Can anyone tell me how they came across a "rating" for People's Bank of Bullitt County in KY?  I have checked Bauer's, Bankrate, and the FDIC Bank Find sites and can't bring up any info for this bank.  All I can find is the name was changed to "People's Bank of KY" on 5-10-07 but no ratings on it.  If Ken reads this, I would like to know how he found a 3 Star rating for that bank.  Maybe it has a different name for the headquarters state.  Thanks for any info you can provide since I am interested in banks and CUs in KY.  Their website still comes up as People's Bank of Bullitt County, KY.
