  • Nelson for state treasurer

     Rick Nelson is running for state treasurer. I have had the pleasure of working with him for the last six years as a fellow legislator. He is a retired educator who has spent his life serving the people of Kentucky.

    He works hard and is a good, honest man.

    I am asking that you consider voting for Rick Nelson for state treasurer when you go vote in November.

  • Vote Conway, Overly

     Good, quality programs have a positive impact on young learners, not only cognitively but long-term socially, emotionally and behaviorally.

    Please vote for the candidates who care about the children of Kentucky and support early childhood education -- Jack Conway and Sannie Overly.

  • Pavilion moving forward

     The Mount Washington City Council and its mayor have been discussing, for some time, the need for a community center; a pavilion-type building, that would provide shelter for community events, a civic club fish fry, a place that our farmers market can call home and even a music festival on occasion.

    We already have a small city park, with the city fountain on that property, in the center of town. We needed a place to locate the new city pavilion, but certainly had no place available without spending a lot of city funds for the property.

  • Thanks from HOPE

     HOPE would like to take this opportunity to thank the following for their help and support:

  • Thanks for support

     On behalf of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, we would like to say “thank you” to all who supported the DARE chili supper.

    You may have made a donation to the raffle or given a monetary donation or just came and ate.

    Your generosity was greatly appreciated.

    We would also like to thank First Baptist Church of Shepherdsville for the use of their fellowship hall; the Bullitt County Woman’s Club; and employees of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office.

  • Several need to go

     While mayor Ellis is waiting to resign, I would also like to request the resignation of Gloria Taft and Dana James.

    Their place on the council is detrimental to the city and its citizens. And, by the way, I hear McDonalds is hiring. 

    Surely they could do a good job there. I know a lot of people who would be glad to give them references.

  • Prostate Awareness Month

     September was prostate cancer awareness month, and for a man being aware of prostate cancer means knowing your PSA level.

  • The other side of history
  • Thanks Linda for road project

     I want to acknowledge and personally thank Linda Belcher for her positive actions in making sure the section of road on North Preston Highway between John Harper and Bells Mill Roa can/will be repaired and reopened as quickly as possible.

    I am confident that without her efforts/attention the process for this to occur could have potentially never occurred.

    Thanks Linda and keep working for our county as I know you will. I am sure I speak, too, for the many businesses located in the area.

  • Know your history

     I’d like to share my experience from July 18, 2015.
