Bullitt Central High School English III/AP English III and Drama Teacher Kevin Gose plans to run across the Commonwealth of Kentucky this summer to raise money and awareness for diabetes and healthy living.
His inspiration is a literal father figure.

SHEPHERDSVILLE - Serving the past three-plus years as a member of Bullitt Fiscal Court, John Bradshaw realized something very important to the people of the county.

With that, the Fourth District magistrate threw his hat into the ring as a Republican contender for the county judge’s office.
