• 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. 

  • To our elected officials
  • Thank God

     Thank God.

    No really, Thank God. The fat lady said her piece and Thursday, a federal jury said what most of us knew, David Greenwell did nothing wrong.

    David knew it and trusted God to make it right but we have all seen juries sleep through the evidence and, wanting to get home for Matlock, send someone to prison for knowing someone or trusting someone.

    The one person with all the facts was the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky that went forward with this ham handed investigation turned trial.

  • Adoption awareness

     Every year since 1976, November has been national recognized as Adoption Awareness Month. Many families in Kentucky have already grown their families through adoption; however, Kentucky currently has many more children in foster care who need and deserve a Forever Family to call their own.

    Please take a moment and say a prayer for children who are still waiting for a family and for those who have opened their hearts and homes to parenting through adoption. If you are interested in adoption, step up and take steps to find out how to make it happen.

  • Thanks Pleasant Grove

     This evening as I write this letter, I am still shocked and surprised at what I saw and witnessed this day at your school (Pleasant Grove Elementary). The wonderful presentation given by your school, leadership, and students is a day that I will treasure and remember for the rest of my days! At age 76, this has been my BEST by far! 

  • Save the turkey

     While President Trump is pardoning two turkeys for Thanksgiving, every one of us can exercise that same presidential power by choosing a non-violent Thanksgiving observance.

    And here are some other good reasons:

    *You can brag about pardoning a turkey - like Trump (or not).

    *You will stay awake for your entire favorite football game.

    *Your sensible vegetarian kid won’t have to boycott the family dinner.

    *Plant-based holiday roasts don’t have to carry government warning labels.

  • Beyond the Pale

     I noticed the ad you had on page A-10 of your Nov. 5 edition that referred to Democrats as Satan’s voice. I believe that referring to either political party in this way is beyond the Pale. Please let me know if you are going to continue printing this type of ad and I will find another paper to read.

  • Congratulations

     Congratulations to Joe Rayhill for winning our race for the office of Bullitt County’s 4th District Magistrate.  I ran for the office as hard as I possibly could, but in the end a majority of voters elected to keep the incumbent.

    I am proud that many very good people worked for me and voted for me and encouraged me and I know will sympathize for me.  

    My dear friends, I thank you for all that.  God bless you.  Together we created new friendships and strengthened the old.

  • Thank You

  • Vote for Strange

     I have been very active in a Veterans organization in Lebanon Junction for several years. David Strange has always been a huge supporter of our veterans.

    Without David’s help, it would have been a problem having a lot of our programs over the years.

    David Strange would be a very good choice for Fourth District magistrate.
