Today's Opinions

  • No financial officer needed

     This letter is in response to the editorial that was in The Pioneer News on Monday, June 11, 2012. I am not writing about the budget in general, but I do question Judge Roberts need for a Financial Officer for Fiscal Court.

  • Sad to leave business

     I write this with great sadness.  I entered into medicine after my career as an Air Force pilot ended abruptly when I became ill.

    Once my cancer was in remission, I attended the University Of Louisville School Of Medicine, where I also completed my internship and residency in ophthalmology.  I was motivated to use my skills to continue to make as great a difference as possible in the lives of others.

  • Dinner show provides great evening

     For as long as I could remember I’ve been a patron of the fine arts, whether it’s perusing a museum or going to the theater.

  • COYLE'S CORNER 06/20/12

     This week Paul Coyle takes a look at the Bullitt Fiscal Court and its selection of a 2012-13 fiscal year county budget.

  • Thanks to Dad for everything that he did for us

     My dad believed in the Lord. He read the Bible all the time. You could ask him anything in the Bible and he could tell you about it. He would turn the pages and show you and tell you about it also.

    My mother and dad were church-going people. They even bought their own seat that had their name on it in church. They went to the same church until they died. Some time the church was so full of people you had trouble finding a seat, especially on Mother’s or Father’s Day.

  • This Venus event something special

     Like most people, if you had asked me what the Transit of Venus was I would have told you I had no idea.

  • COYLE'S CORNER 06/13/12

     This week Paul Coyle looks at Shepherdsville mayor Scott Ellis, who is excited about the city's updated financial situation. 

  • Men's Health Week

     Since President Clinton signed the bill on May 31, 1994 establishing National Men's Health Week, health organizations have placed special emphasis on educating the public about men's health issues the week of Father's Day. The purpose of Men's Health Week is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.
