  • 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. 

  • New law not needed

     We all know meth labs are a problem, but there is already a procedure in place to control the sale of “over the counter cold medications,” that contain pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine is an ingredient in the manufacture of meth. Pharmacists already are required to check ID’s, record, and report who buys these “over the counter” meds. Your Bullitt County Rep., Linda Belcher is sponsoring a bill in Frankfort that would require all law-abiding citizens to get a doctor’s prescription in order to buy simple cold medications.

  • Honest businessman

     This letter goes out to all of you (like me) that have taken my car to what I thought was  a reputable dealership or mechanic, to find out (like I) that dome aren’t so honest!!!

  • Support the workers

     Do politicians feel American workers are less human than themselves, the wealthy or corporations?

  • Police hindered by snow

     Our police force here in Shepherdsville is fantastic. They work hard to keep us safe and bring criminals to justice. My question: Is our police force property equipped for catching criminals in winter conditions too?

  • Guthrie can't just say no

     According to OpenSecrets.org, a nonpartisan guide to money’s influence on U.S. elections and public policy, it would appear Brett Guthrie took more campaign money from healthcare interests than any other group. No wonder he’s so interested in repealing a law that make sure autistic children and people with preexisting medical conditions had access to health coverage.

  • Appreciate Layne Abell

     I sincerely appreciate Mr. Layne Abell, Bullitt County Circuit Court Clerk, for his leadership  and support in coordinating the resolution of my brother’s Mississippi driver’s license problem.
