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. 


     For National Prevention Week, the member of Bullitt County’s drug-free coalition were challenged to write letters to their future selves about what they’re doing today to ensure a healthier tomorrow.

    Dear Future Me,

    *Remember that every choice you make not only affects yourself, but it could be a ripple effect for everyone else. –Sarah Smith

    *Always remember that you are a living example that will either empower or discourage others! –Jonna Naylor


     It is your right that should not be taken for granted.

    It is your duty to express your view on who your future leaders should be.

    It is not your right to complain if you are not part of the system.

    Next Tuesday, Bullitt Countians will be encouraged to go out to the polls and vote in the May 22 primary.

    Some of the winners will not face opposition in the fall. Others will.

    For a countywide race, there is little chatter.

    We hope that doesn’t mean that a majority of you plan to sit at home next Tuesday.

  • 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.
