Today's Opinions

  • Students have choice of reaching greatness

     One of my favorite leadership researchers is Jim Collins, who wrote a classic business book called Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t.

    In that book, you can find the following sentence: “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.

    This can be applied to far more than making a business successful.

  • Thanks for agencies for their help in time of need

     A wild week to say the least.

    First, you get the snow and the cold.

    That is always a situation of chaos.

    Then, fire strikes the back portion of our business.

    The important part of the incident is that no one was hurt.

    The inventory and the building structure can be replaced. Lives can’t.

  • 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.
