Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • BBB Hot Topics: June 2018

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • Elect Sholar

     It has been my honor to know and work with Walt Sholar for more than eight years and there is no question that he will make an exceptionally well-qualified sheriff.

    When I first met him, Walt was serving as county attorney but was seeking a way to directly support the men and women of our armed forces who were being sent to Iraq and Afghanistan. Without compensation and at his own expence, he took vacation time to h elp provide firearms and tactics training to thousands of the Kentucky National Guard and in so doing helped to save lives.
