Today's Opinions

  • Do the right thing... make an informed vote on Nov. 8

     With election day less than two weeks away, have you ever seen a time when people just seem to not care?

    Normally, during a presidential election, turnout might exceed 70 percent. In Bullitt County, where off-year elections may hover in the 20-20 percent range, 70 percent is pretty strong.

    When the current presidential campaign started -- what seems like years ago -- there was much enthusiasm.

    In Kentucky, for the first time a Republican caucus was held and the turnout was very good.

  • Congrats to Mills, Bullitt County for statewide honor

     It is always great to get a little recognition.

    Bullitt County needs as much good publicity as it can get these days.

    Last Wednesday, Bullitt County was in center stage in the state capitol in Frankfort.

    It was time for the annual Ashland Teacher of the Year recognition ceremony.

    For the first time ever, Bullitt County had the Middle School Teacher of the Year.

  • Carroll for Belcher

     Please allow me a few thoughtful moments as you prepare to cast your vote for someone to continue to strongly speak for you at your State Capitol in the Kentucky House of Representatives.

    We could not have had this success without your sponsorships, donations and participation to raise awareness for heart disease.

  • Curtis Hockenbury right choice

     The best news I have seen for Bullitt County in a long time is Curtis Hockenbury being elected mayor.

    I have known and worked with him for years and I know he will seek God’s guidance and wisdom and will be a public servant.

  • Remarks do not represent county

     The Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce is an organization dedicated not only to the creation of economic opportunity in our community but also to improving perceptions of our county.

  • Domestic violence awareness month remembered

     “We Are the Remembers,The Ones Left Behind,” a quote I often use to remind me that domestic violence is real. It happens to one out of three women. It can happen to the rich or poor, highly educated or illiterate, Christian or non-Christian, and to the most loving of families. 

    The family of Karen Byerly Morgan can testify to this.

    The signs of a toxic relationship often missed by loved ones:

    2. Check your messages.

  • Learning history never ending

     Former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill once urged former presidential speechwriter James C. Humes to “study history, study history! In history lies all the secrets of statecraft!”

    Studying the history of government affairs, like Churchill urged, can help you better decide who to vote for in the presidential and local elections this November.

    Studying the history of your family can help you discover potential medical problems or where certain traits began.
