Today's Opinions

  • Plenty of movie ideas here in Bullitt County

    It’s okay to be a little scared at Halloween. It’s actually kind of fun. Old traditions of days past used to literally frighten people. Today they are a constant source of Halloween entertainment.

    Trick-or-treaters are the most common take on this change. Kids used to dress as hobos and tramps, begging for candy and treats. Now they dress up from the best-known celebrities to the creepiest of souls.

  • Now let's get to work folks

    The elections are over and we know the playing field in January.

    Whether it is in the White House or in the city hall chambers, there are tough times that must be addressed by all.

    The country has taken an historic step in the election of Barack Obama. We must rally behind the new president and we must demand that steps are taken to return the country to its economic standing.

    We must look at our local leaders -- many of whom will be taking office for the first time. There will a mix of the old and new. It will take leadership to bring the sides together.

  • Beware of scams associated with storms

    Let me first say that it has been heartening to see communities across Kentucky pull together to help those in need following the devastating windstorm that swept across our state on September 14. 

    Families were put to the test with damaged homes, loss of power and in some cases, the loss of life.

    As Kentuckians so often do when faced with adversity, we responded with kindness, compassion and concern for our neighbors.

  • Consider the cost of osteoporosis to us all

    Total fractures were over 2 million, costing nearly $17 billion in 2005, according to a study published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.

    Osteoporosis is more than a disease that affects the elderly.

    Why?

    The population is aging, this means more and more people are reaching the high-risk age for osteoporosis-age 50.

    It also means the burden of the cost is falling on fewer and fewer workers.

    It is not just hip fractures either.

  • First lady visit super

    No matter your political persuasion, the visit on Monday by First Lady Laura Bush was wonderful.

    Seldom does Shepherdsville and Bullitt County have an opportunity to shine on something that is positive.

    Yes, Monday’s appearance was a political stump for the Republican Party. There is no doubt of that.

    But it was also a historic opportunity for Bullitt County.

    Many in the crowd of 1,000 weren’t members of the Republican Party. Some were there to support the party; others were there to see the First Lady.

  • It's all about a smile

    Smile Kentucky! addresses what the U.S. Surgeon General calls the most common chronic childhood disease in this country, tooth decay.

    The program, created in 2002, is a community partnership to improve the oral health of children. Since its beginning, Smile Kentucky! has provided dental education programs to 75,000 children, dental screening to over 21,000, and free treatment to over 1,300 children. The program works with elementary schools in Louisville Metro, Bullitt County, Spencer, Henry, Nelson, and Oldham.
