  • Pay attention to emergency sirens

      Hey Bullitt County drivers, let’s chat for a second.

    I know I’ve only had my driver’s license for less than 10 years and that there are far more experienced people than me on the roads. However, I’m convinced there must have been some miscommunication when I read my driver’s manual and took my test than when the rest of the county took theirs.

  • Childhood poverty is an issue

     As a school district and community, we believe that all children can learn. 

    As Americans, we stand for equality of opportunity - everyone should have access to the American Dream. 

    Sure, most of us realize that those with wealthy or connected families sometimes get breaks the rest of us don’t get, but that is the relative few.

    Work hard, study hard, make your own luck, take advantage of the blessings of being born in the USA.

  • Congrats to our kids

     Over the past couple of weeks, youngsters from Bullitt County have represented our community well.

    From Florida to Washington, athletes excelled.

    This is a great accomplishment for the girls, their coaches, the parents and grandparents and those who supported those efforts.

  • Linda a public servant

     Thank God that our folks who were not all happy with the outcome of the election did not react like many in nation by disrupting the lives of their fellow man by seizing the streets protesting. If life gives you a lemon, make lemonade, for 4 days and nights they have disrupted our nation apparently they never work or go to school to improve their lifestyle. Instead of being negative look at what they could have done for our nation, volunteering to clean up their neighborhoods.
