  • Don’t be chicken to let your views be known

     For a couple months, residents in Mount Washington have been asking for a change to an existing ordinance that prohibits livestock within city limits, including chickens.

    Led largely by a resident who admitted to the council he has several chickens on his own land within the city, these residents have given fact after fact over why the council should permit chickens.

  • Election probably proves that people turned off by politics

      I love politics.

    I don’t love the nastiness that often appears during the election cycle.

    But the pure science or non-science of trying to predict races and then analyzing them is something I’ve always enjoyed.

    But it’s two months past the primary and four months until the general election and I didn’t write the first analysis of what happened in May.

    First, I think as journalist we have gotten into the practice of trying to be experts and to offer advise.

  • Traffic Jams

     Besides taxes, what is the most aggravating part of many peoples’ lives?

    Traffic congestion.

    As Bullitt County has grown and the number of people driving vehicles has mushroomed, the roads are just not adequate to handle the flow.

    This community is not the only one facing these issues. However, if you spend time trying to navigate from one area to another, you know it is bad.

    The simple Friday afternoon traffic delays on Highway 44 in Mount Washington and in Shepherdsville are now a daily occurrence.

  • Crystal Clear

     Maybe the biggest buzz word in government circles over the past few years is “transparency.”

    Everyone on the campaign trail talks about it.

    Those in office swear by it.

    The public drinks it down like a cold, icy cola on a hot summer day.

    In the media, we talk about transparency and how we are the champions.

    In reality, not the fake world where so many tend to spend their time, transparency is no more present today than it was 100 years ago.
