Today's Opinions

  • Support education

     Thank you for the article you published on the Portable Planetarium at Maryville Elementary School. 

    Kaet Barron submitted the grant that was funded

    by the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education. This is just one fine example of the invocative ideas our teachers have that was funded by this Foundation.

  • Snowy week results in productive week at home

     We started the week of February 16 with the record-breaking snow levels in some parts of the state, and it ended with record low temperatures in others.

    In between, we endured more snow and saw the emergency workers and road crews of the state working hard to keep us safe. 

    With 100 Representatives covering all corners of the state, and the state police and transportation officials encouraging motorists to stay off the roads, House Leadership exercised caution and delayed legislative proceedings for the House of Representatives. 

  • 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. 

  • Does Bullitt County have connection to George Washington?

     Nathaniel Pope was born in 1603 in Gloucester, England. 

    In 1630, he married Lucy Anne Fox in England.  They started a family before leaving England and traveling to America.  Before leaving England, Nathaniel and Lucy had four children.  They were Nathaniel, William, Margaret and Elizabeth Pope.

    Nathaniel and his family boarded the ship which departed from England and made the long journey to America. 

  • Flurry of bills considered early in short session

     FRANKFORT -- The 2015 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly is nearing the halfway point, and with few days left to take up legislation a flurry of key bills passed in the House this past week.

    Among the bills passed in the House include allowing a local option sales tax in Kentucky, combating the growing issue of heroin in our Commonwealth, and proposals to raise the minimum wage and implement a smoking ban across the state.
