Today's Opinions

  • Positives in school system

     I want to write this letter that seems to be positive about our Bullitt County Public Schools.

    At the end of September, I lost my wife to stage 4 breast cancer. My son attends North Bullitt High School. The day of the funeral I was set back and could not believe my eyes. The principal had let his baseball team and friends sign out to attend the funeral. The coaches and some of the parents also attended.

    In all my years of hearing negativity about our schools, that to see all these people as a family come to pay their respects was amazing.

  • Greatest Community
  • Yet another humorous way to look at holiday season of local history

     It’s usually the most wonderful time of the year, but politics can even affect North Pole protocol.

    After hundreds of years of running things on his own, Santa Claus decided to allow for the distribution of North Pole Christmas duties to staff members that would help ease his workload.

    “At the time it was a great plan,” said North Pole spokeself Ivy Dinkelschmirter. “Kind of like Great Britain, we have leaders for various things but Santa was still the royalty.”

  • Big dose of leadership best gift for county crew

      It is that time each year where we send a few gifts to individuals and agencies in Bullitt County.

    In the past, Santa Barr has tried to mix a little humor into his gifts. But, we’ll leave the humor to much more skilled writers than myself.

    Besides, there are serious times and that calls for serious discussions.

    First, the members of Bullitt Fiscal Court need to wish for, and receive, a big dose of leadership.

  • Small donation goes long way for local charities

     Tis the season to be jolly, even if you stress yourself to the limits of humanity to do so.

    At The Pioneer News our editorial staff remains busy, covering many Christmas events throughout Bullitt County. We enjoy Christmas like everyone else, with shopping and gifting and decorating and cookies and carols and TV specials.

  • BBB Warns of Counterfeit Travelers Checks

     Better Business Bureau serving Louisville, Southern Indiana, and Western Kentucky is warning consumers and businesses of counterfeit American Express Travelers Checks that have been reported by a local Louisville WalMart. Two transactions were paid for with the fake travelers checks and totaled over $2,4000. The individual used twenty-four $100 checks which were not signed after giving them to the associate at the register.

  • Saying Goodbye

     Benny Stillwell served a number of years as police chief for the city of Shepherdsville.

    During most of my tenure, Benny spent in the city’s public works department.

    A good person who always seemed to help out all the city’s departments no matter the need.

    He will be missed.

    When I saw the docket for the Bullitt County Board of Adjustments meeting and there was an application for a variance for a high-rise sign, I always thought of Morris Longacre.

    The passing of Morris is a bit more personal.

  • Time for prayer

     First of all I was a sinner, saved by the grace of God just as you were.

    Second, I am a disabled veteran of World War II and proud of it. I have been in church as long as I can remember. I can see a drastic change in our society and the church today.

    At one time, our nation wasknown as a Christian nation. Not today.

    And the church today is filled with so much rock throwing back and forth and gossip. This is sin within itself and yet there are some who act so holy holy and they are the ones who are throwing the rocks and gossip.
