  • Get questions on fire district done, then move on

      The time has come to either extinguish the fire or to bring on the heat.

    For years, people have questioned the arrangement at Southeast Bullitt Fire and Rescue and its corporation. And, for years, the district continues to field  from the community.

    Now, questions railed by commissioner Dan Thibideaux made it to Bullitt Fiscal Court and then on the county’s You Tube account.

    The allegations, which have all been refuted by the district’s attorney, seem very serious.

  • Taking look back at elections; next cycle will come quickly

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Any illusions that President Barack Obama was going to be on the ballot in the November 2014 general election were wrong.

    In fact, the number of straight ticket voters grew on Tuesday when compared to mid-term elections four years ago.

    That did not bode well for local candidates who might have had a “D” behind their name.

    Of the 24,619 who cast ballots in Bullitt County, 8,764 darkened the straight-ticket box on the ballot.

  • Vote for Laswell

     As the mayor of the city of Hebron Estates, I would like to ask you to vote for Joe E. Laswell, Third District Magistrate.

    I am a lifelong Democrat, and yes, Joe is on the other side of the aisle. However, Joe Laswell has reached across that “political aisle” and worked with me.

    He provided me with his phone number, so if I ever have a question or needed his help, I could easily get in touch with him.

  • Boos uncalled for

     I had the pleasure of attending the forum the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce  organized Thursday evening. As a citizen and voter in the county, if I were to rate the event, I would give it 10 Plus stars from the greeting and the escort by the ROTC students to the excellent quality of food provided.

    I have attended events sponsored by the Filson Club that do not excel any better the our Chamber.

  • Vote for Rayhill

     I am writing a letter to show support for a candidate running for magistrate. Joe Rayhill is the best man for the job.

    He is hard working, honest, loyal and an enthusiastic person that will do everything in  his power to make sure that the job is done properly.

    I have known Joe for several years. He is strong in his Christian beliefs and exhibits family values that are second to none. He will work hard for the families of Bullitt County to ensure that the magistrate duties are completed properly, as well as in a timely fashion.
