CLERMONT - Their stories may be different but they all have one thing in common - the passion to sing.
And they can sing.
Laura Terry, MaKayla Richardson and Jemma Williamson were crowned the 2013 Bullitt County Vocalists of the Year.
The competition was held during the recent Bullitt County Fair.
Even before Laura Terry was born, her mom knew she would either sing or dance.
“There was one song that would make me move in my mom’s belly,” Terry said.

HILLVIEW - Littering is a problem thatís all too common and 18-year-old North Bullitt High School graduate James Bacher saw a need to fix it.
“Every time I walked through my neighborhood or rode through the city, I would see trash on the ground,” he said.
Some people would make an effort to pick up trash, but Bacher said they would have to carry it home to dispose of it.
Bacher used what he saw as inspiration for his Eagle Scout project, creating and installing 27 trash cans throughout Hillview and Pioneer Village.
Before Shepherdsville City Park was the city park, it was home to the Watkins family.
James Watkins said from 1965-1998 his parents, Glenda and Lawrence Watkins, owned the land.
“We all just call that place home,” he said.
However, after a flood in 1997, the land was purchased by the city during a Federal Emergency Management Agency buyout to prevent future flooding and to create a city park, Watkins said.
In 1982, the family built a gazebo on the land and today it is still there, but is now known as the pavilion.
