  • Issues dogged county long enough...time to solve them

     We are normally not all that excited when the way to solve a problem is to form a committee or a task force.

    However, Bullitt County Judge Melanie Roberts may have reached the only possible solution to the barks and howls over the operation of the animal shelter when she recommended a committee.
