  • Mass transit may take big hit if leaders don't get on the bus

        Even before the gas price hikes a couple of years ago, Bullitt Countians had grown accustomed to parking their vehicles in Mount Washington and Shepherdsville and catching the TARC bus into downtown Louisville.

        The route became so popular that a third bus was placed on the  route.

        However, as gas prices have settled and budgetary woes have increased, TARC board members have a difficult decision.

  • Change or no change, change needed in parks plan for future

        There was a wonderful exchange of ideas on Thursday evening during the first of the quarterly night-time forums hosted by Bullitt Fiscal Court.

        While it would have been nice to have more general discussion, the topic of the night was quite clear - the proposed YMCA merger with the Bullitt County Parks and Recreation.

  • Time right to look at 'alternatives' in school year

        With so many innovative things happening in education, one item that really hasn’t been altered in years is the calendar.

        No matter what calendar is finally agreed upon, there will be those who are unhappy.

        As the push to get more instructional days into the calendar before state testing is done in the spring, maybe it is time to at least start discussions on some type of alternative calendar.
