families moving in, it is time to evaluate how we can improve on our parks.

  • Budget bill still not right

     The General Assembly has finally produced a bill regarding public pensions and the fine print reveals some remarkable facts about its potential impact. The “fine print” in question is the actuarial analysis performed on behalf of Kentucky Retirement Systems regarding those aspects of Senate Bill 1 that affect KRS.

  • Paper fails the county

     The Pioneer News (PN) is failing the people of Bullitt County. The PN has provided no investigative journalism to its readers nor does it hold any governments, county leaders or candidates accountable. 

    This has been a running joke for too long.  Given the political climate, budget outlooks, needed economic development and upcoming elections, I’m done laughing. 

    We need an active newspaper and as one of the largest and fastest growing counties, we deserve one.

  • Games too pricey

     I would like to address the Bullitt County athletic directors, or the Board of Education, as to who sets the prices for high school basketball games.

    Every game that I have attended this year, the cost for admission has been $6 and that is for adults and students. College students event get a discount to attend games for their schools.

    There are weeks when there are two or three games at $6 admission that can get pricey, especially for teens who work hard for their money.

    These games can also be pricey for families who have multiple children.

  • Keep your trash

     My name is Elizabeth Dennis Owen. I live on Flatlick Road. You don’t know me but there are times when you are driving by, you toss your garbage and it lands in my front yard.

    Sometimes you are walking when you have garbage you want to get rid of. 

    I don’t throw my garbage in your front yard but if you would like for me to return the favor, just send me your address. I will see what I can do to accommodate you.

  • Vote for Belcher

     I have known Linda Belcher for over 40 years. She and late  husband (Larry Belcher) were dedicated educators since 1970. She taught school, was an assistant principal and a principal, and was director of transportation in Bullitt County.

    She continued in working in education as an instructor at U of L.

  • Thanks from HOPE

     The board members of HOPE of Bullitt County would like to say thank you to those who took their time to help make our program a success.

  • Audit worth expense

     I feel the money spent on the recent county audit was money well spent.

    I like specifics and there were none.

    It may be classified info but being a tax payer and if we have a right to know, then tell us what’s going on or what we’re missing, if anything.

    We’re all adults here I hope. Whenever there’s only one person in control of all the financial paperwork we’re asking for trouble.
