  • Coyle off mark

     Paul Coyle’s April Fool’s cartoon depicting President Obama missed the mark on the price of gasoline.

    During Obama’s first two years, gasoline prices remained below $3 per gallon after having reached a near $5 per gallon mark the summer prior to his 2008 election. 

  • Are You Aware?

     As a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Board member, I have attended Family Court on the docket where CASA advocates for children on cases involving dependency, abuse, and neglect.  This was a true eye opener for me.

  • Thanks for BE hoops

     The Bullitt East Basketball program would like to thank our fans, the people of Mount Washington, our parents and the staff of Bullitt East HS for the tremendous support we received during the regional and state tournaments over the last 3 weeks. It is a blessing and a pleasure to play and represent the people of our great community and we thank each and every one of you that bought t-shirts, tickets, came to open practice, traveled long distances and waited outside in the rain to watch us play. 

  • Educated Decisions

     As a substitute teacher in the Bullitt County school system, I’ve had the opportunity to see the positive influence the D.A.R.E. program has on elementary school children. As the students prepare to “graduate” from this course, they write an essay summarizing what they have learned. 

  • Burlyn Pike a great man

  • Thanks from the youth

     The Jackson Hill General Baptist Church Youth Group would like to thank everyone who came out and joined us on Feb. 26 for our first breakfast fundraiser.

    Also, the kids would like to thank all the members that helped to put this together and a special thank you to Sharon Breeding for all of her help making this an extra special morning. We are very grateful that our breakfast was a huge success. We appreciate all the generous donations. The proceeds will go towards our Vacation Bible School and many other youth activities.

  • Facts on smoking issue

     The Bullitt County Board of Health meets on 3/22/11 to vote on a Smoke-Free Regulation to protect the public’s health. A small minority is making big noise against this regulation passing. Their reasons are unfounded and illogical. Let us look at some of the FACTS regarding a smoke-free Bullitt County policy, and clear up some misunderstanding surrounding the issue.

  • Shop and Share success

     Thanks to all the wonderful people who supported First Lady Jane Breshear’s Shop and Share program held at the Kroger stores in February.

    The Shop and Share program was established to give shoppers the opportunity to help supply and support the Domestic Violence shelters and Day Centers in Kentucky. This year thanks to the generosity and support of the Shepherdsville and Mount Washington Kroger stores, hundreds of supplies were collected for the Day Center in Bullitt County.

  • Dedicated county judge

     Recently I was privileged to attend the Healthy Hearth Luncheon at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre. If this event ever comes to Bullitt County again you will miss a treat if you don’t attend. It was both informative and entertaining.

  • Take a real poll

     I am extremely surprised and saddened to see the recent steam-rolling of the citizens in Bullitt County by an entity supposedly on our side.

    The ‘survey’ taken by the Health Department on the proposed ‘Smoking Ban’ and the results presented to the public is an example of stretching the numbers to suit the situation, while completely fooling the public into believing the issue is protecting citizens from cigarette smoke - when in fact it is truly a step at MORE government policing of our daily lives.
