Today's Opinions

  • Why don’t many people believe in marriage?

     It’s disturbing to me as a young woman, that no one seems to believe in getting married anymore. People just seem to have kids left and right with numerous partners at their own discretion. When did that become the norm?

    I look forward to the security that comes with having a husband and a house for my children one day. It gives a family stability.

    For a population that is so used to wanting everything right away,  it makes sense they just leave a relationship when it gets hard. They’re not married so they don’t feel an obligation.

  • Some want to know if CON for hospital beds still has a pulse

     Back about 10 years ago, it was an exciting time.

    Through a lot of work in Frankfort, it was announced that Jewish Hospital would build an emergency room, have diagnostic testing facilities and bring out specialists to occupy a wing of medical offices.

    There was also the announcement of someday having a hospital with 60 beds approved through a Certificate of Need. The approval process for the beds came after the initial plans were announced and the facilities started.

  • BBB Tips: Purchasing PGA Tickets

      As the PGA Championship approaches, many consumers will be starting to look for last minute tickets. BBB warns consumers of scammers taking advantage of anyone looking for a great last minute deal.

  • Thanks to Thompson, crew

     I wanted to thank Tony Thompson and his workers for the work they did on the Bullitt Blast this year.

    The Bullitt County Woman’s Club and Linda Belcher appreciated the opportunity to sponsor the watermelon eating contest. It was a fun-filled event with five winners and 43 participants.

    Thank you to The Pioneer News for taking pictures.

  • Helping a motorist

      I broke down on my way to Florida for my oldest daughter’s wedding.

    I ended up at Ken Towery in Shepherdsville. Store manager Brent Beyer and tech Craig Wolfe went above and beyond to get me back on the road. Craig drove to the hardware store himself to get the part. Brent kept the store open an hour and a half past closing to get me to my wedding.

    Their dedication and good nature helps restore my faith in humanity. I hope you can run something in your paper for the good deeds that came from my travel.

  • 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.
