Today's Opinions

  • Supreme Court made right call on smoking ban

     There’s nothing like a massive sinkhole opening up and swallowing eight prized sports cars at the National Corvette Museum to increase ticket sales. Attendance at the Bowling Green attraction is up by as much as 70 percent during some recent months compared to a year ago.

    And, there’s nothing like a ruling by the Kentucky Supreme Court on issues even remotely related to smoking bans to stir the passions of a commonwealth raised on tobacco.

  • What will the final six months bring to county?

     At the first of each year, people like to prognosticate on what will happen for the new year.

    Sometimes those predictions are accurate. Sometimes they are not.

    Now that we’ve cut out the first six months of 2014, maybe we can sharpen our scope and see what happens for the final half-dozen months.

    First, we have the election fields narrowed down with a flurry of primary races decided in May.

    It was the first time there were more Republican primary races than Democratic contests in Bullitt County history.

  • Best of Paul Coyle

     This Coyle's Corner, originally published June 30, 2010, was a classic Coyle tongue-and-cheek look at politics in the media, focusing on an Independence Day visit by Rand Paul to Bullitt County.

    The Pioneer News wishes everyone a fun and safe Independence Day weekend and holiday.

  • BC and NB teams eligible for both LIT events in 2015

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – We are now firmly in the ‘dead period.’

         Fortunately, as of today, there is no word of any vampires, ghosts or zombies walking through any of our athletic facilities.

         The ‘dead period’ is the creation of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. It is a two-week period from June 25 to July 9 in which high school coaches and athletic facilities and equipment cannot be in use.

  • Fox Chase good people

     The Fox Chase Mayor’s resignation statement was not only unnecessary but untrue. The current council members are well respected, active members of the community.

  • Safe Fourth of July

     The 4th of July is fast approaching and long with it comes fireworks. Although they are an integral part of this wonderful celebration and everyone enjoys a good show, please keep in mind that a lot of people have jobs they have to get up early for, children that need rest and animals that re terrified by the sounds. Not everyone enjoys hearing or seeing them for days on end until the wee hours of the morning. Please keep this in mind and be respectful of your neighbors and others in your community. 

    Have a Happy & Safe 4th of July!

  • Growing district has building pros, cons

     I have called Bullitt County home for nearly two decades and in that time, I have been privileged to witness a great deal of growth and progress in this community.

    Our student population has grown a little over 30 percent over that 20 year period to right at 13,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grades. 

    This kind of growth presents a lot of opportunities.  With more students, we can offer more varied and individualized programs tailored to specific interests and abilities. 

  • Make safe boating part of your July 4 holiday weekend plans

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – With the Fourth of July falling on a Friday this year, Kentucky’s lakes and rivers will be teeming with boaters enjoying the long holiday weekend.

    Officials with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources want it to be a fun and safe experience for everyone.
