Today's Opinions

  • Vote for Higgins

     I wish to let the citizens of the north end know that Mike Higgins has been an active volunteer in this community and has kept abreast of the needs and possibilities of our county.

    He would not have stood idly by and watched the opportunity of gaining 1,500 jobs go some place else.

    That is why I support Mike Higgins for magistrate

  • Vote for Nemes

     Before you cast your vote for District 49 House of Representative, I wanted you to know a little of the Mike Nemes I know.

    My family has known Mike Nemes and his family for around 18 years, since our boys played recreational baseball together. That was really how we came to know Mike. He became our oldest son’s baseball coach for seven of those years.

    Through all of the travels, tournaments, practices, seasons, we got to know Mike Nemes and his family. What Iearned about Mike during that time was that he was a man who truly cared about people.

  • Support Linda Belcher

     I have known Linda Belcher for over 38 years. She and her late husband, Larry, were dedicated educators since 1970.

    She taught school, was an assistant principal and principal, and director of transportation in Bullitt County.

    Her service has always been in Bullitt County.

    Linda is a member of Little Flock Baptist Church and serves on the board for the Christian academy.

  • Chili supper thanks

     On behalf of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, we would like to say thank you to all who supported our DARE chili supper.

  • Tax not for kids

     I have received my property taxes for the year and the school tax part that I have to pay is ridiculous.

    The biggest portion is school tax. Even superintendent Keith Davis admits that the school system could function without the extra tax being applied. Yes, we are hurting out here with inflation, gas prices, utilities increasing and everyone is fighting to keep what they make in their pockets.

  • No more tax hikes

     In reference to your recent commentary concerning the approved school tax rate, I would like to make the following comments:

    The School Board Members are smart not to offer a vote on any tax increases. They know that it would not receive an acceptable voter response.

    Your commentary stated that the district would have an additional $1.3 million dollars to spend, of which $1.2 million would go to the Teacher Retirement System and also give a 2 percent salary increase for next year. 

  • Tax decision pretty typical of plight in today’s world

     If you ever wanted to be an elected official, put yourself in the place of members of the Bullitt County Public School Board.

    Personally, it was a simple decision. But I am biased.

    As board members listened and considered a tax increase that would have meant $24 a year on a $100,000 home, I listened to a voice.

    “Am I not worth 46 cents per week?”

    That came from a young lady who I am pretty fond of. It is my daughter.

  • Thank to Class of 1964

     I am writing to thank the 1964 Shepherdsville High School graduating class for their donations to the moving and restoring of the Bowman Valley School project.

    Please continue to support as we prepare to move the school by year’s end.

    Send tax deductible donations to Bowman Valley School Project, P.O. Box 1714, Shepherdsville, Ky., 40165.
