Today's Opinions

  • School board accountability

     The article in the July 7,2014 Pioneer News, front page above the fold,  stated that Bullitt Central High School opened in 1970 and the building does not have a proper firewall.

    Whoa! Let just hold on for a minute. Forty-four years without a proper firewall; how many thousands of students spent four years of their lives in that building? Now we have a board member jumping up and down because it may take $62,435 to correct the problem and make the building safer for thousands more Bullitt Central High School students.

  • More changes made to circuit clerk’s office

     More changes have been made at the Clerk’s office in an effort to serve you better. 

    For years the Clerk’s office has been the “middle man” for Bullitt Countians scheduling road tests.  As many of you are aware, the state police actually administer the permit tests and the road tests. 

  • Musical skills to be on display

     Sometimes you just have to take a chance.

    Over the past few years, the Bullitt County Public School System has not been afraid to try new things.

    This summer, knowing that the district is full of very talented youngsters who are interested in the performing arts, the district tried a new program.

    The goal of this program was to produce a summer musical for the public to see.

    The work of staff and students will be put on display this week as Sleeping Beauty will be performed at the Bullitt Central auditorium.

  • Improved radio communication must occur as soon as possible

      It is a scary story to hear.

    Police officers and firefighters talk about the inability at times to communicate with each other or with central dispatch.

    Over the course of the past year, the major complaint has come from those first responders in northern Bullitt County.

    It seems that if officers or firefighters are inside buildings, such as schools, radio transmission with the outside world is spotty, at best.

    This is disturbing.

    More importantly, it could be fatal.
