Today's Opinions

  • Incentives should put county on right road

     You can have the best educational system in the world but if you can’t get kids to and from school, there is no education system.

    For the past couple of years, Bullitt County -- as well as many other districts -- have had a problem recruiting school bus drivers.

    And they have been having trouble retaining those that were employed.

    Recently, the Bullitt County Public School Board voted on a package of incentives which should help those currently employed, as well as those who might consider coming to this district for a job.

  • Bullitt Woman’s Club remembers Diana Sue Calvert

     Today our article is a tribute to one of our members Diana Sue Calvert. She joined the Woman’s Club in 2007 she was a faithful club woman and a great friend to everyone she knew.

  • Support education

     Thank you for the article you published on the Portable Planetarium at Maryville Elementary School. 

    Kaet Barron submitted the grant that was funded

    by the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education. This is just one fine example of the invocative ideas our teachers have that was funded by this Foundation.

  • Meat-free in Lent is healthy, too

     This Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, when many Christians abstain from animal foods in remembrance of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the desert before launching his ministry.

    But meat-free Lent is much more than a symbol of religious devotion to  Christ. It helps reduce the risk of chronic disease, environmental degradation, and animal abuse.

  • No rentals in subdivision

     I live in The Pointe subdivision and do not agree that homes should be rented or leased in our subdivision.

  • Commend medical, fire employees

     My husband, my sisters and I want to commend the personnel at Jewish South Medical Center, Bullitt County EMS, 911 Dispatch and Zoneton Fire Department for their professionalism over the last several months in responding to many 911 calls for my brother.

    The care and concern they gave my brother who ultimately passed away on Jan. 20, 2015, at Jewish South was comforting at such a traumatic time.

    They did everything possible to save him and support the family. 

  • Lemons not the answer

     It is extremely irresponsible for the Pioneer News to publish, almost uncritically, a claim that lemons prevent and possibly cure cancer. 

    I am talking about Jim Davidson’s column on page A-5 of the 02-11-2015 issue.

    Putting a disclaimer at the beginning and a short “the jury is still out” at the end of the column is NOT SUFFICIENT when you are printing a claim like that. 

  • Five ways to save money for spring fishing, turkey hunting

     FRANKFORT - Although the price of a gallon of gas is lower than at any time in recent memory, not many folks have extra money to burn.

    This is especially true for non-essential things such as fishing reels, shotguns, hunting clothing or fishing waders. Adult commitments such as your mortgage must be paid before any money goes toward a new spinning reel. Obtaining quality hunting and fishing gear inexpensively is a useful skill for outdoors enthusiasts to learn.
