Today's Opinions

  • Support the Crusade

     Each year during the first weekend of June, Kentuckiana has an opportunity to support what may be the best community-based fund-raiser in the world.

    The WHAS Crusade for Children is that special time that we can come together to support those with special needs.

    It would be a surprise if every person does not have someone who has had a child receive assistance from Kosair Children’s Hospital, a major benefactor of the Crusade efforts.

  • Congrats to all the graduates

      It is that time each year that we congratulate another group of young adults who will be taking their next step in life.

    Roughly 900 students will walk the line this weekend as graduation ceremonies are held at Broadbent Arena.

    Never have our young adults been better prepared to take that next step.

  • Dear 2016 graduates

     Just a few words of encouragement as you embark upon the next chapter of you.  This is such an exciting time in your life! 

    Some of you will leave home for college, some will move out on your own. And some will be smart and stay home a little longer! 

    No matter what you do on your journey to become you, don’t forget to remember your childhood innocence and sense of wonder!

  • Shepherdsville advises Zika virus caution

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - With summer arriving, concerns have raised over the spread of the Zika virus throughout the country.

  • Congratulations to our seniors, best wishes for a bright future

    Dear BCPS Seniors,

    It is now a very short time until graduation day on June 4, and I want to use this space to write to you a little advice. 

    I’m sure you’ve been hearing a lot of it lately and I guarantee you will be hearing a lot more.

    When I spoke to you all during the spring of your 8th grade year, I talked about personal responsibility, making your own choices, about how your family history or financial circumstances need not determine your success. 

  • Team effort paves road to state approval

     As Bullitt County receives over $123 million in road project funding in the next six years, including the $25 million in federal revenue for the new I-65 interchange between Highway 480 and Highway 245, it is time to thank all of those who were involved in the long, hard, and complicated process of obtaining that funding.

    I want to thank my House counterparts, Representatives Russell Webber, James Tipton, and Linda Belcher for their hard work, but there are others who should be equally praised for their dedication.

  • Smoking becomes moving violation if kids in vehicle

     Maybe it is more symbolic than anything.

    The Shepherdsville City Council recently voted to have an ordinance which prohibits smoking inside a vehicle where there are infants around.

    In reality, the “infant” definition means anyone under the age of 18.

    There were comments pro and con.

    It was mainly the health vs. civil liberties conversation.

    Some did not like the idea of having the right to fine someone for smoking with children in the vehicle.

  • Redistricting will not just go away

     When is a public hearing not a public hearing?

    When the decision was made prior to listening to the public.

    However, it all works out pretty well when the decision reached is what the public wanted to begin with.

    OK, do I know that the Bullitt County Public School Board was against the proposal to redistrict due to overcrowding issues?

    Do I have a pretty good feeling that the consensus prior to the public hearing was to not take any action?

    Yes.
