  • Traveling tips to help environment

        Summer time signals the start of the vacation season.

        Whether you are planning a day trip, a weekend getaway or a week-long vacation, you can travel “green” by following some simple environmentally friendly traveling tips.

    1.     Before you go, unplug unnecessary appliances such as TVs, DVD players, coffee pots and microwaves.  These items use energy even when they are turned off.  Adjust your thermostat and water heater setting to conserve energy.

  • Thanks, Boswell

        Thanks should go to Jim Boswell and the crew he assembled over the past 19 years with the Bullitt County Adult and Community Education program.

Be careful giving out your personal information!

     

  • Rally may give some preview of fall elections

        On Thursday evening, Bullitt County will host its first tea party event. The featured speaker will be Dr. Rand Paul, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate.

        The setting will be at the front portion of the Shepherdsville First Street Park next to Buckman Street.

        The local Voices for Independence organization is hosting the event.

        The question is whether there will be a large crowd at the event. Our guess is that there will be a number of people present.

  • Door-to-Door Sales Rise During Summer: BBB Warns Consumers to Beware of Scams

        As summer begins and temperatures rise, often so do the tempers of angry consumers who fall victim to summer door-to-door salesmen.  While many door-to-door salesmen are honest, every summer the Better Business Bureau receives troubling complaints from consumers who made purchases on their doorstep and were dissatisfied with the quality of product received, if they receive anything at all.
