  • Time growing short until May primary election

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - To think that a major, countywide primary election is less than four weeks away, it is sure quiet.

        Yes, there are lots of signs placed on top of signs.

        But the chatter is pretty quiet and the days are counting down.

        Here’s a rundown on some of the upcoming activities, most of which are open to the public:

        *Thursday, April 22 - The Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce will host its second luncheon with the candidates.

  • The world will be watching Kindra

        When contestants in the Miss USA pageant walks across the stage, Bullitt County will have a representative.

        Kindra Clark, a Bullitt East graduate and resident of Mount Washington, will be representing Kentucky in quest of earning the title of Miss USA.

        No matter where she places in the pageant, Clark is a winner. The 2009 Miss Bullitt County Fair queen has been busy attending various functions and representing her county and state very well.

  • Best efforts still can't get state budget approved

        “Mr. Speaker, I would move you sir that ...we adjourn sine die, until the first Tuesday following the first Monday of the Year of Our Lord 2011, unless called into extraordinary session by the Governor of the Commonwealth.”

  • BBB Warns: Avoid Petal Pushers this Mother's Day

        Loved ones who plan to send flowers for Mother’s Day should beware of “petal pushers.”

        These unscrupulous florists place bogus listings in local phone directories.

        When you call the local number listed, or given to you by the operator, you’re unknowingly forwarded to an out-of-town telemarketing company.

        The telemarketer takes your order and credit card information, and then forwards your order to an area florist.

  • Cases of child abuse too much; HANDS could help

        Child abuse is terrifying, sad, and senseless!

        I believe no one wakes up in the morning and says “Today I am going to hurt my child.”

        Unfortunately, child abuse occurs anyway.

        A definition for child abuse is an injury or pattern of injuries that is not an accident.

        Child abuse includes non-accidental physical harm, abandonment, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse.

  • Budget still in works for state lawmakers

        FRANKFORT - When the Kentucky House of Representatives adopted its two-year budget several weeks ago, my colleagues and I had three main priorities: Streamline government; protect education and our most vulnerable citizens; and kick-start our economy.
