Today's Opinions

  • Apprenticeship programs important in state

     The Commonwealth, along with many other states across this nation, is struggling to find highly-skilled workers to fill scores of job in the manufacturing, health care, agriculture, and trade industries such as electrical, carpentry, plumbing, and telecommunications.

  • Season to give many thanks

     The leaves fell and the weather grew cooler as we transition into this blustery November.

    As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, the Legislature continues to hold Interim Joint Committee meetings throughout the Commonwealth and in Frankfort.

  • Bullitt County gets high marks for role in JCTC success

     In a world of change in the post-secondary education field, Bullitt County is still a strong community.

    At least, in the eyes of the president of Jefferson Community and Technical College.

    Dr. Ty Handy was the keynote speaker at the recent Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce annual dinner.

    With 12,000 students enrolled in JCTC classes, the biggest growth remains in the dual credit courses.

    High school students take courses that will fulfill their graduation requirements, as well as earn college credits.

  • Proposed pension plan not right

     On behalf of the teachers, administrators and support staff of Bullitt County Public Schools, I urge you to oppose the pension bill put forth by Governor Bevin late week.   

    Almost everyone recognizes that this is a serious issue and appreciates very much that Governor Bevin has determined to take action to rectify a problem that has festered for years.

  • Games too pricey

     I would like to address the Bullitt County athletic directors, or the Board of Education, as to who sets the prices for high school basketball games.

    Every game that I have attended this year, the cost for admission has been $6 and that is for adults and students. College students event get a discount to attend games for their schools.

    There are weeks when there are two or three games at $6 admission that can get pricey, especially for teens who work hard for their money.

    These games can also be pricey for families who have multiple children.

  • Keep your trash

     My name is Elizabeth Dennis Owen. I live on Flatlick Road. You don’t know me but there are times when you are driving by, you toss your garbage and it lands in my front yard.

    Sometimes you are walking when you have garbage you want to get rid of. 

    I don’t throw my garbage in your front yard but if you would like for me to return the favor, just send me your address. I will see what I can do to accommodate you.

  • Vote for Belcher

     I have known Linda Belcher for over 40 years. She and late  husband (Larry Belcher) were dedicated educators since 1970. She taught school, was an assistant principal and a principal, and was director of transportation in Bullitt County.

    She continued in working in education as an instructor at U of L.

  • Thanks from HOPE

     The board members of HOPE of Bullitt County would like to say thank you to those who took their time to help make our program a success.
