  • Get involved in your school system in 2010

        The school year is upon us. Whether your child or grandchild is in the public or private sector, classes will be beginning in the next few weeks.

        At no time in our history are we asking more of our teachers, our administrators and our students. We are also asking more of our parents and guardians.

        As the country shifts from manufacturing to service to technology, our educational system has had to change. We all know that change is not easy.

  • Board makes decision no one wants to make

        Have you ever heard anyone say, “I love to raise taxes”?

        Probably not.

        The Bullitt County Public School Board members were faced with an interesting dilemma the other night.

        Do they increase the real property tax rate by 0 percent, 2 percent or 4 percent?

        After the motion to take the middle road failed, members were faced with either receive no additional revenue for the next year or take in about $1.5 million.

  • College students can learn to make, save money

    Know your bank balance

        While you’re in college, it’s important to carefully monitor your spending.

        You should know your general bank balance each time you make a transaction, because if you try to debit money that isn’t there, you will bounce a check or your card will deny the purchase.

        By balancing your account every month, you can keep track of your money and any bank fees, sometimes even spotting a rare error.

  • Writer still likes holiday games

        I still enjoy celebrating holidays, so much that I always supply a list each month at www.pioneernews.net.

        That way Bullitt County can share the experience with me.

        One of the bigger holidays, Labor Day, is approaching, which has me wondering what everyone will be doing over the extended weekend.
