    I wonder if Julie Wilkins remembers getting her picture taken while she washed cars during the Bullitt Central Football Boosters car wash?

  • 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.

  • Leaders at all levels need to learn to be true leaders

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- For the past several years, the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce has hosted a luncheon featuring U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell.

    The 2015 version of the gathering occurred on July 20 at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    A nice crowd but not as many elected officials as one might think.

    However, in reality, they didn’t miss much.
