Today's Opinions

  • Audit worth expense

     I feel the money spent on the recent county audit was money well spent.

    I like specifics and there were none.

    It may be classified info but being a tax payer and if we have a right to know, then tell us what’s going on or what we’re missing, if anything.

    We’re all adults here I hope. Whenever there’s only one person in control of all the financial paperwork we’re asking for trouble.

  • We don't need help

     Several comments made in this article (Jan. 1, about new Shepherdsville firehouse) caught my attention.

    The article states, “Eventually, Troutman ( Chief Layne Troutman) said the growth along Highway 245 may require a small station in that area.”

    Apparently Chief Troutman has not been out to the Highway 245 area in some time. We have a Wonderful seven (7) bay, state of the art fire station located next to Bernheim Forest.

  • Thank you

     To each and every one that donated to the benefit for St. Jude Children Hospital at ValuMarket in Mount Washington, from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget your kindness.

  • Don't hurt Medicare

     Under the new tax plan about to become law, the resulting deficit will trigger Medicare cuts under existing pay-as-you-go rules. 

    The cuts would reduce payments to doctors and other medical service providers causing some to choose dropping Medicare patients. AARP has presented a letter to Congressional leaders urging them to prevent this catastrophe.

    Nearly 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day over the next 15 years and those of us long past that age will tell you how vital Medicare has been to us.

  • Impact of insurance

     Kidney disease impacts thousands of Kentuckians. As a social worker, I take on the role as an advocate for my patient’s. They rely on me to ensure they receive the care they need and are treated fairly. Healthcare continues to be a hot topic in the media, but there is one little known issue that deeply threatens my patients’ access to care.

  • It Happened in DECEMBER

     We will be looking back 10, 30, 50, 70, and 90 years to see what was being printed in The Pioneer News in 2007, 1987, 1967, 1947, and 1927 in the month of December.
