  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The outside learning environment in the center of Roby Elementary School has a new name.

    Mattie was a Bullitt County native, born March 12, 1906 to Henry and Susie Simmons Owens, Sr.

    Bowman’s Valley School Committee member Gwinn Hahn said the courtyard now bearing her name is a fitting tribute.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON — Just in time for summer visitors, the Little Free Library is now open at the Bernheim Forest.

    The idea took root in Beth Fox’s Mount Washington Elementary fourth grade classroom at the beginning of the school year.

    According to student Berlyn Jones, Fox brought the idea up to her class after hearing about another class donating items to a local hospital.

  •  CAMPBELLSVILLE – Kentucky’s 2017 Elementary Teacher of the Year, Kellie Jones of Taylor County’s Intermediate School, urged the teachers to whom she spoke at Campbellsville University to “keep your passion for teaching” and “Students today need passionate and energetic influence in their learning and in their lives.”

  •  BERNHEIM – In the past, Emma Rhodes has wowed audiences with her moves as a nationally acclaimed ballroom dancer.

    But on Monday, on the first night of the 2017 Bullitt County Fair, Rhodes found success on the runway, as she impressed the four judges to beat out 14 other contestants to be named Miss Bullitt County Fair.

    At the close of the two-hour competition under the pavilion, Rhodes was crowned the new queen by 2016 winner Erica Rhodes (no relation).

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - The show must go on…but it must have seven dedicated people.

    That’s how many members will be necessary to continue the Bullitt County Arts Council, or the organization will fold at the end of the year.

    The council officially voted to disband by 2018, with the stipulation added that BCAC will continue with enough people in place to properly manage the group.

    “We’re at a concerning level,” announced BCAC president Donna Burke.
