  • Proposed pension plan not right

     On behalf of the teachers, administrators and support staff of Bullitt County Public Schools, I urge you to oppose the pension bill put forth by Governor Bevin late week.   

    Almost everyone recognizes that this is a serious issue and appreciates very much that Governor Bevin has determined to take action to rectify a problem that has festered for years.

  • Thank you

     To each and every one that donated to the benefit for St. Jude Children Hospital at ValuMarket in Mount Washington, from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget your kindness.

  • Don't hurt Medicare

     Under the new tax plan about to become law, the resulting deficit will trigger Medicare cuts under existing pay-as-you-go rules. 

    The cuts would reduce payments to doctors and other medical service providers causing some to choose dropping Medicare patients. AARP has presented a letter to Congressional leaders urging them to prevent this catastrophe.

    Nearly 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day over the next 15 years and those of us long past that age will tell you how vital Medicare has been to us.

  • Impact of insurance

     Kidney disease impacts thousands of Kentuckians. As a social worker, I take on the role as an advocate for my patient’s. They rely on me to ensure they receive the care they need and are treated fairly. Healthcare continues to be a hot topic in the media, but there is one little known issue that deeply threatens my patients’ access to care.

      FRANKFORT – The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) and Kentucky State Police (KSP) is reminding motorists to be responsible behind the wheel as the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign continues through Jan. 1, 2018.

  • Support the mayor

     WOW, I could not believe my eyes, when I walked out to my paper box and got my wonderful Pioneer News paper and saw one of the headlines, that stated, “BROWN CALLS FOR MAYOR TO RESIGN!” 

    After reading the article, I could not understand, why former council member Brown would even consider that. Let me tell you why, I could not believe that. It was both Mr. Brown & Mr. Hatfield who pushed all of our GREAT CITIZENS to call the council and appoint Mr. Hockenbury to fill the remaining term of Mayor Scott Ellis.

  • Homeless situation

     Increasing numbers of homeless people are living in our community  -- Bullitt County, Kentucky. Families are living in substandard shelter, and in some case they are living outdoors. Parents and children are being split up in order to acquire safe shelter. Children are hanging out at local restaurants and the library just to have a warm, dry place to spend their afterschool hours, if they are even in school. This is a problem in need of a good solution.
