Today's Opinions

  • Roads should be better

     Over the holidays I had the opportunity to travel across some of Kentucky’s highways and have to say that Bullitt County has THE WORST ROADS in Kentucky, HANDS DOWN.

    I just don’t get it. How is it that Bullitt County has JIM BEAM, AMAZON, ZAPPO’S, PUBLISHER’S PRINTING, GORDON FOODS, LOWE’S and a new WAL-MART under construction (to name just a few) and ALL THOSE TAXES are going where?????

  • School board members make key decisions

     It is already January and we are earnestly preparing for the next school year.

    Even in a “normal” school district, there a lot of things that must happen between January and August.

    I’m happy to say that BCPS is anything but a normal school district.

    We are fortunate to have a crop of educational leaders and teachers in this district who are never satisfied with the status quo.

  • No matter who represents us, voice opinions

     While it appears certain that there is no certainty on who represents Bullitt County in the General Assembly, it is certain that  you must make your voices heard.

    The 2014 General Assembly is back in session this week.

    Redistricting occurred last summer. Bullitt County had some changes in its alignment both in the House and in the Senate.

  • Best of Coyle: Winter Weather

     During a week of extreme cold temperatures, The Pioneer News looks back to a 2009 Coyle's Corner during an ice storm that was much worse.

  • TOPS Tells How to Enjoy an Outdoor Winter Workout

     MILWAUKEE, WI – Winter is here, along with the temptation to curl up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa all season long. Chilly temperatures deter many from exercising outdoors, and while some prefer to head to the gym to keep up their fitness routine, seasonal activities can also offer great full-body workouts, says TOPS Club, Inc.® (Take Off Pounds Sensibly®), the nonprofit weight-loss support organization. Consider the following activities to break out of your routine and stave off winter weight gain.

  • Smoke-free in jeopardy

     A healthier, Smoke-Free Bullitt County is in jeopardy!  On Tuesday morning, January 7, 2014, at 9:30 am, the Bullitt County Fiscal Court will meet again for a possible vote on ordinance No. 13-32, which regulates smoking in buildings, workplaces and facilities owned or operated by Bullitt County.  

  • Becoming independent

     Some people have been wondering if I am going to run for election to political office in 2014.

    Me too, frankly.

    Only God knows what the future will hold, but I have finally decided to not run.

    Additionally, my wife and I have changed our political affiliation to “Independent.”

    That decision alone probably assures the end of any hope to serve in elected office.  But we agreed that we see so much negative, so much blind politics, from both major parties today that we really no longer wanted to be tied to either.
