Today's Opinions

  • Take a real poll

     I am extremely surprised and saddened to see the recent steam-rolling of the citizens in Bullitt County by an entity supposedly on our side.

    The ‘survey’ taken by the Health Department on the proposed ‘Smoking Ban’ and the results presented to the public is an example of stretching the numbers to suit the situation, while completely fooling the public into believing the issue is protecting citizens from cigarette smoke - when in fact it is truly a step at MORE government policing of our daily lives. 

  • New law not needed

     We all know meth labs are a problem, but there is already a procedure in place to control the sale of “over the counter cold medications,” that contain pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine is an ingredient in the manufacture of meth. Pharmacists already are required to check ID’s, record, and report who buys these “over the counter” meds. Your Bullitt County Rep., Linda Belcher is sponsoring a bill in Frankfort that would require all law-abiding citizens to get a doctor’s prescription in order to buy simple cold medications.
