  •  ZONETON - Maybe middle school students would get into Shakespearian theatre more if it wasn’t for those long drives during field trips.

    Thanks to the Louisville-based Kentucky Shakespeare and its education program, the field trip can come to the schools.

    Zoneton Middle recently hosted artists Megan Massie and Tony Milder to the school, where they performed “Boy Meets Girl Meets Shakespeare,” a conglomerate of scenes from three plays including “Macbeth,” “The Tempest” and “Romeo and Juliet.”

  •  The damp Monday weather didn’t dampen the spirits of those celebrating local Memorial Day services.

    The annual county service in Shepherdsville was moved into the Bullitt County Courthouse, with members of the American Legion Post 157 placing a wreath in front of a plaque honoring the military.

    Dirk “Mac” McCoy was the honorary guest speaker, representing the American Legion.

    The rain stayed mostly away during the annual ceremony held outside at the Lebanon Junction Post Office, hosted by VFW Post 8293.

  •   North Bullitt High School senior Mindy Greenwell, 17, and sophomore Miranda Keedy, 14, have been honored by the Kentucky Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for their eco-art.

    The youth were recognized with framed plaques by DEP Director Larry C. Taylor and KY EXCEL Coordinator John Eisiminger during a ceremony in the NBHS College and Career Center Café.

    “By creating such beautiful works of art out of recyclable materials, you have raised awareness about the necessity of environmental conservation,” Taylor noted.

  •  HEBRON ESTATES - Despite coming from the ceiling of the gymnasium rather than the sun, the light was still shining brightly upon Bullitt County’s heroes.

    The annual Bullitt County Relay for Life saw big changes this year, with a move to a Saturday night and the first time ever held indoors due to inclement weather.

    Thanks to efforts by the volunteer staff, the Relay still took place and remained a success. A large part of the credit goes to the survivors and caregivers who annually attend the event.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Former Bullitt County resident Gary Harrington never thought he would be homeless. But after about four years of bouncing from place to place, that’s where he found himself.

    That was recently when the 65-year-old Vietnam veteran had some help in securing a place of his own.

    Harrington contacted Volunteers of America after someone at the local Shepherd’s Shelter told him they help veterans in his situation.

    He was able to find an apartment in Louisville.

  • It was a time to reflect.

    It was a time to celebrate.

    And it was a time to honor the men and women who serve the community as members of the Zoneton Volunteer Fire Department.

    On this particular day, the spotlight was on Station 2 in Brooks, which was celebrating its 25th anniversary.

    More specifically, it was a time to honor Maj. Garry Key, a volunteer who has spent over 30 years with the department.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Roby Elementary students looked professional for their guests during a Career Day event hosted in the school library.

    Instructor Tina Contreras said the participating students developed both listening and speaking skills while planning the event, which included area business representatives.

    Business participants included Simplex Grinnell engineer Mike Clark, cheerleading gym owner Samantha Alongi, Susan Estes with the Kentucky Education Association and Rep. Linda Belcher.

  •  Bullitt Central students received history lessons through the school’s Drama Club.

    “Edelweiss” was performed by the club in three public shows at the Bullitt Central auditorium.

    The play, based in World War II Nazi-era Germany, is about the League of German Girls, the girls’ portion of the Hitler Youth movement, and their underlying Nazi defiance.

    The Drama Club also performed the play for Bullitt Lick Middle students.

    The play was directed by Drama Club sponsor Sara Anderson.

  •  The family of Bill Breeden was joined by hundreds of friends as a special monument was dedicated to the community leader.

    It was unveiled during the Mount Washington Spring Festival, which Bill coordinated for years while serving with the Lions Club.

    It is located in the city park area by the fountain.

  •  CLERMONT - Southeast Bullitt Fire Department continued its efforts to become a community-friendly organization by hosting its first open house for the public.

    The event included free burgers and hot dogs, bouncies for the kids and a dunking booth, as well as emergency demonstrations performed by the firefighters.

    SEB staff members also offered a tour of the facility located on Clermont Road near Bernheim Forest.
