Today's Opinions

  • School board accountability

     The article in the July 7,2014 Pioneer News, front page above the fold,  stated that Bullitt Central High School opened in 1970 and the building does not have a proper firewall.

    Whoa! Let just hold on for a minute. Forty-four years without a proper firewall; how many thousands of students spent four years of their lives in that building? Now we have a board member jumping up and down because it may take $62,435 to correct the problem and make the building safer for thousands more Bullitt Central High School students.

  • THANKS

     The Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education wants to publicly thank the Bullitt County community for its support for the 2014 Bullitt County Derby Affair.

    This event was a wonderful success as the foundation clearly nearly $11,000. This is month that will be made available to the educators in our Bullitt County public schools through a competitive grant process.

    First, always beware of short meeting agendas.

    Second, often it is better to laugh than to cry.

    Both came into play at a recent meeting of Bullitt Fiscal Court.

    Things were flying along. One hour and things were about to wrap up.

    One more topic - not on the agenda - was mentioned. It was a serious topic but it quickly moved into the comedy genre.

  • Blast, city fair proves two can work together

     FRANKFORT – We are only a few days away from marking the 238th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence, when a young nation stood up against the oppression of the British Monarchy and sought to create a country ‘for the people, and by the people.’

    While July 4th is a time for us to reflect on the formation of the United States and the ups and downs of remaining the one true free nation in the world, we must sometimes wonder if the meaning of the day gets lost in cookouts and fireworks.
