Today's Opinions

  • Consider the tax dollars
  • CASA needs volunteers

     If you have 3-4 hours per week and share our concern about abused and neglected children currently involved in the courts in Bullitt County, we would like to talk to you about being a new volunteer with the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) program. We currently have many more cases in the system than volunteers to cover them.

  • All students need programs

     Last week our Board of Education voted on and approved a new and amazing Math and Science program for middle school students. This program is called the Discovery school and allows our best of the best students from across our county to come together and dream of what can be at Hebron Middle School. For 108 young middle school students and their parents, this is an opportunity to excel. But what about all the other students in our schools?

  • Cost seems a little high

     I am writing this letter in regards to your story about the library Board buying the church and lot in Mount Washington for $400,000 and then paying approximately $150 more to have it torn down and then finding problems with asbestos and deciding to demolish the building.

    This is the same board that placed a cell phone tower on the end of the runway at Blue Lick Airport jeopardizing any future for the airport.

  • Need time to study decisions

     “The essential difference between EMOTION and REASON is that emotion leads to action and reason leads to conclusions.” Donald Calne

    When the ballots were tallied in November, 2012, the outcome showed the six Shepherdsville residents that had been trusted by their peers to represent them in making decisions regarding local legislation on their behalf. The three of us were fortunate enough to be among those six.

    Some of the decisions we are trusted to make are trivial in the grand scope of life, while others bear a much greater weight.

  • Brooks family one of county’s earliest settlers

      The Brooks family was a distinguished family in the history of Bullitt County.  The Brooks ancestors came from Ireland.  After 1690, some of the family immigrated to America.

    Joseph Brooks was born in 1755 in Chester, Pennsylvania.  Joseph had a twin brother who was David Brooks.  Joseph Brooks married Nancy Boice in Pennsylvania.  Nancy was born in Ireland and came to America when she was 21 years old.

  • Legislators pay tribute to fallen heroes

     One of the most moving and important services we conduct each year in the House of Representatives is the memorial ceremony to honor members of our armed forces who join more than 6,700 American men and women who have lost their lives in recent wars.

    We paid tribute to Army Sergeant Michael Cable and Staff Sergeant Daniel “Danny” Fannin, true Kentucky heroes who died defending our freedom.

  • KidsFest gives chance to have fun, forget about Mother Nature

     When the doors open to Paroquet Springs Conference Centre on Saturday morning, we hope that everyone can forget about the awful winter weather Bullitt County has suffered through.

    It will be time for the annual KidsFest celebration, a presentation of the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce.

    From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., there will be dozens of booths. There will be dozens of entertainment acts throughout the facility.

    There will be demonstration by emergency personnel, like the fire departments, police department and EMS.
