Today's Opinions

  • Simon, Hardy real heroes

    On Oct. 21, 2015, Ms. Thompson stated in the Pioneer News that Gloria Taft and Dana James saved the city of Shepherdsville from the brink of bankruptcy.

    Well, I want to set the record straight. In 2011, six council members (Faith Portman, Don Cundiff, Bonnie Enlow, Larry Hatfield, Bernie Brown and Alan Wetzel), the mayor, Nick Simon with Publishers Printing and Bill Hardy with The Peoples Bank of Bullitt County worked together as a team to save the city of Shepherdsville from bankruptcy.

  • Don’t forget to get out to vote next Tuesday

     No, Donald Trump will not be on the ballot next Tuesday when the voting machines are open in Bullitt County.

    To cast your opinion about the flashy leader of the GOP primary polls, or to show your support for Hillary Clinton, you will have to wait until next spring.

    What you will decide on Tuesday is who will be your leadership team in Frankfort for the next four years.

    We’re  not here to endorse anyone.

    What we do endorse is that you go out to the polls.

  • Horrific stories can be told on movie screens from events in Bullitt County

    There’s no doubt in this cynical journalist’s mind that 2015 has been the scariest year in some time.

    The shootings and threats, the scandals, the ethics charges, the upcoming presidential election campaign starting a year early…it’s all pretty creepy.

    Sometimes both you, the beloved reader, and I both experience the burnout of story after story dealing with so much blatant negativity and drama. Sometimes we just need to step back and enjoy the fun things in life… like vampires, spiders, witches and ghoulish creatures.

  • Thanks to all my friends

     To all the postal patrons, acquaintances and friends at the post offices in Mount Washington, Brooks and Hillview, thank you for the opportunity to serve you for the last 26 years. I retired on Oct. 10. I will miss the visits, the stories and the laughter that we have shared. I will not miss getting up at 4 a.m. or going to bed before dark.

    I am looking forward to pursuing my hobbies of gardening, building yard art and song writing for You Tube.

  • Conway choice for governor

     Bullitt County has an opportunity Nov. 3 to move forward with the election of Jack Conway as governor.

    Conway has made his message clear, particularly in the areas of a stronger economy and support of early childhood education. He understands that investing in the early years of a child’s learning produces positive benefits for the future of that child.
