Today's Opinions

  • Thanks for benefit

     Thank you for participating in the David Rummage Memorial Benefit on Friday, July 19, 2013!  The staff and volunteers would like to thank you for your kindness, support, and/or donation(s) during the planning of this event. 

  • Post Office must fix woes

     The Post Office would have made over 400,000 dollars in 2012, but for a death stroke bill passed in December 2006 which mandated that within 10 years the Post Office had to pony up 75 years in advance for all the healthcare benefits of all the postal retirees. This burden cost the Post Office over 6 billion dollars a year. That kind of burden would kill any department of business, especially when it is regulated by a postal commission.

  • Remember to say thanks

     Many times in my life I have failed to stop what I was doing long enough to tell someone thanks for a job well done. Today I am putting things aside to stop and commend Doris Owen not only for her many years of service as Administrative Assistant to the former directors of E.D.A. She worked for many years and reached the point of wishing to retire. Later when Mr. Faust resigned the Board requested Doris to consider coming back to work which she was kind enough to do.

  • Go out and visit Shepherdsville’s first City Fair

     For years, the city of Shepherdsville had a festival to culminate the summer.

  • Addressing statements

     Recent paid advertising in the Pioneer News directed at the current elected administration of the City of Shepherdsville and the lack of a follow up inquire by the Pioneer News has prompted me to respond to the paid advertising. 

  • Ploetner retires her pen following years of taking down history of fiscal court

     After over two decades of recording the sights and sounds and motions of Bullitt Fiscal Court members, Donna Ploetner can sit back and relax.

  • Responsibility pie should be enjoyed by all

      Everyone enjoys a nice pie of pie.

  • Local athletes fared well with college recruiters

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Without a doubt, this past school year produced a record number of local athletes signing to play college sports starting in the fall.

         How do I know it is a record number? Because we’re almost to the middle of July and I am still running the stories here in The Pioneer News and have been pretty much for the past six weeks or since the end of the baseball and softball season. At one point in early June, I had a list of 15 signing stories that had been collected and not yet put in the paper.
