  • Schools only stability for 300 homeless kids

     Instead of starting your morning with breakfast, you start by packing up your things. 

    Your mom says our stay at the hotel is over and we have to find a new place to go.

    You’re late to school again because mom’s car wouldn’t start this morning and you had to find a ride there. 

    She kisses you goodbye telling you everything will be okay, but you’re not so sure.

    Your stomach rumbles, but you’re too late for breakfast. 

  • House reaching session’s home stretch

     FRANKFORT – We are in the final stretch of the Regular Session and the House has been hard at work to better Kentucky. 

    We passed a variety of measures as of late that will expand educational choice in Kentucky, reform our legal system, and positively benefit our area. 

  • AG helps spread Sunshine for public

     Sunshine Week is celebrated across the nation every March to highlight the importance of open government and how only transparency can ensure accountability. 

    In Kentucky, Sunshine Week (March 12-18) could not come at a more important time, as the very protections afforded by our state’s Open Records laws are being attacked, and could even be eviscerated, by some of our public universities.

  • Transparency difficult one to describe but vital

     Over the past decade, transparency in government has been the big buzzword.

    As we celebrate Sunshine Week across the nation, it is important that the public takes an active role in its government.

    In a recent survey by Pulse Research Inc. in Kentucky, the overwhelming finding is that people still read newspapers.

    And, one of the key items they look for in their local newspaper is legal notices.

    This survey which was one in which individuals were invited to go online, over 340 people participated.

  • House passes critical education bill

     FRANKFORT — With just a few days left of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, much work remains, but much has been accomplished, especially as of late. Important legislation has passed on a variety of fronts, including education reform, reforms to our legal system, and promoting industrial hemp in Kentucky.

    At the end of last week, the House passed critical legislation that would expand school choice, and provide more opportunities for low-income children to receive a high quality education.

  • Sanitation rates are OK

     On the subjects of the Sanitation District rate increase: If you were like me -- paying for this service in both Bullitt County and Jefferson -- you would gladly accept this modest bill and thank the volunteers that ride herd on Bullitt County’s struggling agency that takes your waste.

    My Jefferson County bill is twice that one in Bullitt County. 

    Either this county can stop issuing building permits, which includes those that bring jobs, or we can fund this agency sufficient personnel.

  • Homelessness

     Say you care about the homelessness, really?….Really? “Room In The Inn” B.C. has come to the aid of 215 family units in the last 23 months and around Bullitt County!

    Why wait months or years to make a difference? Drivers, laundry help, mentors and meals are needed today! C’mon Christian, Matthew 25:34-40 is calling your name. 502-714-3742, heartofmycity@gmail.com. 

    Be apart of the miracles!

  • Endangered Species Act

     The Endangered Species Act is supported by 90% of Americans, and has had remarkable success in bringing back manatees, bald eagles, and wolves and money more from extinction.
