  • Nostalgic look at Belmont community

    I am 82 years old, and my wife (80) and I are retired in Palm Desert, Calif.

    Born in Belmont I spent the first 16 years of my life there. We are attending the Belmont Baptist Church for the first time in 66 years, and it calls for a bit of nostalgia and reminiscing about life during and after Belmont.

    Regular attendance at Sunday School and Church each Sunday was expected.  My father was the Sunday School Superintendent, and  my mother was the teacher of a Sunday School Class of small children.

  • Is it time for Olde Tyme to return?

    When arriving into the community over 25 years ago, Bullitt County was home of four major festivals each year.

    The Mount Washington Historical Society had the spring festival each May and Lebanon Junction’s Old Fashion Days were held in early October.

    The Bullitt County Fair was held in the middle of June at the fairgrounds.

    And the Shepherdsville Olde Tyme Homecoming was held along Frank E. Simon Avenue.

  • School attendance very important

    The beginning of each new school year your child begins another part of their amazing journey from the first day of kindergarten to high school graduation.

    One of the most essential elements for a student’s success is good attendance.

    Attendance is important and must be taken seriously for kindergarten students, elementary, middle and high school students.

    Students need to be at school each day in order to be properly prepared for the important next steps in learning.

  • Redistricting - let the war of fears begin

    Seldom does anything generate the controversy caused when school boundary lines are altered.

    With continued growth and the construction of a new elementary school in Mount Washington, the dreaded need to redistrict schools has been done.

    Though not etched in stone, the committee set forth some changes that won’t be altered by a simple plea from the public.

    On Tuesday, Aug. 18, a public hearing will be held at the central office. This will be a time when your voice can be heard.

  • Where did fun, sportsmanship go?

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Years ago when my uncle died his tombstone included the likeness of a basketball goal and a ball with the University of Kentucky logo on it.

    These days I wish their places were reversed: Uncle John here and local college basketball put to rest.

    I grew up in this area and have always been a basketball fan. I used to play it. I keep the March Madness grids each year.

    Now I think I’ve actually had enough.

    I followed all three of the area’s major schools: Kentucky, Louisville and Indiana. I’ve always rooted for all three.
