  • Some Thanksgiving poetry

    A day before Thanksgiving Eve, and at computer: Frazzled Steve.
    A longer weekend, hopes to leave, but must complete thine annual jaunt.
    Struggling hard to find some words while dreaming ‘bout the tasty birds,
    A meal awaits, with family nerds who, all about thine job, will taunt.
    Thou digress - the work awaits. “’Tis hunger tricks,” my mind doth haunt.
    Turkey sandwich, thou doth want.

  • Linda a public servant

     Thank God that our folks who were not all happy with the outcome of the election did not react like many in nation by disrupting the lives of their fellow man by seizing the streets protesting. If life gives you a lemon, make lemonade, for 4 days and nights they have disrupted our nation apparently they never work or go to school to improve their lifestyle. Instead of being negative look at what they could have done for our nation, volunteering to clean up their neighborhoods.

  • Thanks for DARE support

    You may have made a donation for the raffle, gave money or just came and ate. Your generosity was greatly appreciated. Without the support of the community, we could not have the D.A.R.E program. We would also like to thank the First Baptist Church for the use of their hall, the Bullitt Co. Women’s Club and the employees of the Sheriff’s Office.
