Today's Opinions

  • Veterans are honored in many ways

    There is no way to ever say enough about those who have fought in war to protect our country.

    There is never any way to express in words the gratitude that we should feel about those who have served in the military - in any way.

    Veterans Day is held each November.

    Particularly since Sept. 11, 2001, it is gratifying to see the growth of ceremonies held to honor the veterans.

    In Bullitt County, there are many more schools hosting events to honor veterans and this is a great message to send.

  • Real life is scariest tale of Halloween

    Amidst the creeps and crawls of the scary Halloween holiday I am always reminded of the one thing that is scariest of all: Real life.

    When you think about it, Bullitt County can sometimes be spookier than a haunted house. It's not just groups hunting for ghosts and researchers contemplating the potential end of the world. Just living through a regular day can give you the skivvies.

  • Traffic signal needed for north Preston

    Hold on for a wild ride.

    We’re not talking about an amusement park. We’re talking about the various traffic projects throughout the county.

    While figuring out how to get on and off Interstate 65 has been a mystery for many the past couple of months, there is a new maze game to play on Highway 61.

    As road crews work to get the four-lane extension from Cardinal Drive to the John Harper Highway completed, motorists had better put on their helmets and pretend to be a Formula I road racer as there are some interesting twists and turns.

  • Can you believe Christmas, election time approaching

    As my nine-year-old continues to remind me daily, it’s just over two months to Christmas.

    Of course, my response is that every day is Christmas to many children, including my own.

    But as we approach that time of year, it also means that it is time to flip the old calendar.

    Yes, 2010 will be another year but for many it will be a special year -- it is an election year.

    From a journalist’s standpoint, it is awful.

    I guess if you were covering a national election, it might be different. You would be covering a particular candidate.

  • Speak up now to voice opinions on alcohol sales issue

    Here is your chance to be heard on the sale of alcohol on Sundays.

    In Hillview, a committee has recommended that Sunday sales be allowed for restaurants and certain other establishments. There are requirements which must be met.

    The council will hear the recommendations of the committee at its next meeting, set for Monday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m. Come out if you have an opinion.

    In Shepherdsville, registered voters in the city limits can give their opinion on the same topic. Voting machines will be set up on Dec. 3-4 at city hall.
