  • BBB tips on Giving Tuesday

     From collection kettles to toy drives to end-of-the-year tax deductions, the spirit of the holidays means giving to favorite causes and to those less fortunate. American charities receive one-third of their annual donations during the holiday season.

    With that in mind, several charities started Giving Tuesday to follow the busy shopping weekend after Thanksgiving (Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday). Giving Tuesday falls on November 29 this year.

  • It happened in November

     We will look back 25, 50, 75, and 99 years to capture glimpses of what was happening in Bullitt County in each of these years. Today we will focus on the month of November.

     

    1991 - 25 Years Ago.

    Lori Mann laughed as Julie Adams, who had recently lost her two front teeth, resorted to using her fingers while bobbing for apples at the St. Aloysius carnival. John Roberts took the picture.

  • Some Thanksgiving poetry

    A day before Thanksgiving Eve, and at computer: Frazzled Steve.
    A longer weekend, hopes to leave, but must complete thine annual jaunt.
    Struggling hard to find some words while dreaming ‘bout the tasty birds,
    A meal awaits, with family nerds who, all about thine job, will taunt.
    Thou digress - the work awaits. “’Tis hunger tricks,” my mind doth haunt.
    Turkey sandwich, thou doth want.

    Best that I try to remember, all those stories in November

  • Linda a public servant

     Thank God that our folks who were not all happy with the outcome of the election did not react like many in nation by disrupting the lives of their fellow man by seizing the streets protesting. If life gives you a lemon, make lemonade, for 4 days and nights they have disrupted our nation apparently they never work or go to school to improve their lifestyle. Instead of being negative look at what they could have done for our nation, volunteering to clean up their neighborhoods.

  • Thanks for DARE support

     On behalf of the Bullitt Co. Sheriff’s Office we would like to thank Everyone who supported our D.A.R.E. Chili Supper. 

    You may have made a donation for the raffle, gave money or just came and ate. Your generosity was greatly appreciated. Without the support of the community, we could not have the D.A.R.E program. We would also like to thank the First Baptist Church for the use of their hall, the Bullitt Co. Women’s Club and the employees of the Sheriff’s Office. 

  • Elections are over... now time to move on

     Nov. 8 is behind us. Now, let the healing begin.

    With the votes being cast and the public having made its choice, it is time for a healing to take place both in our nation -- but more importatly, in our community.

    We’ll take some time to do more analysis down the road. But what is needed now is an effort to bring our community together.

    After any election, there are hard feelings. Things are said as part of campaign rhetoric. And, this year seemed to take on the personal feelings displayed at the national level.
