Today's Opinions

  • Shepherdsville Operation Santa

     Shepherdsville Operation Santa had another successful year and served over 150 families in Shepherdsville and Bullitt County. I would like to thank the people who helped make this year a success.

  • Lincoln Trail thanks MUW

     As we enter a new year and reflect upon the successes of 2013, I want to take this opportunity to thank and recognize the very generous supporters of Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System and United Way of Central Kentucky.

  • Thanks from AARP

     Mount Washington AARP just celebrated its greatest year of community service with donations to charities that help seniors, veterans, children, and those in need. Members from Fern Creek, Taylorsville, Shepherdsville, and Okolona met with us and multiplied our effect with thousands of volunteer hours spent collecting goods and cash. Businesses all over north Bullitt County Jefferson County provided gifts to help with fundraising.

  • Thanks PBI, community

     Through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, many people offer generous hearts to help those that are less fortunate. It’s a time to bless others and a time to reflect on just how blessed we all are.

    This year A New Hope Pregnancy Resource Center was blessed to receive donations collected by PBI Bank located at 340 S. Buckman St. in Shepherdsville and their patrons. We received a cash donation along with a diaper bag, baby clothing, diapers and several other infant necessities.

  • Smoking ban for All

     I am a resident of Bullitt County and would like to explain my reasons for urging our Fiscal Court to either drop sections 2 and 4 from the proposed Smoking Ordinance 13-32 or vote it down all together.  

  • Community has chance to make suggestions on land-use plan

     At crunch time, there are plenty of comments and suggestions being offered on the proposed land-use plan for Bullitt County.

    This is not unexpected.

    The public has until Jan. 31 to submit suggestions to the plans devised by consultant Kriss Lowry. Those must be turned into the Bullitt County Planning office in the courthouse annex.

    A public meeting will be held on Feb. 20 for anyone wishing to make comments.

  • Selling of Beam doesn’t have to be bad situation for community

     In the corporate world, no merger or buyout should be surprising.

    It is normally just a surprise to those who are most affected - the employee.

    On Monday, Beam Inc. and Suntory Holdings of Japan announced their plans to join forces.

    For those who own Beam stock, it will be a great deal as they would be paid around $83 per share, up 25 percent over the Friday’s closing price.

    The purchase price would be a cool $16.5 billion, maybe a little smoother than any of Beam’s finest bourbons.

  • Positive 2013 signs in state as session begins

     FRANKFORT - As the General Assembly returns to the Capitol on Tuesday this week, it is worth taking one last look back at 2013, to review some of the issues my legislative colleagues and I have been studying in recent months.

    We call this period the interim, and it begins each year during the late spring and continues through the holidays.
