  • BBB Hot Topics: October 2014

     See the latest scams and bad business in BBB’s October 2014 Hot Topics!

  • Support Linda Belcher

     I have known Linda Belcher for over 38 years. She and her late husband, Larry, were dedicated educators since 1970.

    She taught school, was an assistant principal and principal, and director of transportation in Bullitt County.

    Her service has always been in Bullitt County.

    Linda is a member of Little Flock Baptist Church and serves on the board for the Christian academy.

  • Chili supper thanks

     On behalf of the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, we would like to say thank you to all who supported our DARE chili supper.

  • Tax not for kids

     I have received my property taxes for the year and the school tax part that I have to pay is ridiculous.

    The biggest portion is school tax. Even superintendent Keith Davis admits that the school system could function without the extra tax being applied. Yes, we are hurting out here with inflation, gas prices, utilities increasing and everyone is fighting to keep what they make in their pockets.

  • No more tax hikes

     In reference to your recent commentary concerning the approved school tax rate, I would like to make the following comments:

    The School Board Members are smart not to offer a vote on any tax increases. They know that it would not receive an acceptable voter response.

    Your commentary stated that the district would have an additional $1.3 million dollars to spend, of which $1.2 million would go to the Teacher Retirement System and also give a 2 percent salary increase for next year. 

  • Remember Bill Breeden

     A man with a tremendous heart

    By MARY BARCZAK

    What can I say about a man that meant so much to so many. 

    I only had the honor of knowing Bill Breeden for a short time, but it didn’t take long for him to touch my heart.

    He was the man that knew everyone and knew how to get things done. I always admired his selflessness. He loved this community and gave all he had to it.

    He treated me like one of his own. 

  • Tax decision pretty typical of plight in today’s world

     Should there be unbridled excitement over the recent release of test scores by the state Department of Education?

    Obviously yes…if you are in Bullitt County.

    Should there also be some bridled reservations about what everything means?

    Of course.

    Before throwing any water on the party, we must say that the ship is going in the right direction.

    Some may question or dislike certain individuals. But they cannot question the work that has been done the past few years.

  • Tax decision pretty typical of plight in today’s world

     If you ever wanted to be an elected official, put yourself in the place of members of the Bullitt County Public School Board.

    Personally, it was a simple decision. But I am biased.

    As board members listened and considered a tax increase that would have meant $24 a year on a $100,000 home, I listened to a voice.

    “Am I not worth 46 cents per week?”

    That came from a young lady who I am pretty fond of. It is my daughter.
