  • Division of Fire Prevention reminds Kentuckians of fireworks safety

     FRANKFORT - The Kentucky Division of Fire Prevention encourages Kentuckians to attend community events instead of celebrating with fireworks at home during this year’s Independence Day festivities.

    “Let the professionals entertain your family,” said Mike Haney, state fire marshal and director of fire prevention for the Kentucky Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction. “By celebrating at a public event instead of at home, you reduce the risk of injury and property damage. You may also avoid violating the law.”

  • Daughter grows up so quickly

     It finally dawned on me. My little girl was growing up.

    It was on a Tuesday afternoon. It was election day and I was taking my daughter, Amanda Jean, to the polling place for the first time.

    She was already legal to drive. But now she was legal to allow her views to be expressed on a paper ballot.

    Not only was she able to vote but she was also quickly approaching graduation day.

    You ponder what your children might become. With Amanda, that future has definitely not been determined.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • No fees noble effort worth considering

     Maybe it was a final effort to make a difference.

    Superintendent Dr. Keith Davis recently proposed a “no fee” zone for elementary and middle school students.

    The idea was pretty simple -- students would not be required to go out and purchase school supplies for their elementary and middle school years.

    They would also not be subjected to any class fees -- with the exception of Chromebooks and some field trips.
