  • Support Local Pharmacies

    The recent closing of Ear X-tacy in Louisville has me wondering what the citizens of Nelson County would think if they lost the services of their local pharmacists. The possibility is real. The similarities to what shut down Ear X-tacy, and the economic pressures facing retail pharmacy, are quite striking, except for one thing: Music is a commodity, drugs purchased at a pharmacy and the services provided by a pharmacist are not.

  • Domestic Violence Month

      August 9th will forever live in infamy in my family. That day my sister, Karen was killed by her husband. Although he told many that she wouldn’t leave him alive, no one believed him. 

  • Leaders must work together

  • Thanks to supporters

     On Saturday, September 10, 2011, the Eastside Middle School Cheerleaders held their 2nd Annual Golf Scramble at The Crossings. It was a huge success and we would like to thank the following companies for their sponsorship:

  • Let the traffic flow again

     Since the closing of the Sherman-Minton Bridge, there have been problems with traffic.

  • Thanks to supporters

     I am the Bullitt County Community Organizer working on behalf of a grant awarded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to KIPDA in partnership with U of L. Bullitt County was selected as a targeted county to be served due to the high rate of diabetes and obesity of its residents.

  • Smoking ban needed

  • Something to worry about

     There is something to worry about. After the release of the worst jobs report since September 2010, the unemployment rate stayed at 9.1 percent and the stock market plunged in response.

    Companies are keeping payrolls intact. They are not laying off any workers, but they are not hiring either. People that have jobs are afraid to spend money because of the economy. The economy cannot survive much longer unless jobs are added.

  • Government should act

     Well, now that the cities and county governments have managed to stop the health department from doing what is right, I certainly hope that our elected officials will be quick to enact a smoking ban to help all of us breathe easier. I hope that this was not just a power play by elected officials to keep the health department from doing their job (protecting the public health).

  • Don’t get into scam

     If someone calls and tries to sell you the Brooklyn Bridge or tries to con you out of money, do not go along with the scam, because that is what it is. They are trying to extort money from you. These people prey on anyone that will listen to them. In turn, you could loose everything you have worked for all of your life real quick. Many times I have hard about a person losing a loved one and falling in the trap these crooks have sprung on them by a scam.
