  • Preserving the landlines

     AARP is fighting to preserve reliable phone service for the elderly and other citizens who rely on landline service for emergency purposes and to stay connected to their family, friends and communities.

    Telephone service is a basic necessity, particularly for older adults, who are more likely than any other age group to rely on landline service to maintain social contact and preserve health and safety.

    Competition in the telecommunications market can give consumers real choices and can promote their economic well-being.

  • Don’t try to overthink comprehensive land-use plan

     Over the past quarter-century, The Pioneer News’ editorial page has been filled at least once a year with something to the tune that Bullitt County needs more planning.

    That interest in planning for our future in an organized manner has not changed.

    And that is more than the common thought of planning and zoning land-use decisions.

    Yes, we do need to plan.

    And, yes, the revision of the comprehensive land-use plan, which hasn’t had a thorough study since 1997, is important.

  • BBB Warns: Beware March Madness Scams!

     With local teams making it into the NCAA Tournament, basketball fever is on the rise! BBB is warning basketball fans to be careful when buying tickets, travel deals, and basketball memorabilia.

  • Announcement perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s holiday

     The only thing missing on Monday afternoon was a little Irish whiskey and some leprechauns.

    The announcement that Portwest LLC would start its North American operations in Shepherdsville was perfect timing - an Irish company coming to Bullitt County on St. Patrick’s Day.

    The company, which has specialized in outerwear and safety protective wear for the past 100 years, has been a major supplier in Europe and Africa.

    Now, when it decided to move into new territories, Bullitt County was selected as its first distribution facility.

  • Consider the tax dollars
  • CASA needs volunteers

     If you have 3-4 hours per week and share our concern about abused and neglected children currently involved in the courts in Bullitt County, we would like to talk to you about being a new volunteer with the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) program. We currently have many more cases in the system than volunteers to cover them.

  • All students need programs

     Last week our Board of Education voted on and approved a new and amazing Math and Science program for middle school students. This program is called the Discovery school and allows our best of the best students from across our county to come together and dream of what can be at Hebron Middle School. For 108 young middle school students and their parents, this is an opportunity to excel. But what about all the other students in our schools?

  • Cost seems a little high

     I am writing this letter in regards to your story about the library Board buying the church and lot in Mount Washington for $400,000 and then paying approximately $150 more to have it torn down and then finding problems with asbestos and deciding to demolish the building.

    This is the same board that placed a cell phone tower on the end of the runway at Blue Lick Airport jeopardizing any future for the airport.
