Today's Opinions

  • Get ready for forums for candidates

     Candidates for the major county offices should be prepared -- there will be at least a couple of forums this spring.

    We don’t want to surprise anyone. From all the discourse we’ve seen on social media, the forum for the special election came as a surprise and was rigged in favor of the Democratic candidate.

    As one of the sponsors, who is normally just the publicity arm for the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce, we’ve heard enough.

  • Paper fails the county

     The Pioneer News (PN) is failing the people of Bullitt County. The PN has provided no investigative journalism to its readers nor does it hold any governments, county leaders or candidates accountable. 

    This has been a running joke for too long.  Given the political climate, budget outlooks, needed economic development and upcoming elections, I’m done laughing. 

    We need an active newspaper and as one of the largest and fastest growing counties, we deserve one.

  • Flooding Creates Health, Safety Concerns

     FRANKFORT - The Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), reminds Kentuckians to follow safety guidelines in the wake of severe flooding and water run-off throughout the state.

  • Games too pricey

     I would like to address the Bullitt County athletic directors, or the Board of Education, as to who sets the prices for high school basketball games.

    Every game that I have attended this year, the cost for admission has been $6 and that is for adults and students. College students event get a discount to attend games for their schools.

    There are weeks when there are two or three games at $6 admission that can get pricey, especially for teens who work hard for their money.

    These games can also be pricey for families who have multiple children.

  • John Jacob Peacock went to Kentucky

     John Jacob Peacock was born in 1769 in New Jersey.  John Jacob is of Scottish Descent.

  • Get your boots on... election time soon to kick into gear

     What is the worst time that rolls around every two years?

    Election time.

    For those who love the political game, it is great.

    However, for those who hate to read and hear about the campaigns and those running for office, it can be awful.

    And, it is this negative tone that drives many people away from the political system.

    While this is being written well before the polls closed for the special election in the 49th District, we would guess that turnout would be 10 percent or less.

  • Keep your trash

     My name is Elizabeth Dennis Owen. I live on Flatlick Road. You don’t know me but there are times when you are driving by, you toss your garbage and it lands in my front yard.

    Sometimes you are walking when you have garbage you want to get rid of. 

    I don’t throw my garbage in your front yard but if you would like for me to return the favor, just send me your address. I will see what I can do to accommodate you.

  • Vote for Belcher

     I have known Linda Belcher for over 40 years. She and late  husband (Larry Belcher) were dedicated educators since 1970. She taught school, was an assistant principal and a principal, and was director of transportation in Bullitt County.

    She continued in working in education as an instructor at U of L.
