  • Fight drug abuse

     Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. In 2014, it surpassed both car accidents and gun violence in number of deaths.

    Those with loved ones who are using opiates or heroin need to be aware that opiates are the main contributors to this problem. With drug dealers across the United States mixing new and powerful synthetic drugs into street opiates such as heroin, the chance of accidental overdose has exponentially increased.

  • Appreciate the help

     Recently, on the way home from Kentucky Down Under, I had a flat tire in my Jeep on I-65 Northbound right before the 480 exit.

    I called AAA who assured me I was a top priority and they would arrive in 20 minutes. I had my four children with me. It was 90 degrees.

    After waiting 35 minutes, I called AAA again and was told 15-30 minutes. I called a third time and was told the driver was on the way.

  • Serving the homeless

     There is no doubt about it, Bullitt County has a homeless population.

    Room in the Inn – BC (RITI) is in its 26th month serving this population  with great success.  RITI has not missed a night of service since inception. 

    Along with nightly shelter, RITI provides meals, transportation and resource  connections to men, women and children across Bullitt County.

  • Remember the Community

     In response to the July 5 newspaper report about the Bullitt County Economic Development Authority considering to push recruiting more commercial development in addition to industrial development, I’d just like to say that could be good.

    But I offer this friendly reminder to all officials that the ultimate purpose of government and related entities should be to improve the lives of regular people, residents, and families in the county.

  • Homeless shelter

     There is no doubt about it - Bullitt County has a Homeless Population. 

    HOUSING FIRST COALITION has been working very hard over the past few months to devise a plan to get in place a Permanent Shelter for Bullitt County Homeless. 

    At the Shelter, resources can be made available to individuals to get them back on their feet. 

  • Retirees speak up

  • Roby says thank you
  • Roadside trash

     I always love it when the trash collectors come every April to pick up YOUR trash on I-65.

    The roadway looks so  nice.. for about two days.

    Why not save your trash for a trash receptacle so we never  see it? That way our roadways would always look great.

  • New theme, same mission

     We have changed our theme for our Derby activity.

    In the first year, the foundation raised $3,028; last year, the group raised $17,856.
