     To each and every one that donated to the benefit for St. Jude Children Hospital at ValuMarket in Mount Washington, from the bottom of my heart. I will never forget your kindness.

  • Don't hurt Medicare

     Under the new tax plan about to become law, the resulting deficit will trigger Medicare cuts under existing pay-as-you-go rules. 

    The cuts would reduce payments to doctors and other medical service providers causing some to choose dropping Medicare patients. AARP has presented a letter to Congressional leaders urging them to prevent this catastrophe.

    Nearly 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 each day over the next 15 years and those of us long past that age will tell you how vital Medicare has been to us.

  • Impact of insurance

     Kidney disease impacts thousands of Kentuckians. As a social worker, I take on the role as an advocate for my patient’s. They rely on me to ensure they receive the care they need and are treated fairly. Healthcare continues to be a hot topic in the media, but there is one little known issue that deeply threatens my patients’ access to care.

  • Support the mayor

     WOW, I could not believe my eyes, when I walked out to my paper box and got my wonderful Pioneer News paper and saw one of the headlines, that stated, “BROWN CALLS FOR MAYOR TO RESIGN!” 

    After reading the article, I could not understand, why former council member Brown would even consider that. Let me tell you why, I could not believe that. It was both Mr. Brown & Mr. Hatfield who pushed all of our GREAT CITIZENS to call the council and appoint Mr. Hockenbury to fill the remaining term of Mayor Scott Ellis. 

  • Homeless situation

     Increasing numbers of homeless people are living in our community  -- Bullitt County, Kentucky. Families are living in substandard shelter, and in some case they are living outdoors. Parents and children are being split up in order to acquire safe shelter. Children are hanging out at local restaurants and the library just to have a warm, dry place to spend their afterschool hours, if they are even in school. This is a problem in need of a good solution. 

  • Proud of my ancestry

     I had the privilege to reach manhood in the early Sixties, when our society was teaching itself how to integrate. That was the word we used back then and it seemed natural and correct, although very difficult to achieve. 

    That term, along with many others has come and gone, to be replaced by other words that seemed to be more acceptable for some unknown reason. 

    They all mean the same thing though, that of coming together and that is where we as a society have failed.

  • Please recognize the signs of abuse
  • Thanks from the VFW

     Thanks to all who attended our POW/MIA program at VFW Post 5710 Bullitt County Memorial.

    Post members led by our commander, James Anderson, and his officers and auxiliary members led by President Kathleen Coffey and her officers presented the program.

    Special guests were Judge Executive Melanie Roberts with her mother; Sixth District Auxiliary president Shaunia Eisenback and veteran Sherry Elmore Whitehouse, who explained the POW/MIA table and what each item symbolized.

    We must never forget those who have not returned home yet.

  • Intersection still in works

     Several people have asked me about the timeline of the turning lane on Highway 44 and Lloyds Lane. I am pleased to pass on the following information -- “The third and final intersection widening (turning lane with a light) on Highway 44 will soon be starting. The expected completion date will be summer of ‘18.”
