Today's Opinions

  • Good or bad, things sure did happen fast in legislature

     Whether the bills approved on Saturday in Frankfort were good or bad, they sure happened fast.

    Kind of like showing you that you can do something and there isn’t anything you can do about it.

    But, with the majority, couldn’t you take your time and still get the same result in a few weeks?

    Maybe the folks on the other side of the aisle did the same thing for 100 years. Maybe we just didn’t know the speed in which very important pieces of legislation was passed.

  • Coming Soon -- Talks on Charter Schools

     Charter schools.  

    We have all heard the statistics and the arguments.  Forty-three states have approved charter schools in one form or another.

    I have written about charters in this space before and my position is and has always been that I am not in favor of any particular organizational structure to educate kids; I am in favor of educating our kids, period.  

    Now that no legislative barrier blocks the passage of a charter school law, our attention needs to turn to the particulars. 

  • Sanitation rates are OK

     On the subjects of the Sanitation District rate increase: If you were like me -- paying for this service in both Bullitt County and Jefferson -- you would gladly accept this modest bill and thank the volunteers that ride herd on Bullitt County’s struggling agency that takes your waste.

    My Jefferson County bill is twice that one in Bullitt County. 

    Either this county can stop issuing building permits, which includes those that bring jobs, or we can fund this agency sufficient personnel.

  • Homelessness

     Say you care about the homelessness, really?….Really? “Room In The Inn” B.C. has come to the aid of 215 family units in the last 23 months and around Bullitt County!

    Why wait months or years to make a difference? Drivers, laundry help, mentors and meals are needed today! C’mon Christian, Matthew 25:34-40 is calling your name. 502-714-3742, heartofmycity@gmail.com. 

    Be apart of the miracles!

  • Endangered Species Act

     The Endangered Species Act is supported by 90% of Americans, and has had remarkable success in bringing back manatees, bald eagles, and wolves and money more from extinction.

  • Room in the Inn

     Congratulations to the new mayor and new city council in Shepherdsville.

    The year 2017 will be a great one for the city of Shepherdsville. Heart of My City volunteers (providing family and individual shelter for the homeless/displaced with short-term stabilization through our Room in the Inn program) hope the new leadership will cut through the bureaucratic red (or blue) tape to grant limited use of the Shepherdsville Community Center as a transitional location in the early morning hours while our vans transport guests to work and/or school.

  • Seum applauded for work

     The Kentucky Chamber applauds Senate Majority Caucus Chair Dan Seum on his leadership to make right-to-work legislation a reality during the first week of the 2017 General Assembly, ensuring Kentucky is a state where businesses want to locate.

  • Thanks from family

     The family of William L. (Billy) Dezern would like to thank the Hillview community, our family and friends for their support through our loss of Billy.

    We received an abundance of prayers, lov and help.

    Thanks to Lee Basham (Go Fund Me), T-shirt donations by Stacy Johnston and Joe Bohannon; and all the contributions that assisted us through the most difficult times in our lives.
