Today's Opinions

  • It’s Fair Time

     It is midway through the Bullitt County Fair but there is plenty of time to go out and enjoy the many sights and sounds.

    The annual fair, which is operated and run by a totally volunteer board, runs through Saturday evening.

    This year, visitors will see some improvements to the facility, especially those watching the various pageants under the pavilion.

    When your major revenue generator is subject to the wishes of Mother Nature, it is difficult to predict the success of your county fair.

  • Who would have murdered George Tanner?

     George Tanner was born 1879 in Hardin County, Kentucky.  His father and mother were John Tanner and Henrietta Graham.  Henrietta was born in 1838 in South Carolina. She was the daughter of Henry Graham and Elizabeth Johnson.  

    Henrietta’s family moved to Kentucky around 1845. 

  • Get involved in your communities this year

     Across the Bluegrass, Kentuckians celebrated the Memorial Day weekend. 

    As family and friends gathered, it is imperative to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice protecting our country. 

    The brave men and women who fought and died, defending the freedom we covet as Americans, deserve our respect and gratitude. 

    Collectively, I am sure we all paid tribute and celebrated the true meaning of the upcoming holiday. 

  • NATIONAL PREVENTION WEEK

     For National Prevention Week, the member of Bullitt County’s drug-free coalition were challenged to write letters to their future selves about what they’re doing today to ensure a healthier tomorrow.

    Dear Future Me,

    *Remember that every choice you make not only affects yourself, but it could be a ripple effect for everyone else. –Sarah Smith

    *Always remember that you are a living example that will either empower or discourage others! –Jonna Naylor

  • Waffle fries good; waffle decisions not

     Elective officials are often caught off guard. Someone will sign up to speak.

    Elective officials by nature want to please the public.

    But, sometimes, they make decisions quickly without fully thinking about all sides of an issue.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court was the most recent example as the members voted three  times on the issue of medical marijuana.

    The pro-medical marijuana troops won the best of three series 2-1.

  • PLEASE VOTE

     It is your right that should not be taken for granted.

    It is your duty to express your view on who your future leaders should be.

    It is not your right to complain if you are not part of the system.

    Next Tuesday, Bullitt Countians will be encouraged to go out to the polls and vote in the May 22 primary.

    Some of the winners will not face opposition in the fall. Others will.

    For a countywide race, there is little chatter.

    We hope that doesn’t mean that a majority of you plan to sit at home next Tuesday.

  • Three items dominate past session

     FRANKFORT -- When historians look back on the 2018 legislative session, most of their attention will understandably be focused on three things: the state’s budget, the corresponding tax plan and public-pension reform.

    They didn’t generate every headline, but there’s no doubt they accounted for most.

  • Our Goodbyes

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A few goodbyes to some people I knew and a few I didn’t.

    Delores Crenshaw Mudd recently passed away.

    She was a giant in the homemakers world in Bullitt County. She was also a longtime teacher in Bullitt County.

    She was also part of the Bullitt County Fair for many years. This year’s fair will be dedicated to her efforts.

    A good person who was involved in so many activities from education to extension.

    She touched many lives.

    A person I didn’t know who watched from afar.
