  • Holiday events to fill nights in three cities

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - With the turkey leftovers consumed and the shopping frenzy of Black Friday merely an after-thought on the credit cards, several Bullitt County communities are gearing up to kick off the holiday season.
        This weekend will feature festivities in Shepherdsville, Mount Washington and Lebanon Junction. Hillview hosted its Winterfest celebration prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Giving Thanks

     While many were enjoying the Thanksgiving day holiday at home, dozens of volunteers gathered at First Baptist Church in Shepherdsville and at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church between Shepherdsville and Mount Washington.

    The mission of this day was to make sure several hundred families had a hot, delicious Thanksgiving meal.

    For years, volunteers at both churches, along with groups like Scout Troop 848, have worked to prepare meals for those in need in the community.

  • Scouting for Food

     Dozens of volunteers recently gathered at the Mount Washington City Hall Annex Building to help sort, box and ship food items collected during the Boy Scouts of Amercia’s Scouting for Food drive.

  • Local pantries looking to replenish supplies

      MOUNT WASHINGTON - After working most of his life and earning a decent wage, Jeffrey Nutgrass of Mount Washington found himself out of work in July. 

  • Grudge Match

     HILLVIEW - The Hillview Police and Zoneton Fire Departments from the city of Hillview recently went to battle against each other on the basketball floor.

    The event was all in the name of charity as the proceeds will be used to fund the Operation Santa and the Crusade for Children.

    The game took place at the Hillview Community Center court.

  • Veteran's Day 2011

     Major Tim Starke didn’t think he would get to attend the annual Overdale Elementary Veteran’s Day salute.

    However, his unit returned home recently and Starke was once again a major part of the school celebration.

    But on Friday, his son, Ben, a preschool student at Overdale, also played a role. Wife and mom, Heidi, is a teacher at the school.
