  • 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.

  • Clark does county proud during reign

    The title of Miss Bullitt County Fair is something some young ladies will seek a number of years.

    In your home county, it is a prestigious title for those who seek the pageant sash and tiara.

    For Kindra Clark, the Mount Washington resident has taken the time and done wonderful things in her year with the crown. Capturing the Miss Kentucky USA title allowed her to compete nationally.

  • First year is the hardest

    Well I have officially completed my anniversary of Firsts.

    First Fathers Day, Birthday, July Fourth, Thanksgiving, Christmas...just to name a few.

    See, my Daddy passed away June 7, 2009 and this year of firsts is always the hardest, so I am told.

    I always said I could never imagine my life without my Dad and Mom. However that stark reality hit home last April when Dad started exhibiting strange behaviors.

  • Transportation Cabinet launches enhanced traffic information site

    FRANKFORT - Just in time for the vacation travel season the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has launched an enhanced traffic information website with a number of new features.

    The new site, at the same Web address of 511.ky.gov, operates on a Google Maps-based system, which will be familiar to many users.

    “Our enhanced 511 reflects an effort to provide more tools to the traveling public but also to make our information more meaningful,” said Acting Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock.

  • Some good things did come out of new budget

        FRANKFORT - In a spirit of compromise that followed weeks of debate, the House and Senate came together recently to vote for a two-year budget that has the twin goals of living within our means while preserving classroom funding and other critical services.

        Unfortunately, I could not vote for the Executive Branch budget.  I felt that too many “good things” were cut from the budget that would have helped Bullitt County and our state.  However, I did vote for the operation budget for the state’s road plan.
