  • There are still good people who help others

     There is still goodwill in the world. I want to take this opportunity to thank my saviors the other night‚Äîthe Burkheads.

    On Monday night I went out to Kings Church Road to cover a fire. Long story short, I pulled over too far let the fire trucks pass and got my car stuck for several hours in the snow.

    There were a couple of people that passed me and asked if I was OK, but this man and his son were the only two that attempted to help me get my car out. 

  • Road plan puts county on right path to future

     It may one of the most promising things to come out of county government in the past seven years.

    A committee formed by Bullitt County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts will meet with legislators in Frankfort on Thursday.

    They will be equipped with a plan for the future in terms of transportation projects.

    Is it the perfect document?  No.

    Are there still other road projects which might be needed in the future? Yes.

    Is it a good start? Yes.

  • No good choice on snow days

     If the state sees things like the local school district sees things, it might be easy to make up some of the days lost due to snow, ice and cold this year.

    However, without knowing what the state will decide, Bullitt County Public School Board officials had the task of making a no-win situation. And, any decision would be sure to jack up those who have plenty of comments on the social media.

    With 13 days to make up, board officials opted to use this Friday and next Monday. The final day - barring any other missed days - would be June 6.

  • Jailer takes care of issue

     On Tuesday the 28th the weather was bad, cold as the Arctic Pole, I noticed when driving out Armstrong just South of Barbara sue Lane, debris all over the road in the ditch and stuck on the fence.

    I called Martha Knox, our jailer, about the trash. In less than an hour she sent inmates from the jail and cleaned it up. I was more than pleased with her prompt response. She is truly a good jailer and truly a public servant.

    Also I would like to commend the road department for good service in cleaning our roadways. They are great public servants.
