Today's Opinions

  • Interim is still busy time

     During the interim our committees continue to meet on a monthly basis usually in Frankfort. I am a member of the following committees: Appropriations and Resources, Education, Veterans affairs and Public Protection, County Government, Labor Industry, Administration Regulations, Education Assessment, budget subcommittee on Secondary Education an Women Veterans issues. We are also given two days a month to use for individual meetings and paperwork so I am in Frankfort frequently. 

  • Mayor selection duty of members who sit in office

     Let’s hope this is one of those editorials written that is no longer relevant because after deadline, the powers that be took care of the matter.

    But, for a little lack of confidence, let’s just ponder the craziness surrounding the mayor’s vacancy in Shepherdsville.

    Yes, Circuit Judge Rodney Burress’ ruling on the legal question in Shepherdsville probably caught a few people by surprise.

  • Chapeze family big part of local history

     Chapeze is located on the Long Lick Creek in Bullitt County, Kentucky.  

    It is a small village by the name Chapeze Station and is twenty-four miles from Louisville, Kentucky.  Chapeze is one of the oldest stations in the county.  A land grant was given by Governor Benjamin Harrison of Virginia to Peter Shepherd and his son Adam who were surveyors in 1782.

  • Constitution Week honored by Salt River NSDAR chapter

     “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    These words, writting 229 years ago, are the Preamble to our Constitution.

    This is Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23, celebrating the signing of this important document.

  • Pay attention to emergency sirens

      Hey Bullitt County drivers, let’s chat for a second.

    I know I’ve only had my driver’s license for less than 10 years and that there are far more experienced people than me on the roads. However, I’m convinced there must have been some miscommunication when I read my driver’s manual and took my test than when the rest of the county took theirs.

  • Childhood poverty is an issue

     As a school district and community, we believe that all children can learn. 

    As Americans, we stand for equality of opportunity - everyone should have access to the American Dream. 

    Sure, most of us realize that those with wealthy or connected families sometimes get breaks the rest of us don’t get, but that is the relative few.

    Work hard, study hard, make your own luck, take advantage of the blessings of being born in the USA.

  • Congrats to our kids

     Over the past couple of weeks, youngsters from Bullitt County have represented our community well.

    From Florida to Washington, athletes excelled.

    The Mount Washington 8U softball team fought back from a tough regional finish to bring home the Babe Ruth World Series title.

    This is a great accomplishment for the girls, their coaches, the parents and grandparents and those who supported those efforts.
