Today's Opinions

  • Vote for Higgins

     I commend the voters for recognizing the need to make changes to Fiscal Court and would highly recommend Mike Higgins for Third District magistrate.

    Mike would be a great addition to our fiscal court. Mike is someone with a vision for Bullitt County, passionate, caring, interested in improving Bullitt County and moving it forward.

    The citizens deserve officials that want to help everyone and do what is best for the whole county. Mike Higgins will be a magistrate that will listen, have an opinion, make a decision and not hold back progress.

  • Vote for Wooldridge

     I take great pleasure in endorsing John Wooldridge for county attorney in the upcoming election.

    John has served with distinction as assistant commonwealth attorney, master commissioner of the Bullitt Circuit Court and commonwealth attorney for Bullitt County.

    Former Circuit Judge Athol Lee Taylor and I employed John to work in our law firm. I found John to be a tireless worker with a fine legal mind. I am convinced that if given the opportunity to serve as county attorney, John will make the citizens of Bullitt County proud.

  • Vote for Rayhill

     Vote for Joe Rayhill for Fourth District magistrate.

    Joe is an honest, motivated and determined life-long resident of the Fourth District.

    He will work hard to do the right thing for his hometown.

    Joe is extremely easy to talk to and genuinely cares about doing what’s right. Joe Rayhill is a faithful man of God, loving man of family and strong man of community who I trust to be my Fourth District magistrate.

    He is an encourager, listener and all-around good man ready to serve the community he loves so much.

  • 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.
