  • Meatless Solutions

     It’s time for New Year’s resolutions, particularly those about our health.

    Although gun violence remains the leading cause of death among young people, our most dangerous weapon is still our fork. Forty-five times as many die of chronic diseases linked to a diet containing animal products, sugar and salt.

    Hardly a month goes by without another study linking consumption of animal products with obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and certain cancers. No reputable study has ever shown an opposite result.

  • Mayor says thanks

     To all the wonderful people whom I have had the opportunity to work with over the past 12 years -- thank you.

    We have worked together, argued together, shared our problems and hopes together and established ourselves as a team -- not always in agreement but always together.

  • Children in Flight

     Children in Flight Justin Brandon Mahaffey Golf Outing was a huge success in raising money for education. The golf outing was held on Oct.11 and Children in Flight would like to thank Tanglewood Golf Course, our sponsors, players and donors. We had a great outing this year.

    Thanks to the following for your support: Prewitt & Son Trucking Company for donating golf balls, JoDee Higgins for food donation, Communications Electronic Design for our golf signs.

  • Thanks to young man

     My husband is in very poor health and is unable to do many things for himself. 

    I went to the grocery on this rainy Thursday afternoon and on my return found that my husband had fallen on the front porch. 

    Before I got out of the car a young man walking home from Bullitt Central had heard my husband’s call for help and responded immediately. This young man was able to get my husband inside and into his recliner with no help from either my husband or myself. 

  • Honoring the veterans

     Tuesday, November 11 was Veterans Day.

    I know there were several restaurants between here and Louisville that did open their doors, showing their kindness and hospitality to we Veterans, giving us a free lunch. 

    We are not asking for hand out, only respect for our time we gave in fighting for our freedom. 

    There were many that didn’t come home, giving their lives for our freedom. Just think about this; if we didn’t win our wars, where would we be? 

  • Thank you

     I would like to take this time to thank everyone that voted for and supported me in this November general election. I am humbled to be re-elected to serve as your mayor for the next four years.

    It has been a privilege and and an honor to serve you and I look forward to what the next four years will bring to our wonderful city and, as always, my door is open to you.

    Scott Ellis, Mayor of Shepherdsville

  • Get facts straight

     I feel compelled to write this letter so that members of our community who may have read the article last week regarding the recent Board of Education race will not be deceived by politically motivated untruths. 

    It was stated that while our staff “received only the state required increases in their yearly salaries,” that I renegotiated my contract multiple times receiving “an increase in compensation that has not been at all commensurate with the increase of the teachers and staff...”

  • Vote for Laswell

     As the mayor of the city of Hebron Estates, I would like to ask you to vote for Joe E. Laswell, Third District Magistrate.

    I am a lifelong Democrat, and yes, Joe is on the other side of the aisle. However, Joe Laswell has reached across that “political aisle” and worked with me.

    He provided me with his phone number, so if I ever have a question or needed his help, I could easily get in touch with him.

  • Boos uncalled for

     I had the pleasure of attending the forum the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce  organized Thursday evening. As a citizen and voter in the county, if I were to rate the event, I would give it 10 Plus stars from the greeting and the escort by the ROTC students to the excellent quality of food provided.

    I have attended events sponsored by the Filson Club that do not excel any better the our Chamber.

  • Vote for Rayhill

     I am writing a letter to show support for a candidate running for magistrate. Joe Rayhill is the best man for the job.

    He is hard working, honest, loyal and an enthusiastic person that will do everything in  his power to make sure that the job is done properly.

    I have known Joe for several years. He is strong in his Christian beliefs and exhibits family values that are second to none. He will work hard for the families of Bullitt County to ensure that the magistrate duties are completed properly, as well as in a timely fashion.
