Today's Opinions

  • Time to prove you really care about county

        Next Tuesday is what democracy is all about.

        You have the opportunity to make your voice heard on how you would like your local and federal government to be driven for the next few years.

        There is much discussion about how many people are disenchanted with government. This is nothing new.

  • Police, BBB warn of roof, paving scam

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The buyer should always beware.

    That is the message sent out by the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department and the Better Business Bureau.

    After a local couple was scammed by a roofing and paving contractor, Det. Scotty McGaha of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department said his investigations, along with the BBB, has resulted in five scam operations.

  • Did anyone get the number on that big train?

        Let us all partake in a polygraph test to determine how many of us knew the outcome of the Nov. 2 elections.

        I knew there were very few races that might even be considered a “lock”. However, I didn’t realize how many people were not pleased with what has happened in recent history in government.

        It was definitely not a good day to be a Democrat or an incumbent.

        The groundswell of discontent spread throughout the country. Few felt it would trickle down to the local level.

  • Never too soon to get ready for flu

        It’s hard to believe, but flu season is upon us.

        Seasonal Influenza, also known as the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness. This means that it can affect your nose, throat, bronchial tubes, and lungs.

        It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The best way to prevent or lessen the severity of the flu is to be vaccinated every fall.            

  • Simon says, rights slipping away

        Like school kids atop a snow-covered hill during a driving storm - oblivious to conditions around them - so health nannies stand, gleefully ready to push us and our freedoms down a slippery slope leading to a ride that might not offer so much fun.

        I don’t question the motives behind a smoking-ban proposal now under consideration by the Bullitt County Health Department and its Board of Health. They and many - including me - have grave concerns about the health of Kentuckians.

  • Private road issue could be filled with holes

    Most stories do have two sides. And most issues have at least two sides.

    In the case of whether planners should limit or even prohibit new private roads is a tough issue.

    Recently, a family in Mount Washington was interested in selling a farm. They were not interested in becoming developers.

    They wanted to get rid of the property for the best price to settle an estate.

    The family retained an auction company to do that.
