• Thanks from AARP

     This Chapter of AARP would like to thank everyone who helped make our annual fall fundraiser such a success on November 9 – especially John Wigginton and Allen Peavler for their music and auctioning skills, Bullitt East JROTC for presenting colors, Kettle Creek, Bootleg Barbecue, Cracker Barrel and The Cakery for donating the wonderful dinner, and the Baptist Youth who set up, served and cleaned up that evening.

  • Gripe with jail phone system

      I am writing in response to the letter in the paper from Beve Smith on 11-14-12 concerning the Bullitt County Detention Center. I am glad to see that I am not the only one frustrated with the jail. I have a relative in the jail and found out this is true. They take 25% of money placed on the inmates account even for old fees. I think this is not fair when they are serving a totally different sentence.

  • GOP won't abandon issue

     For six years (2000-2006) the Republican Party controlled both houses of Congress, the Presidency, and the Supreme Court. During this time they managed to cut taxes for the wealthy, de-regulate the financial industry, and start two un-funded wars. However, they did not attempt to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Why was such a central plank of the Republican platform for the past thirty years allowed to languish on the back burner during a time when the Republicans possessed the resources to make a serious challenge to abortion rights?

  • Thanks to supporters

  • Good people elected

     Just a word regarding the election.

    In view of the fact that Fox Chase has improved its council greatly, I am satisfied that I lost to younger and healthier citizens.

    It is hoped that more citizens will take in interest in attending meetings and let their views of city affairs be known.

    Thanks to those who voted for me. You will happy with those elected.

    Lottie Judd

  • Vote for Keith

  • Vote for Keith

     I am a World War II veteran and many men and women died for your right to vote. Regardless of political affiliation, you should take time to known for whom you are voting. I have known Paulita Keith since she was born. As an educated person, she is the only candidate for Circuit Court Clerk who graduated from college; she is a CPA with 25 years of business experience; she was the 2012 Professional woman of the Year; she was published twice in her career and she is a member of multiple professional organizations.

  • Vote for Dick Heaton

     Never having written a “letter to the editor,” this is indeed a first for me but having such a passion for our State Representative position, I feel compelled to endorse candidate Dick Heaton.
