  • MOUNT WASHINGTON — For the second time in two years Mount Washington Middle School has proudly produced Bullitt County’s Middle School Teacher of the Year.

    This year seventh grade science teacher Stephanie Carver is the honor’s recipient.

    Carver was recognized for doing a job that doesn’t really feel much like work to her at all.

    “Every day I get to combine my love for science with my love for teaching,” she said.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON — Kristy Tinelli excelled at math and science from a young age. So much so, that everyone around her expected her to become a doctor or engineer.

    Giving in to those expectations, Tinelli pursued a degree in chemical engineering. She left her Mount Washington home and moved to Virginia where she had a successful seven-year career in chemical engineering.

    Until one day she realized that she wanted more than just a career.

    “These kids were very conscientious, they had everything ready,” said Clark. “We had everything we needed at hand.”

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON – Jonathan England called himself pretty unimaginative.

    Yet, when the decision was made on which of the logo designs to select for the Bullitt County Publlic School System, it was England’s who stood above the rest.

    But his original design needed a bit of tweaking and school officials called upon a design from North Bullitt senior C.J. Parker for the finishing touches.

    Superintendent Keith Davis said the theme was moving forward.

    England said the basics of the logo was that you must stand up and reach for the light.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON -- It’s a new day for the Mount Washington United Methodist Church.

    The MWUMC will be able to move ahead on its new building project with a little help from the Mount Washington City Council after the board moved to approve a resolution to issue the church up to $2.25 million for a multipurpose facility.

    The city’s bond issuance allows for the church to qualify for a lower interest rate than if it had obtained the financing through conventional methods.

  • HILLVIEW — Serving the community runs in the bloodlines of many in the city of Hillview.

    Councilmember Kim Whitlock is the daughter of Dale Russ, another long-time councilman who retired and then came back for a short period to fill a vacant position.

    Prior to running for the council, Whitlock served as the city’s representative on the joint planning commission.

  • NICHOLS – The students at Nichols Elementary attempted to slay the dragon known as cancer.

    The school hosted a Renaissance Fair to raise money for the Bullitt County Relay for Life.

    For $5 students received pizza and drinks along with crafts and many fun Renaissance-related activities.

    Eevents included jousting, where students rode horses on wheels and aimed at other students with giant foam noodles.

    Kindergarten and first grade students participated in slaying an actual dragon, in piñata form.
