SHEPHERDSVILLE - As Bullitt County prepares for the closing of The Shepherd’s Shelter and sees other organizations stepping up to fill the void, one helpful organization continues to stand the test of time and help others in need.
The Fellowship of Concern consists of representatives from area churches working together to assist others. The program has worked in the local community for 50 years.

SHEPHERDSVILLE -- He never applied for the position of school superintendent in 1966.
But Frank R. Hatfield went on to not only be superintendent of the Bullitt County Public School District but to also be one of the most influential educators in the state of Kentucky.
Hatfield died on Sunday.

That was former Mount Washington mayor Sidney Edward Griffin’s go-to campaign slogan and it was one he never lost touch with.
Sid, as most knew him, moved to Mount Washington around 1958. Not long after, he was asked to serve on the trustee board, similar to today’s city council. From 1961-1968, he served with five others to run the city. He lost the race to become the city’s first mayor, but won two years later. He held the title from 1969-1981.
