  • Nelson for state treasurer

     Rick Nelson is running for state treasurer. I have had the pleasure of working with him for the last six years as a fellow legislator. He is a retired educator who has spent his life serving the people of Kentucky.

    He works hard and is a good, honest man.

    I am asking that you consider voting for Rick Nelson for state treasurer when you go vote in November.

  • Vote Conway, Overly

     Good, quality programs have a positive impact on young learners, not only cognitively but long-term socially, emotionally and behaviorally.

    Please vote for the candidates who care about the children of Kentucky and support early childhood education -- Jack Conway and Sannie Overly.

  • Pavilion moving forward

     The Mount Washington City Council and its mayor have been discussing, for some time, the need for a community center; a pavilion-type building, that would provide shelter for community events, a civic club fish fry, a place that our farmers market can call home and even a music festival on occasion.

    We already have a small city park, with the city fountain on that property, in the center of town. We needed a place to locate the new city pavilion, but certainly had no place available without spending a lot of city funds for the property.

  • Don’t be ‘scared’ to be organ donor

     As Halloween approaches, people think of scary things like witches, spiders, and haunted houses, but what is actually scary is the fact that each day 22 children, men & women in America die needlessly. 

    As superhero capes are fitted, what Kentuckians don’t realize that everyone can be a superhero all year long, costume not necessary.  Simply by saying “yes” at your Circuit Clerk’s office and becoming a registered organ donor.

  • Fire entities need to settle issues... NOW

     The time has come to get this long-standing dispute at Southeast Bullitt Fire District over and done.

    Like a fire, maybe shutting off the oxygen is the best way to extinguish the blaze that has been burning the past year.

    Prior to that, it was a smoldering fire that wasn’t seen on the surface because those who were upset had no power and no control to get the word out.

    Finally, by actions that really had nothing to do with the fire department, the earthen cover was removed and a fire escaped.

  • BBB Warns: Beware of scams after flooding

     The Better Business Bureau is warning those who want to help flood victims in South Carolina and neighboring states to beware of scammers and fake charities. After a natural disaster, it’s common for scam artists to impersonate charities to get money or private information from those who want to help.

    Here are some tips from BBB:

    ·       Donate to well-known charities. Beware of charities that spring up overnight. Check out a charity at bbb.org/charity.

  • Cooler temps heat up fall bass fishing

     FRANKFORT – The orange tint in the tops of mature trees portend what is coming our way. Cool nights with crisp, gorgeous days signal not only some of the best days of the year in Kentucky, but also the beginning of the fall reservoir fishing season for largemouth bass.

    September is typically the driest month of the year and the water in many lakes becomes air-clear. The clear water combined with the lingering summer thermal stratification of the lake makes predator fish lethargic and skittish. This leads to tough fishing.

  • Grades add up for school district work

     Just for a few moments, the naysayers who do not believe in the progress being made by the Bullitt County Public School System -- go to the corner and be quiet.

    By this time, one would think that those who do not believe in the work being done by the school system would be convinced.

    We know they are not. And we would never expect 100 percent of the people to be standing firm in the corner of the school system -- or any other entity.

    Just for argument’s sake, the school system should earn some credit.
