Today's Opinions

  • Thanks for work at park

     On behalf of myself and my family we would like to say thank you to the city of Shepherdsville’s Mayor Scott Ellis and a special thank you to council woman Faith Portman for approval to build the gazebo on 1st Street Park. We also would like to thank Claude Middleton with city works, Jonathan at Quality Stone and Ready Mix for the concrete, Don at DG Industries for all the steel parts needed and Eddie at Grandmas RV Park for the shrubs around the gazebo.

  • Schools making progress

     After reading a letter in the Forum in the Courier-Journal that stated “Bullitt County school system has not changed in the last 60 years,” I had to respond!

    I graduated from Bullitt County Schools in 1966. I received a BS from Eastern Kentucky University, a Masters in Education from U of L, and a Rank 1 in Administration and Supervision from Western Kentucky University. I spent 35 years as a teacher, principal and the Director of Transportation for Bullitt County so I am very familiar with the system.

  • Spring Festival thanks

     The Spring Festival Committee would like to thank the community for your support again this year. There are too many individuals, City Police and Fire Departments and School and companies to list that make this event possible.

  • BBB Warns: Don’t Get Taken by Ticket Sales

     With concerts, games, and festivals in full swing this summer, many fans are eager to purchase tickets to their favorite events. However, before committing to a purchase, BBB warns to beware of ticket scams!

    Many tend to seek out tickets on classified sites. Unfortunately, this is where many scam artists lurk. For instance, fake tickets are often posted on Craigslist, with “too-good-to-be-true” prices. The seller asks the buyer to pay through wire services, like Western Union then the buyer never receives the tickets.

  • Elder abuse is problem we must eliminate

     An estimated three to five million older adults in America were victims of abuse in 2011.

  • County very prepared to hike dropout age

     The Bullitt County Public School System is in excellent shape to raise the dropout age from 16 to 18.

  • Best of Coyle: 06/19/13

  • Thanks to Boy Scout troop

     On behalf of myself Jimmy Waters and the community of Lebanon Junction I would like to recognize and thank the Boy Scout Troop 0685 for the group effort put forward on cleaning up and restoring a cemetery located at the corner of 139 Hillcrest Avenue, Lebanon Junction Family Cemetery of Stark’s and Thompson families.

    The Boy Scouts and family together cleaned both inside and outside of cemetery and reset headstones, cut trees, pained iron fence and built new benches on site for a complete makeover and a much needed restoration of the cemetery.
