    Let us take a few recent decisions by Bullitt Fiscal Court. 

    Not to constantly hammer on the court -- because we’re not sure they pay too much attention -- but we need to step back for just a moment.

    The planning administrator position has been open for months.

    Roanne Hammond has come out of retirement to fill the vacancy. She is an excellent person and will do a good job, as she did previously.
