  • BBB Hot Topics: February 2016

     See the latest scams in BBB’s February 2016 Hot Topics

    1.    BBB has received several calls about fake government grants. Scammers tell local consumers they are eligible for a federal grant, because they pay their bills on time. All they have to do is pay an upfront fee. This is a scam.

  • Hats off to EMS, fire department

     On Dec. 30, 2015, Bullitt County EMS and Fire Department cam to my rescue, the situation was well under control in 10 minutes.

    My patient was getting more ill and needed a physician.

    The MES team consisted of a veteran EMS technician of 25 years. She, with a calm sense of urgency, instructed her partner, a young man in his early 20s.

  • Governor’s budget delivered with many good things

     The crucial work of crafting the state’s next two-year spending plan began in earnest this week as I joined my House colleagues in dissecting the details of the governor’s budget proposal that he offered on Tuesday, January 26, during a joint session of the House and Senate.

  • Take a bow

     It’s not time for a curtain call but there is much reason to be proud of a major, major economic development project.

    There are a lot of kudos to hand out but we’ll stop short of popping the cork on the champagne for a couple of years.

    There is no doubt that the light industrial growth along Highway 480 has been a godsend to Shepherdsville and Bullitt County.

  • Nichols Nick at it once again

      Unseasonably warm Springtime weather in Bullitt County may end abruptly,  and possibly permanently, due to an ultimatum written in groundhogese.

    As of Feb. 1, Bullitt Fiscal Court officials had not come to an agreement on the ultimatum presented by Nichols Nick, Bullitt County’s official groundhog.

    According to the groundhogese ultimatum, loosely translated and presented by county attorney John Wooldridge, Nick expressed concerns and made demands in relation to the safety of his job environment and his fellow vermin.

  • Bill hopes to bring death benefits to all first responders

     The Kentucky General Assembly completed Day 12 of the 2016 Regular Session this past Thursday. 

    The decision was made to cancel the Friday session so members could return home before the inclement weather arrived. I want to express my appreciation and gratitude to all of our dedicated transportation workers and our first responders who worked so hard to keep all of us safe this past weekend.

    Unfortunately, KSP Trooper Anson Blake Tribby was killed in an accident last Friday while attempting to offer assistance at an accident scene.

  • We have survived THE storm

      Ladies and gentleman of Bullitt County, be forewarned: The apocalypse is near!

    Actually, it’s the first significant accumulative snowfall of the season, but in Bullitt County, same thing.

    Seriously, people, if snow was so evil, then why did God make it so beautiful? Why does it appear in all of our Christmas decorations? Why are there snow globes?

    Snow is wonderful. Snow should make us smile, it is a gift, a natural gift, something unique that can’t be celebrated every day, or most days.
