  •  The North Bullitt Lions Club donated $300 to Sharon Hand, director of the Hillview Emergency Response Team (HERT).

    Representing HERT were Sharon Hand, Cindy Burns, Pam Burden, Gary Jackson and Carl Payne (a Lions Club member and  HERT volunteer).

    “The money is needed, timely and much appreciated,” said Hand.

    This will go to tools and equipment needed. This is yet another example of the North Bullitt Lions Club giving back to the community.

    North Bullitt Lions formed in 1972 and has served the community for 55 years.

  •  Kentuckians planning for higher education will find “The College Circuit,” a booklet published by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA), to be a useful resource.

    It can be used by students ranging in age from middle school to adults. Parents and counselors can also use it to help their students plan and pay for college. The booklet includes information about careers, college preparation, state and federal financial aid, tips for parents, online resources and a template for setting up a personal college plan.

  •  First Baptist Church of Shepherdsville hosted its annual Holy Week services, which run through Friday at Noon.

    On Monday, St. Aloysius deacon Ted Luckett brought the message and the St. Aloysius choir led the singing.

    The services begin at noon and conclude by 12:30 p.m., with a light lunch served immediately after the worship service.

    Each day includes different speakers from St. Aloysius Catholic, Hebron Presbyterian, Davidson Memorial United Methodist, Family Worship Center and First Baptist.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON—Kicking off their focus of the “service” virtue, Eastside Middle issued a challenge for students to raise $2,000 to donate to St. Baldricks, a non-profit organization which funds childhood cancer research. Assistant principal Kyle Buege agreed to shave his head for St. Baldrick’s if the students met the goal during the two-day challenge. The students replied by raising $3,500.

  •  HILLVIEW — She came looking for assistance.

    A problem she never imagined that would enter her family had happened.

    Now, she was hoping that several agencies attending a community forum on substance abuse providers could lend some assistance.

    Recently, a community forum was held with providers, such as Our Lady of Peace, Centerstone, The Brooke, Reach, Boys and Girls Haven and 180 Degree Counseling, present to give some advice and information.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - They’ve brought happy endings, new visions and community support to the Shepherdsville community for more than seven decades.

    However, without any new vision, and lacking that same community support, the Shepherdsville Lions Club will begin proceedings to close its doors by June 30. Members unanimously voted on the decision during the club’s March meeting.

    In recent months the Lions made a frantic push to remain open, inviting new members to join and even take over the administrative positions of long-time members.

  •  Roby Elementary School was drawn as the first week winner in the 2017 TELL Kentucky Survey.

    The school received $500 when Commissioner of Education Dr. Stephen Pruitt randomly drew the name from a hat.

    According to the Kentucky Department of Education, every school that reaches a 50 percent response rate is entered into a drawing for a $500 cash award for the school’s use.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE—Stitches and patterns and fabric, oh my!

    The annual Quilter’s Day Out brought together sewers from across Kentuckiana to show off their work, share tips and shop for their next projects.

    Held at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre, the show featured booths from 14 guilds and 24 vendors.

    Throughout the day, participants were able to listen to presentations by Kentucky State Coordinator for Quilts of Valor Nancy Cann and local instructor Pam Shartzer.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON—When Mount Washington resident Elmer Newkirk told his wife he’d brought home another woman last fall, she wasn’t expecting that woman to be in a box.

    To be fair, Newkirk wasn’t expecting the box to be someone’s ashes when he first saw it either.

    “I was leaving my storage unit and saw a pile of discarded things in the lot,” he said. “That caught my eye because I thought it was a jewelry box.”

  •  From looking at silent auction items to watching “celebrity” models such as John Barbagallo strut on the runway, a large crowd appeared to be very entertained at the annual Irene Carroll Style Show and Scholarship Luncheon.

    The Bullitt County Women’s Club sponsors this annual event.
