  • Community has giving touch at holiday season

     No matter how people may act at particular moments of any time of the year, Bullitt County is full of caring people.

    Elected officials may fight with one another.

    Members of the public may complain about their elected officials.

    Elected officials may moan and groan about their constituents.

    And agencies may fight with one another.

    Consultant Kriss Lowry has gone above and beyond the scope of the project. Now, she is facing the biggest part of the work - dealing with large landowners.

    Lowry has held a series of public meetings and has posted a lot of information on her website.

  • Be thankful for those special ‘gifts’ you have this Christmas

     In the spirit of Christmas, I think it’s essential to take time to reflect on all of the presents in our lives.

    As the day draws near, our minds are filled with gift ideas and holiday engagements (and I am just as guilty), but I encourage you to stop and take a minute to recognize the priceless presents around you -- your parents, siblings, grandparents and friends. Because these can never be replaced once lost.
