  • CEDAR GROVE - In honor of the Veterans Day holiday, Cedar Grove Elementary students let their hair down.

    Or up. Or out. Or all around. In all shapes and colors.

    Students were allowed to participate in Crazy Hair Day with a $1 donation toward the Our Military Kids fund, sponsored by the Military Kids Foundation.

  •             Mount Washington Main Street Manager Dale Salmon recently  announced that the downtown revitalization initiative recently kicked off its youth program during a meeting of the Mount Washington City Council.

    Dubbed the Mount Washington Youth Chamber of Preservationists, the group is made up of three Bullitt East High School students who will work with the Main Street Committee to revitalize downtown.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt County Dispatch employees continue to assist the community on a daily basis.

    By communicating with the county's first responders and 9-1-1 emergency callers, they do their part to help the community in an important way.

    The employees are now going above and beyond their initial duties, raising funds for local charities.

    The first donation was made to the Hillview Operation Santa program in the amount of $305.

  •   MOUNT WASHINGTON - After working most of his life and earning a decent wage, Jeffrey Nutgrass of Mount Washington found himself out of work in July. 

  •  HILLVIEW - The Hillview Police and Zoneton Fire Departments from the city of Hillview recently went to battle against each other on the basketball floor.

    The event was all in the name of charity as the proceeds will be used to fund the Operation Santa and the Crusade for Children.

    The game took place at the Hillview Community Center court.

  •  Major Tim Starke didn’t think he would get to attend the annual Overdale Elementary Veteran’s Day salute.

    However, his unit returned home recently and Starke was once again a major part of the school celebration.

    But on Friday, his son, Ben, a preschool student at Overdale, also played a role. Wife and mom, Heidi, is a teacher at the school.

  •  Bullitt County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts proclaimed Monday, Nov. 14, as World Diabetes Day in Bullitt County.

    She was joined by Jessica Craddock, who is the leader of the local efforts as part of the KIPDA Rural Diabetes Coalition.

    The entire month is observed as Diabetes Awareness Month and supporters are encouraged to wear blue each Friday in November.

    The next diabetes coalition meeting will be on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 1:30 p.m. at the health department. The meeting will include a holiday recipe exchange.

  • LEBANON JUNCTION – With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season fast approaching it’s easy to forget those living in extreme poverty throughout the developing world, but as Rev. Dondie Johnson pointed out; it’s the perfect time to show them you care.

    An associate pastor at Belmont Baptist Church, Johnson serves at Bullitt County relay coordinator for Operation Christmas Child, an international faith-based initiative aimed at giving hope to the world’s poorest children.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - It doesn't sound like much to say that folks making an economic impact on Bullitt County include Archibald Andrews, Betty Cooper, Veronica Lodge, Reggie Mantle and Forsythe Pendleton Jones III.

    It might sound more familiar if the latter's name was switched to Jughead.

    The historical Archie Comics became part of the county's history when the company moved its American printing orders to Publishers Press in July 2010.

  • The Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce recently held its annual awards dinner. Several members were honored during the event.
