  • 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.

  • Thanks to Valu Market

     AARP Mount Washington and Bullitt County Retired Teachers Association wish to say thank you to Valu-Market of Mount Washington and their generous customers for the outpouring of donated food September 10. Gifts to our storefront collection baskets helped fill some of the empty spaces on food back shelves and fed those without enough resources to nourish their families.

  • Golf fund-raiser thanks

     Bethel United Methodist Church held their 9th Annual Golf Scramble on July 9. Thanks to our sponsors, our players (22 teams), and our church family. A special thanks to Steve Peak and to Ronnie Atwood and Lou Ann Moore for coordinating the whole thing.

  • You are the elected ones

     My understanding is that there are approximately 300,000 immigrants facing possible deportation in Federal Immigration Courts.

  • What about us?

             I read the article regarding the Red Rock Group in the paper  and am amazed and appalled that this community who stands to have their way of life destroyed, their property completely devalued, (not to mention the ecological impact ) have not even been asked how we feel or what we think.

  • Thanks to everyone

     The entire Tipton Family wishes to thank those who shared sympathy and compassion during the difficult and sudden loss of our Elizabeth.

    Words cannot express how grateful we are for the support and generosity of the many individuals who, in special ways, let us know they care.
