  • Remember to vote

     We have thousands of our soldiers engaged in a war to protect freedoms that we as U.S. citizens are taking for granted.

    One of those freedoms is the right to elect the leaders of our country. We can vote for the person(s) of our choice without fear of reprisal. In many countries casting a vote can result in a death sentence. Unfortunately too man Americans (Bullitt Countians) DO NOT VOTE! Some say it doesn’t matter or it won’t make a difference or my vote is not important. I’m sure our soldiers and veterans would strongly disagree with you.

  • Youth must get their high school diploma or their GED

     FRANKFORT – It has been a little more than a decade ago since the General Assembly revamped the state’s adult education programs, a high point in the legislature’s ongoing efforts to improve the classroom from preschool to the workplace.

    While a lot of work remains, the past decade has been exactly what we had hoped. In fact, from 2005 to 2009, adult education enrollment grew by 30 percent – faster than any other state over the same period. There are now about 40,000 citizens who are helped academically each year.

  • Safety tips for the road as schools begin

      FRANKFORT - For some 23 million students nationwide, the school day begins and ends with a trip on a school bus. Unfortunately, each year many children are injured and even killed in school bus related crashes.

    Last year, Kentucky had 985 school bus related crashes resulting in 278 injuries and four deaths. With school starting in many communities, KSP Spokesman Lt. David Jude is urging motorists to be alert for loading and unloading school buses.

  • Appreciation of Chicken still there

     Whenever I attend a baseball game today, many of my memories come to mind, none more than a recent appearance in Louisville by the top bird of them all, The Famous Chicken.

  • Save social security

     I don’t know if I am hearing this right about proposals in Washington, D.C. to cut Social Security to reduce a deficit it did not cause. Social Security is critically important for American people of all ages. Are they saying when you become retirement age you cannot retire? Reason being there will not be any money left to give you so you can retire and live a peaceful life. Are they going to take it away from the ones that have already retired? What about Medicare benefits that would affect millions of people in America?
