  • Best of Paul Coyle: New Year's Day

     This week's Best of Coyle is a classic from New Year's Day 2009.

  • Working together throughout the year very important

     FRANKFORT - When you think of the Christmas season, what comes to mind?

    Perhaps going to your child’s holiday play at their school?

    Or fighting the crowds at your local mall to get the newest smart phone?

    For most of us, Christmas is a time to give thanks for what we have been given in the past 12 months, and share the goodwill with family and friends to remember why we celebrate Christmas every December.

    It’s also about the hope we have on Christmas and every day for the future of our nation and our Commonwealth.

  • Times are always special during the holiday season

     FRANKFORT - It may seem to start a little earlier every year, and it may fatten our waistlines while it thins our wallets, but there really is no time more special than the holidays.

    That is especially true here in the Commonwealth, where there is always something to do to get in the spirit of the season, from Christmas parades and concerts to numerous events at our churches, schools and state parks.

  • Santa Barr pulls something out of hat at last minute

     With the hours suddenly becoming minutes, it is time for Santa Barr to leap into action.

    Feeling like Mike Farner and waiting until the final moment to write this annual column, I quickly forced down a Snickers bar.

    I am back to normal. And Farner is still normal as he procrastinated even longer than I. But not only did he run out of time but he also found himself out of space.

    Without further delay, the deer have been fed and my belly is full for a long night of delievering packages to the good little boys and girls.

  • Best of Paul Coyle: Christmas

     This Christmas The Pioneer News does not forget our beloved long-time cartoonist, Paul Coyle, who always enjoyed spreading holiday cheer. We offer a Coyle Christmas panel from 2010 as a gift to our subscribers this season.

  • BBB Tips on Returns and Exchanges

     Each year, BBB receives calls after the holidays from upset consumers who are stuck with items they cannot return. This holiday season, BBB wants to remind consumers to know their rights. BBB offers this advice on returns/exchanges:

    Returns are a store policy – not a law. Find out about a store’s return policies before making a purchase. Some stores require products be returned within a specific period of time.

  • Writer provides very unique look at upcoming holiday

     As I continue to cover Bullitt County over the past month, people say to me, “Farner (remember the good ol’ days when I used to get confused with younger co-workers?), are you going to write another one of those hilarious Christmas stories again this year?”

    Well, it’s not always that easy to be funny. Sure, in Bullitt County there’s always something to poke fun at, but sometimes my thoughts go elsewhere.

  • BBB: Target Credit Card Attack – CHECK YOUR ACCOUNTS!

     BBB is warning, if you shopped at Target lately, CHECK YOUR ACCOUNTS. The store announced it has been hit by a major credit-card attack involving up to 40 million consumer accounts. The credit card breach took place between November 27 and December 15, 2013. It involves the theft of information stored on the magnetic stripe on the backs of cards used at nearly all of Target's stores around the country.
