  • Daughter grows up so quickly

     It finally dawned on me. My little girl was growing up.

    It was on a Tuesday afternoon. It was election day and I was taking my daughter, Amanda Jean, to the polling place for the first time.

    She was already legal to drive. But now she was legal to allow her views to be expressed on a paper ballot.

    Not only was she able to vote but she was also quickly approaching graduation day.

    You ponder what your children might become. With Amanda, that future has definitely not been determined.

  • It’s Fair Time

     It is midway through the Bullitt County Fair but there is plenty of time to go out and enjoy the many sights and sounds.

    The annual fair, which is operated and run by a totally volunteer board, runs through Saturday evening.

    This year, visitors will see some improvements to the facility, especially those watching the various pageants under the pavilion.

    When your major revenue generator is subject to the wishes of Mother Nature, it is difficult to predict the success of your county fair.

  • No fees noble effort worth considering

     Maybe it was a final effort to make a difference.

    Superintendent Dr. Keith Davis recently proposed a “no fee” zone for elementary and middle school students.

    The idea was pretty simple -- students would not be required to go out and purchase school supplies for their elementary and middle school years.

    They would also not be subjected to any class fees -- with the exception of Chromebooks and some field trips.
