  • Thanks to contributors

     The Bowman Valley committee would like to thank Bullitt County Tourism for its generous donation of $500 to the Bowman Valley School Restoration Program.

    We would also like to thank the DAR (Daughters of American Revolution) for its very generous donation of $4,000 to be used to place a monument similar to the one in front of the Woodsdale School, next to Bowman Valley School.

    Thank you so much to these great organizations for their generosity and support to our project.

  • We are left to guess reasons for withdrawal

      It was the hot topic at the recent political forum.

    Melanie Roberts had withdrawn from the 49th District House of Representatives race just prior to Thursday’s event.

    “Due to circumstances beyond my control, I am announcing my withdrawal as a state representative candidate. I look forward to continuing to serve the peopleof Bullitt County as their judge executive.”

    That was it. That was all to be said. She did not return messages left by this reporter on Friday morning.

  • To our Derby guests, there are many great things in county

     It is this week that thousands of people will make Bullitt County their place of lodging as the Kentucky Derby is held a few miles up the road.

    Many make this an annual destination. Others are here for the first time.

    To all, we welcome you to Bullitt County.

    Despite what you might see on the national or regional media and despite what perceptions you might have about the county, there is a lot more great things happening if you peel the onion.

  • Skate park is more than that

      Growing up in Mount Washington, it was easy to wish we had more.

    More places to eat than the Dairy Queen. More stores to shop at than Houchens. More places to go than the swings at the city park.

    After I left for college, it seemed like everything came to town at once.

    All of a sudden, there was a movie theater within a bike ride of my house.

    Frozen yogurt shops offered a fun place to hang out with friends and the boutiques were at every corner.

  • Budget compromise reached

     We succeeded last week in passing a two-year, $21.5 billion biennial budget for the Commonwealth that restores funding for some of our most effective programs in K-12 education, and lessens the blow of deep cuts the governor proposed for our public colleges and universities.
