    The inside of the government center will be decorated in full Christmas pageantry.

  •  LOUISVILLE -- It was a celebration. But it was also the beginning of the next phase in the life of the Bowman Valley School.

    The first phase into its restoration has been accomplished -- it has been saved.

    But the next quest will involve securing a lot of funding to make it the historical and educational piece many envision.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Old Mill Elementary has had an unofficial name change in support of their new educational strategy.

    Old Mill Academy, as principal Les McIntosh called it, recently introduced their “Creating Koalified Leaders” method to parents and community members.

    The program stems from the Franklin Covey program called “The Leader in Me”.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The land developed as a business industrial park is about to become the Field of Dreams.

    A new multi-million dollar sports complex is in its final planning stages.

    According to Mount Washington Mayor Barry Armstrong, the idea of the project had been tossed around for six or seven years.

    “We were overloading our current park and we were very limited on what we could offer,” he said.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON - The primary organization that opens its doors to assist homeless Bullitt Countians will shut its doors permanently by year’s end.

    The Shepherds Shelter, Inc, was first established as a faith-based organization in 2002. Since that time it has become a state-funded program offering temporary housing, self-sufficiency programs and overall help to struggling community members.

  •  HUNTERS HOLLOW - Over the past decade, there have been numerous television programs dedicated to the science of paranormal investigation, translating things that go bump in the night into possible evidence of afterlife.

    The programs range from the serious scientific approaches to the sensationalization of finding a ghost every two minutes.

    A Hunters Hollow couple is hoping to take their interest in the paranormal and lean it toward a more scientific approach, for the sake of learning more about the unknown, rather than seek fame and fortune.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Bullitt County just got a lot brighter with the addition of Brite Wholesale Electric Supply.

    Brite originated in Elizabethtown in 1984 with five employees. Today, the main store is still in Elizabethtown, but the numbers have grown to over 25 employees at three additional locations in Leitchfield, Bardstown and, as of June, Shepherdsville.

    “We are locally family owned and operated,” salesperson Dwight Morgan said. “Most of our employees grew up and live where they work.”

  •  LOUISVILLE -- Thousands of blue corduroy jackets are back in town for the National FFA Convention Wednesday, Oct. 28‚ through Saturday, Oct. 31.

    The convention attracts more than 60,000 attendees and generates $40 million of economic impact for the city of Louisville and the state.

    This closed event will utilize all the space at the Kentucky Exposition Center, the Kentucky International Convention Center as well as the KFC Yum! Center.

    Beyond the economic benefit, the convention will make an impact in the Louisville community. 

  •       The girl scouts turned lids into seating in their latest community service project.

          Girl Scouts Service Unit 667 donated a 6-foot bench to St. Francis Xavier Church made out of 400 pounds of plastic bottle lids they collected.

        After being approached with the idea by troop leader Angela Wells-Vereb in 2014, the Troop 1219 put together a plan to collect enough plastic to make a bench.
