  •     HEBRON ESTATES - With on-going construction issues, the students, teachers and parents of Hebron Middle may feel that only a miracle could get the school building ready for classes in August.

        They have received that “miracle” in the form of a new principal: Steve Miracle has been selected for the position.

        Miracle was selected by the school council to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of John Barbagallo.

  •     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Boy Scout Troop 868 recently returned from a 16-day trip to Missouri and Arkansas that included 10 days of camping at Camp Sawmill on the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation.  Bartle is one of the largest Boy Scout reservations in the United States and annually hosts more than 7,000 scout campers.

  •     Every year, Nichols Elementary School students create some very imaginative musical instruments...by hand.

        Take the top part of an oatmeal canister. Make nine holes in it. Pull fishing line through each hole and cut it.

        Attach the line to small metal pieces at the top while the end that hangs is adorned with nuts, bolts and weights. Draw musical images on the top and tie one final piece of fishing line to the center.

        This is Rachael Wilkinson’s wind chime.

  • The time is getting near for the opening of the new school year.

    Youngsters entering kindergarten got an opportunity to participate in an annual kickoff event at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    They were greeted by cheerleaders as they entered and left the event.

    There were representatives from each of the schools, as well as the various departments in the public school system.

    Questions were answered and plenty of goodies were handed out.

    The first day for students is Wednesday, Aug. 11.

  •     HILLVIEW - Amanda Lucas grew up participating in the two things she enjoyed most: softball and music.

        Both led her to a long and successful friendship with Audrey Cecil. The two now perform live music together and plan to record an album later this year.

        Neither anticipated the biggest news of their lives this summer: The singer/songwriters were selected to perform at the Lilith Fair concert in Indianapolis.

  •     MOUNT WASHINGTON - As a member of Campbellsville University’s Board of Advancement, local alumna Gwinn Hahn feels it’s her duty to help improve her alma mater.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - Those attending events at the Paroquet Springs Conference Centre will continue to see changes to the facility.
