  • Homeless shelter

     There is no doubt about it - Bullitt County has a Homeless Population. 

    HOUSING FIRST COALITION has been working very hard over the past few months to devise a plan to get in place a Permanent Shelter for Bullitt County Homeless. 

    At the Shelter, resources can be made available to individuals to get them back on their feet. 

  • Retirees speak up
  • Job Fair Thanks

     We would like to thank Bullitt County School superintendent Keith Davis, principal Chris VerDow of North Bullitt High, principal Chris Mason of Bullitt East High, principal Dr. Jim Beavers of Bullitt Central High, Angela Binkley of Bullitt Area Technology Center and Joe Pat Lee, assistant principal of Bullitt Central, for their support of our local industries job fair for high school seniors.

    The job fair was held on May 9 at the Bullitt Central College and Career Readiness Center.

  • Roby says thank you
  • Roadside trash

     I always love it when the trash collectors come every April to pick up YOUR trash on I-65.

    The roadway looks so  nice.. for about two days.

    Why not save your trash for a trash receptacle so we never  see it? That way our roadways would always look great.

  • New theme, same mission

     We have changed our theme for our Derby activity.

    Over the last five years, the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education has sponsored a Derby Gala to raise money for our classrooms.

    In the first year, the foundation raised $3,028; last year, the group raised $17,856.

  • Want to pay more taxes?

     What do you think of tax increases? Not inflationary increases but the kind of increase that is applied to fund pet projects, or worse, gross malpractice by leaders.

    Not good? OK, we agree.

    Government should be kept in check. That concept has no party. If you look real hard at what Frankfort is doing on the tax front, you will learn that in 2014 your government gave cities, counties, and most other taxing entities, a blank check. They took the ceiling off the insurance tax. The vote was almost unanimous.

  • Need some advice?

     I read with interest today about the Mayor and councils decision concerning the Shepherdsville Community Center. It saddens me that there cannot be any  better decisions made for the benefit of our community. 

    Perhaps at some point  everyone forgot that it is a “community” center and not just a building.  Sweat, hard work and private monies went into creating a place for everyone to utilize. 

  • Sanitation rates are OK

     On the subjects of the Sanitation District rate increase: If you were like me -- paying for this service in both Bullitt County and Jefferson -- you would gladly accept this modest bill and thank the volunteers that ride herd on Bullitt County’s struggling agency that takes your waste.

    My Jefferson County bill is twice that one in Bullitt County. 

    Either this county can stop issuing building permits, which includes those that bring jobs, or we can fund this agency sufficient personnel.

  • Homelessness

     Say you care about the homelessness, really?….Really? “Room In The Inn” B.C. has come to the aid of 215 family units in the last 23 months and around Bullitt County!

    Why wait months or years to make a difference? Drivers, laundry help, mentors and meals are needed today! C’mon Christian, Matthew 25:34-40 is calling your name. 502-714-3742, heartofmycity@gmail.com. 

    Be apart of the miracles!
