  • How to win a war

     I addressed you Mister (Trump) because I believe every man should earn his title and most only become famous after death. I voted for you but God chose you to lead this great country back to sanity.

  • Roby says thank you
  • Roadside trash

     I always love it when the trash collectors come every April to pick up YOUR trash on I-65.

    The roadway looks so  nice.. for about two days.

    Why not save your trash for a trash receptacle so we never  see it? That way our roadways would always look great.

  • Other side of charter story

     There were some national initiatives former President Obama favored that I disagreed with; and, one that I respectfully but vehemently disagreed with, was the concept of charter schools. In his book, “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama cited his reasons for supporting charter schools. I found that none of them actually defended this idea. 

  • Guilty or not, indictments cause county great harm

     There is always that disclaimer on any indictment -- such charge does not mean guilt or innocence. It only means that a certain number of grand jurors felt there was enough evidence to move forward with a criminal trial.

    While an indictment does not mean guilt or innocence, it can bring shame.

    It can obviously bring shame to the individual indicted. Even if cleared of the allegations, the cloud is never totally lifted.

    It can also bring shame to a community.

  • Leach Family: One of the county’s earliest settlers

     Bullitt County started out with four magisterial districts.  The third District was name Leaches District.  Bullitt County was created out of Jefferson and Nelson County in 1796.  

    The borders and names have changed over several years.  From around 1870 through as late as 1940 the district was known as the Leaches District.   Some people thought the name Leaches was a creepy blood sucking worm.  

    But, the District was named after Enoch Leach.
