  • Want to pay more taxes?

     What do you think of tax increases? Not inflationary increases but the kind of increase that is applied to fund pet projects, or worse, gross malpractice by leaders.

    Not good? OK, we agree.

    Government should be kept in check. That concept has no party. If you look real hard at what Frankfort is doing on the tax front, you will learn that in 2014 your government gave cities, counties, and most other taxing entities, a blank check. They took the ceiling off the insurance tax. The vote was almost unanimous.

  • Need some advice?

     I read with interest today about the Mayor and councils decision concerning the Shepherdsville Community Center. It saddens me that there cannot be any  better decisions made for the benefit of our community. 

    Perhaps at some point  everyone forgot that it is a “community” center and not just a building.  Sweat, hard work and private monies went into creating a place for everyone to utilize. 

  • Sanitation rates are OK

     On the subjects of the Sanitation District rate increase: If you were like me -- paying for this service in both Bullitt County and Jefferson -- you would gladly accept this modest bill and thank the volunteers that ride herd on Bullitt County’s struggling agency that takes your waste.

    My Jefferson County bill is twice that one in Bullitt County. 

    Either this county can stop issuing building permits, which includes those that bring jobs, or we can fund this agency sufficient personnel.

  • Homelessness

     Say you care about the homelessness, really?….Really? “Room In The Inn” B.C. has come to the aid of 215 family units in the last 23 months and around Bullitt County!

    Why wait months or years to make a difference? Drivers, laundry help, mentors and meals are needed today! C’mon Christian, Matthew 25:34-40 is calling your name. 502-714-3742, heartofmycity@gmail.com. 

    Be apart of the miracles!

  • Endangered Species Act

     The Endangered Species Act is supported by 90% of Americans, and has had remarkable success in bringing back manatees, bald eagles, and wolves and money more from extinction.

  • Room in the Inn

     Congratulations to the new mayor and new city council in Shepherdsville.

    The year 2017 will be a great one for the city of Shepherdsville. Heart of My City volunteers (providing family and individual shelter for the homeless/displaced with short-term stabilization through our Room in the Inn program) hope the new leadership will cut through the bureaucratic red (or blue) tape to grant limited use of the Shepherdsville Community Center as a transitional location in the early morning hours while our vans transport guests to work and/or school.

  • Seum applauded for work

     The Kentucky Chamber applauds Senate Majority Caucus Chair Dan Seum on his leadership to make right-to-work legislation a reality during the first week of the 2017 General Assembly, ensuring Kentucky is a state where businesses want to locate.

  • Thanks from family

     The family of William L. (Billy) Dezern would like to thank the Hillview community, our family and friends for their support through our loss of Billy.

    We received an abundance of prayers, lov and help.

    Thanks to Lee Basham (Go Fund Me), T-shirt donations by Stacy Johnston and Joe Bohannon; and all the contributions that assisted us through the most difficult times in our lives.

  • Shepherdsville Lions looking for members to join organization

        The Shepherdsville Lions Club has been serving our community since 1945.  That’s a seventy-two-year tradition of civic volunteerism.  Unfortunately, like many public service organizations in this day, the Shepherdsville Lions Club is now struggling to survive.  After 72 years, the club needs your help, your active membership, if it is to continue.

  • Thanks June

     I would like to publicly express my gratitude to June Daugherty, director of the Bullitt County YMCA, upon her recent retirement. 

    June has been an avid advocate for our community as she grew the YMCA into what it has become today. 

    Over the course of her career, June has acted as a teacher, fund-raiser, promoter and manager of the YMCA’s programs, assets and personnel while maintaining the organization’s Christian emphasis.
