Today's Opinions

  • No rentals in subdivision

     I live in The Pointe subdivision and do not agree that homes should be rented or leased in our subdivision.

  • Commend medical, fire employees

     My husband, my sisters and I want to commend the personnel at Jewish South Medical Center, Bullitt County EMS, 911 Dispatch and Zoneton Fire Department for their professionalism over the last several months in responding to many 911 calls for my brother.

    The care and concern they gave my brother who ultimately passed away on Jan. 20, 2015, at Jewish South was comforting at such a traumatic time.

    They did everything possible to save him and support the family. 

  • Lemons not the answer

     It is extremely irresponsible for the Pioneer News to publish, almost uncritically, a claim that lemons prevent and possibly cure cancer. 

    I am talking about Jim Davidson’s column on page A-5 of the 02-11-2015 issue.

    Putting a disclaimer at the beginning and a short “the jury is still out” at the end of the column is NOT SUFFICIENT when you are printing a claim like that. 

  • Does Bullitt County have connection to George Washington?

     Nathaniel Pope was born in 1603 in Gloucester, England. 

    In 1630, he married Lucy Anne Fox in England.  They started a family before leaving England and traveling to America.  Before leaving England, Nathaniel and Lucy had four children.  They were Nathaniel, William, Margaret and Elizabeth Pope.

    Nathaniel and his family boarded the ship which departed from England and made the long journey to America. 

  • Flurry of bills considered early in short session

     FRANKFORT -- The 2015 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly is nearing the halfway point, and with few days left to take up legislation a flurry of key bills passed in the House this past week.

    Among the bills passed in the House include allowing a local option sales tax in Kentucky, combating the growing issue of heroin in our Commonwealth, and proposals to raise the minimum wage and implement a smoking ban across the state.

  • We must all realize that homeless woes exist

     Many years ago, a very intelligent and well-respected man told us that there was no drug problem in Bullitt County.

    Even 25 years ago, there was a drug problem in the county and in the region.

    Now, there is another problem that many would like to ignore -- homelessness.

    We’re not talking about someone who lost his or her home due to financial problems. We’re talking about people who are literally walking around with no clue where  they might spend t he next night.

  • Does snow make us crazy?

     Is it simply the falling of those pretty white flakes that make us a little crazy?

    Or is it just a coincidence?

    Probably just a coincidence that everyone hits the grocery stores on those days preceding a big snow storm.

    And probably just another coincidence that people get interested in buying shovels and salt on the days before a snowy storm.

    It’s probably just a coincidence that the viewship on The Weather Channel, once a proud member of the Landmark family, goes through the roof.

  • KSP offers winter driving tips

     FRANKFORT - Kentuckians are being dealt a wintery weather blast and KSP is asking motorists to be aware that weather conditions may change rapidly over the next few days.

    “Winter weather provides new challenges and responsibilities to the public and the Kentucky State Police,” says KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb.
