  • Smoking ban in public buildings should be easy

     When Bullitt Fiscal Court discussed the passage of a no-smoking ordinance in county buildings, there were quite a few in the audience who were caught by surprise.

    There were no signs posted but it was a given - you can’t light it up in a county facility.

    Well, maybe you can. At least for a little while.

    There has been no local or state law adopted to prohibit smoking or tobacco products in county government or state government facilities.

    We believe Bullitt Fiscal Court will change that.

    And they should.

  • On-line tracking service paying big dividends

    That ordinance required pawn shops, scrap metal yards and anyone who bought items of value for resell to participate in a program, Leads-on-Line.
