Today's Opinions

  • Thanks Sharon Kelty

     The Stepping into Freedom group would like to recognize Mrs. Sharon Kelty. Every Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Journey Church in Shepherdsville, Sharon teaches a faith-based 12-step group.

    She goes above and beyond to help us. She makes sure the group has everything we need and, if not, she points us in the right direction to get it.

    She also does church services every other Tuesday at the Bullitt County Jail for the female inmates.

    She always brings a smile and a great attitude wherever she goes. We are so incredibly grateful to her.

  • Shepherdsville Light Up Success

     Our second City Sponsored parade and display light up at City Hall is over  and again a huge success! 

    And again I need to thank a group of guys that if not for them it just wouldn’t be possible and that is our  Public Works Department (Tom LaFollette, John Bradley, Mark Branham, Josh Edwards, Mike Leslie, Pete Plush, Christian Ramsey and Scotty Smothers) and our Sewer Department (Scott Fleming, Rocky Price, Jeremy Keith and Pat Welsh). 

  • Positives in school system

     I want to write this letter that seems to be positive about our Bullitt County Public Schools.

    At the end of September, I lost my wife to stage 4 breast cancer. My son attends North Bullitt High School. The day of the funeral I was set back and could not believe my eyes. The principal had let his baseball team and friends sign out to attend the funeral. The coaches and some of the parents also attended.

    In all my years of hearing negativity about our schools, that to see all these people as a family come to pay their respects was amazing.

  • Greatest Community
  • Saying Goodbye

     Benny Stillwell served a number of years as police chief for the city of Shepherdsville.

    During most of my tenure, Benny spent in the city’s public works department.

    A good person who always seemed to help out all the city’s departments no matter the need.

    He will be missed.

    When I saw the docket for the Bullitt County Board of Adjustments meeting and there was an application for a variance for a high-rise sign, I always thought of Morris Longacre.

    The passing of Morris is a bit more personal.

  • Time for prayer

     First of all I was a sinner, saved by the grace of God just as you were.

    Second, I am a disabled veteran of World War II and proud of it. I have been in church as long as I can remember. I can see a drastic change in our society and the church today.

    At one time, our nation wasknown as a Christian nation. Not today.

    And the church today is filled with so much rock throwing back and forth and gossip. This is sin within itself and yet there are some who act so holy holy and they are the ones who are throwing the rocks and gossip.

  • Brooks PTA

     The Brooks PTA would like to thank the following companies for their donation to our Fall Festival. Because of their generosity we had a very successful event.

  • Fellowship of Concern

     As current president of The Fellowship of Concern, “Thank You” for your coverage of Community Thanksgiving Service held at First Baptist Church in Shepherdsville the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving.

    After reading the article, I do want to clarify, a bit, about the Fellowship. Mentioned, were several churches represented in the leadership of the Worship Service. I want to give recognition and thanks to all the churches and the Community at large that support the Fellowship of Concern.
