  • Fields set...now lets get started with primary campaign work

    The late flurry of candidates has passed and now the primary fields are set for this May.

    Candidates have several months to let the people know what they are going to do for them in the various offices.

    Our hope is that Bullitt Countians will continue to be bombarded with the facts...not a stretch of the truth.

    We hope motorists will still be able to navigate the roads with clear vision...not clouded by political signs sitting on the edge of the asphalt.

  • Better Business Bureau Advises Donors on Haiti Earthquake Charity Appeals

  • Budget proposal made as state faces tough future

    Nearly two weeks ago I submitted a two-year budget proposal that included a bold new way to help fund, on a recurring basis, shared priorities like education and jobs, a way that eschewed the tax increases and destructive cuts being espoused by some legislative leaders.

    As I had predicted, my proposal was met with a chorus of angry responses in some quarters, and the posturing and rhetoric was as stiff as it was unhelpful in moving the discussion forward.

    In fact, some legislators declared my budget “dead” even before they examined it.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • House must originate budget discussions

    Budgets must originate in the House of Representatives, so it’s our job to write a spending plan for the House to approve.

    It takes a lot of work, especially since we will need to make cuts this year and that is always difficult.

    But we will pass a budget and send it to the Senate.

  • Schools could now be eligible for more funds

        FRANKFORT – With an eye on giving our schools a better shot to compete for as much as $200 million in federal grants, the General Assembly unanimously approved legislation last week that should greatly increase our chances.

  • Young doctor carries same vision

    HILLVIEW - Just close your eyes and listen.

    There is no need to have any DNA or paternity tests.

    Just close your eyes and listen.

    There is no doubt that Dr. Praveen Arla is the son of Dr. Mohana Arla.

    And it’s not because of how they say it...it’s because of what they are saying.

    Praveen has recently joined his father’s medical practice in Hillview and Lebanon Junction. It’s a natural to enter a field he’s known his entire life.

    But the young doctor said he went into the field with his eyes wide open.
