  • BBB Warns: Avoid Petal Pushers this Mother's Day

        Loved ones who plan to send flowers for Mother’s Day should beware of “petal pushers.”

        These unscrupulous florists place bogus listings in local phone directories.

        When you call the local number listed, or given to you by the operator, you’re unknowingly forwarded to an out-of-town telemarketing company.

        The telemarketer takes your order and credit card information, and then forwards your order to an area florist.

  • Cases of child abuse too much; HANDS could help

        Child abuse is terrifying, sad, and senseless!

        I believe no one wakes up in the morning and says “Today I am going to hurt my child.”

        Unfortunately, child abuse occurs anyway.

        A definition for child abuse is an injury or pattern of injuries that is not an accident.

        Child abuse includes non-accidental physical harm, abandonment, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse.

  • Budget still in works for state lawmakers

  • IRS Payment Options Include E-pay, Credit Card, Installment Agreements and Offers in Compromise

    The Internal Revenue Service wants to remind taxpayers to pay all taxes due by the April 15 deadline to avoid interest and failure-to-pay penalties.

    If you have a balance due and do not pay by April 15, you are subject to a failure-to-pay penalty. If you cannot complete your return and file it by April 15, you may request an extension of time to file. However, an extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay.

  • TARC dilemma will be difficult one for county

        Riders in Bullitt County have become accustomed to the luxury of having mass transportation to and from downtown Louisville each day.

        TARC has provided service for over 20 years to Bullitt Countians who Park and Tarc in Mount Washington and Shepherdsville.

        The one bus was then replaced by a second bus and now three buses make the route.

        In the future, there may be no TARC service.

  • BBB Warns Businesses About New Phishing Attack

    Better Business Bureau is warning business to beware of a new malicious e-mail that pretends to be from BBB about a complaint filed against the company.

  • Boss is gone but no time to play for me

    It’s amazing how much could take place in a week.

    The first week of April has been a full one. Good or bad, it’s been completely full.

    I don’t seem to ever recall Holy Thursday taking place on April Fool’s Day. It worked out, because by the end of the day I prayed no one got hurt.

    Between office workers calling the Louisville Zoo asking for Mr. Behr and the phone receivers being disconnected, The Pioneer News staff really enjoyed themselves.
