  • Thanks to Belcher

     The intersection at Armstrong Lane/Fisher Lane and Highway 44 has made a big difference to those of us who live in that area.

    It has really helped with traffic congestion.

    Now there is going to be a turning lane and light at Bells Mill Road and Highway 44. Getting that intersection completed will make a turn out of Bells Mill onto Highway 44 a lot safer. The completion date is set for next summer.

  • Christmas spirit year-round

     At 29, he has a debilitating back injury, worth just over $700 a month in disability insurance. She’s a star at a local fast food restaurant. She looks for a second job. A truck is their lifeline and home for this family of six.

    Yeah, I said six. 

    Lots of body warmth to share this Christmas season.

    The youngest is two. Her sister, the oldest, a young teen, with two more in between.

  • Thanks to Belcher

     Guru Market/Spirit Gas Station, and other businesses along Old Preston Highway, would like to thank State Rep. Linda Belcher for helping in getting the road fixed and reopen.

    The state planned to shut the roadway down after it was damaged, and Ms. Belcher fought to keep it open as a historic roadway.

  • Great holiday event

     Wow, what a turn out for our first City sponsored parade and our display light up at City Hall. 

    It took a lot of time spent by a group of guys that I can’t thank enough and that is our Public Works and Sewer Departments. 

    We need to also thank the citizens of Shepherdsville for coming out Friday; we hope you enjoyed it.

  • Fight for your home
  • Skip the Turkey on Thanksgiving

     While President Obama is pardoning two turkeys for Thanksgiving, every one of us can exercise that same presidential power by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance that spares a turkey’s life.

    And here are some good reasons:

    *You can brag about pardoning a turkey - like Obama.

    *You truly are what you eat. Who wants to be a “butterball”?

    *Fruits and vegetables don’t have to carry government warning labels.

    *You won’t sweat the environment and food resources devastation guilt trip.

  • Loss of a great team member

     Frank and Margaret Hatfield have been community service leaders for as long as most of us remember.

    Bullitt County never had a better known and loved couple around the state of Kentucky.

    With the passing of Frank, we lost half of a rare and wonderful team -- both AARP volunteers.

    We share Margaret Hatfield’s loss of a very brilliant and a very good man.

  • Lvestock Expo returns

     Expect to see an uptick in visitors to Louisville and throughout Kentucky when the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE) returns for its 42nd year to the Kentucky Exposition Center November 3-20.

  • Straighten out the record

    I read an opinion letter from a Ms. Thompson that stated Gloria Taft and Dana James brought the “brink of bankruptcy” to a balanced budget (in the city of Shepherdsville).

    I am not being negative toward these ladies but do wish to straighten the record. They were not in office when this began and the council at the time (including myself) worked hard with the mayor to make tough decisions that were not popular and understandably so.

    All these recoveries were in place when these ladies took office and then they continued with it.

  • Simon, Hardy real heroes

    On Oct. 21, 2015, Ms. Thompson stated in the Pioneer News that Gloria Taft and Dana James saved the city of Shepherdsville from the brink of bankruptcy.

    Well, I want to set the record straight. In 2011, six council members (Faith Portman, Don Cundiff, Bonnie Enlow, Larry Hatfield, Bernie Brown and Alan Wetzel), the mayor, Nick Simon with Publishers Printing and Bill Hardy with The Peoples Bank of Bullitt County worked together as a team to save the city of Shepherdsville from bankruptcy.
