  • Smoke-free in jeopardy

     A healthier, Smoke-Free Bullitt County is in jeopardy!  On Tuesday morning, January 7, 2014, at 9:30 am, the Bullitt County Fiscal Court will meet again for a possible vote on ordinance No. 13-32, which regulates smoking in buildings, workplaces and facilities owned or operated by Bullitt County.  

  • Becoming independent

     Some people have been wondering if I am going to run for election to political office in 2014.

    Me too, frankly.

    Only God knows what the future will hold, but I have finally decided to not run.

    Additionally, my wife and I have changed our political affiliation to “Independent.”

    That decision alone probably assures the end of any hope to serve in elected office.  But we agreed that we see so much negative, so much blind politics, from both major parties today that we really no longer wanted to be tied to either.

  • Operation Santa helpers

     Operation Santa has become a tradition in Hillview that has helped needy families in our area for over 25 years. We would like to take this opportunity to thank these proud sponsors of Hillview’s Operation Santa. Without the generous contributions of the following businesses and individuals Operation Santa would not be possible.:

  • Address concerns

     At the most recent Pioneer Village City Meeting the Mayor of Fox Chase remarked about trouble that several people in the City of Fox chase had caused. The mayor was vague in his criticism of these unnamed residents of Fox Chase. This gave me some concern. When our mayor has criticisms of our residents it is important to me and others to understand the nature of those criticisms so that we may address any and all issues.

  • Go buy ponchos

     At the Tuesday, Dec. 3, meeting of fiscal court, the request to fix a leaking roof at the jail was tabled for two weeks. They had to think about it.

    Inclimate weather is on the way. I suggest that Ruthie and Bob buy ponchos and tents for all the inmates.

  • Give the Gift of Life

     As we celebrate and feast with loved ones over the holidays, many of us wish to give back and help others.  Often, we struggle to find the time and the means to do so.  However, this Thanksgiving, there is something everyone can do that costs nothing, takes less than a minute, and gives hope to thousands of children, adults, and their families, in need. 

  • Soil situation under control

     In response to our highly esteemed former Superintendent Frank Hatfield’s letter published on Wednesday, I want to state clearly I detected no comments intended to disparage either Mr. Hatfield or the Board members at the time that BCHS was constructed.

    He correctly points out that the 43 year old building is solid, with little in the way of settlement or cracking and this is a testament to his care for the long-term success of the school district he served as superintendent for over 20 years.

  • Soil was studied

     I am writing this letter in response to the article titled “Mucky Situation,” that appeared in the November 18 issue of The Pioneer News related to the construction now underway at Bullitt Central High School.

  • Drinking, drugs are bad

     The news is bad, but there is good news too. 

    Kentucky ranks third highest in drug overdose deaths in the US (23.6 per 100,000 people) according to a new report from the Trust for America’s Health titled Prescription Drug Abuse: Strategies to Stop the Epidemic (www.HealthyAmericans.org).

    We would like to thank Mrs. Lewis for motivating us to give our best effort to help each child at MWES succeed.
