  • Weekend effort aims to make waterways safer

     FRANKFORT — Boaters can feel safer during the upcoming holiday weekend as conservation officers with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources join other law enforcement agencies for Operation Dry Water June 30-July 2. 

    Operation Dry Water is a national campaign to educate the public about boating under the influence. The increased law enforcement presence around Kentucky’s lakes and rivers will serve as reminders for people not to boat impaired - the leading contributing factor in recreational boating deaths.

  • Local Democrats oppose DC shooting

    The Bullitt County Democratic Party adamantly condemns the shooting of GOP US House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Staffers and Police Officers this morning while playing baseball.

    Whatever the reason is behind this action, this type of violence is unacceptable. We ask for prayers for their healing.

  • Go to the fair next week

     If anyone has any connections with Mother Nature, maybe you can put a plug in for the Bullitt County Fair, set for June 12-17.

    The fair has a whole lot of rides, games and attractions. However, super hot weather or rainy skies can quickly cause havoc on the group’s biggest form of revenue.

    We hope -- no matter the weather -- will take the opportunity to venture down to the county fair next week. There’s plenty of things to do and the parking is always free.
