  • BBB’s Top 10 Summer Job Scam Tip-offs

     Better Business Bureau is warning university and high school students looking for work this summer to be careful to avoid job scams.

    Many Internet and newspaper ads have postings that claim: “sum­mer job, make $300 a day!” or “last year our employ­ees made $10,000 over the sum­mer.”

    Here are 10 tip-offs that the “employment opportunity” could be a scam:

  • Road plan success

     The 2012-2016 Road Plan for Kentucky is official and Bullitt County is one of the winners with the awarding of almost $70,000,000.00 in road funds!

  • Thanks to Tech Center

     I want to thank the Bullitt County Technical Center’s welding instructor, Scott Metcalf, for his help with an election sign clamp that he made for the Bullitt County Board of Elections. He was more than willing to help and his talent and skill showed in the finished product. He is an asset to the Tech Center and the welding program and I want it to be known to all of the citizens of Bullitt County.

  • Take down yard sale signs

     Now that summer is here in full force, yard sales are being held every weekend and the signs are going up everywhere to lead people to them. If you put up a yard sale sign, please go back and take it down after the sale. They create trash and are unnecessary. Your neighbors will thank you.
