Opinion

  •   A list of hot topics by the Better Business Bureau for the month of June 2012. For more information visit www.bbb.org.

    1.    Beware of the Microsoft Scam! Local consumers tell BBB they are getting calls from people who say they are with Microsoft. These scammers are telling consumers they could be hacked then they offer extra security for a fee. That’s when they steal the victim’s personal information.

  •  College is not for everyone.  There are many jobs that do not require a college degree that will provide a really fine living and enable a person to support themselves and their family. 

  •  The news coming out of Shepherdsville City Hall has been wonderful.

  •  It’s always a busy time of the year in early June as several of the premiere festival events are held in Bullitt County.

  •  Back in my mother and dad’s days, times were a lot harder than they are now. You could not get any work to do. My mother and dad had a house burn down. They came home from church and their house had burned down. There was not enough insurance to cover the house plus the contents in the house. They had to live in a tent until dad built a house to live in.

  •  May and June are times when governmental leaders are faced with the task to determine how much money they will have to spend and how they will spend it.

  •  My name is Robert Huff. I will always remember my mother, not only on “Mother’s Day” but every day. She was a wonderful mother, wife to my dad, a friend to all people she came in contact with. She was always there to give help to anyone who needed help. My mother and dad were God-fearing people. When the church doors opened they were there and I might add that we children went to church together and were baptized.

  •  Kentucky’s tourism industry is once again gearing up for the summer travel season. As someone who has worked in the industry for more than 30 years, I believe we have many good reasons to be optimistic about 2012.

  •  Maybe it is only fitting that just prior to Memorial Day, one of the county’s most visible fighters for the veterans passed away.

  •  Master Chief Joseph Robert Greenwell, Jr. graduated from Bullitt Central High School, Shepherdsville, Kentucky in June of 1976. After trying to major in Mathematics at University of Kentucky and working as an Ironworker prior to enlisting in the United States Navy on 16 August 1981 under the delayed entry program and entered Recruit training at RTC Great Lakes, Illinois on 11 January 1982.

  •  Don’t have anything to do on Friday evening? Come out to North Bullitt High School from 7 p.m. Friday until 7 a.m. on Saturday for the annual American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

  •  It is a special weekend for graduating seniors from Bullitt County high schools.

  •  Although the ballot may appear to be small on Tuesday, it is your duty to get out to the polls and vote.

  •  When candidates running for office come to your door, it appears one line won’t be used.

  •   Seldom do you have an opportunity to praise elected officials.

  •  Whether you are ordering flowers, shopping for custom jewelry, or arranging for a special spa day, be a smart consumer this Mother’s Day!

    BBB sees lots of scams that focus on holiday shopping, and is warning consumers to proceed with caution before falling victim to a Mother’s Day vender scam, especially when shopping online.

  •  After three decades of service to the financial industry, Susan Bradbury has called it a career.
