Today's Opinions

  • Vote or Belcher

     It is very simple….Bullitt County needs Linda Belcher back in Frankfort.

    I know Linda very well and know what an honest, caring person she is.

    She has always lived and worked in Bullitt County. Bullitt County is where her heart is. We are currently serving together on the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education board. She is so passionate about our children and our fundraising efforts to provide grant money to teachers.

  • If we had known earlier

     So flood maps were turned over in 2011 and updated against in October of 2013 to Bullitt County/City officials, showing the new FEMA flood maps.

    Those same individuals expect us to vote them into office again. Please know who you are voting for when you go to the polls. 

    We just bought a house in July 2013. If we had been aware of these flood maps, we would not have bought our current house.

  • Grading is complicated

     The lasted round of assessment results have been reported.

    They are publicly available on the Kentucky Department of Education website and you can look at overall district scores as well as those of individual schools.

    You can look at data collected on students’ performance in all core curriculum areas.

    You can find program reviews related to writing, arts and humanities, practical living and career studies, and the primary program. 

  • Precautions needed when taking kids out for annual Trick or Treat adventures

     It is fast approaching the fun filled night of Halloween; the Shepherdsville Police Department wants to share with you some important tips to keep you and your family safe.  

    If your child is participating in a traditional “trick or treat” evening, always make sure you walk on the sidewalks and cross the street at the intersections.  

    Make sure an adult is with your child as they make their way through the neighborhood. 

    Another thing to take in consideration is the costume that your child wears. 

  • A little spooky script for your Halloween season

     These days every time something takes place it is immediately shared throughout the world at such a frenzy that people freak out.

    Topics such as ISIS or ebola put society in an immediate state of shock, worry and panic.

    As a change of pace, it’s time to get back to simpler times. I have again searched around locally for good old-fashioned ideas to use as topics for scary Halloween movies.

    And without further adieu, here’s this year’s list, presented as always in B-movie promo fashion, of Halloween movie ideas.

  • Drivers BEWARE: Trick-or-Treaters may be nearby

     Local drivers beware! Ghosts and goblins may invade your driving space in search of their favorite treat and to play a trick or two. AAA reminds drivers to adjust their driving to accommodate these “spooktacular” creatures.

  • Fall breeding season increases deer movement

     FRANKFORT - Cooler temperatures and shorter days bring out the fall colors that paint Kentucky’s landscape in warm hues before winter arrives.

    At about the same time, the breeding instinct in whitetail deer stirs, putting them on the move and more frequently into the paths of motorists.

    About half of all collisions between vehicles and deer in Kentucky occur over the last three months of the calendar year, according to statistics compiled by Kentucky State Police. More of these collisions are reported in November than in any other month.

  • Vote for Higgins

     I wish to let the citizens of the north end know that Mike Higgins has been an active volunteer in this community and has kept abreast of the needs and possibilities of our county.

    He would not have stood idly by and watched the opportunity of gaining 1,500 jobs go some place else.

    That is why I support Mike Higgins for magistrate
