  • Easter tales for Bullitt County

     The primary election may have cracked open a large hole in Bullitt County’s annual Easter egg distribution plans, and the yolk is on local officials and candidates.

    The Bullitt County branch of the Regional Authority of Bunnies Bringing Incredible Things (RABBIT) Coalition has announced its refusal to deliver and hide Easter eggs in the county.

    “This decision was based upon political strife, partially caused by primary elections held too close to this wondrous holiday,” said RABBIT spokesperson Cleo “Crusty” Honeybunny.

  • Can’t get hoops season out of your head yet?

     Having troubles shaking off the losses by Kentucky and Louisville in the NCAA tournament?

    With a little space to fill, think about the importance we place on the hoops game.

    Various jurisdictions have various laws about when signs can be posted.

    The county and the city of Shepherdsville have no restrictions on when signs are erected.

  • Tolerance is something we need to practice

     A couple words for you today regarding tolerance. Or intolerance rather. Two fairly recent happenings have made me very upset and sad as an American.

    The first was an ad (I’m sure you all remember) done by Coca-Cola for the Super Bowl.

  • Sessions nears end; budget work now

     FRANKFORT – This past week was the final full week of the 2014 Regular Session, leaving only a few days remaining until this year’s 60-day session comes to a close.
