  •  HILLVIEW - The Hillview Recreation Department’s latest project is a big splash.

    Many interested kids and their families turned out for the ribbon cutting at the city’s new splash park located next to the Recreation Center.

    The park contains a dunk bucket, a giant mushroom and animals that squirt water, along with a shower head. Patrons push a large tube to start the waterworks.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON — In an ever-changing world, preserving history is becoming more and more important.

    For one group of local high schoolers, their effort in saving a piece of Mount Washington history earned them statewide recognition by the Kentucky Heritage Commission.

    Named for the first executive director of the commission, the Ida Lee Willis Memorial Foundation Historic Grassroots Award honors those who take on the challenge of preserving local historic resources using their personal time and resources.

  •  The Tampa Bay Area was our choice for a family vacation this summer. Lots of factors weighed in to that decision. 

    The first being that Allegiant Airlines just started flying from Louisville to Florida, and they offer some amazing bargains. Four of us flew round trip for $700. Allegiant may be an economy airline but their customer service is first class!

  • Frank E. Simon Park in Shepherdsville turned into an inflatable village as part of the 2017 Bullitt Blast celebration!

    Also available was the rock climbing wall, numerous booths and games and the traditional 25-cent ice cream cones presented by Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    Multiple bands played through the weekend including Junction Creek, Jeni Carr, Ray Glenn and The Josh Goodlett Band.

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

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

  •  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.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - More changes are taking place, but the fun will remain the same at the annual Bullitt Blast and Shepherdsville City Fair.
