  • BBB Warns: Beware of Summer Vacation Scams

     Headed on a summer vacation? Whether to the beach, on a cruise, or something closer to home, the Better Business Bureau® (BBB) encourages travelers to use caution when making plans, booking hotels, and navigating unfamiliar destinations. Taking the right precautions ahead of time could save you time and money!

    BBB warns there are many potential scams during the vacation planning process and the trip itself.

    Planning:

  • Exercise your rights

     Election time! Exercise your right to vote! Vote for the candidate of your choice How many of us did not get to vote for the candidate of our choice in the Primary held on May 20? We were limited in our choice of candidates due to how we were registered to vote. Some were not allowed to vote at all because there were no independent candidates in the running. Is there anyone out there who thinks this is unfair?

  • Thanks from Scottish Rite

     For the past several years the Bullitt County Scottish-Rite Club has sponsored a Motor Rally/Fun Run. Motorcycles, Sand Bugs and Custom Cars of all kind, show up from through-out the state to have a fun day and contributed to a very worthy cause, “Challenged Needs Students of Bullitt County Schools.”

  • Thanks to the people

     I want to THANK all the people of Shepherdsville that let me put a sign in your yard, those that made a contribution to my campaign and those that voted for me as Mayor of Shepherdsville. Your support means a lot to me.

    I hope you continue to support me in November in the general election! I want to work for you the people that pay to keep our city moving forward.

    Again, thank you. “Gotta Have Faith”

  • Getting the facts straight

     In a recent ad in The Pioneer News, paid for by Jimmy Smothers, I was accused of receiving $150,000 from the City of Shepherdsville in return for a $500 piece of property.

    A few months ago, The Pioneer News also ran an article, quoting city council member Dana James and city attorney Joe Wantland, stating I had received $150,000 for a $500 easement. All of these claims are untrue. I challenge anyone to produce a canceled check proving otherwise.

  • Education can come in many ways, shapes

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - How do you grade a student’s education?

    Is it by the grades on the report card?

    Could it be by the scores on the ACT or other tests?

    Could it be by the manners a child shows in every day life?

    Could it be by the maturity gained and the common sense acquired to survive in life?

    Could it be by the number of friends a person has or the friends maybe on Facebook?

    Could it be that you really can’t grade a student until years after he or she has graduated from the school system?
