  • 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

  • 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.

  • Happy ending

     I?d like to share with your readers a “news” story that actually has a happy ending. My hope is that others will follow suit if they’re in the same situation. Our beloved “Bear,” a chow-mix dog, was last seen in the neighborhood on a recent Wednesday night. So when she didn?t show up for a day or two, we all started to get really nervous. I can honestly say I felt like my ?kid? was lost, wandering the road, or worse.

  • Thanks to community

     This is an open letter of thanks to the community of Shepherdsville. Over the last five weeks you supported your Shepherdsville Titans football and Cheer teams by giving donations at one of our many roadblocks or by purchasing lots of Krispy Kreme and candy bars. Each of the children you?ve helped will leave the fields a better person this year through the sports of Football and Cheer with your generosity. Without you we are only the Titans but with you we are the Shepherdsville Titans.

  • Thanks for benefit

  • Post Office must fix woes

     The Post Office would have made over 400,000 dollars in 2012, but for a death stroke bill passed in December 2006 which mandated that within 10 years the Post Office had to pony up 75 years in advance for all the healthcare benefits of all the postal retirees. This burden cost the Post Office over 6 billion dollars a year. That kind of burden would kill any department of business, especially when it is regulated by a postal commission.
