  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - When someone sees a police car in a school parking lot, the first assumption is that there is trouble.

    And when students see an officer in uniform roaming the hallways, they may assume that the drug dog can’t be far behind.

    But, thanks to a partnership with the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department, an officer will be in the high schools - as well as the middle schools - on a regular basis.

  • LEBANON JUNCTION -- A crowd gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday for the new branch library in Lebanon Junction. Library director Randy Matlow and county judge Melanie Roberts were among the guest speakers.

  • CLERMONT - One event has been a regular attraction for the past five years and another is making its first appearance this weekend.

  • Despite a lot of construction in the schools, the first day went well for the over 12,000 students in the Bullitt County Public School System.

    “I would like to comment our entire team on what can only be termed an extraordinarily smooth opening. In the face of many construction issues, we opened safely, on-time and ready to learn,” said superintendent Keith Davis.

    In visiting six schools, Davis said things went very well with few first-day glitches.
