Today's Opinions

  • What happens when called for jury duty

      Jury duty is perhaps one of the areas that creates the most questions for our office. 

    The first question is usually, “why me?”  Jurors are selected for service by the The Kentucky Court of Justice Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).

    The Kentucky Court of Justice strives to ensure that jury pools are a true representation of Kentucky’s population. The AOC compiles a master list of prospective jurors for the entire state on a per county basis.

  • Seniors will get to take trip even if ‘educational’ value questioned

     When is a policy not a policy? When you can find a good reason to bend the rules.

    It was almost a funny situation.

    On Sept. 9, the Bullitt County Public School System held its monthly work session.

    At these sessions, the members have a little extra time in a more informal setting to discuss things such as field trip policies.

    During this particular session, although no formal request had been received, board members were advised that a senior trip for Bullitt East might be on the horizon.

  • Thanks to Arts Council

     The Woman’s Club would like to thank the Bullitt County Art Council for their participation in the Fall Conference.

    Their wonderful displays on the tables and throughout the room were beautiful.  A special thanks to Donna burke and Judy Nevitt for their singing performance, as well as Jacob Head with the Compass Quarter, for his solos on the Violin. Their performances were inspiring up lifting.

  • Thanks for watching our tax dollars

     I would like to take a moment to thank our county magistrates for their effort to make sure that the county’s money is being spent properly and that our county departments are run as they should be. I would like to say a special thank you to Magistrate John Bradshaw for asking the hard questions even though it’s not the popular thing to do.

  • Young people do good work

     I wanted to write this letter to acknowledge how good some of our young people are. I have been working with Future Farmers of America (FFA) program at Bullitt Central High School as a volunteer.

  • It’s Cyber Security Awareness Month

     It’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month! This year’s theme for NCSAM is “Our Shared Responsibility,” which puts emphasis on the role everyone has to play in making the Internet a safer place to work and play.

  • Death of newspapers could be bad rumor

     I know of newspapers that kept their communities informed about clean water and shelter during terrible storms and disasters.

    I know of newspapers that exposed crooks, lost a lot of advertising from the crooks’ buddies and still put out a paper every week.

    I know of a newspaper that had an ironic sense of humor that even offended a few readers and stood its ground with a “come on people, have a brain” retort.

    I know of publishers who took pay cuts during the recession rather than cut staff.

  • Talk about our local journalism different for crew from Pakistan

     Recently, I had the opportunity to talk with a group of journalists from Pakistan.

    In the United States on a tour of various media, the group stopped in Shepherdsville to find out how a community newspaper covered the news.

    They came from the world of big and small papers, television stations and wire services.

    With the assistance of interpretors, they got to ask the questions. I got to give a few answers.
