  • Gulf Oil Spill Recovery: BBB Tips for Donors and Volunteers

        In the wake of any disaster, many reach for their checkbooks and donate money to organizations. But, with any disaster are a slew of scams. In the wake of the oil spill, the BBB Wise Giving Alliance cautions consumers to beware that scammers will use e-mails, websites, door-to-door collections, flyers, mailings, and telephone calls to make contact and solicit money. Some will claim they are raising money for environmental causes or they may offer fraudulent services like remediation services related to the oil spill.

  • Plenty of wild cards in this tale

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The jokers were running wild during another recent Bullitt Fiscal Court meeting fiasco.

        Capitalizing on popular news events of the day, combined with upcoming elections, officials were playing for every vote possible.

        Bullitt County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts began dealing out the likelihood of Bullitt County officially campaigning to host the next FIFA World Cup Soccer tournament.

  • Changers give valuable aid to local residents

        The work done last week by the Kentucky Changers should be commended.

        Volunteers from across the state came into the county to assist in making needed repairs on homes in which the owner couldn’t make those improvements.

        Throughout this country, volunteers put in endless hours to help others. Often, those works go unnoticed.

        We appreciate the work done by the Kentucky Changers and the organizational efforts performed by Bullitt County native Joe Ball.

  • First meeting not pleasant

        I recently had the displeasure of learning a valuable lesson first hand - politics can get very ugly.

        While covering a special meeting of Bullitt Fiscal Court I watched a hand full of county officials let their personal feelings get in the way of the people’s business as they bickered over issues that should’ve been discussed and resolved behind closed doors.

  • Congratulations to fair board on successful week

    After a long, hot week at the Bullitt County Fair, we take a few moments to thanks those who volunteer their time to make this happen.

    Despite the hot weather, attendance at the county fair was the third highest in history.

    The fair board members put in unbelievable hours during the actual event - in addition to their regular jobs.

    The inmates at the Bullitt County Detention Center also put in hundreds of hours to help set up and take down the fair. Plus, each day, they were brought there to clean up the facilities.

  • Checks show that system is still working

        The conspiracy theory is still looming in local political circles.

        But through a recanvass and a recount on one precinct, the results of the Bullitt County primary election have not changed.

        Of course, that isn’t to mean that there are some concerns in the community, especially with those who remain suspect of the entire system.

        For the past several elections, Bullitt County has garnered focus, including filming of the tabulations in the clerk’s office.
