  • Do the best you can

     Arguments, fights, worries, and just the little things that we think are a big deal and important. We all do these things on a daily basis, but why do we?

    I couldn’t answer that question a year ago, but now I can. I was very sick and needed a lung transplant to live. One year ago I got the cal that there were lungs waiting for me.  My recovery was slow, but now I’m doing fine and been given a second chance at life. So today I can answer that question.

  • Vote for Abell

     I am writing to encourage your readers to re-elect Layne Abell as the Bullitt Circuit Court Clerk. Layne has done an outstanding job in his duties and in maintaining a high-quality staff and service-oriented office. He is well respected by members of the judicial system throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I am very proud to support Layne in his bid for re-election and hope your readers will do the same on May 22!

  • Nichols says thanks

     Nichols Elementary School PTA and staff members would like to thank the following for making our Spring Fling such a success:

  • Don't make it personal

     The request for a zoning change by the owners of Heritage Hill has ignited a firestorm of opposition. I have, and still do, oppose this change. However, I’ve been saddened that this passionate debate has taken a personal turn.

    I’ve lived on Valley View Drive for 36 years. Steve Plenge and Ted Korfhage and their families welcomed me into the neighborhood, and have treated me like family ever since. We have shared chores, equipment, laughs and tears over the fast few decades. We’ve shared the ups and downs that all of us go through in life.

  • Police chief commended

     I want to describe and share an experience we encountered in Mount Washington as a family and community members.

    As a parent, a human being, a professional social worker, and as a certified prevention specialist I know how important it is to advocate for ourselves and for others.  I want our two fraternal twin boys to know that their mom thought enough of them, and her family, and herself to “make the time” to write this letter to the newspaper. 

  • Library vital to community

     This letter is from my family  and my kids elected me to author these comments.

  • Think before you zone

     The Shepherdsville City Council will be considering rezoning the fields at the junction of Highways 245 and 61 such that a huge warehouse can be built.

    This is a mostly residential area. Is this what you want? Please write the Shepherdsville City Council that your voice may be heard.

    Here is my letter (sent to each councilmember individually):

    I am writing to ask you to consider these points when making a decision about zoning the property at 245 and 61 heavy industrial and to allow a 2million square foot warehouse.

  • Successful Unite effort

     Congratulations to the Unite Bullitt County Committee for being a part of achieving the goal of  changing the redistricting lines.

  • Commend the effort

     I wish to commend David Strange and Scott Wantland and all of the other citizens who worked so hard in Unite Bullitt County. You are to be proud of your role in helping build a better Bullitt County.

  • Stranger Danger

     Hi, my name is Clayton Luttrell. I go to DePaul School and I am a fourth grader. I am a Webelos I Cub Scout with Pack 47. I am writing this letter in order to earn my Citizenship Cub Scout Academic Pin. The issue I am writing about is missing children. Why do people kidnap children? I don’t understand.
