  • GOOD SPIRITS: Conference hopes to take away stress in your life

     SHEPHERDSVILLE— In the fast-paced, high stress world so many people live in, trying to find a way to slow down and relax is often difficult.

    But, Bullitt County recently hosted an event that was all about finding a more peaceful life.

    The Festival of Healing and Spiritual Awareness served as chance for people to gain a spiritual recharge, said organizer Virginia Gilpin.

    “This is a place where we learn how to stop and breathe,” she said. “Then we have to go back out there.”

  • CIRCUS

     CLERMONT - It’s the greatest show on earth, or in this case, of the earth.

    Cirque Mundial (or Worldwide Circus) made its first visit to the area, featuring amazing talent from around the world.

    The traveling troupe featured four shows at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    Some of the traditional circus acts were included, from trapeze artists and jugglers to Woo Woo the Clown.

    Other unusual acts included unicycle riding, cylindric balancing acts and poodle acrobatics.

  • Bullitt Central greenhouse class set to open facility for business

     Bullitt Central High School students in the greenhouse classes are learning business and agriculture principles while getting their hands dirty.

    Students in these classes learn how to operate a greenhouse business, fill the greenhouse with products and then sell the products. Students work together to complete every job in the greenhouse, while building teamwork skills.

    Everything in the Green Paw Greenhouse is “Kentucky Proud” and “Bullitt Central Proud.”

  • National Library Week to be celebrated locally

     This week, the Bullitt County Public Library (BCPL) joins libraries in schools, campuses, and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the dynamic changes that are happening in today’s libraries. Libraries today aren’t only a place of quiet study and a place to check out books, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate, explore new technologies like 3D printing, or just relax with friends old and new.

  • BOOM

      NICHOLS— It’s rare to find a place where guns are openly welcome these days but, at the biannual gun show at Knob Creek Gun Range, guns are the center of attention.

    Travelers from around the country journeyed to the range to experience America’s largest machine gun shoot and military gun show.

    Every hour, participants lined up for the opportunity to shoot a variety of machine guns at barrels and old cars. Shooters raced the clock to finish obstacle courses involving rolling targets, flying objects and odd spaces.

  • Gala will again help fund school projects

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Teachers always have wonderful ideas that may be outside the box.

    And, many times, they are definitely outside the budget.

    Since 2011, the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education has been rewarding educators who have special ideas that may not be funded in the budget.

    During the past five funding cycles, the private organization has given grant money totaling over $57,000 to Bullitt County educators.

    The main fund-raiser for the group has always been held during the Derby season.

  • John Asher to be guest speaker at Boy Scout fund-raising dinner

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Paroquet Springs Conference Centre will host this year’s Lincoln Heritage Boy Scout fund-raising dinner on Tuesday, April 12.

    John Asher of Churchill Downs will serve as keynote speaker.

    The leadership team of John Snider, Jose Cubero and Gary McGruder are recruiting a strong campaign team as they aim for the event’s $32,000 goal. 

    The annual dinner will offer a social hour and silent auction for the over 150 business leaders anticipated to attend. 

  • War on Heroin: Standing-room only crowd listens to new approach to solving issue

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It will not be a problem that law enforcement officials can solve.

    And it won’t be a situation that medication is the answer.

    Most certainly, counseling alone will not alleviate the country of this growing cause of death.

    However, a multi-faceted approach has begun in Bullitt County to combat the issue of heroin abuse.

    Officials with Seven Counties Services unveiled a new comprehensive recovery approach before a standing-room only crowd on Thursday.

  • Walk provides exercise, talks with doctors

     CLERMONT -- You’ve been told the message.

    You know it is something that you need to do.

    But you really don’t have the desire to do it.

    Would it help if your doctor joined in?

    If that message was to go outside and get some exercise, a national program coming to Bullitt County might just be your answer.

    On the second Saturday of each month through November, KentuckyOne Health, Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest and the Bullitt County Health Department will join forces to present Walk with a Doc.
