  • BBB Hot Topics: December 2014

     See the latest scams and bad business in BBB’s December 2014 Hot Topics!

    1.    Local consumers are complaining to BBB that they are getting harassed by scammers who are calling, posing as IRS Employees. The scammers say the consumer owes on taxes, and will be arrested if they don’t pay immediately. They are trying to get personal/payment information.

  • Elvis still lives in the eyes of many of biggest fans

     “The King” Lives

    Recently, I had the pleasure of spending some time with Elvis. Even though he may have been dead for almost 40 years, he is still very much alive to some of his fans from Bullitt County and Louisville.

    The five-plus members call themselves the Taking Care of Business for Elvis Fan Club because that was his moto.

    All of the women agreed, they were drawn by his great looks and singing, but also the person he was.

  • Let us give much thanks

     It is that time each year that we take a few moments to give thanks.

    No matter our situation, there should always be an opportunity to thank others for what we have in life.

    Sometimes, we don’t have everything that we want. Others may not even have everything that we need.

    While the millions of dollars spent on elections could be put to better uses, that is not reality.

    Instead, we help others when we can without the need for any praise or publicity.

    We help ourselves as much as possible.

  • After years of service, it is time for chief to resign

     In the past 30 years, there is no memory of ever asking a public official to step down from his or her post.

    In the case of Southeast Bullitt fire chief Julius Hatfield, we think it is more than appropriate to make that request.

    (A special meeting was planned for Tuesday evening. The only item on the agenda was an announcement by Hatfield.)

  • Turkey disease hits region as big holiday nears

     Local officials are scratching their heads - and other areas - determining how they could allow a highly infectious disease to potentially ruin the local Thanksgiving holiday.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court, in collaboration with the Bullitt County Cooperative Extension Service and the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) Bernheim Chapter, officially prepared a statement warning local residents to avoid turkeys this year.

  • Honoring the veterans

     Tuesday, November 11 was Veterans Day.

    I know there were several restaurants between here and Louisville that did open their doors, showing their kindness and hospitality to we Veterans, giving us a free lunch. 

    We are not asking for hand out, only respect for our time we gave in fighting for our freedom. 

    There were many that didn’t come home, giving their lives for our freedom. Just think about this; if we didn’t win our wars, where would we be? 

  • BBB Tips: Black Friday Shopping

     Are you counting down the days and hours until Black Friday shopping? It’s time to start planning! Remember, all deals are not created equal and the fine print is often the most important thing! Before you head out the door, and get caught up in the frenzy, BBB offers these tips:

  • Thanksgiving is top day for cooking fires

     FRANKFORT, Ky. (Nov. 24, 2014) – Leaving food on the stove to cook unattended is a recipe for disaster, says Kentucky State Fire Marshal William Swope.

    According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries.

    "Being aware of fire safety while preparing your holiday meal can mean the difference between calling family and friends to the dinner table or calling the fire department to put out a fire," said Swope.
