• Should help kids

     I cannot believe that the Bullitt County School System has employed resource officers who are unwilling to take the time or energy during the holiday season to simply compile a list of the less fortunate children within their assigned schools. The families in need at some of our county’s schools are told to go to the Salvation Army for help.

    I don’t believe that is an acceptable answer when our county has both citizens and businesses that are willing to support these children and their siblings to ensure that each family has a good Christmas morning.

  • School taxes too much

     Bullitt Country taxpayers should take note.  The School Board has again raised your property taxes.  They try to imply that taxes went up $22.00, when in fact your taxes have increased much more.  Thanks to three School Board members, Lorraine McLaughlin, Dolores Ashby, and Board Chairman, Tim Wiseheart, your property taxes have increased for the SIXTH year in a row.

  • No guns for high risk

     Nine American women are shot and killed by their husbands and intimate partners every single week. The victims are mothers, sisters, daughters, friends – each an irreplaceable loss to their families and our society. Tragically, our lax gun laws make it easier for abusers to acquire a firearm than it is to purchase a Sudafed. Legislators who don’t support expanded background checks and other common-sense gun reforms are co9mplicit in this bloodshed and moms need to call them out.

  • Thanks to Arts Council

     The Woman’s Club would like to thank the Bullitt County Art Council for their participation in the Fall Conference.

    Their wonderful displays on the tables and throughout the room were beautiful.  A special thanks to Donna burke and Judy Nevitt for their singing performance, as well as Jacob Head with the Compass Quarter, for his solos on the Violin. Their performances were inspiring up lifting.

  • Thanks for watching our tax dollars

     I would like to take a moment to thank our county magistrates for their effort to make sure that the county’s money is being spent properly and that our county departments are run as they should be. I would like to say a special thank you to Magistrate John Bradshaw for asking the hard questions even though it’s not the popular thing to do.

  • Young people do good work

     I wanted to write this letter to acknowledge how good some of our young people are. I have been working with Future Farmers of America (FFA) program at Bullitt Central High School as a volunteer.

  • Clean up eyesores

     Mount Washington Councilmen – Pertaining to our City “eyesores!”

  • Signs, recycling good

     I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Bullitt County Works Department and others for the new blue, large print street signs, they are so much easier to read.

    Also, a reminder Bullitt County has a very clean, neat Recycling Center. Located off Highway 61 at 480 in back and side of Bullitt County Detention Center. The hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed on Mondays) Tuesday through Saturday.

  • Thanks from Children in Flight

     The 5th annual Children in Flight Justin Brandon Mahaffey Golf Outing held on September 28th, was a huge success. We were able to raise $3,800 to go toward our scholarships that will be given for the 2014 school year at Bullitt Central High School.

    Thank you for the support from our players and sponsors for making this year a success. We appreciate your dedication in supporting education for students in our community. We would like to thank the following for their sponsorships and donations.

  • Keep grass laws intact

     My understanding is local attorney Eric Farris has taken steps to encourage the Hillview City Council to amend it’s ordinances to no longer require owners of industrial or commercial property to maintain their properties so vegetation would not be over twelve inches high.
