  • Time is now to study the direction of planning for the future

    The family that operates under the umbrella of Bullitt County government recently lost a very valuable member.

    Evelyn Fackler, a long-time employee with the Bullitt County Planning and Zoning office, passed away after an illness.

    Starting in a small two-person office in what is now one of the history museum rooms, Fackler grew with the county.

    From an administrative assistant, she was first promoted to assistant director and then took over as the planning administrator when Larry Belcher went back full-time to the General Assembly.

    It's east to celebrate the Super Bowl. Many people will host parties in conjunction with the event. You can even celebrate on the lighter side by getting your party supplies and just watching the game at home (especially the silly commercials).

  • General Assembly, President both have tough jobs

    The General Assembly is in recess until we reconvene on Feb. 3.  But we continue with meetings.  The purpose of these meetings is to inform legislators and the public about problems in our current budget and potential solutions.

    Recall that we have a predicament because not enough tax money is being taken in to pay for the current budget.  The revenue forecast was inaccurate just like every other state in the country and, for that matter, the world.
