    NICHOLS – In the first month of the Trump administration, two factions have had issues with the new commander-in-chief… issues that could lead to the end of Bullitt County and perhaps the entire world.

  • Shepherdsville Lions looking for members to join organization

        The Shepherdsville Lions Club has been serving our community since 1945.  That’s a seventy-two-year tradition of civic volunteerism.  Unfortunately, like many public service organizations in this day, the Shepherdsville Lions Club is now struggling to survive.  After 72 years, the club needs your help, your active membership, if it is to continue.

  • Thanks June

     I would like to publicly express my gratitude to June Daugherty, director of the Bullitt County YMCA, upon her recent retirement. 

    June has been an avid advocate for our community as she grew the YMCA into what it has become today. 

    Over the course of her career, June has acted as a teacher, fund-raiser, promoter and manager of the YMCA’s programs, assets and personnel while maintaining the organization’s Christian emphasis. 

  • 2016 was another busy year

     Another year has come and gone.  They say time flies when you are having fun!  I don’t know about having fun but the clerks certainly have been busy this past year.

    The state continues to make changes to its computerized accounts receivable program.  

    Unfortunately, we are still required to run both the manual and computerized accounts receivable programs because the computerized program is still not capable of generating all of the needed reports. 

  • Positive work done in first week by the legislators

     FRANKFORT — For the first time since 1921, Republicans took control of the Kentucky House of Representatives, making our first week back to Frankfort a historic one. 

    We have been hard at work doing exactly what the voters of Kentucky sent us to Frankfort to accomplish. 

    The result of this was an extremely productive first week of the 2017 session, in which priority bills to improve the economy, protect life, and make government more accountable passed through the General Assembly. 

  • Recognize School Board

     Our community is blessed. We have a successful public school system with incredibly engaged students in grades K through 12 and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.

    A vital component of the progress of our district – and thus our community – is the leadership provided by the members who make up the Bullitt County Board of Education.
