  • Best Ever snow removal

     One thing is for certain Old Man Winter is here! The snow is Free and the frigid weather is Free! Free to us from Old Man Winter! Free for us to sled in. Free for us to make snowmen out of. Free for children to run and play in. Free for the “Foxes” and “Dogs” to romp in. We are all free to enjoy watching the snow falling as we sit in our cozy houses, sipping hot chocolate while we are unable to go to school and be with our friends.

  • Full story on road projects

     Phase 3 Construction is beginning! Apparently there is some misinformation about the roadwork that will be starting soon and how the funding was secured.

    Let me help clear this up for you. Serving as your State Representative I Linda Belcher wrote a Bullitt County Road Plan Proposal while I served you in Frankfort. I put the road requests in priority order hoping we would get “SOME” of them included in the 6 year Road Plan – where projects are funded. 

  • Jailer takes care of issue

     On Tuesday the 28th the weather was bad, cold as the Arctic Pole, I noticed when driving out Armstrong just South of Barbara sue Lane, debris all over the road in the ditch and stuck on the fence.

    I called Martha Knox, our jailer, about the trash. In less than an hour she sent inmates from the jail and cleaned it up. I was more than pleased with her prompt response. She is truly a good jailer and truly a public servant.

    Also I would like to commend the road department for good service in cleaning our roadways. They are great public servants.

  • Thanks to Santa's Helpers

     Pioneer Village Police Department Santa’s Helpers would like to personally thank all those business, and individuals, as well as Operation Santa from Hillview who supported our efforts to provide a wonderful Christmas to several families in our area.

  • Thanks from CASA

     As they have for the past five years, Susan Bradbury and First Federal Banks have worked hard to make Christmas 2013 a good memory for many Bullitt County children involved with the CASA program. These are children in the court system due to dependency, abuse and neglect and no fault of their own.

    With the help of the First Federal Angel tree, community members are able to pick an angel (CASA child) to buy Christmas for. Through these efforts over 70 children received a Christmas they would not have had otherwise.

    Thanks so much!

  • Legislative suggestions

      Since the General Assembly is in session and legislatures are entering and voting on bills, I would like to mention a couple of things that need fixing along with a couple that don’t need fixing. 

     We don’t need more bills to regulate women’s personal lives and interfering with the rights they already have. 

  • Shepherdsville Operation Santa

     Shepherdsville Operation Santa had another successful year and served over 150 families in Shepherdsville and Bullitt County. I would like to thank the people who helped make this year a success.

  • Lincoln Trail thanks MUW

     As we enter a new year and reflect upon the successes of 2013, I want to take this opportunity to thank and recognize the very generous supporters of Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System and United Way of Central Kentucky.

  • Thanks from AARP

     Mount Washington AARP just celebrated its greatest year of community service with donations to charities that help seniors, veterans, children, and those in need. Members from Fern Creek, Taylorsville, Shepherdsville, and Okolona met with us and multiplied our effect with thousands of volunteer hours spent collecting goods and cash. Businesses all over north Bullitt County Jefferson County provided gifts to help with fundraising.

  • Thanks PBI, community

     Through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, many people offer generous hearts to help those that are less fortunate. It’s a time to bless others and a time to reflect on just how blessed we all are.

    This year A New Hope Pregnancy Resource Center was blessed to receive donations collected by PBI Bank located at 340 S. Buckman St. in Shepherdsville and their patrons. We received a cash donation along with a diaper bag, baby clothing, diapers and several other infant necessities.
