  •  HILLVIEW - Littering is a problem thatís all too common and 18-year-old North Bullitt High School graduate James Bacher saw a need to fix it.

    “Every time I walked through my neighborhood or rode through the city, I would see trash on the ground,” he said.

    Some people would make an effort to pick up trash, but Bacher said they would have to carry it home to dispose of it.

    Bacher used what he saw as inspiration for his Eagle Scout project, creating and installing 27 trash cans throughout Hillview and Pioneer Village.

  • Shepherdsville native Bethany Griffin has always enjoyed the musings of Edgar Allan Poe. So it was only natural that she would follow in his literary footsteps.
    Her series, the Red Death Saga, is about a plague that wipes out humanity in the 1880s. She was inspired by Poe's short story "The Masque of Red Death."
    "I like that (his work is) really dark, but creepy and fun," Griffin said.

  • Before Shepherdsville City Park was the city park, it was home to the Watkins family.

    James Watkins said from 1965-1998 his parents, Glenda and Lawrence Watkins, owned the land.

    “We all just call that place home,” he said.

    However, after a flood in 1997, the land was purchased by the city during a Federal Emergency Management Agency buyout to prevent future flooding and to create a city park, Watkins said.

    In 1982, the family built a gazebo on the land and today it is still there, but is now known as the pavilion.

  • Ashlie Gauthier describes herself as a girly-girl who loves to dress up and be onstage.

    “I love to make the audience smile,” Gauthier said.

    Being that this was one of Gauthier’s first pageants she was nervous, but excited.

    “I’d been looking forward to it for a long time,” she said.

  • A new, statewide archery program is giving students the chance to aim higher, not only with their bow and arrow, but in their education, too.

  • Memorial Day weekend was supposed to be just another weekend for Brooks residents Desirae Charlet and her mom, Cindy P’Pool.
