  • Remembering 9/11: Annual Bullitt County observance will be at Hillview center on Sunday

     HILLVIEW -- Though it’s been almost 15 years since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centers, it’s still a day our nation will remember.

    “It’s important to me, that people don’t forget what happened and we remember the ones we lost,” said coordinator Scott Miller.

    Miller has been a special deputy for the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department for nine years and formerly served as a military police officer in the Army.

    “9/11 is our generation’s Pearl Harbor,” he said.

  • Important to not forget the reason we celebrate 9/11

     It happened on Sept. 11, 2001. It was a day in which terrorist attacks changed this country forever.

    While the years have passed, the memories have not. And never should they fade from our memories.

    Each year, Bullitt Countians remember this event in a variety of ways. This year will be no different.

    North Bullitt High JROTC will again host a special remembrance on Friday. On Thursday, the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce will honor all first responders.

  • Finance officer: Does it make good sense?

     The recent appointment - without any peep of opposition - of Keith Griffee as the county’s first finance officer is an interesting one.

    As the elections grow closer, the opinion of whether Bullitt County needs a financial officer is varied - for various reasons.

    And it will surely be part of the political fodder we will hear.

    The neat thing is - the creation of the position can be debated on either side. The person selected cannot.
