  • We just need ‘more’ from government

     There’s just something missing at times when our governmental leaders do decide to make a decision.

    Let us take a few recent decisions by Bullitt Fiscal Court. 

    Not to constantly hammer on the court -- because we’re not sure they pay too much attention -- but we need to step back for just a moment.

    The planning administrator position has been open for months.

    Roanne Hammond has come out of retirement to fill the vacancy. She is an excellent person and will do a good job, as she did previously.

  • BBB warns: “Can you hear me now?” scam

      The “can you hear me now?” scam has previously targeted businesses, but a new twist is now targeting consumers. Better Business Bureaus nationwide are receiving BBB Scam Tracker reports about this latest scam.

  • Pay close attention to issues in Frankfort

     This is my last newspaper report as your state representative for district 49. 

    A summary of my December committee meetings follows.

    1.  LOCAL GOVERNMENT COMMITTEE. 

    KACO gave their report for 2017 County Legislative issues. The issue that will affect Bullitt County the most (if passed) is changing the road formula. Another concern raised involves a strain on our jails.

    2. TASK FORCE FOR PREVENTING CHILD ABUSE AND EXPLOITATION.(Which I chaired). 

  • How to win a war

     I addressed you Mister (Trump) because I believe every man should earn his title and most only become famous after death. I voted for you but God chose you to lead this great country back to sanity.

  • Roby says thank you
  • Roadside trash

     I always love it when the trash collectors come every April to pick up YOUR trash on I-65.

    The roadway looks so  nice.. for about two days.

    Why not save your trash for a trash receptacle so we never  see it? That way our roadways would always look great.

  • BBB Tips on Kentucky Derby Ticket Scams

     Derby season is officially here! If you are on the hunt for last minute Kentucky Oaks or Derby tickets, beware that scammers are trying to fool you into purchasing fake tickets.

  • New theme, same mission

     We have changed our theme for our Derby activity.

    Over the last five years, the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education has sponsored a Derby Gala to raise money for our classrooms.

    In the first year, the foundation raised $3,028; last year, the group raised $17,856.
