Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Reading is Important

     Mark Twain said, “A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who  can’t read.” 

    Reading is the one activity that is beneficial for everyone.  Reading provides ideas for self-improvement, creativity, and high-level  thinking. Reading is the most important of academic skills because it is the  method through which all content is learned, and more importantly, it is the  skill that fosters success.

    As a teacher at Bullitt Lick, I am concerned about our students reading achievement. 

  • Thanks Teachers

     During this week of teacher appreciation, the Mount Washington Elementary School PTA wants to acknowledge the staff/faculty for all that they do for our children.

    We want to thank you for your tireless dedication, the smiles that you wear even on your most difficult days, the wisdom you impart, the example you set and the values you instill in our kids.

    You keep our most precious treasures safe and secure, prepared and cared for.

  • BBB Hot Topics: May 2018

     Take a look at BBB's hot topics for May 2018!

  • Weekend full of events that makes county shine bright

     We often write about the bad things that happen in Bullitt County.

    The crazy things that government folks tend to do at times.

    The decisions that we question.

    And the criminal acts which are committed.

    However, there is a silver lining that most people familiar with Bullitt County know -- it is a great place to live, work and raise a family.

    This weekend, residents will have three opportunities to get a taste of those good acts.

  • Thanks from HOPE

     We would like to thank everyone that made it possible to help send nine girls and one young man to the Bullitt Central prom.

    This was our second year and again it was a huge success, with the help of so many people.

    First, we want to thank Lindsey Bowles, Chrissy Mobley and Sara Huffman for doing the girls’ hair.

    Thanks to Katie Scott and Shaunna Cox for doing their makeup.

    Thanks to Christy Hardin of Bullitt Central, Stacey Cline and Bonnie Enlow for supplying the food.

    Thanks to Gary Gibson for the flowers.

  • Pay the teachers

     It’s not big secret that our nation lags behind others in educating our youth. While this is sad, it’s not surprising, watching our politicians hack away at programs and policies that are an integral part of producing successful adults.

    Education should never be a line item on the budget marked out. We should properly fund our schools and ensure that those who are directly responsible for educating our children are compensated fairly and promises upheld.

  • Welcome to our guests for the Kentucky Derby

     The Kentucky Derby is a tradition. And another annual tradition is that hundreds of Derby guests make it a point to spend a few days in Bullitt County.

    Many will return year after year.

    Some like the point that hotels are located on Interstate 65 and just a few miles from Churchill Downs.

    Others like that they can visit some great attractions while they are here.

    And still others have just gotten into a routine where they know the hotels, restaurants, gas stations and attractions.
