  • Thanks from HOPE

     HOPE would like to take this opportunity to thank the following for their help and support:

  • Thanks for support

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

    You may have made a donation to the raffle or given a monetary donation or just came and ate.

    Your generosity was greatly appreciated.

    We would also like to thank First Baptist Church of Shepherdsville for the use of their fellowship hall; the Bullitt County Woman’s Club; and employees of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office.

  • Several need to go

     While mayor Ellis is waiting to resign, I would also like to request the resignation of Gloria Taft and Dana James.

    Their place on the council is detrimental to the city and its citizens. And, by the way, I hear McDonalds is hiring. 

    Surely they could do a good job there. I know a lot of people who would be glad to give them references.

     September was prostate cancer awareness month, and for a man being aware of prostate cancer means knowing your PSA level.

  • BBB Hot Topics: September 2015

    1.    Beware of Ashley Madison-related phishing scams. The most recent offers a link to the "Ashley Madison Client List," but instead infects the user’s computer with banking malware, or locks up files until the user pays the scammer “to get it fixed.”

  • Outlook points to another productive deer season

     FRANKFORT – Kentucky receives national acclaim for the quality of its deer herd, and the numbers help draw the attention.

    The state has produced hundreds of trophy-class bucks over the past five seasons and hunters last season combined to take 138,899 deer overall. It was the second highest harvest total on record behind only the 2013-14 season.

  • It Happened in August

     We will look back 25, 50, 75, and 99 years to capture glimpses of what was happening in Bullitt County in each of these years. Today we will focus on the month of August.


    1990 - 25 Years Ago.

    I wonder if Julie Wilkins remembers getting her picture taken while she washed cars during the Bullitt Central Football Boosters car wash?

  • Thanks Linda for road project

     I want to acknowledge and personally thank Linda Belcher for her positive actions in making sure the section of road on North Preston Highway between John Harper and Bells Mill Roa can/will be repaired and reopened as quickly as possible.

    I am confident that without her efforts/attention the process for this to occur could have potentially never occurred.

    Thanks Linda and keep working for our county as I know you will. I am sure I speak, too, for the many businesses located in the area.
