  • Safe Fourth of July

     The 4th of July is fast approaching and long with it comes fireworks. Although they are an integral part of this wonderful celebration and everyone enjoys a good show, please keep in mind that a lot of people have jobs they have to get up early for, children that need rest and animals that re terrified by the sounds. Not everyone enjoys hearing or seeing them for days on end until the wee hours of the morning. Please keep this in mind and be respectful of your neighbors and others in your community. 

    Have a Happy & Safe 4th of July!

  • Exercise your rights

     Election time! Exercise your right to vote! Vote for the candidate of your choice How many of us did not get to vote for the candidate of our choice in the Primary held on May 20? We were limited in our choice of candidates due to how we were registered to vote. Some were not allowed to vote at all because there were no independent candidates in the running. Is there anyone out there who thinks this is unfair?

  • Thanks from Scottish Rite

     For the past several years the Bullitt County Scottish-Rite Club has sponsored a Motor Rally/Fun Run. Motorcycles, Sand Bugs and Custom Cars of all kind, show up from through-out the state to have a fun day and contributed to a very worthy cause, “Challenged Needs Students of Bullitt County Schools.”

  • Thanks to the people

     I want to THANK all the people of Shepherdsville that let me put a sign in your yard, those that made a contribution to my campaign and those that voted for me as Mayor of Shepherdsville. Your support means a lot to me.

    I hope you continue to support me in November in the general election! I want to work for you the people that pay to keep our city moving forward.

    Again, thank you. “Gotta Have Faith”

  • Getting the facts straight

     In a recent ad in The Pioneer News, paid for by Jimmy Smothers, I was accused of receiving $150,000 from the City of Shepherdsville in return for a $500 piece of property.

    A few months ago, The Pioneer News also ran an article, quoting city council member Dana James and city attorney Joe Wantland, stating I had received $150,000 for a $500 easement. All of these claims are untrue. I challenge anyone to produce a canceled check proving otherwise.

  • Thanks from Roby

     We would like to thank the following for their support to the Roby Elementary PTA Spring Auction:

  • Thanks from Belcher

      THANK YOU to all of the people of Bullitt County who let me put a sign in your yard, who helped me pas out literature, and who voted for me a your State Representative District 49. Your support means so much to me!

  • Vote for Lee

     I would like to say a few words in favor of Daryl Lee for member of Shepherdsville City Council.

  • Vote for Greenwell

         Four years ago our community elected a new Sheriff. With the new administration, came a valuable community youth engagement program called Explorer’s.

  • Vote for Ellis

     On May 20th, the citizens have a very important decision to make for the Mayor of Great City of Shepherdsville! I would ask that you look at the facts and not all the false information some people are saying about Mayor Scott Ellis.

    I had the great honor to work for the City for seven years, before I retired on January 31st, 2014. I remember when our city was in a serious financial situation and the Mayor had to tighten up “the boot straps.” Because of his leadership, this City has now become one of the greatest Cities in the State of Kentucky.
