  • If we had known earlier

     So flood maps were turned over in 2011 and updated against in October of 2013 to Bullitt County/City officials, showing the new FEMA flood maps.

    Those same individuals expect us to vote them into office again. Please know who you are voting for when you go to the polls. 

    We just bought a house in July 2013. If we had been aware of these flood maps, we would not have bought our current house.

  • Vote for Higgins

     I wish to let the citizens of the north end know that Mike Higgins has been an active volunteer in this community and has kept abreast of the needs and possibilities of our county.

    He would not have stood idly by and watched the opportunity of gaining 1,500 jobs go some place else.

    That is why I support Mike Higgins for magistrate

  • Vote for Nemes

     Before you cast your vote for District 49 House of Representative, I wanted you to know a little of the Mike Nemes I know.

    My family has known Mike Nemes and his family for around 18 years, since our boys played recreational baseball together. That was really how we came to know Mike. He became our oldest son’s baseball coach for seven of those years.

    Through all of the travels, tournaments, practices, seasons, we got to know Mike Nemes and his family. What Iearned about Mike during that time was that he was a man who truly cared about people.

  • Support Linda Belcher

     I have known Linda Belcher for over 38 years. She and her late husband, Larry, were dedicated educators since 1970.

    She taught school, was an assistant principal and principal, and director of transportation in Bullitt County.

    Her service has always been in Bullitt County.

    Linda is a member of Little Flock Baptist Church and serves on the board for the Christian academy.

  • Chili supper thanks

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

  • Tax not for kids

     I have received my property taxes for the year and the school tax part that I have to pay is ridiculous.

    The biggest portion is school tax. Even superintendent Keith Davis admits that the school system could function without the extra tax being applied. Yes, we are hurting out here with inflation, gas prices, utilities increasing and everyone is fighting to keep what they make in their pockets.

  • No more tax hikes

     In reference to your recent commentary concerning the approved school tax rate, I would like to make the following comments:

    The School Board Members are smart not to offer a vote on any tax increases. They know that it would not receive an acceptable voter response.

    Your commentary stated that the district would have an additional $1.3 million dollars to spend, of which $1.2 million would go to the Teacher Retirement System and also give a 2 percent salary increase for next year. 

  • Thank to Class of 1964

     I am writing to thank the 1964 Shepherdsville High School graduating class for their donations to the moving and restoring of the Bowman Valley School project.

    Please continue to support as we prepare to move the school by year’s end.

    Send tax deductible donations to Bowman Valley School Project, P.O. Box 1714, Shepherdsville, Ky., 40165.

  • Vote for Faith Portman

     Faith Portman has served the citizens well as a city council member, and has been a strong voice for all the citizens in Shepherdsville.

    She not only has great qualifications to be our next mayor and has a vision of what this city needs to make Shepherdsville a thriving city.

    She will have a strong fiscal plan to cut waste and improve conditions where spending has been running rapid. She will put into place the necessary changes that effects our every day lives.

  • Leaders need integrity

     I greatly appreciated the information presented by city employee Chuck Keith in the Sept. 10 issue of The Pioneer News.

    I, for one, am exhausted by the “good ole’ boy system” that seems to run so rampant in this county both politically and legally. Every citizen should be held accountable equally, fairly and appropriately regardless of who they know, how much they have or how much money they have.
