  • Make Internet safe for youngsters

    With school out and many kids spending more time on the Internet during the summer months, Attorney General Jack Conway wants to remind Kentucky families about the importance of staying safe online.  In observance of June’s designation as National Internet Safety Month, General Conway asks that parents be engaged in the virtual world, just as they are in the real world.

  • Jurors, elected officials are similar

    With the filing deadlines still seven months away, those running for office on both a state and local level must determine one thing - is it my goal to regulate morality?

    And the electorate must decide whether it expects its leaders to provide the rules of morality to the masses.

    It has often been said that one doesn’t talk politics or religion. Let’s try to do both.

  • Budget committee should continue its work year-round

    Bullitt Fiscal Court felt that the upcoming budget would be a difficult one due to the economic shortfalls in several revenue-generating areas.

    While a committee worked on the budget last year, the process incorporated this time around was much better.

    The meetings were planned in advance and members of the public were even invited to attend. Not only is this a better atmosphere, it is also the legal way to conduct committee meetings.

  • Bullitt Lick process works to perfection

    When a reporter from The Pioneer News shows up at a school-based council meeting, it usually isn’t good.

    Not that we wouldn’t like to attend every school’s council meetings but manpower doesn’t allow that to happen.

    When we do, a problem has normally arisen.

    Bullitt Lick Middle tackled a very interesting issue lately - whether it should change its name.

    This could be a very emotional issue both for those who attend the school now and those who have attends since its opening over 30 years ago.

  • Three graduates will be perfect employees in future

    Over the past week, graduates from the four Bullitt County high schools have been honored.

    Many have stood as their accomplishments were recognized. There was academic achievement. Athletic skill was honored. And those who excelled in extracurricular activities were honored.

    But maybe three graduates accomplished one of the greatest achievements in the Class of 2009.

    I would add my special salute to Hanna Scott and Jacob Corley, both of North Bullitt, and Ericka Nutt of Bullitt East.
