  • County must work on way to avoid future scam jobs

    Let the finger pointing begin.

    Who is to blame for the theft of over $416,000 from the county’s payroll account? How did cyber crooks from the Ukraine target Bullitt County, Ky., to scam for such a large amount of money?

    Who knows?

    The facts are that over the course of six days, unauthorized transactions were made by hacking into the county’s computer system.

    The FBI is investigating.

    According to most sources, including a wonderful documentation of the situation by Brian Krebs of The Washington Post, it is a sophisticated scheme.

  • Storm water topic could heat up on Thursday

    You are a local official trying to make the budget balance without slapping on more taxes.

  • What does party really cost parents?

    A friend called me recently, a bit excited that an old flame had just moved back into town.

    She was a little nervous about running into him and uncertain how she might react.  This came as quite a surprise to me, as I have always known her to be an ethical person who had never been unfaithful to her husband. I was certain she would handle it appropriately.

    I was reflecting on this conversation at a soccer game for my seven-year old son.

    Another parent shared with me that her teenage son’s team played poorly the week before.

  • Make Internet safe for youngsters

    With school out and many kids spending more time on the Internet during the summer months, Attorney General Jack Conway wants to remind Kentucky families about the importance of staying safe online.  In observance of June’s designation as National Internet Safety Month, General Conway asks that parents be engaged in the virtual world, just as they are in the real world.

  • Jurors, elected officials are similar

    With the filing deadlines still seven months away, those running for office on both a state and local level must determine one thing - is it my goal to regulate morality?

    And the electorate must decide whether it expects its leaders to provide the rules of morality to the masses.

    It has often been said that one doesn’t talk politics or religion. Let’s try to do both.
