  • BBB Warns: Beware of Valentine’s Scams

      Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Scam artists take advantage of every major event or holiday to launch scams, and Valentine’s Day is no exception! BBB warns, look out for these scams:

  • Jailer takes care of issue

     On Tuesday the 28th the weather was bad, cold as the Arctic Pole, I noticed when driving out Armstrong just South of Barbara sue Lane, debris all over the road in the ditch and stuck on the fence.

    I called Martha Knox, our jailer, about the trash. In less than an hour she sent inmates from the jail and cleaned it up. I was more than pleased with her prompt response. She is truly a good jailer and truly a public servant.

    Also I would like to commend the road department for good service in cleaning our roadways. They are great public servants.

  • Some comments can ‘really’ be confusing, entertaining

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It’s time for another installment of those REALLY moments from the past few weeks.

    The first revolves around how businesses react to big events, such as the Super Bowl.

    One major restaurant said it would close at 7 p.m. on Sunday due to the Super Bowl. I can understand that one as the game started around 6:30 p.m.

    But another one drew my REALLY comment.

    It announced that it would close at 9 p.m. due to the Super Bowl. 

  • Stretch of horrid weather is perfect time to prepare for upcoming fishing season

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – With much of Kentucky covered in a sundae made of snow topped with a crust of ice, fishing season seems millennia away.

    The sun gets higher in the southern sky with each passing day; it is only a matter of time before this horrible weather pattern breaks. Use this dark and cold time to prepare for the inevitable coming of the spring fishing season.

    1.    Don’t fall for the One Ring Scam! Here is how the scam works: Your cell phone rings once, then hangs up. To see who it was, you check the caller ID. It shows unknown or a long-distance area code you are not familiar with. Curious, you call back. Later, you find a fee on your cell phone bill, often $19.95 for a “premium service.”
