  • Thanks from Scottish Rite

     For the past nine 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 throughout the state to have a fun day and contribute to a very worthy cause, “The Students of Bullitt County Schools.”

  • Thanks for donations

     The family of Jamie “J.T.” Harris and the Bullitt County Rod and Gun Club would like to thank the Bullitt County Supermarket for their generous donation of food during our time of bereavement and loss. Your thoughtfulness and generosity was deeply appreciated. Your kindness was felt by many in our community. Having such a caring local business is what makes our town so very special.

  • Conservatism?

          I was delighted to learn the outcome of this past election cycle when Republicans nearly swept the race for Shepherdsville City Council.

  • Relay for Life thanks

     I would like to say Thank-You to the Sheriff’s Deputies:  Trevor Ford, Derek Nalley, Terry Perkins, Jim Parrish and Josiah Qualls and to Mike Howe, Bullitt County employee, for dedicating their personal time on a cool and rainy Friday night to help the Circuit Clerk’s office raise money for the American Cancer Society. 

  • Thanks for support

     Hats off to the people of Bullitt County for their support of the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education’s (BCFEPE) third annual fundraiser held Friday, April 26.

  • Smoking ban needed

     Kentucky’s 2013 legislative session ended on Tuesday, March 26, and Frankfort was unsuccessful in passing legislation to make public places in Kentucky smoke free. In a state that leads the nation in lung cancer deaths and smoking rates, it is tragic that the General Assembly lacks the political will to protect its citizens from toxic second-hand smoke. All Kentuckians will pay the price for this missed opportunity to reduce smoking’s tremendous health and economic burden on the state.

  • Council doing right thing

     I am writing this correspondence concerning the budget amendment, recently approved by the Shepherdsville City Council. The discussion of this amendment has been heated and I believe many misconceptions have been created. 

  • Expanding Medicaid

     Kentucky has the chance to provide health care coverage to Kentuckians ages 50-64. Expanding Medicaid will enable adults making just $15,000 per year to get the health care they need. Without the expansion, uninsured adults will continue to go without care or receive charity care in hospital emergency rooms. And since taxpayers pay for charity care, expanding Medicaid can save taxpayers money.

  • Thanks for caring

     I would like to commend the staff at Elmcroft of Mount Washington, an assisted-living facility for seniors, for being so helpful to our family. My dad lived there for a year and a half before passing away recently. 

  • Just a little humor when preparing your chicken

     You pluck a chicken before you can cook it. That is called a chicken plucker or any bird that has feathers you pluck it first.
