• Vote David Strange

     Recently, I read a letter from a candidate that highly impressed me. David Strange is running as an independent for the Fourth District Magistrate seat. 

    This is the most honest, heartfelt letter from a candidate that I have seen (located on Strange’s Facebook page). 

    He has long been our “unofficial” county historian and has a wealth of knowledge about the county and provided community service for years. He is a long-time county resident of over 40 years, yet is not part of any “good old boy” network.

  • Scottish Rite thanks

     The Bullitt County Scottish Rite Club wishes to thank the people of our Bullitt County community for your support, generous contributions and donations made to the 2018 Bullitt County Scottish Rite annual Road Rally/Fun Run.

  • Thanks to Class of 1968

     Thanks to the Shepherdsville High School Class of 1968 for the wonderful card you sent me with signatures of those attending your 50th class reunion and my picture.

  • Vote for Higgins

     I would like to offer my endorsement of Mike Higgins for the Third District Magistrate.

    He is a 41-year resident of Bullitt County and  has been a very involved part of our community after retiring from a machinist career.

    His committment to the working class deserves our support.

  • Elect Sholar

     It has been my honor to know and work with Walt Sholar for more than eight years and there is no question that he will make an exceptionally well-qualified sheriff.

    When I first met him, Walt was serving as county attorney but was seeking a way to directly support the men and women of our armed forces who were being sent to Iraq and Afghanistan. Without compensation and at his own expence, he took vacation time to h elp provide firearms and tactics training to thousands of the Kentucky National Guard and in so doing helped to save lives.

  • Reading is Important

     Mark Twain said, “A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who  can’t read.” 

    Reading is the one activity that is beneficial for everyone.  Reading provides ideas for self-improvement, creativity, and high-level  thinking. Reading is the most important of academic skills because it is the  method through which all content is learned, and more importantly, it is the  skill that fosters success.

    As a teacher at Bullitt Lick, I am concerned about our students reading achievement. 

  • Thanks from HOPE

     We would like to thank everyone that made it possible to help send nine girls and one young man to the Bullitt Central prom.

    This was our second year and again it was a huge success, with the help of so many people.

    First, we want to thank Lindsey Bowles, Chrissy Mobley and Sara Huffman for doing the girls’ hair.

    Thanks to Katie Scott and Shaunna Cox for doing their makeup.

    Thanks to Christy Hardin of Bullitt Central, Stacey Cline and Bonnie Enlow for supplying the food.

    Thanks to Gary Gibson for the flowers.

  • Pay the teachers

     It’s not big secret that our nation lags behind others in educating our youth. While this is sad, it’s not surprising, watching our politicians hack away at programs and policies that are an integral part of producing successful adults.

    Education should never be a line item on the budget marked out. We should properly fund our schools and ensure that those who are directly responsible for educating our children are compensated fairly and promises upheld.

  • Pension bill was flushed

     The only honest and appropriate thing about the way our legislature “passed” the Kentucky teachers pension cut was flushing it through on the bottom of a wastewater bill.

    I was sorry to see Bullitt County Representative Russell Webber and State Senator Dan Seum helped operate the commode.

  • Thank you emergency workers

     Thank you, Emergency Workers, for all you have been doing during the awful, flooding weather.

    Bonnie and I went to a funeral service late Saturday evening on Feb. 24 for a very good man who deserved the attendance.  Several times along the stormy roads I saw wrecks, overflowing streams, and cars in ditches.

    And at each place I saw blue flashing lights in the darkness, and brave men and women enduring the rain and cold to help those in need.
