  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE - The spirit of Christmas is alive and well early on in December, according to Louisville resident Terry Bowes.

    He wanted to thank members of the Shepherdsville Public Works Department and Shepherdsville Police units for their assistance in retrieving his boat from the Salt River.

    Bowes was selling the boat and put it on the river to show his potential customers that it worked. He put in at the ramp behind Paroquet Springs Conference Centre around 5 p.m. on a Monday night.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON - As a young tike, Bullitt East sophomore Nick Chapman enjoyed exploring Mount Washington Elementary School’s arboretum, so it was rather fitting when he got to give back by doing his Eagle Scout project there last spring.

    It had become overgrown, so the 16-year-old took a crew of about 11 people and they cut limbs, ripped out old plants and flowers and added new mulch. In addition, they added a bench.

    “It’s important to show that you care about things,” the member of Troop 100 said.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON - Crossroads Elementary fifth grader Hailee Arnett lost one of her best friend’s this year - her mom. 

    And although this Christmas will still be tough, a local business’ charity will help her family to have a good holiday.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON-- Trying to make the world a better place for all to live in is defintely a philosophy that resonates with 16 year–old Billy Brown.

    He recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout (Troop 100) for a project he did last spring to spruce up Mount Washington Elementary School.

    The principal, Terri Lewis, made suggestions on what he could help with and Brown chose to relandscape the flagpole as his project because he thought it cpuld be a new challenge.

    “It was something new. I thought it would be interesing,” he said.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - It was educational. It was a fundraiser. It might become a new holiday tradition. And it made the principal pucker up.

    And it was summed up in three simple words: Pig verses robot.

    Bullitt Central High School hosted an in-school fundraising event pitting Penelope the Pig, a school resident cared for by the agriculture department, verses The War Pig, a mobile robot created by students in the new Robotics class.

  •  Greg Hilbert may not have a lively job, but his product is something we will all eventually require.

    He is a casket maker.

    It started out as a hobby for him a couple of years ago, but after leaving his job of 20 plus years as a toolmaker, he began to pursue it as a business.

    Hilbert said he became intrigued with the wooden boxes after his grandparents purchased them before they passed. They were able to get ones that were like the ones he makes that were reasonably priced and stored them in their basement.

  •  The holiday season is finally here! 

    Are you feeling that urge to get-a-way from the hustle and bustle of it all and spend some much needed family time together? 

    Pigeon Forge, Tenn., could be described as “Santa’s temporary North Pole in the U.S.” and is the perfect destination for families to re-connect. 

  •  PIONEER VILLAGE - Like other police agencies in the community, the Pioneer Village Police Department will become Santa’s Helpers this December - with the help of the community.

    Chief D.J. Reynolds said the Santa’s Helpers program will start slow this year by helping six families from Maryville Elementary School.

    Reynolds said information on the children and their clothing sizes and gift requests are available at Becknell Hall.

    “These people need help and we need to help them,” said Reynolds.

    The Mount Washington resident said he contacted former Crossroads Principal Kim Sego to see what he could do for the school.
