Today's Opinions

  • Stop child abuse forever

       In observance of Child Abuse Month in April, a nine-year-old student at Crossroads Elementary wrote the following essay:

  • Small issues may become big issues on facility’s use

     It’s kind of funny how quickly one discussion can lead to another and how a non-issue becomes a major issue.

    Shepherdsville mayor Curtis Hockenbury and the council started a recent conversation about whether an agency could be given access to the community center several hours a day.

    Before you could bat an eye, the public works department would take over the use of the Shepherdsville Community Center and several groups would be left looking for other options.

    The decision took a matter of minutes.

  • Schools only stability for 300 homeless kids

     Instead of starting your morning with breakfast, you start by packing up your things. 

    Your mom says our stay at the hotel is over and we have to find a new place to go.

    You’re late to school again because mom’s car wouldn’t start this morning and you had to find a ride there. 

    She kisses you goodbye telling you everything will be okay, but you’re not so sure.

    Your stomach rumbles, but you’re too late for breakfast. 

  • Don’t be blinded by an eclipse scam

     The solar eclipse is now just days away, and BBB serving Louisville, Southern Indiana, and Western Kentucky is reminding consumers to think smart while preparing for this event. While this is an exciting time, scammers may try to take advantage of the situation.

  • Public health officials issue advice for safe viewing of upcoming solar eclipse

     FRANKFORT - The Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) is warning the public not to directly look at the upcoming solar eclipse on Aug. 21 without the proper equipment and techniques.

  • Appreciate the help

     Recently, on the way home from Kentucky Down Under, I had a flat tire in my Jeep on I-65 Northbound right before the 480 exit.

    I called AAA who assured me I was a top priority and they would arrive in 20 minutes. I had my four children with me. It was 90 degrees.

    After waiting 35 minutes, I called AAA again and was told 15-30 minutes. I called a third time and was told the driver was on the way.

  • Serving the homeless

     There is no doubt about it, Bullitt County has a homeless population.

    Room in the Inn – BC (RITI) is in its 26th month serving this population  with great success.  RITI has not missed a night of service since inception. 

    Along with nightly shelter, RITI provides meals, transportation and resource  connections to men, women and children across Bullitt County.

  • Remember the Community

     In response to the July 5 newspaper report about the Bullitt County Economic Development Authority considering to push recruiting more commercial development in addition to industrial development, I’d just like to say that could be good.

    But I offer this friendly reminder to all officials that the ultimate purpose of government and related entities should be to improve the lives of regular people, residents, and families in the county.
