  • Pay the public servants

     We are daily reminded when watching or reading the news in our area about the perennial county budget deficiencies, both in Jefferson and our county. The latest deficiency is being voiced by our fiscal court: a much needed salary for all of our public servants. The question we should all be asking is, “ What is the right thing to do for these hard-working, brave people who make our lives better and save lives each day?”

  • Pay your taxes Mr. President
  • Did anyone bite you at work today?

      On average, nearly 15 mail carriers per day will say, “Yes.”

    Postal Service officials report that in 2018, 5,714 letter carriers experienced dog bites or dog attacks. With deliveries everyday, including Sundays and holidays, carriers continue to experience dog bites in urban, suburban and rural settings.

    Dog attacks and bites are 100 percent preventable when dog owners remain vigilant and properly restrain their dogs.

  • Thank you from Myra and Mike

     I don’t know where to begin but to humbly say thank you. I was overwhelmed with the amount of support the night of the benefit on March 15. 

    This outpouring of love is why I love this community. The estimate was that over 600 people joined together that night to show me that they are in this fight with me. 

  • Thanks to PGES

     Thank you Pleasant Grove Elementary students and staff for the generous donations to our residents at Green Meadows Health Care.

    We appreciate all the donations and everyone who donated.

  • Vote no on bills

     I urge Rep. Webber and Senator Seum vote against house bill 205, senate bill 250, and house bill 525. I urge them to stop doing things that only benefit them and their pockets.

    They need to do what is right for the children of Kentucky. We are already one of the lowest ranked states when it comes to education. Taking away funds from the schools will only make it worse. They were voted into office to be a voice for those who can’t be heard. Instead they only do what they want, without regard for the well being of others. 

  • Impressed with Summers

     Mr. Jerry Summers has been in office for 60 days now. I’ve been to 2 meetings with him at the helm and on March 9, he and staff hosted a State of the County.

    I am very impressed with what he has done since taken office but I am as shocked on how the County was left. Jerry and crew walked into a tornado. Items that should have been taken care of wasn’t but with him he hasn’t complained but taken each task trying to get it corrected. 

    Thank you Jerry Summers for keeping your word.

  • The teachers ARE teaching

     I won’t join the commentators and others who condemn our teachers for leaving class to push back against Frankfort.

    Educators have to appear in numbers as lawmakers are making major decisions about them and their students. 

    Some proposals appeared that would reduce teacher participation in state work on education between sessions and they must assure themselves a place at the table when school matters are discussed. 

    The politicians who scolded them forgot that they work in the “people’s house”. 

  • Salute your school board

     The only time many people pay attention to their local school board is when there’s a tax vote, but school board members do much more than just setting tax rates. 

    Bullitt County school board members, elected by the people, are responsible for our community’s most precious resource and the key to its future – our children and their educational opportunities.
