Today's Opinions

  • Put gaming on ballot to let us decide on issue

     Our legislators are now in Frankfort. We  trust that they are there to help the constituents.

    We fear that since it is time to put a biennium budget together, it might be more gridlock than progress.

    Before that is decided, however, it might be the race to see what Constitutional amendments are placed on the ballot for consideration in the fall.

    Only two such measures can be on the ballot but several have already been mentioned in the first couple of weeks.

  • Bill filed to allow you to decide on felon voting rights

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (January 17, 2014) – The first full week of the 2014 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly is in the book, and while we await the start of debate and discussion on the top issue facing us, drafting a new budget, several bills began being heard in committees.

  • Shepherdsville Operation Santa

     Shepherdsville Operation Santa had another successful year and served over 150 families in Shepherdsville and Bullitt County. I would like to thank the people who helped make this year a success.

  • Lincoln Trail thanks MUW

     As we enter a new year and reflect upon the successes of 2013, I want to take this opportunity to thank and recognize the very generous supporters of Lincoln Trail Behavioral Health System and United Way of Central Kentucky.

  • Thanks from AARP

     Mount Washington AARP just celebrated its greatest year of community service with donations to charities that help seniors, veterans, children, and those in need. Members from Fern Creek, Taylorsville, Shepherdsville, and Okolona met with us and multiplied our effect with thousands of volunteer hours spent collecting goods and cash. Businesses all over north Bullitt County Jefferson County provided gifts to help with fundraising.

  • Thanks PBI, community

     Through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, many people offer generous hearts to help those that are less fortunate. It’s a time to bless others and a time to reflect on just how blessed we all are.

    This year A New Hope Pregnancy Resource Center was blessed to receive donations collected by PBI Bank located at 340 S. Buckman St. in Shepherdsville and their patrons. We received a cash donation along with a diaper bag, baby clothing, diapers and several other infant necessities.

  • Smoking ban for All

     I am a resident of Bullitt County and would like to explain my reasons for urging our Fiscal Court to either drop sections 2 and 4 from the proposed Smoking Ordinance 13-32 or vote it down all together.  

  • Community has chance to make suggestions on land-use plan

     At crunch time, there are plenty of comments and suggestions being offered on the proposed land-use plan for Bullitt County.

    This is not unexpected.

    The public has until Jan. 31 to submit suggestions to the plans devised by consultant Kriss Lowry. Those must be turned into the Bullitt County Planning office in the courthouse annex.

    A public meeting will be held on Feb. 20 for anyone wishing to make comments.
