  • BBB tips for Mother's Day shopping

     Mother’s Day is right around the corner! If you are ordering flowers, beware of petal pushers!  Unscrupulous florists will place fake listings in local phone directories, and when you call you are unknowingly forwarded to an out-of-town telemarketing company. The telemarketer takes your credit card information and forwards your order to an area florist. The telemarketer takes a processing fee, and a percentage of the total order. Later, you realize you were charged more than you had planned, and the flowers are not as ordered – if delivered at all!

    1.    BBB is receiving calls about Free Government Grants! Scammers offer government money because a person pays bills on time, is a good citizen, or was picked in a random drawing. To receive the grant, the person must send fees via prepaid card or a wire transfer. There is no grant!

  • Thanks to Pioneer News

     On behalf of the Bullitt County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Board of Directors, staff and volunteers, we would like to extend our appreciation and gratitude for the support of The Pioneer News.

    Awareness is vital in educating the community of issues surrounding Bullitt County’s abused and neglected children.

    With the help of The Pioneer News, we have been able to spread the word of our program’s need for volunteers and funding.

  • Vote for Robinson

     I would like to ask all my family and friends to please vote to retain our friend and neighbor Monica Robinson for our County Attorney.

    Monica has worked very hard these last four years as our county attorney and has saved the Bullitt County taxpayers thousands and thousands of tax dollars. Monica loves the Lord, her family, friends and neighbors. Monica is very active in her church and our community in many areas like CASA, Dare to Care and AARP to name a few. Monica has lived in Bullitt County all her life. 

  • Vote for Wooldridge

     I worked for John Wooldridge for 32 years before I retired.

    As his secretary, I saw an attorney who worked long hours doing a lot of research and study so he was well prepared to represent his clients in court.

    John has been an attorney for a long time and he knows what is needed to get a job done well.

    On a personal note, John is also very down to earth. He enjoys gardening, hunting and fishing, which helps him to identify with people on many levels.

  • Vote for Robinson

     Monica Robinson cares about the children of Bullitt County. As the County Attorney Monica is responsible for the prosecution of parents and caregivers who abuse or neglect the children.

    I believe there have been approximately 500 new cases of abuse and neglect each year since Monica became County Attorney. As a volunteer with the court system I have seen Monica in action in court. Monica has allays shown her concern for the children and their future. I have learned a lot from Monica’s hard work in the courtroom and have so much respect for her.
