Today's Opinions

  • Campaign launched against distracted driving

     In honor of National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) and law enforcement agencies are asking drivers to keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel as part of the U Drive. U Text. U Pay. campaign. 

  • Want to pay more taxes?

     What do you think of tax increases? Not inflationary increases but the kind of increase that is applied to fund pet projects, or worse, gross malpractice by leaders.

    Not good? OK, we agree.

    Government should be kept in check. That concept has no party. If you look real hard at what Frankfort is doing on the tax front, you will learn that in 2014 your government gave cities, counties, and most other taxing entities, a blank check. They took the ceiling off the insurance tax. The vote was almost unanimous.

  • Need some advice?

     I read with interest today about the Mayor and councils decision concerning the Shepherdsville Community Center. It saddens me that there cannot be any  better decisions made for the benefit of our community. 

    Perhaps at some point  everyone forgot that it is a “community” center and not just a building.  Sweat, hard work and private monies went into creating a place for everyone to utilize.

  • Fire safety while turkey hunting

     FRANKFORT - With the start of youth spring turkey hunting season less than a week away, the Kentucky Division of Forestry (KDF) is urging hunters carrying on the state's rich hunting traditions to be especially careful during Spring Forest Fire Season.

    KDF offers the following tips for a wildfire-safe hunting experience.

    · BE CAREFUL WITH ALL FIRES: Whether a campfire, gas lantern, cook stove, barbecue, etc., all can quickly start fires in dry forests.

  • 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!
