Today's Opinions

  • Vote John Schmidt

     I have known John for most of my life. We first met through his daughter, Stephanie, who is my oldest friend. Stephanie and I stayed classmates all the way from Kindergarten to Senior Year, and John was a constant presence in my life. 

    My relationship with the Schmidts started at St. Aloysius. During that time, I recognized John’s dedication to faith and family. John acted as a quiet but strong leader at St. A, inspiring and encouraging members of the community. 

  • Vote John Schmidt

     Election time is fast approaching and the news has made it clear our political family is in crisis.

    Unfortunately, like many families today, division and controversy is pulling the fabric of our democracy apart.

    We as voters have an opportunity to place in office people who can work with both sides. That is what Family Court Judge is all about and it is my hope John Schmidt will be that person.

  • Vote Hank Linderman

     I recently got a flyer in the mail from Rep. (R-KY) Brett Guthrie. It proclaims: “We did it! The economy is booming.”

    Long before President Trump was elected, the economy was strong and ticking upwards. Trump and his fellow Republican braggarts are riding on the coattails of President Obama’s success.

  • Vote Monica Meredith

     We are writing this letter of recommendation for Monica Meredith Sheeks for Bullitt County Family Court Judge.

    Monica brings the right mix of humility, diligence and intelligence as an attorney and has been an advocate for her clients in public and private practice. She has an invaluable sense of humor, and most of all, a bone-deep sense of fairness in all she undertakes. She is civic minded and contributes both her time and talents in all areas of Bullitt County.

  • Vote Monica Meredith

     I have known Monica Meredith for several years and she has always been very professional and very polite when talking business.

    As a friend, you couldn’t ask for anyone better and I’m proud to call her my friend and support her for family court judge.

  • Vote John Schmidt

     This letter is in support of John Schmidt for Family Court Judge. I have known John and his family for over 25 years. John served on the Bullitt County Family YMCA Board of Directors for six years and as Chairman of the Board for five of those years.

    John truly cares about Bullitt County children and families. His leadership put the YMCA in position to serve hundreds of children and families through programs and services.

    Years later both of his girls, Stephanie and Erica, worked for the YMCA. They both have the same passion for children that John has.

  • Vote Depp Rasner

     I am writing on behalf of Depp Risner . 

    The years that I was the head football coach at Bullitt Central cemented my friendship with Depp. He was important to the school as we fought our way back to respectability. 

    Depp was respectful and worked very hard in rebuilding our football program . He was always open and honest with me at all times. His character and desire to help me in my job never wavered.

  • Mended Hearts success
