  • BROOKS - Students and staff members at Brooks Elementary look toward the future with a new school facility opening next year.

    They now have a new, experienced leader to help the transition: Cheri Lineweaver, assistant principal at Eastside Middle School since its inception, was selected as the new Brooks principal.

    “There’s a lot of good work to be done here at Brooks,” she said.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - Walking into Bullitt Lick Middle School on Monday and being recognized by many of the sixth-graders was pretty awesome for Shepherdsville police officer Christina Boone.

    Students in all the Shepherdsville schools will be seeing more of Boone in the coming months.

    On Monday, she was introduced as the new school resource officer, which will be an extension of her current duties as a DARE officer with fifth-grade classes at Roby, Shepherdsville, Cedar Grove Elementary and St. Aloysius.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - Friday was a day for the nation to remember military personnel who have not yet returned home.

    Some may be prisoners of war or some may be missing in action.

    But there are over 88,000 Americans who have not returned home.

    On Thursday evening, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5710 and its Ladies Auxiliary hosted a special service to observe national POW/MIA day.

    As part of the ceremony was the raising of the POW/MIA flag donated by the American Legion Post 157 in Shepherdsville.

  • The Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual Health Fair on Thursday at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    Shepherdsville resident Tina Zamora wasn’t a happy camper and it had nothing to do with the recent UL-UK football game. She was getting her finger pricked by Chris Cope, a registered nurse with Jewish Hospital. It was part of a free cholesterol screening.

    Semi Phelps has her blood pressure checked by Jewish Hospital's Ashley Riley.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - It’s not an easy walk becoming an Eagle Scout, but one local Scout hopes to achieve it by making walking easier.

    Jamie Stottman is working toward becoming the first Eagle Scout recognized by Troop 685 since the group rechartered two years ago.

    An Eagle Scout must complete at least 100 hours of a service project that benefits the community. Stottman helped to plan and create a sidewalk between Shepherdsville Elementary and Bullitt Lick Middle School, where Troop 685 meets.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - The first two years of classes at the Bullitt County campus of Jefferson Community and Technical College have been successful.

    Enrollment at the classes have grown by 73 percent over the that time and is 30 percent more than school officials anticipated.

    There were seven high school students who participated this past year in a dual credit program.

    But Dr. Dan Ash and Donna Miller are not satisfied. They believe the college has much more potential.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - As a Physical Education instructor, Amanda Yarbrough understands team concept and a ‘we-can’ attitude.

    In Yarbrough’s classes at Bullitt Lick Middle School, that sometimes also refers to a ‘Wii-can’ approach.

    Yarbrough implemented the Nintendo Wii gaming system in PE classes. Over the next year she enhanced her teaching program for use by all students, including those with special needs.

  • HEBRON ESTATES - Sometimes a new job just feels like a perfect fit.

    Marcella Minogue feels that way about her new role as Freedom Elementary principal.

    “Having taught here I saw the wonderful part of Freedom,” she said. “I knew what it had to offer.”

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - When he sees a military person in uniform at a restaurant, there's a good chance he will pay for their meal.

    Although he never served in the military, he believes the men and women who serve this country should be honored and remembered.

    His latest way to honor the veterans was to purchase a monument and plaque.

    During a special ceremony Thursday, the monument was dedicated in Shepherdsville City Park.

    The city employee doesn't want his identity to be known, although his friends know who "he" is.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt County Sheriffs are adding a little more horse sense to the department.

    “We get calls and we wanted someone qualified to check them,” said Tinnell. “(Miller) knows a lot about horses and he’s been around here a long time.”
