Today's Opinions

  • 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. 

  • Old Business

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Today starts an occasional column that I’ve called OLD BUSINESS.

    Why?

    Because we seem to forget as elected officials things that we’ve talked about. In other words, I’ll keep certain topics on the list until something is done.

    In the inaugural list, what about:

    *The city of Shepherdsville has a garbage contract. In that contract there is some contention that the city is responsible when Eco-Tech is unable to collect the bills.

  • Thank you Shepherdsville

     At this writing, my term on the Shepherdsville City Council ends in twelve days. I am very thankful to the wonderful people of Shepherdsville for allowing me to work on their behalf the last six years. It has been an honor and privilege to represent you in city government. The confidence and trust “you the people” have given me is deeply appreciated and valued. My sincere thanks to all of you.

  • Thanks Sharon Kelty

     The Stepping into Freedom group would like to recognize Mrs. Sharon Kelty. Every Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Journey Church in Shepherdsville, Sharon teaches a faith-based 12-step group.

    She goes above and beyond to help us. She makes sure the group has everything we need and, if not, she points us in the right direction to get it.

    She also does church services every other Tuesday at the Bullitt County Jail for the female inmates.

    She always brings a smile and a great attitude wherever she goes. We are so incredibly grateful to her.

  • Bullitt Countians show their caring acts during 2016

     Bullitt County is a caring community.

    Look past the negative. This community will always rise to the top when the need is there.

    During the past month, you’ve seen numerous stories and pictures about the generosity of this community. Young and old, the community has come forward to provide some of our less fortunate a brighter Christmas celebration.

    None of the donors are seeking praise or recognition. They are doing it because they want to.

  • Mary Trunnell had very exciting life

     Mary Elizabeth Trunnell was born in 1849 in Bullitt County, Kentucky. 

    She was the daughter of Henry Trunnell and Mary Jane Field Bowman.  Her father Henry Trunnell was born in 1817 in Montgomery County, Maryland.  He married in 1838 to his first wife Louisa Grable.  

    They had a son who was Phillip G. Trunnell.  Louisa divorced Henry in 1848 and remarried her neighbor leaving their son to be raised by their father.

  • Shepherdsville Light Up Success

     Our second City Sponsored parade and display light up at City Hall is over  and again a huge success! 

    And again I need to thank a group of guys that if not for them it just wouldn’t be possible and that is our  Public Works Department (Tom LaFollette, John Bradley, Mark Branham, Josh Edwards, Mike Leslie, Pete Plush, Christian Ramsey and Scotty Smothers) and our Sewer Department (Scott Fleming, Rocky Price, Jeremy Keith and Pat Welsh).
