Today's Opinions

  • Education can come in many ways, shapes

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - How do you grade a student’s education?

    Is it by the grades on the report card?

    Could it be by the scores on the ACT or other tests?

    Could it be by the manners a child shows in every day life?

    Could it be by the maturity gained and the common sense acquired to survive in life?

    Could it be by the number of friends a person has or the friends maybe on Facebook?

    Could it be that you really can’t grade a student until years after he or she has graduated from the school system?

  • Thanks from Roby

     We would like to thank the following for their support to the Roby Elementary PTA Spring Auction:

  • Thanks from Belcher

      THANK YOU to all of the people of Bullitt County who let me put a sign in your yard, who helped me pas out literature, and who voted for me a your State Representative District 49. Your support means so much to me!

  • Special First Pitch from Mama Eagle

     Margie Reece throws out the first pitch at the regional baseball game between North Bullitt and DeSales.

    Reece is retiring as assistant principal at the school and will become the new principal at St. Anthanasius School in Jefferson County.

    She was a major supporter of the sports teams at NB.


  • Various ways to take results of May primary

     Some casual observations about the recent occurrence we call the spring primary election:

    *First - thanks to all those who stuck your necks, and pocketbooks, out to run for office.

    It takes a major commitment of time and energy to run for any political office, no matter the size.

    As you can see, candidates are not always popular.

    Things will be said and allegations made.

    That type of advertising is not reserved only for the state and national races.

    Once again, thanks to all who ran for office.

  • College, career ready both important to students

     It is sometimes hard to communicate the importance of one thing without discounting the importance of another thing. 

    For that reason, I am going to state right up front what I want you to understand when you finish this column (call it a learning target): Increasing the percentage of Bullitt County citizens who have a bachelor’s degree is important AND pursuing a bachelor’s degree is not the only way to be successful, smart, or happy.

  • Cornell has had amazing 101 years of life

     I had the pleasure of sitting with Hilden Cornell recently. Some of you who have been around Bullitt County for a long time might remember her. She taught for almost 30 years at Pleasant Grove Elementary, Waterford Elementary, Saint Aloysius School and ended at Brooks Elementary.

    On May 9 she turned 101 years old.

    I was truly inspired by this woman’s example. Even after having lost the majority of her eyesight about 10 years now she still goes on living her life. And is so optimistic.

  • The time is now to get out and exercise rights

     The time has arrived.

    In less than one week, you will have an opportunity to exercise one of your most sacred rights -- the chance to go to the ballot box.

    Despite the mud...

    Despite the really awful stuff that is spread in the social media, including Topix and Facebook...

    Despite the hard feelings that are caused...

    We continue to say that America has the best system of democracy in the world.
