  • Legislators pay tribute to fallen heroes

     One of the most moving and important services we conduct each year in the House of Representatives is the memorial ceremony to honor members of our armed forces who join more than 6,700 American men and women who have lost their lives in recent wars.

    We paid tribute to Army Sergeant Michael Cable and Staff Sergeant Daniel “Danny” Fannin, true Kentucky heroes who died defending our freedom.

  • KidsFest gives chance to have fun, forget about Mother Nature

     When the doors open to Paroquet Springs Conference Centre on Saturday morning, we hope that everyone can forget about the awful winter weather Bullitt County has suffered through.

    It will be time for the annual KidsFest celebration, a presentation of the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce.

    From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., there will be dozens of booths. There will be dozens of entertainment acts throughout the facility.

    There will be demonstration by emergency personnel, like the fire departments, police department and EMS.

    1.    IRS Phone Scams are on the rise. Scammers call, saying they are with the IRS, telling the taxpayer he or she owes money. Then threatens the taxpayer with arrest unless they pay right away.

  • Session at halfway point looking for transparency

     FRANKFORT - The House officially passed the halfway point of the 60-day session this past week.

    Here’s a scorecard of what’s been done by the General Assembly in the past 30 days.

    More than 400 bills have been filed for consideration in this year’s session, with roughly 60 bills approved by the full House and sent on to the Senate.

  • Support county treasurer

     I have had the GREAT HONOR, to be our County Treasurer’s Pastor for the past three years and just found out that her Office and her Co-workers are working out of a broom closet. I can’t believe that some politician, could justify that our County Treasurer, who writes the payroll checks and pays our county bills would be stuck in a place like that because of politics.

  • Bring back that old way to inform us of snow closings

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - A little bit of this and a little bit of that….

    *I guess I’m getting old but I miss the way we used to notify the public about snow closings.

    For many of us, listening to the school closing music on television was a fixture.

    Now, the anchors will talk about Jefferson County schools and that’s about it. The rest of us will be directed to the bottom of the screen.

    And, radio is totally different.

    I remember listening to Wayne Perkey continue to read the school closing lists - over and over.

  • School system discovers new ways to push kids to excel

     We guess that the great thing about America is that even when an idea appears too good to even discuss, we will be proven wrong.

    Bullitt County Public School officials seemed to have a good idea on the table Monday evening.

    The plan was to create an academy where the top middle school students would join together in a single facility to do what they love - study math and science.

    The Discovery School would be part of Hebron Middle. It would open in the fall of 2014.

    It would be a great thing.
