  • Thanks to Walt Sholar

     The Bullitt County Ministerial Association would like to thank Walt Sholar.

    Due to increasing violence directed toward churches, Walt recently taught a class on church security.

    He was assisted by Jim Higginbotham, a retired law enforcement officer and weapons trainer.

    Walt developed the curriculum, coordinated the classroom training and supervised training on the shooting range.

  • Nelson for state treasurer

     Rick Nelson is running for state treasurer. I have had the pleasure of working with him for the last six years as a fellow legislator. He is a retired educator who has spent his life serving the people of Kentucky.

    He works hard and is a good, honest man.

    I am asking that you consider voting for Rick Nelson for state treasurer when you go vote in November.

  • Vote Conway, Overly

     Good, quality programs have a positive impact on young learners, not only cognitively but long-term socially, emotionally and behaviorally.

    Please vote for the candidates who care about the children of Kentucky and support early childhood education -- Jack Conway and Sannie Overly.

  • Pavilion moving forward

     The Mount Washington City Council and its mayor have been discussing, for some time, the need for a community center; a pavilion-type building, that would provide shelter for community events, a civic club fish fry, a place that our farmers market can call home and even a music festival on occasion.

    We already have a small city park, with the city fountain on that property, in the center of town. We needed a place to locate the new city pavilion, but certainly had no place available without spending a lot of city funds for the property.

  • Thanks from HOPE

     HOPE would like to take this opportunity to thank the following for their help and support:

  • Thanks for support

     On behalf of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, we would like to say “thank you” to all who supported the DARE chili supper.

    You may have made a donation to the raffle or given a monetary donation or just came and ate.

    Your generosity was greatly appreciated.

    We would also like to thank First Baptist Church of Shepherdsville for the use of their fellowship hall; the Bullitt County Woman’s Club; and employees of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office.

  • Several need to go

     While mayor Ellis is waiting to resign, I would also like to request the resignation of Gloria Taft and Dana James.

    Their place on the council is detrimental to the city and its citizens. And, by the way, I hear McDonalds is hiring. 

    Surely they could do a good job there. I know a lot of people who would be glad to give them references.
