  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central students glimpsed into their college and career possibilities to take a major step toward closing the deal on their futures.

    The school's Youth Service Center sponsored "Close the Deal," a program allowing senior and junior students opportunities to meet and speak with representatives from various universities, businesses and military programs.

    Students received lunch during the event, sitting at tables with representatives from careers the students showed an interest in.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Linda Lear Shofner hopes that years shared with Bullitt County families will help draw interest to her new book.

    "Shared Years" is the title of Shofner's newly-published book by AuthorHouse in Northern Kentucky. It is her first published book, and it only took her 40 years to complete it.

    The reason for the length of process was primarily due to Shofner's educational career, 30 years primarily at Cedar Grove Elementary, minus two weeks at Overdale Elementary.

  •  We just celebrated the unofficial end to summer with Labor Day. 

    It is hard to believe, but next week will be Fall Break.

    Instead of taking the normal weekend trip to a state park or visiting the Smokies again, why not try something new?

    Make Atlanta, Ga., your family Fall Break destination. That’s right Atlanta, Ga., where the leaves are just as pretty and there is just as much for family adventure inside and outside.

  •  HILLVIEW - Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has awarded a $5 000 Lowe’s Toolbox for Education® grant to Overdale Elementary School in Hillview for renovation of their school playground.

    Overdale Elementary is one of more than 580 schools cross the United States to be awarded a Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant this spring for school improvement projects during the 2012-2013 school year.

    Old wooden mulch was removed, and colorful new rubber mulch was installed in the playground. The project was completed in July 2013.

  •  CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. 

    While there are many different flu viruses, the flu vaccine is designed to protect against the viruses most likely to cause the illness during the flu season.

    Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season.

    ColorFest’s two days of affordable family fun surrounded by fall’s spectacular beauty with hands-on nature activities, great food, distinctive crafts by Kentucky artists, pumpkin painting, a hay maze and many more autumn activities.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON - Hard work pays off. 

    This is the lesson Crossroads Elementary Teacher, Toni Unser, recently learned. 

    She recently won the Teacher of the Month contest from Gen X Radio.

    “It probably made my year,” she said. “It’s so great to be recognized and to know that you’re making a difference.”

    This is Unser’s second year at Crossroads, but she has been teaching for 18 years.

    She currently teaches the fifth grade.

  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE - A local church hopes that a former community event will return as a plum of a fundraiser.

    The Hot River Nights Open Header Cruise “Blastin’ Down Plum Street” will take place Saturday, Oct. 5, hosted by St. Aloysius Catholic Church.

    Event organizer Depp Rasner said the hot rod portion would remain similar to past events hosted by Hot River Nights along Buckman Street.

    “This time we’re closing Plum Street,” he said. “The cars will be able to access the church parking lot.”

  •  The Lebanon Junction Old Fashion Days parade turned out to be another big success. Nice weather helped and the large crowd followed the route into the Wall Street Park.
