Today's Opinions

  • Some comments can ‘really’ be confusing, entertaining

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It’s time for another installment of those REALLY moments from the past few weeks.

    The first revolves around how businesses react to big events, such as the Super Bowl.

    One major restaurant said it would close at 7 p.m. on Sunday due to the Super Bowl. I can understand that one as the game started around 6:30 p.m.

    But another one drew my REALLY comment.

    It announced that it would close at 9 p.m. due to the Super Bowl. 

  • Stretch of horrid weather is perfect time to prepare for upcoming fishing season

     FRANKFORT, Ky. – With much of Kentucky covered in a sundae made of snow topped with a crust of ice, fishing season seems millennia away.

    The sun gets higher in the southern sky with each passing day; it is only a matter of time before this horrible weather pattern breaks. Use this dark and cold time to prepare for the inevitable coming of the spring fishing season.

  • BBB Hot Topics: February 2014

     Check out the latest scams and bad business in BBB’s February 2014 Hot Topics!

    1.    Don’t fall for the One Ring Scam! Here is how the scam works: Your cell phone rings once, then hangs up. To see who it was, you check the caller ID. It shows unknown or a long-distance area code you are not familiar with. Curious, you call back. Later, you find a fee on your cell phone bill, often $19.95 for a “premium service.”

  • Any bill must be assured that funding is available

     FRANKFORT - Would you purchase a home without knowing if you can afford it?

    Many of us would answer no, or not before we would check to see if we could pay for it.

    That statement would apply to debate over House Bill 154 this past week.

    This bill was stated to be a transparency bill, but a last-minute committee substitute placed requirements for additional training for local school officials.

  • Calendar should alleviate many of the concerns

     They served a valuable purpose, although many might beg to differ.

    But the concerns over early release days for Bullitt County Public School students will soon be a thing of the past.

    Instead, students will have the opportunity to enjoy several full days at home as the 2014-15 calendar will not have early release.

    Educators feels that allowing teachers a full day of work each month is more valuable as the district strives to move forward.

  • Must watch for signs of cyber attacks on your accounts

     In December, Target disclosed one of the biggest retail cyberattacks in history.

    Consumers across the country learned that, during the peak of the holiday shopping season, hackers carried out a massive data breach on the U.S. retailer, stealing roughly 40 million credit and debit card records and compromising the personal information, including names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses, of 70 million Target shoppers.

  • BBB Warns: Beware of Scammers using Kosair Charities Name

     BBB is warning local residents to beware of scammers who are using Kosair Charities’ good name! 

    A local resident received a call from someone claiming to be with the Firefighter’s Union, who said he was selling decals and seals for the Kosair Charities burn unit.

    There are several things wrong with this phone call:

    ·        First, local firefighters raise money for the Crusade for Children, not for specific entities.
