  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Middle schoolers can act theatrical at times. At Bullitt Lick Middle School, that’s actually encouraged.

  •  The Mount Washington chapter of the AARP marked Veterans Day with its annual BBQ Blast fund-raiser.

    Vietnam Veterans of America 454 opened the dinner at the Ralph Lutes Senior Center with a presentation of colors.

    The event featured musical entertainment from John Wigginton, who also served as the auctioneer.

    The dinner is the largest AARP fund-raiser of the year. Proceeds benefit the Peoples Bank Mount Washington’s Pick-a-Tree Star program, Mount Washington Community Ministries, veterans and the elderly.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON - Toni McKinley remembers thinking she had a perfectly healthy baby after giving birth to her son Trent.

  •  MOUNT WAHSINGTON - A group of regional musicians is stringing together some free shows for Bullitt Countians.

    The Preston Highway String Band features a collection retirees who decided to play community concerts featuring Bluegrass, Country and Old-Time Gospel music.

    Bill Fowler, a 40-year employee with L&N Railroad, emcees the shows while also singing some of the songs and keeping pace on the dobro.

    "We all are retired and do this to hopefully make life a little better for the people that we meet and play for," Fowler said.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over the past six years Mount Washington resident David Echsner has devoted himself to helping students expand their minds and learn valuable skills through the science of robotics.

    Echsner, who coaches the Kentucky Engineers of Tomorrow, a competitive robotics team made up of students from Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham and Shelby Counties, believes robotics can help students reach their full potential.

  •     SHEPHERDSVILLE - With the turkey leftovers consumed and the shopping frenzy of Black Friday merely an after-thought on the credit cards, several Bullitt County communities are gearing up to kick off the holiday season.
        This weekend will feature festivities in Shepherdsville, Mount Washington and Lebanon Junction. Hillview hosted its Winterfest celebration prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

    Light Up Shepherdsville

  •  While many were enjoying the Thanksgiving day holiday at home, dozens of volunteers gathered at First Baptist Church in Shepherdsville and at Pleasant Grove Baptist Church between Shepherdsville and Mount Washington.

    The mission of this day was to make sure several hundred families had a hot, delicious Thanksgiving meal.

    For years, volunteers at both churches, along with groups like Scout Troop 848, have worked to prepare meals for those in need in the community.
