  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON -- September 11, 2001, is a date that sticks in everyone’s mind. 

    Most remember where they were that day or what they were doing when they heard the news about the terrorist attack at the World Trade Centers.

    Bullitt County will have its third annual Day of Remembrance a couple days after to remember those who lost their lives this Sunday.

    This year the ceremony will take place in Lebanon Junction.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt County's down-home charm and sturdy patriotism have helped lay a foundation for a new 9/11 memorial.

    The American Fallen Warriors Memorial Foundation (AFWMF) Gold Star 11 Tour stopped at Shepherdsville City Park on its way to a new memorial site in Kansas City.

    The tour featured anchor stones from the World Trade Center slurry wall that are being transported as part of the new memorial.

  •  LOUISVILLE - During the week of Sept. 8-14 over 40,000 Southern Gospel Music fans, representing at least 40 states and more than a half dozen foreign countries will travel to the 56th Annual National Quartet Convention. This will be the 20th and final Convention in Louisville, before the event moves to the city of Pigeon Forge,  in 2014.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - One could say that Shepherdsville resident Fran Cox has a baker’s intuition.

  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE - In an effort to deter suicide through intervention, Bullitt County Public Schools are implementing a program at middle and high school levels called More Than Sad.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Becky Johnson is proud of her son and doesn’t want anyone in Bullitt County to forget him.

  •  BROOKS - The Cissell house was full of people on a recent Saturday but it wasn’t for the normal family gathering. 

  •  Missy Gousha, a Mount Washington resident and business owner, said her son, Michael, was a jokester.

    “He was very fun loving,” she said.

    Donna Neblett, another Mount Washington resident, said her daughter, Rachael, wanted to be a brain surgeon so she could uncover the cause of Alzheimer’s, a disease that affected her grandfather.

    Donna and Missy, while not related, are a part of the same story. They are parents who have lost children to death by suicide.

    It’s a story that’s surprising, but not uncommon.

  •  PIONEER VILLAGE - One of the ways the Bullitt County Public Schools system hopes to deter suicide is through prevention.

    Some suicidal situations involving younger people include actions within the schools or with classmates, many implementing bullying methods.

    Former BCPS Safe and Drug-Free Schools coordinator Jamie Goldsmith presented an anti-bullying program, "Take a Stand Against Bullying," throughout the community in hopes of raising awareness while educating both youth and parents about bullying issues.
