Today's Opinions

  • Time arrives for recognition to distinguished educators in county

     When the central office was renamed in honor of retired superintendent Frank Hatfield, there was a who’s who of educational leaders who gathered.

    It was a great opportunity to honor a person who spent many years helping the field of education both in the county and throughout the state.

    With the recent passing of Marvin Stewart, another well-loved educator, it gave us reason to think.

  • Support education

     Thank you for the article you published on the Portable Planetarium at Maryville Elementary School. 

    Kaet Barron submitted the grant that was funded

    by the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education. This is just one fine example of the invocative ideas our teachers have that was funded by this Foundation.

  • Snowy week results in productive week at home

     We started the week of February 16 with the record-breaking snow levels in some parts of the state, and it ended with record low temperatures in others.

    In between, we endured more snow and saw the emergency workers and road crews of the state working hard to keep us safe. 

    With 100 Representatives covering all corners of the state, and the state police and transportation officials encouraging motorists to stay off the roads, House Leadership exercised caution and delayed legislative proceedings for the House of Representatives. 

  • Students have choice of reaching greatness

     One of my favorite leadership researchers is Jim Collins, who wrote a classic business book called Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t.

    In that book, you can find the following sentence: “Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.

    This can be applied to far more than making a business successful.

  • Thanks for agencies for their help in time of need

     A wild week to say the least.

    First, you get the snow and the cold.

    That is always a situation of chaos.

    Then, fire strikes the back portion of our business.

    The important part of the incident is that no one was hurt.

    The inventory and the building structure can be replaced. Lives can’t.

  • Meat-free in Lent is healthy, too

     This Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, when many Christians abstain from animal foods in remembrance of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the desert before launching his ministry.

    But meat-free Lent is much more than a symbol of religious devotion to  Christ. It helps reduce the risk of chronic disease, environmental degradation, and animal abuse.
