  • Thanks to EMS, Simon

     Recently I had need of Bullitt County EMS over the weekend. I just wanted to commend them for excellent sservice they provided and thank the Mount Washington Fire Department for their prompt response.

    Also I would like to thank the Simon Family for everything they have done for our county over the years. It would be impossible to list all of the contributions they have made to build a better Bullitt County.

  • Scottish Rite Club thanks

     On Tuesday, May 10, at the Paroquet Spring Conference Centre, the Bullitt County Scottish Rite Club held its 29th annual Student Recognition Program. 

    They recognized 66 academically challenged students from the Bullitt County Middle and High Schools with a plaque, a proclamation from the Bullitt County Judge Election, and a $25 gift card.

    Three graduating seniors received a $3,000 scholarship.

    This could not have been possible without the personal and business support and sponsors of our community.

  • Dear 2016 graduates

     Just a few words of encouragement as you embark upon the next chapter of you.  This is such an exciting time in your life! 

    Some of you will leave home for college, some will move out on your own. And some will be smart and stay home a little longer! 

    No matter what you do on your journey to become you, don’t forget to remember your childhood innocence and sense of wonder!

  • Thanks from Roby

     We want to give a special thanks to all the businesses that donated to the Roby Elementary Spring Auction:

  • Thank you, Mr. Schultz

     Fifteen years ago, educator Greg Schultz interviewed for the principalship at North Bullitt High School.

    The search committee, which had passed on the first group of candidates, some fairly impressive, were impressed from the start by Mr. Schultz.

    The committee made the decision to hire him because of the energy he brought to the interview.

    He has contributed to the shaping of Bullitt County minds ever since.

  • Good things in Hillview

     This is in response to an article in The Pioneer News on April 27, 2016, regarding the Hillview lawsuit.

    I have lived in Hillview for over 20 years. I don’t agree with what has happened but I totally disagree with the comments that were presented by the resident in the council meeting.

    Hillview Police Department has done more in recent years than they have in the past and our services are even better.

  • Thanks to contributors

     The Bowman Valley committee would like to thank Bullitt County Tourism for its generous donation of $500 to the Bowman Valley School Restoration Program.

    We would also like to thank the DAR (Daughters of American Revolution) for its very generous donation of $4,000 to be used to place a monument similar to the one in front of the Woodsdale School, next to Bowman Valley School.

    Thank you so much to these great organizations for their generosity and support to our project.

  • Tribute to Donna Rodgers

     This is a tribute to a friend, Donna Lynn Whittaker Rodgers.

    Donna passed away on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016. This is not about her death but about her life.

    Donna was truly an asset to our community of Lebanon Junction. She was a person of many talents. She gave back to our community, her church, her business and her family.

    She was a committed business woman in her own right. I can still hear her laughter as I entered her hair salon that was set up in the back of her home. She served many of our ladies here in LJ.

  • Change Congress

     Ranking out current GOP candidates after hours and hours of debates, interviews. Seeming them on all channels. CNN, Fox and MSNBC.

    Donald Trump -- vague, general, most likely could and would work with both sides. Can showmanship get the job done?

    Ted Cruz -- very scary; not truthful; bully; panders to religious right and wouldn’t work and doesn’t work with people.

    Mario Rubio -- pulls too much from memorized responses; claims as first-term senator to have foreign policy experience because he attended meetings, briefings. WOW.

  • Need new leadership

     Well, here we go again.

    Our town is now under siege by the James Gang and Calamity Taft.

    But not to worry. The great citizens of this city know what’s going on.

    After next election, some of the members of the current administration will have to find a new hobby.
