  • Do the best you can

    I couldn’t answer that question a year ago, but now I can. I was very sick and needed a lung transplant to live.

  • Bullitt County Derby has lot of unique horses

     A mix of rain, snow, wind, freezing temperatures and a heat wave, just in the past hour, resulted in undetermined track conditions at Mike Farner Downs for the annual running of the Bullitt County Derby.

    Last year jailer Martha Knox led the Bullitt County Detention Center entry, Fort Knox, to the winner's circle. This year the jail presents a half-brother to the reigning champ, Hard Knox, a son of Tough School.

    This year's betting favorite is Street Hoops, sponsored by the city of Hillview. Street Hoops is out of Nothing Else To Do and Road Block.

  • Vote for Abell

     I am writing to encourage your readers to re-elect Layne Abell as the Bullitt Circuit Court Clerk. Layne has done an outstanding job in his duties and in maintaining a high-quality staff and service-oriented office. He is well respected by members of the judicial system throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. I am very proud to support Layne in his bid for re-election and hope your readers will do the same on May 22!
