Today's Opinions

  • New system to be implemented in court system

      Bullitt County is scheduled to “go live” with the court system’s new Accounts Receivable Program on May 1, 2014.  There are currently 27 other Kentucky counties which have made the transition.  

    As it exists now, the accounting system is an antiquated system of hundreds of old-fashioned ledger cards. 

    Information regarding payments must be manually entered into the system where the court records are kept but there is no communication between that program and the bookkeeping program. 

  • An eventful year continues for school district

     In one sense, it seems like school just began yesterday, but in another way, it feels as if it has gone on a very long time.  Rather than waiting for the end of the year to recap, since so much has happened, this month I’ll devote to a little review.

  • Compromise appears dead in local sports

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Here we go again!

  • Vote for Robinson

     I have known Monica Meredith Robinson since she was born. To say I have been highly offended by the ads that attack her personal and professional character would be a severe understatement.

  • Beautify Brooks exit

     In regards to the article in The Pioneer News on March 31 about landscaping on exit 112 off I-65, I have a better idea. We need to get our Tourist and Convention Commission to bring their shovels to the interchange at the Brooks exit, 121.

  • Easter tales for Bullitt County

     The primary election may have cracked open a large hole in Bullitt County’s annual Easter egg distribution plans, and the yolk is on local officials and candidates.

    The Bullitt County branch of the Regional Authority of Bunnies Bringing Incredible Things (RABBIT) Coalition has announced its refusal to deliver and hide Easter eggs in the county.

    “This decision was based upon political strife, partially caused by primary elections held too close to this wondrous holiday,” said RABBIT spokesperson Cleo “Crusty” Honeybunny.

  • Best of Coyle: Easter

     This week's Best of Coyle, from 2012, is offered up as a way to say Happy Easter to everyone in Bullitt County from the staff of The Pioneer News.

  • Can’t get hoops season out of your head yet?

     Having troubles shaking off the losses by Kentucky and Louisville in the NCAA tournament?

    I understand.

    Maybe a trip this weekend to the Knob Creek Gun Range in western Bullitt County might take your might off things.

    With a little space to fill, think about the importance we place on the hoops game.

    Some people are so excited they will decide to upgrade their living room by burning a couch.

    For some, the NCAA is something worth betting on. It can be silly things between governors or it can be important things like money.
