  • The Next Star 2010: BBB Inquiries Suggest "Buyer Beware" Approach

    The Better Business Bureau has warned consumers for years about talent search firms whose primary goal is to collect money from would-be models, singers or movie stars.  Some talent search businesses are mostly interested in taking financial advantage of the ambitions of people seeking to become a star, and not-so-much interested in identifying talent or advancing the career of the people who audition or try out.

  • Court asked to stop moratorium on taking in roads

        CEDAR GROVE - Linda Wilson didn’t understand why Bullitt Fiscal Court members would not accept Big Country East off Lickskillet Road into its maintenance system.

        She was working with retired road department foreman Carroll Samuels to bring the street into compliance.

        However, along the way came an economic crunch for the county and fiscal court passed a moratorium on accepting any gravel roads into the maintenance system.
