Today's Opinions

  • Deaths should push us to organ donations

     There once lived a girl who, despite every rock thrown her way, aimed to make the most of the life she lived. The girl had learned early just how precious life was.

    As a newborn, the girl was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a disease that causes more mucus in the lungs than normal. The disease caused the girl to spend her childhood in more hospitals than playgrounds.

  • Memorial Day special time

      While Memorial Day weekend was a wonderful time for gathering with family and friends for picnics, pool parties, and parades, I hope the true meaning of the event was not forgotten. 

    Memorial Day is an annual reminder of the brave men and women who have put everything on the line so we may live in freedom in the greatest nation in the world. 

    Born out of a wish to honor those who fell in the Civil War, Memorial Day serves as a nationally-recognized holiday to honor all those who have died in service of the United States. 

  • May observes work of Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency

     The month of May has been declared National Community Action Month by Governor Bevin.   Community Action has a history that dates back to the Johnson presidency.   A significant amount of services are provided by Community Action in Bullitt County.   Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency has been serving low income families and senior citizens in Bullitt County since the 1970’s and in the early 80’s evolved into a Community Action Agency.   

    So, what is Community Action? 

  • Time to put change in the Crusade boot

     It is hard to believe that another year has passed but you can tell by the firefighters standing on intersections holding their boots that it is indeed Crusade for Children time.

    That first weekend in June is the time in which Kentuckiana pours out its heart for the special needs children of this area.

    Every penny collected goes to helping the children. There is no administrative fees taken out.

    And, the money raised by Bullitt County fire departments will be returned to this community.

  • Graduation ceremonies are all special

     Like a wedding, there can be no such thing as a bad graduation.

    As my alma mater was having an all-class reunion last Saturday, the three Bullitt County high schools were wishing the best to nearly 1,000 graduates.

    There are always special moments. That is what graduations are for.

    Superintendent Keith Davis had the chance to present his son, William, with his diploma from Bullitt East.

    School board vice chairman Darrell Colemen did the same for his niece, Annie Argenbright of Bullitt Central.

  • It Happened in MAY

     We will be looking back 10, 30, 50, 70, and 90 years to see what was being printed in The Pioneer News in 2007, 1987, 1967, 1947, and 1927 in the month of May.

     

    2007 - 10 Years Ago.

  • Job Fair Thanks

     We would like to thank Bullitt County School superintendent Keith Davis, principal Chris VerDow of North Bullitt High, principal Chris Mason of Bullitt East High, principal Dr. Jim Beavers of Bullitt Central High, Angela Binkley of Bullitt Area Technology Center and Joe Pat Lee, assistant principal of Bullitt Central, for their support of our local industries job fair for high school seniors.

    The job fair was held on May 9 at the Bullitt Central College and Career Readiness Center.

  • How to win a war

     I addressed you Mister (Trump) because I believe every man should earn his title and most only become famous after death. I voted for you but God chose you to lead this great country back to sanity.
