Today's Opinions

  • Background checks

     A few months ago, some conservative senators felt the need to kill a popular, bipartisan proposal on firearm background checks bill (H.R. 1565), and relied primarily on a single talking point: the proposal might lead to a firearm database.

    The very idea of some kind of national gun registry was so offensive to them, that the legislation had to die at the hands of a Republican filibuster. It didn’t matter that the bipartisan bill had no such database. It didn’t matter that the bipartisan bill explicitly made the creation of such a registry a felony.

  • Crime reports makes things easier to track

     FRANKFORT – Every year since the late 1980s, the Kentucky State Police has published a highly detailed break-down of the previous year’s crimes, giving us a much closer look at – and appreciation of – the work done every day by our law enforcement officers.  

  • Tax rate could be easier sell if belts were tightened at same time

     The Bullitt County Public School Board took the proper route recently when it approved a 4 percent tax hike by a 3-2 margin.

  • Let the flood gates open as election season upon us

      There is probably no time that politics are not part of the governmental scene.

  • Why should education matter to our community?

     By the time you read this, school will have been back in session for several days.

  • Postmaster’s legacy lasts long after he has left Earth

     Torris Little loved life.

  • Happy ending

     I?d like to share with your readers a “news” story that actually has a happy ending. My hope is that others will follow suit if they’re in the same situation. Our beloved “Bear,” a chow-mix dog, was last seen in the neighborhood on a recent Wednesday night. So when she didn?t show up for a day or two, we all started to get really nervous. I can honestly say I felt like my ?kid? was lost, wandering the road, or worse.

  • Thanks to community

     This is an open letter of thanks to the community of Shepherdsville. Over the last five weeks you supported your Shepherdsville Titans football and Cheer teams by giving donations at one of our many roadblocks or by purchasing lots of Krispy Kreme and candy bars. Each of the children you?ve helped will leave the fields a better person this year through the sports of Football and Cheer with your generosity. Without you we are only the Titans but with you we are the Shepherdsville Titans.
