  • Late examples of Christmas cheer preserve Santa’s visit to Bullitt County for 2015

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - International crisis, national issues, even local situations continue to mount up, leading to another potential Christmas holiday cancellation in Bullitt County.

    Unlike past concerns, this year’s events lean far beyond a naughty/nice list.

    According to the official North Pole newspaper, the Joy-Spreader, Santa Claus was considering a bypass of the entire country this year, with Bullitt County specifically tied in with the decision.

  • Police efforts will enforce ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over’ during holidays

     FRANKFORT -- If you drive impaired in Jefferson County and surrounding counties -- beware.

    The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS), Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and Brown-Forman joined other Louisville Highway Safety Committee team members from highway safety and health-related agencies to kick off the holiday “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign recently at Fourth Street Live in Louisville.

  • Great holiday event

     Wow, what a turn out for our first City sponsored parade and our display light up at City Hall. 

    It took a lot of time spent by a group of guys that I can’t thank enough and that is our Public Works and Sewer Departments. 

    We need to also thank the citizens of Shepherdsville for coming out Friday; we hope you enjoyed it.

  • Dec. 31 deadline to change parties

     Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    As we approach the end of another year it DOES NOT seem possible that this year has come and gone so fast.  I want to make you aware of some things that happen in our office every year in December and January.

    The Bullitt County Clerk’s office will be closed for Christmas on Dec. 24-25. 

    We will be closed for New Year’s on Dec. 31- Jan. 1, 2016.    

    Voter Registration is something people usually only think about when it is time to vote two times a year.  

  • Attendance at governmental meetings key for everyone

     Attendance is important.

    Whether it is at school or work or as a member of a governmental body, being there is very important.

    In terms of school or work, the show will normally go on -- whether you are there or not.

    In government, however, your attendance may be a key reason why a legislative body meets or cancels  its proceedings.

    While we are a few months away from the filing deadline for local races, it is a good time to think before you sign up.

  • School system looks for some strategy input

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Bullitt County Public School System has a vision statement.

    It’s pretty standard -- “The leader in educational excellence.”

    And it has a fancy mission statement.

    “The Bullitt County Public Schools learning community will educate all students to high levels of academic performance as measured by state and national standards by creating and maintaining a positive learning environment with a comprehensive system of support.”

  • Healthy holiday eating important to good health year round

     Studies show that the average American gains one to two pounds over the holidays. While it may not sound like much, those pounds can add up over time.
