  •  LEBANON JUNCTION— Like every year, the Lebanon Junction Fire Department will lead the way for the annual Wall Street Park Festival Parade on Saturday, Sept. 30.  This year, though, they, along with the police department and EMT workers, will lead the way as the grand marshals.

    “We just haven’t honored them in any way,” committee member Allie Phillips said. “Even though they’re not going to do a float, they’re still going to ride on all their vehicles.”

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Kentucky Coalition for Healthy Communities, in association with the Bullitt Coalition for Recreation, Education and Wellness (C.R.E.W.), hosted the annual Walk/Run for Diabetes Awareness as the Shepherdsville City Park.

    A group of Kentucky counties compete each year to collect the most steps walked or ran within an hour, with pedometers used by each participant to count steps.

    This year KCHC and C.R.E.W. made a challenge to participants for 300,000 collective steps, far more than their usual goal of 100,000 steps.

  •  CLERMONT - After several attempts, the Kentucky Wineries Association picked a weekend with pleasant weather to celebrate their annual WineFest at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    Ten of the state’s best wineries were available to patrons for tastings and both glass and bottle purchases.

    This year’s event included a VIP area, where some of the best Kentucky wines were presented.

    Food and craft booths were also available to the patrons, along with live music.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE—Lions and dancers and murders; oh my!

    The annual Dancing for the Arts night, presented by the Bullitt County Arts Council, is back on Friday night and this time they’ve brought in a twister.

    This year’s “Wizard of Oz” themed show includes a script and a murder, but don’t fret! Local celebrities will still be dancing to raise money for scholarships to give local high school seniors perusing higher education in the arts.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - There are approximately 500 cases in the Bullitt County court system involving children abuse, neglect, and custody issues.

    For those children, life can be a strain, and very confusing as they sometimes move from home to home, trying to live a normal life while the courts determine their futures.

    The Bullitt County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) both help determine the children’s fate. And when they can, they do a little more.

  •  PIONEER VILLAGE - Any day can be a full day of play, even if it’s not the longest day.

    The Bullitt County Coalition for Recreation, Education and Wellness (C.R.E.W.) will host its first annual Family Fest event, which takes the place of its former Longest Day of Play event.

    C.R.E.W. member and health educator Daniel Crum said the event was moved from a hot summertime afternoon to a day in September in hopes of more pleasant weather.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual First Responders Appreciation Luncheon at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    The event is held to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11, with many Chamber members sponsoring meals for the honored guests.

    Zoneton Fire chief Rob Orkies was the keynote speaker, while Zoneton chaplain Bro. Bob Kendrick performed the invocation.

    Representatives from each Bullitt County first responders branch were presented with commemorative wooden plaque from the Chamber.

  •  BARDSTOWN – The esteemed Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame today inducted three individuals into its hallowed ranks and bestowed its prestigious Parker Beam Lifetime Achievement Award on one of the most monumental icons in the modern era of Bourbon. 

    “This year’s inductees are joined by the fact that they’re all leading figures behind the growing global renaissance of Kentucky Bourbon,” said Eric Gregory, president of the Kentucky Distillers’ Association. “Each, in their own way, has helped shape our current success.

  •   Autumn is just days away! Fall in Kentucky is one of my favorite times of the year because we get to see God’s magnificent canvas take color. The leaves are sure to be pretty with all of the rain and cool weather we’ve gotten. I am looking forward to one awesome “firework show” by nature. Autumn is the perfect time to load the family up and road trip. October provides ample opportunities including fall break to road trip. To help you start making plans NOW, I offer a few of my favorite places around the Bluegrass.

  •  In Kentucky, it’s difficult to picture the threat of a hurricane. Yes, there are tornados and ice storms, but how do you react when 130 miles per hour winds are headed your way and your wife is 39 weeks pregnant? How about when you and your dog just became Floridians a year ago and your children and grandchildren keep calling to make sure you’re prepared?

    For 74-year-old Joyce Antons, the worried phone calls from family up north sealed the deal.
