Today's Opinions

  • Home on the mountain top where the Holsclaws lived

     Mountain Top is a portion of Bullitt County located now as property of Fort Knox. 

    Mountain Top is the highest elevation on Fort Knox and the most easterly high point hill known as Dawson Knob.

    It also, is south side of the Salt River between Bardstown Junction on the east side and Pitts Point on the west side being  at the junction of the Salt and Rolling rivers. 

    The station that was about 9 meters south of the road along the top of the ridge was the land belonging to William Holsclaw.

  • Saying goodbye

     The law enforcement community lost a couple of good guys recently.

    Jerry Corum and Lucky Dennis recently had their “last calls” through Central Dispatch.

    Corum served the county police and sheriff’s office well. He finished his career as a deputy at the Bullitt County Detention Center.

    Back before drugs were discussed like they were today, I heard of the story where Jerry and a group of officers struggled to subdue a man.

    It wound up that Jerry literally lost a piece of his ear in that scuffle.

  • Commercial growth can enhance county

     When are we going to get another sit-down restaurant?

    Why can’t we have a major mall in Bullitt County?

    Both are questions asked at political forums, as well as whenever the county’s economic development director enters a room.

    The focus on EDA has been industrial and light industrial growth. 

    Location remains a key factor and Bullitt County has that.

  • County finally looking at way it pays staff

     You had to dig a little into the recently adopted budget to find some of the changes in salaries for county employees.

    And, for others, it was pretty transparent.

    No matter the way it was done, Bullitt Fiscal Court took an important step in dealing with a common problem -- turnover.

    Turnover has been a tremendous issue for departments such as EMS and Central Dispatch.

  • Aquatic views shouldn’t sink possible center

     A research firm should be wrapping up a survey of over 600 county residents.

    The question is their opinion on a new aquatic center in Bullitt County.

    As the aging county pools are slowly being closed, the decision is whether to sink more money into making costly repairs on very old facilities or to participate in an indoor facility.

    Tough decision as such facilities are costly to build but even more costly to maintain. To simply build it and they will come is not always a guarantee.

  • Finding solution to growing homeless issue serious one

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - At a time when the United States of America celebrates the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, Bullitt County still continues to scratch its collective head on what to do with those in a land not free, existing bravely without a home.

    In an attempt to alleviate the homeless problem in the county, a collection of civic-minded individuals initially gathered to discuss the situation and determine a solution.

    That meeting resulted in numerous solutions made by numerous individuals and organizations.
