  • BBB Tips on Storm and Flood Damage

    BBB is urging property owners in need of repairs and clean-up to carefully check out companies before hiring them after heavy rain made its mark on the area this weekend.

    BBB warns, be aware of those who may take advantage of your situation: The home repair rip-off artist, who may overcharge, perform shoddy work, or skip town without finishing your job. BBB suggests homeowners call or go to the BBB’s website, www.bbb.org, to check out contractors before hiring them.

  • Budget proposal will get scrutiny as it truly should

        There is one guarantee in Bullitt County - officials will hammer out a budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year, no matter the differences.

        Unlike our folks in Frankfort, there won’t be a power struggle at the top of the food chain. An agreement will be  worked out locally.

        Of course, there will be an agreement worked out in Frankfort. It might just cost the people of Kentucky $64,000 a day until it gets done.

  • All eligible must receive benefit of hazardous duty retirement

        When you are young, the only thing that matters in the paycheck is the bottom line.

        As you get a little older, benefits such as insurance, retirement and savings means a little more.

        When the state of Kentucky began making local governments decide whether to place eligible employees in the hazardous duty retirement program, it gave officials options they really didn’t need to have.

  • Remember to send in your Census info

        Many may feel that filling out the Census information every 10 years is a waste of time.

        It isn’t.

        In fact, it is more important than most people realize.

        And plus, the federal government just spent $85 million sending out letters recently telling you that Census information is coming your way.

        Make that investment count by filling out the information forms as accurately as possible.

  • Salute to dedicated nurses

    “She is a ‘ministering angel’ without any exaggeration in these hospitals, and as her slender form glides quietly along each corridor, every poor fellow’s face softens with gratitude at the sight of her.

    When all the medical officers have retired for the night and silence and darkness have settled down upon those miles of prostrate sick, she may be observed alone, with a little lamp in her hand, making her solitary rounds.” (cited in, The Life of Florence Nightingale by E.T. Cook (1913) Vol 1, p 237)

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • Parks Board makes sound, quick decisions

        The re-creation of the Bullitt County Parks and Recreation board got off to a very positive start on Monday.

        The reason wasn’t the decisions made but because there was an exchange of dialogue from various interests.

        The decision to make a proposal to fiscal court on Tuesday for the YMCA to have a management agreement to operate the three swimming pools this summer was a correct one.

  • Do your duty... go out and vote

        The time has almost arrived.

        The last signs have been posted. The commercials and advertisements are coming to an end.

        The time has come to quite complaining and start taking action.

        Election day is on Tuesday, May 18. That’s from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Plenty of time to cast a ballot.

        In Bullitt County, there are many important races on the ballot. In fact, every race is important.
