Today's Opinions

  • Smoking talks has brought out many opinions

        With three forums down and another to go, those advocating a smoking ban in public places in Bullitt County has heard a lot of opinions.

        Some are supportive of the ban in places such as restaurants and bars.

        Others aren’t quite as supportive.

        The final forum will be on Nov. 4 at the Bullitt County Health Department.

        The key is to get your voices out - no matter your side of the argument.

  • Worst North American speed trap cities

    WAUNAKEE, Wis. - For years, drivers from every U.S. state and Canadian province have reported speed trap locations to the National Motorists Association's National Speed Trap Exchange. As families squeeze in vacation time together this Labor Day weekend, before the school year begins in full swing, the roadways will be a very busy place for travelers.

  • County must do something to curb dropouts

    On Aug. 11 my editor, fellow staff writer and I visited most of Bullitt County’s 23 public schools for the first day of the new school year.

    Most of the schools I cover are in the east end so I started my first-first day of school as the newest reporter with The Pioneer News at Bullitt East taking pictures of students, faculty and staff before the bell rang.

    As I wandered the crowded front lobby searching for the perfect photo opportunities, I found myself looking back on the time I spent at BE as a student not so long ago.

  • To smoke or not to smoke, that is the question

    Throw out the statistics.

    Throw out the logic.

    It’s time for a good, old fashioned debate just about election time.

    A study conducted by the University of Kentucky shows that second-hand smoke is quite prevalent in public places in Bullitt County.

    Probably no big shock.

    However, when communities get upset when government leaders save them money by hiring a single sanitation contractor, what would be the reaction if they imposed a smoking ban in restaurants, bars and other entertainment venues?

    We are about to find out.
