    Wright discovered the camera near a wooded area by the school. He was practicing golf at the time with an after-school Boys Club program offered by PE instructor Dennis Minnis.

  •     SHEPHERDSVILLE - As Stefanie Walls of Zappos Fulfillment Centers will tell you, a comfortable, stylish, new pair of shoes is essential for looking and feeling your best.

        Unfortunately, during these tough economic times, it’s difficult for many families to put food on the table and pay the mortgage, much less spend $50 on a pair of shoes.

  •     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Congratulations are in order for Bullitt County’s Alexandria Mills.

       Representing the United States in the Miss World pageant, Mills was crowned the 60th Miss World in Sanya, China on Saturday after competing with 115 women from every corner of the globe.

  •     Despite falling on a Sunday, trick-or-treating in Bullitt County will take place the evening of October 31.

        In recent years some Bullitt cities made decisions to change trick-or-treat night to Saturday to avoid the traditional church day.

        Due to past confusion with the changing of the event, the county and all local cities have determined to allow trick-or-treating on its regular calender day in 2010.

  •     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Mariann Berkedal may be from Norway, but the former Bullitt East exchange student called Mount Washington her second home and if you asked she would tell you just how much it has meant to her.

        Besides giving her a second family and lifelong friends, Berkedal said her stint in Mount Washington helped her become more confident and independent.

  •     LEBANON JUNCTION - Main Street was the scene of celebration and remembrance on Saturday afternoon as dozens gathered to dedicate the new home of the Lebanon Junction Police Department.
