  • Look at ALL expenses related to college

     When it comes to comparing the costs of various colleges, remember that on the broadest level, costs are divided into billable and non-billable costs. To save money, follow these tips from the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

    Billable costs are what you have to pay to start college. At a minimum, these costs include tuition and fees. If you’re going to live in school-provided housing, billable costs will also include room and board. These costs are called billable because the school will bill you for them.

  • Rubberized tracks part of schools’ mission

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East doesn’t want to get left in the dust.

    At a recent Mount Washington City Council meeting, Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr and track/cross country coach Lenny Raley asked the officials  to consider contributing to efforts in raising $15,000 to rubberize the high school track this summer.

    “It desperately needs to be rubberized. We have had several injuries this year,” Raley said.

    If they were able to get this done, they could hold track meets in the county and community events.

  • 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!
