  •  If there’s one downside to fabulous, food-filled holiday celebrations, it’s the gurgles and groans of post-feasting indigestion.

  •  SANTA MONICA, California - It’s official: Bullitt Central graduate Dr. Jason McNabb is the official owner of one of the hottest records in the Guinness Book.

    McNabb officially established his new record for eating the most ghost peppers in two minutes. The record was set on the TruTV show, “Guinness World Records Unleashed.”

    The dentist consumed 66 grams of ghost peppers, or 2.33 ounces, or the equivalent of about 12 to 15 peppers. And he survived.

  •  Sean Woods spent two hours answering 128 questions on the EXPLORE exam.

         His test results place him in rare company. He is one of only two students in the last six years in Bullitt County to achieve a perfect score of 25 in all four subject areas (although many have come close).

         “When taking the test last spring, I knew I was getting a lot of the answers right but I was not sure if it was going to be a perfect score,” Sean said in a recent interview at Mt. Washington Middle School.

  •  HILLVIEW - In her big moment Norma Whitehead thought about her family more than herself.

    Her shopping list included fries, tater tots and ketchup for her son, and some coffee for her husband.

    The list was actually a plan of attack for her two-minute "Supermarket Sweep" at the Hillview Kroger presented by Forcht Bank.

    Whitehead, a Hillview resident, was drawn from 1,100 entries to participate in the event, according to Forcht Bank market president Jason Stuecker.

    "I only signed up one time," Whitehead said.

  •  Recently, 36 students with the Mount Washington Middle School Band, under the direction of David Bretz, were selected to attend the Tri-State Middle School Honor Band, located at Morehead State University, on Nov. 23..

    Students from Kentucky were joined by those from Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia. 

    Nine students were selected for the top ensemble.

  •  HILLVIEW - The Guru Market in Hillview is giving thanks to the community with a special Thanksgiving meal.

    On Wednesday, Nov. 27, the store will feature free holiday meals to the community. 

    This is the third year for the event.

    Store owner Ishwar Patel said the annual celebration was created to provide a meal for people having a hard time during the holiday season.

    “This way everyone gets a holiday,” he said. “Everyone is invited and welcome.”

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Prior to the age of technological advancements for individuals, there was no cell phone, nor laptop computer, to store thousands of personal images.

    It was just a generation ago where another artistic form of expression was implemented. Images were actually photographs, and they were printed on film and collected in a book called a photo album.

    Mount Washington resident Norma Jean “Jeanie” Roederer Compton fondly remembers her high school days. She loved taking photographs and always had her camera around.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - He might be Bullitt County’s hottest new celebrity, and on Thursday he has a ghost of a chance to stake his claim in the Guinness Book of World Records.

    Dr. Jason McNabb, a local dentist and Bullitt Central graduate, will compete against two other contestants to set a new official eating record on the TruTV series, “Guinness World Records Unleashed.”

    McNabb’s competition is eating the most ghost peppers in two minutes.

  •  PLEASANT GROVE - The Johnny Appleseed of Bullitt County continues to achieve success in his pleasant orchard located in Pleasant Grove.

    Ray Armstrong is known throughout the region for his prowess of growing quality apples. Judges at the Kentucky State Fair continue to confirm Armstrong's work, showering him with 23 awards in the 2013 competition.

    The awards included a Best of Show for a plate of apples. Armstrong said each plate consisted of a class of five apples, with five plates judged for Best of Show.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON - The city of Mount Washington is getting some sprucing up just in time for the holiday season.

    Members at the Mount Washington United Methodist Church wanted to reach out to the community so they asked Mayor Joetta Calhoun what they could do.

    She mentioned it might be nice to have more landscaping around the welcome signs.

    Tony Jeavens, who is a change leader at the church and president of the Bullitt County Extension office’s Master Gardeners program, volunteered the club to design the additions.
