  • Fall Forest Fire Hazard Season Ends

    FRANKFORT - The fall forest fire hazard season officially ended Dec. 15, but officials with the Kentucky Division of Forestry continue to urge caution when conducting any kind of outdoor burning.  “Kentucky’s forests have weathered serious storms over the past few years and the increase in dead and fallen trees are of particular concern to fire suppression efforts,” said Leah MacSwords, director of the Division of Forestry.

  • Time of giving arrives for our community

    As a very tough 2009 comes to a close, it is time for our community to come together like it always does in a time of need.

    The economy has been tough and unemployment has risen above 10 percent for the past year. Many others who are employed have experienced reduced hours or pay freezes.

    During this holiday season, many more will be seeking a little bit of assistance. It is time for all of us who have dug so deep in the past to dig a little deeper.

  • Be a Smart Shopper this Holiday Season

    The holiday shopping season is off and running despite a shaky economy. Smart shoppers may be able to snap up bargains before, after and on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving that traditionally is one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

    However, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) advises consumers to arm themselves with knowledge and a budget before hitting the stores. Setting limits on spending is especially important to avoid a deluge of post-holiday bills.

  • Hold on or you’ll get left behind in court

    If members of the judicial system in Bullitt County were looking for something to buy Circuit Judge Rodney Burress for Christmas, they may pool their money and send him on a two-week vacation.

    The 55th Circuit was in the spotlight several years ago for having many old cases which were unresolved.

    That isn’t a problem now.

    Steps taken under retired Bullitt Circuit Judge Thomas Waller and continued on to Burress, who has made changes of his own, have resulted in Bullitt County sitting atop the state standings.

  • Has Turkey Flu returned to Bullitt County?

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Countians have found themselves in one smorgasbord of a mess pertaining to this year’s Thanksgiving holiday festivities.

    In recent weeks fears of the H1N1 Swine Flu virus have dominated headlines. In the past few days, however, reports surfaced about a possible return of the Bullitt County Turkey flu.

    In 2005 an original Turkey Flu scare hit the area. Jake Turkey, official spokesturkey for the organization Turkeys United For Freedom (TUFF), claimed that scare along with the recent scare were both hoaxes.
