  • Fields set...now lets get started with primary campaign work

    The late flurry of candidates has passed and now the primary fields are set for this May.

    Candidates have several months to let the people know what they are going to do for them in the various offices.

    Our hope is that Bullitt Countians will continue to be bombarded with the facts...not a stretch of the truth.

    We hope motorists will still be able to navigate the roads with clear vision...not clouded by political signs sitting on the edge of the asphalt.

  • Four Bullitt wrestles qualify for state meet

    LOUISVILLE - The first-year Bullitt East wrestling program had a solid opening trip to a regional tournament on Saturday as a pair of wrestles qualified for this week’s State Championships in Frankfort.

    Bullitt East junior Justin Smith reached the semi-finals before losing in the 189-pound class. He eventually finished fourth to make the state meet.

  • Local swimmers improve at regionals

  • Johnson enjoys chance to help as constable

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - He’s not big on writing tickets.

        And he’s not overwhelmed by the need to do off-duty work.

        Butch Johnson is more concerned about serving the community.

        And the native Bullitt Countian is running for his second term as constable of the First District.

        “I have enjoyed talking with the people,” said the Democrat. “I am retired and I’m out in the district every day.”

    The win avenged a 35-28 loss to the Valkyries back on Jan. 27 in the Louisville Invitational Tournament. This time, Bullitt East surpassed 28 points with the first basket of the second half and never looked back.

  • Budget proposal made as state faces tough future

    Nearly two weeks ago I submitted a two-year budget proposal that included a bold new way to help fund, on a recurring basis, shared priorities like education and jobs, a way that eschewed the tax increases and destructive cuts being espoused by some legislative leaders.

    As I had predicted, my proposal was met with a chorus of angry responses in some quarters, and the posturing and rhetoric was as stiff as it was unhelpful in moving the discussion forward.

    In fact, some legislators declared my budget “dead” even before they examined it.
