Fear Abounds

Holly Dye

Have you ever stopped to think about the experience of someone living under the control of another? A woman beaten by her husband, but choosing not to leave because of finances, pride, and shame. A child living in a home littered with drug paraphernalia, visited frequently by members of that community’s underbelly. Wondering if this is what life is and surrendering hope before it’s time.

When you look at those employed in positions to help people, do you think of protection as their “job”, feeling glad “somebody” does it? If you are in a position with the power to chart the course of a life, does cynicism creep in after years of seeing the same thing and predicting the tragic, yet prolonged outcome you have seen time and time again?

Law enforcement officers PROTECT and SERVE. Social workers HELP and PROTECT. Therapists LISTEN and HEAL. Advocates give VOICE and HOPE. What is the role of community members? When we think of Continue reading Fear Abounds

City of Berea is Applying for a Grant to Upgrade Sewer Service.

BMU

Berea Municipal Utilities is applying for a Grant through the State Division of Local Government to upgrade sewer service in some Berea neighborhoods. Working with the Bluegrass Area Development District we have generated a random list of customers where we are required to do a face-to-face survey. This survey is required to qualify for the Grant. This Grant money would lessen the required investment the City and Berea Utilities will have to make to complete the sewer improvements.

We have mailed this survey to many of the customers in question. If you have received this survey in the mail, please fill it out and send it in to Berea Municipal Utilities at the address below or drop it off at our office drop box. We Continue reading City of Berea is Applying for a Grant to Upgrade Sewer Service.
