Today's Opinions

  • Big dose of leadership best gift for county crew

      It is that time each year where we send a few gifts to individuals and agencies in Bullitt County.

    In the past, Santa Barr has tried to mix a little humor into his gifts. But, we’ll leave the humor to much more skilled writers than myself.

    Besides, there are serious times and that calls for serious discussions.

    First, the members of Bullitt Fiscal Court need to wish for, and receive, a big dose of leadership.

  • Small donation goes long way for local charities

     Tis the season to be jolly, even if you stress yourself to the limits of humanity to do so.

    At The Pioneer News our editorial staff remains busy, covering many Christmas events throughout Bullitt County. We enjoy Christmas like everyone else, with shopping and gifting and decorating and cookies and carols and TV specials.

  • Louisville Water offers tips to prepare for bitter cold weather

     With the arrival of cold weather, Louisville Water encourages customers to take some time and prepare their home for winter.

  • Saying Goodbye

     Benny Stillwell served a number of years as police chief for the city of Shepherdsville.

    During most of my tenure, Benny spent in the city’s public works department.

    A good person who always seemed to help out all the city’s departments no matter the need.

    He will be missed.

    When I saw the docket for the Bullitt County Board of Adjustments meeting and there was an application for a variance for a high-rise sign, I always thought of Morris Longacre.

    The passing of Morris is a bit more personal.

  • Time for prayer

     First of all I was a sinner, saved by the grace of God just as you were.

    Second, I am a disabled veteran of World War II and proud of it. I have been in church as long as I can remember. I can see a drastic change in our society and the church today.

    At one time, our nation wasknown as a Christian nation. Not today.

    And the church today is filled with so much rock throwing back and forth and gossip. This is sin within itself and yet there are some who act so holy holy and they are the ones who are throwing the rocks and gossip.

  • Brooks PTA

     The Brooks PTA would like to thank the following companies for their donation to our Fall Festival. Because of their generosity we had a very successful event.

  • Fellowship of Concern

     As current president of The Fellowship of Concern, “Thank You” for your coverage of Community Thanksgiving Service held at First Baptist Church in Shepherdsville the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving.

    After reading the article, I do want to clarify, a bit, about the Fellowship. Mentioned, were several churches represented in the leadership of the Worship Service. I want to give recognition and thanks to all the churches and the Community at large that support the Fellowship of Concern.
