• Keep two councilmembers

     I read the uneducated ranting of a “private citizen” in Your Views on Sept. 30.

    Let me educate you on the positive effects of Gloria Taft and Dana James on the Shepherdsville City Council to the city and to the citizens. It is a matter of public record that since they took office the city went from the brink of bankruptcy from the previous administration to a city with a balanced budget and financial reserves.

  • Beshear for attorney general

     When you go to vote on November 3, please consider voting for Andy Beshear.

    He is honest, hard working and will work to protect the children and the seniors of Kentucky.

    He needs your vote.

  • More patrol in The Pointe

     The city police of Shepherdsville need more TP and radar around The Pointe subdivision.

    Vehicles, especially dump trucks, come off the hill at the Gap in the Knob going way too fast.

    There has already been a bad wreck coming out of The Pointe. It is just a matter of time before someone is killed there.

    Also, why is the speed limit on the new Highway 61 still set at 35 miles per hour?

  • Charter school concerns

     One of the major issues that pivots on the upcoming governor’s election is that of charter schools. We should think carefully before electing politicians who would support charter schools. Many charter schools are managed by corporations, whose focus is to maximize profits for their shareholders.

  • Thanks to Walt Sholar

     The Bullitt County Ministerial Association would like to thank Walt Sholar.

    Due to increasing violence directed toward churches, Walt recently taught a class on church security.

    He was assisted by Jim Higginbotham, a retired law enforcement officer and weapons trainer.

    Walt developed the curriculum, coordinated the classroom training and supervised training on the shooting range.

  • Nelson for state treasurer

     Rick Nelson is running for state treasurer. I have had the pleasure of working with him for the last six years as a fellow legislator. He is a retired educator who has spent his life serving the people of Kentucky.

    He works hard and is a good, honest man.

    I am asking that you consider voting for Rick Nelson for state treasurer when you go vote in November.

  • Vote Conway, Overly

     Good, quality programs have a positive impact on young learners, not only cognitively but long-term socially, emotionally and behaviorally.

    Please vote for the candidates who care about the children of Kentucky and support early childhood education -- Jack Conway and Sannie Overly.

  • Pavilion moving forward

     The Mount Washington City Council and its mayor have been discussing, for some time, the need for a community center; a pavilion-type building, that would provide shelter for community events, a civic club fish fry, a place that our farmers market can call home and even a music festival on occasion.

    We already have a small city park, with the city fountain on that property, in the center of town. We needed a place to locate the new city pavilion, but certainly had no place available without spending a lot of city funds for the property.

  • Thanks from HOPE

     HOPE would like to take this opportunity to thank the following for their help and support:

  • Thanks for support

     On behalf of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, we would like to say “thank you” to all who supported the DARE chili supper.

    You may have made a donation to the raffle or given a monetary donation or just came and ate.

    Your generosity was greatly appreciated.

    We would also like to thank First Baptist Church of Shepherdsville for the use of their fellowship hall; the Bullitt County Woman’s Club; and employees of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office.
