Today's Opinions

  • Christmas comes early for those who live in Shepherdsville

     There was a bit of apprehension among members of a committee working to beautify the city of Shepherdsville.

    What would the people think if the city spent some money to install Christmas decorations this year?

    We think they would be overjoyed.

    We think many would say that it is about time the city looked at ways to beautify the community, especially a downtown area which has suffered for years.

    We think, unfortunately, that most citizens and business owners won’t care.

  • Saying goodbye

     A final goodbye to a person who didn’t make the headlines.

    Sharon Hand was heavily involved in the Scouts and then got involved in the city of Hillview.

    First, she helped on the Hillview Emergency Response Team.

    Then, she was hired as the city’s code enforcement office.

    She wasn’t a person who wanted the spotlight. She only wanted to help her community.

    Sadly, she passed much too soon. Sharon was a true asset to the Hillview community.

    Also passing recently was Carroll Cogan.

  • County must resolve issue or it will continue to ‘dog’ officials

      We hope by the time gets into your hands that the county will have made a big decision on the future of its animal control program.

    The future of its program has been in a state of flux for months.

    Animal control officer Mark Williams had come under heat of the county judge. In fact, Melanie Roberts fired Williams but fiscal court members voted to reinstate him.

    But, he almost immediately went on medical leave, which is perfectly legal.

    The problem is that the 12-week period of his medical leave has passed.

  • 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.

  • 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.
