  • Go to the fair next week

     If anyone has any connections with Mother Nature, maybe you can put a plug in for the Bullitt County Fair, set for June 12-17.

    We hope -- no matter the weather -- will take the opportunity to venture down to the county fair next week. There’s plenty of things to do and the parking is always free.
