Today's Opinions

  • 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. 

  • Proud of my ancestry

     I had the privilege to reach manhood in the early Sixties, when our society was teaching itself how to integrate. That was the word we used back then and it seemed natural and correct, although very difficult to achieve. 

    That term, along with many others has come and gone, to be replaced by other words that seemed to be more acceptable for some unknown reason. 

    They all mean the same thing though, that of coming together and that is where we as a society have failed.

  • Saying goodbye

     A couple of recent passings of note.

    Harry Cooper moved into the Hillview community from Highland Park and immediately made an impact.

    His first work in the city came with Operation Santa. He served as a helper to the real Santa Claus for a number of years.

    He was never afraid to tell you what he thought. Sometimes that meant going against the city fathers.

    He successfully ran for city council in Hillview. He was also unsuccessful in a bid for mayor.

  • Thanks from the VFW

     Thanks to all who attended our POW/MIA program at VFW Post 5710 Bullitt County Memorial.

    Post members led by our commander, James Anderson, and his officers and auxiliary members led by President Kathleen Coffey and her officers presented the program.

    Special guests were Judge Executive Melanie Roberts with her mother; Sixth District Auxiliary president Shaunia Eisenback and veteran Sherry Elmore Whitehouse, who explained the POW/MIA table and what each item symbolized.

    We must never forget those who have not returned home yet.
