     I would like to address the Bullitt County athletic directors, or the Board of Education, as to who sets the prices for high school basketball games.

    Every game that I have attended this year, the cost for admission has been $6 and that is for adults and students. College students event get a discount to attend games for their schools.

    There are weeks when there are two or three games at $6 admission that can get pricey, especially for teens who work hard for their money.

    These games can also be pricey for families who have multiple children.

    And, it is this negative tone that drives many people away from the political system.

    While this is being written well before the polls closed for the special election in the 49th District, we would guess that turnout would be 10 percent or less.

  • Keep your trash

     My name is Elizabeth Dennis Owen. I live on Flatlick Road. You don’t know me but there are times when you are driving by, you toss your garbage and it lands in my front yard.
