  • Keep grass laws intact

     My understanding is local attorney Eric Farris has taken steps to encourage the Hillview City Council to amend it’s ordinances to no longer require owners of industrial or commercial property to maintain their properties so vegetation would not be over twelve inches high.

  • Watch for the kids

     Every day driving to and from work on Highway 44 to 31W I see almost all drivers beside myself and a few others, exceeding the 25 mph speed limit in the school zones.

    I am tired of tailgaters flying around me in excess of 35 mph in the school zone at the ramp to I-65. I cannot remember the last time I saw a police car in these zones. Bullitt County and Shepherdsville P.D. need to start being there for the children! And write some tickets!

  • Thanks from DARE

  • Driving a bus

     I have been substituting as a Bullitt County Bus Driver the last few weeks and I want to share a few things I have learned. A dozen reasons why driving a school bus is very stressful.

    1. Keep the children safe at all costs.

    2. Watching the traffic – people who runs stop signs or pull out in front of the bus, and at the same time watching the bus gauges and students.

    3. Completing paperwork, then redoing it as students move in and out.

    4. Trying to stay on schedule.

  • Thanks from HERT

     The Hillview Emergency Response Team would like to thank everyone who came out to support our 2013 Emergency Response Fair and the Red Cross Blood Drive.

  • Why upset with jailer?

     I cannot understand why Fiscal Court is so upset with Jailer Knox. She operates the Detention Center to state requirements, has not had any major problems with the inmates, has a loyal staff and work force and is very cooperative with assisting the county and cities in various clean-up efforts.

    Recently she purchased two vehicles with funds from the Detention Center canteen. The vehicles are used exclusively for the transportation of inmates and staff. The use of canteen funds for this purpose is legal and cost the taxpayers nothing.

  • Enlightening

     Wanted to share this quote I found it very interesting, enlightening, and though provoking…

    “Politics is perhaps the only profession for which no preparation is thought to be necessary.”

    -Robert Louis Stevenson

  • Save Saturday mail

     On July 1, 1863 free mail delivery was authorized in cities. From the start, carriers were expected to make deliveries “as frequently as the public convenience…shall require,” Monday through Saturday. (12 Stat.703.)

  • Background checks

     A few months ago, some conservative senators felt the need to kill a popular, bipartisan proposal on firearm background checks bill (H.R. 1565), and relied primarily on a single talking point: the proposal might lead to a firearm database.

    The very idea of some kind of national gun registry was so offensive to them, that the legislation had to die at the hands of a Republican filibuster. It didn’t matter that the bipartisan bill had no such database. It didn’t matter that the bipartisan bill explicitly made the creation of such a registry a felony.
