     Holes in the soul.

  • Initial plan to establish mutual aid good start

  • Incentives should put county on right road

     You can have the best educational system in the world but if you can’t get kids to and from school, there is no education system.

    For the past couple of years, Bullitt County -- as well as many other districts -- have had a problem recruiting school bus drivers.
