  • Team effort paves road to state approval

     As Bullitt County receives over $123 million in road project funding in the next six years, including the $25 million in federal revenue for the new I-65 interchange between Highway 480 and Highway 245, it is time to thank all of those who were involved in the long, hard, and complicated process of obtaining that funding.

    I want to thank my House counterparts, Representatives Russell Webber, James Tipton, and Linda Belcher for their hard work, but there are others who should be equally praised for their dedication.

  • Smoking becomes moving violation if kids in vehicle

     Maybe it is more symbolic than anything.

    The Shepherdsville City Council recently voted to have an ordinance which prohibits smoking inside a vehicle where there are infants around.

    In reality, the “infant” definition means anyone under the age of 18.

    There were comments pro and con.

    It was mainly the health vs. civil liberties conversation.

    Some did not like the idea of having the right to fine someone for smoking with children in the vehicle.

  • Redistricting will not just go away

     When is a public hearing not a public hearing?

    When the decision was made prior to listening to the public.

    However, it all works out pretty well when the decision reached is what the public wanted to begin with.

    OK, do I know that the Bullitt County Public School Board was against the proposal to redistrict due to overcrowding issues?

    Do I have a pretty good feeling that the consensus prior to the public hearing was to not take any action?

    Yes.

  • Travel safe with pets on Memorial Day weekend

     LOUISVILLE - More than 38 million Americans are expected to travel this Memorial Day weekend, and many will bring their pets along with them. If you’re planning to hit the road with your furry friend, doctors from BluePearl Veterinary Partners are offering tips for keeping your pet safe during the journey.

    One of the most important things to remember is to never leave pets unattended in a car, even with the windows cracked. If it’s 85 degrees outside, the temperature inside a car can rocket to 120 degrees in a matter of minutes.

  • Start planning for retirement now

     FRANKFORT -- Retirement may be the farthest thing from your mind when you're still in school, but now is the time to start thinking about it. In fact, the farther away it is, the better off you may be, according to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

    For decades, U.S. citizens have depended on Social Security for much of their retirement income. However, Social Security benefits for younger workers are not guaranteed.

  • Thanks from Roby

     We want to give a special thanks to all the businesses that donated to the Roby Elementary Spring Auction:

  • Thank you, Mr. Schultz

     Fifteen years ago, educator Greg Schultz interviewed for the principalship at North Bullitt High School.

    The search committee, which had passed on the first group of candidates, some fairly impressive, were impressed from the start by Mr. Schultz.

    The committee made the decision to hire him because of the energy he brought to the interview.

    He has contributed to the shaping of Bullitt County minds ever since.

  • Good things in Hillview

     This is in response to an article in The Pioneer News on April 27, 2016, regarding the Hillview lawsuit.

    I have lived in Hillview for over 20 years. I don’t agree with what has happened but I totally disagree with the comments that were presented by the resident in the council meeting.

    Hillview Police Department has done more in recent years than they have in the past and our services are even better.
