Today's Opinions

  • What local flavor will win the Kentucky Derby?

     A long, cold winter finally broke through to a beautiful spring, but heavy rains this week made a sloppy track at Hall of Famer Mike Farner Downs for the annual Bullitt County Derby.

    Among popular entries this year is the Bullitt Fiscal Court colt Smoking Suit, son of former Derby favorite Smoking Ban and the mare Whowearsthepants.

    Another favorite is School Cop, the Shepherdsville entry. School Cop comes from School Safety and Copper WIre.

  • Vote for Dan Patchin

     I would like to take a moment to recommend that all democrats vote for Dan Patchin for Bullitt County Jailer this coming May. I have know Dan for many years and he is dedicated to the county and the people he serves.

    Dan has always been a professional and brings a great deal of integrity to everything he does. It’s time for this county to bring this type of leadership to the Bullitt County Jail. I know that he will be responsive to the needs of the citizens and answer questions directly and honestly.

  • Officials deserve thanks

     I have heard with interest the political promises of the reduction of sewer rates for the users of the Shepherdsville sewer system. It is an empty political promise made without an understanding of the circumstances.

    Currently, the City is indebted for a sum in excess of $30 million for the sewer system. This debt has been passed from one generation to another due to poor management of past City Councils who incurred debt as a matter of course. The debt structure is such the expense will be shared with our children and grandchildren.

  • Easter poem

     As we celebrate Easter once again,

    Ma we all remember that Jesus died for our sins

    They mocked, and abused Him, and made Him a crown of thorns,

    Then He was betrayed by Judas one of His own.

     

    He was nailed to the cross

    between two thieves

    While His Mother, and loved ones

    Look on, and grieved.

     

    He told his disciples that He must die

    And He explained to them how and why.

    He also told them after tree days He would rise,

  • Helicopter Drop thanks

     On behalf of the churches involved in the Helicopter Egg Drop at the fairgrounds on Saturday, I would like to say “thank you,” to all the volunteer workers who gave of their time and money to make this event a success.

  • Vote for Tom Kelly

     I am pleased to endorse Tom Kelly for 4th District Magistrate.

    In the 32 year I’ve known Tom, he has proven to be a very dedicated, hardworking and loyal leader in the community.

  • BBB Warns: Beware of Derby Ticket Scams!

    BBB is warning those of you who want to attend the Kentucky Derby to beware of scam artists trying to fool you into buying fake Derby tickets!

  • New system to be implemented in court system

      Bullitt County is scheduled to “go live” with the court system’s new Accounts Receivable Program on May 1, 2014.  There are currently 27 other Kentucky counties which have made the transition.  

    As it exists now, the accounting system is an antiquated system of hundreds of old-fashioned ledger cards. 

    Information regarding payments must be manually entered into the system where the court records are kept but there is no communication between that program and the bookkeeping program.
