  • Accountability is tough subject to fully understand

        The dictionary definition of accountability is an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions.
        While this definition certainly applies (or should apply) in our politics, our families, or our churches, the word is used differently when it comes to what is known as school accountability.
        In education, school accountability revolves almost exclusively around student testing and is really a synonym of the word “rating.”

  • More horror movie ideas...

     Leave it to the Cynical Journalist to squeeze blood from the turnip of impossibility.

    Each year at this time we try to gather a list of potential Halloween horror movie ideas based on local or current news events.

    This year has been a momentous calendar year, one like I’ve never experienced before, mostly because I wasn’t around in the 1960s, nor the 1860s.

  • Do the right thing... make an informed vote on Nov. 8

     With election day less than two weeks away, have you ever seen a time when people just seem to not care?

    Normally, during a presidential election, turnout might exceed 70 percent. In Bullitt County, where off-year elections may hover in the 20-20 percent range, 70 percent is pretty strong.

    When the current presidential campaign started -- what seems like years ago -- there was much enthusiasm.

    In Kentucky, for the first time a Republican caucus was held and the turnout was very good.

  • Congrats to Mills, Bullitt County for statewide honor

     It is always great to get a little recognition.

    Bullitt County needs as much good publicity as it can get these days.

    Last Wednesday, Bullitt County was in center stage in the state capitol in Frankfort.

    It was time for the annual Ashland Teacher of the Year recognition ceremony.

    For the first time ever, Bullitt County had the Middle School Teacher of the Year.

  • Carroll for Belcher

     Please allow me a few thoughtful moments as you prepare to cast your vote for someone to continue to strongly speak for you at your State Capitol in the Kentucky House of Representatives. As your former governor and now a state senator for some 12 years, I want to share with you that the re-election of Linda Belcher is vital to Bullitt County.

  • Mended Hearts says thanks

     We just wanted to say a special thank you to everyone who supported and participated in the Mended Hearts Third Annual Golf Scramble.

    We could not have had this success without your sponsorships, donations and participation to raise awareness for heart disease.

  • Curtis Hockenbury right choice

     The best news I have seen for Bullitt County in a long time is Curtis Hockenbury being elected mayor.

    I have known and worked with him for years and I know he will seek God’s guidance and wisdom and will be a public servant.
