  • Saying goodbye

     A final goodbye to a person who didn’t make the headlines.

    Sharon Hand was heavily involved in the Scouts and then got involved in the city of Hillview.

    First, she helped on the Hillview Emergency Response Team.

    Then, she was hired as the city’s code enforcement office.

    She wasn’t a person who wanted the spotlight. She only wanted to help her community.

    Sadly, she passed much too soon. Sharon was a true asset to the Hillview community.

    Also passing recently was Carroll Cogan.

  • Plenty of great fall attractions in the region

      Autumn is just days away! Fall in Kentucky is one of my favorite times of the year because we get to see God’s magnificent canvas take color. The leaves are sure to be pretty with all of the rain and cool weather we’ve gotten. I am looking forward to one awesome “firework show” by nature. Autumn is the perfect time to load the family up and road trip. October provides ample opportunities including fall break to road trip. To help you start making plans NOW, I offer a few of my favorite places around the Bluegrass.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - There are approximately 500 cases in the Bullitt County court system involving children abuse, neglect, and custody issues.

  • So talking is bad?

     So President Trump is getting criticized for talking with leadership in the Democratic Party?

    Maybe that is the epicenter of our problems in government.

    When we elect individuals aren’t we putting them into office to do what is best -- no matter which side of the aisle has the best idea?

    Instead of criticizing the President maybe folks on his side should pay attention.

  • Pension talks top discussion

     Over the course of the last few weeks, I have heard from many of you who have shared your thoughts and concerns with regard to our public pension systems. 

    I realize that the recommendations that were submitted last week to the General Assembly by the consulting group who reviewed our retirement systems were troubling and unsettling.

    I know that there are many of you who have dedicated many years of public service to our communities and our state.
