Today's Opinions

  • Center already turning things around

     Every city has its stereotypes. As a native Bullitt Countian, I’ve seen first hand how most of the cities have earned their reputation. However, Lebanon Junction continues to impress me.

    Set on changing the negative talk that surrounds the town, there is a group who won’t accept the bad and is determined to bring the city back to the glory it once held.

  • Degree of cuts still undecided as budget not yet finalized

     At first glance, it looks like Gov. Matt Bevin is serious about funding the stressed pension accounts -- at all cost.

    Seventy programs are slated to get the ax and most agencies will receive a reduction in funding.

    Of course, it is still January and the real budget decisions are still weeks away.

    But from the viewpoint miles and miles away from Frankfort, the commonwealth of Kentucky is short on “wealth” and full of needs.

    Now, we just need some “common” sense discussions among our lawmakers.

  • Nice situation to have Bullitt County members recognized

     Will having Melanie Roberts serve as president of the Kentucky County Judge/Executive Association reap big benefits for Bullitt County?

    Probably not.

    Will having Troy Beam lead a tourist organization do anything to put more heads in beds at local hotels?

    Maybe not.

    But what it will do is provide the rest of Kentucky a different perspective of Bullitt County.

    If is nice to have good people leading statewide organizations. It presents a different image to others.

  • Southern loop may be dream really worth dreaming about

     Many years ago, officials in nearby Jefferson County thought they needed a loop around the southern portion of its community.

    At the time, there wasn’t a lot of growth. The area wasn’t particularly full of lavish, expensive subdivisions.

    And there probably weren’t a lot of votes to be had by aspiring politicians.

    Instead, the Gene Snyder Freeway was a dream. It is was completed a small piece a little at a time.

    And, who would have thought the two bridges over the Ohio River would be built?

  • 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.
