  • Initial plan to establish mutual aid good start

     Erik Butler is saying all the right things and tackling all the right issues.

    Our assumption is that by the time you are reading this, Butler would have officially been hired as the new chief of the Southeast Bullitt Fire Department.

  • Deaths leave holes to be filled

     Holes in the soul.

    Those were the words of the minister conducting funeral services for Les Bandy on Monday afternoon.

    Starting year number 31, you get to know a lot of people. Some are elected officials who seem to dominate the press. Others may be individuals who quickly go about their work.

  • College loans put you in bad situation

      I’d like to say a few words about the president‚Äôs recent proposal to offer college students two free years at community college. 

    That’s great news, but what about all the students who have already graduated college?
