  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE - When a local family lost its home in a fire, the community rallied in support, while the Red Cross assisted in initial support efforts.

    Members of the Shepherdsville Fire Department, who handled the fire, also wanted to help the family beyond the initial response.

    Thanks to research by the department, more funding was donated courtesy of the Firefighters Charitable Foundation, a non-profit agency based in New York that assists disaster victims.

  •  HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Drama Club presented “Spy School,” a comedy play by Don Zolidis.

    The story is based in 1961, featuring “a typical house, a typical high school, a typical CIA training facility.”

    The main character, Priscilla, a.k.a. Jane Doe (played by Ali Tilford), is taken from her regular home and family, trained by the CIA and then placed into a similar school, with a family of CIA agents in disguise at home.

    “Spy School” was produced by North Bullitt instructor Adam Elliott.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - For the past three years, Tammy Ott and a small group of volunteers have been trying to do the “right thing.”

    The mission has been to relocate and preserve the Bowman Valley School House.

    Since 1916, the two-room schoolhouse educated African-American students until its closure in 1957 after the end of segregation.

    The dream is to have the last remaining known schoolhouse for African Americans to be relocated next to the Woodsdale one-room schoolhouse on Highway 44, next to the Bullitt County Board of Education.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON--Craige Sharpe never thought he would be a teacher when he grew up, but now he can’t imagine himself doing anything else.

    “I enjoy working with young people,” he said. “I like to think that maybe I can make a difference in their lives.”

    Sharpe has bachelor’s of arts in business administration from Bellarmine University and a master’s of arts in teaching from Western Kentucky University.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE--When Susan Gardner heard about the ARTfest contest last month she knew instantly she wanted to participate.

    “I’m a big fan of the Bullitt County Public Library,” said the Shepherdsville resident.

    The festival was started this year, said Patrick Yaeger, who works in the outreach department of the library, as a way for the community to display their art while celebrating National Women’s History month.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - When Dr. Swannie Jett arrived at the Bullitt County Public Health Department, his mission was to become more involved in the community.

    A key part of that was to educate the public on health issues. And to alert the public that the health department was more than a place for those needing to get a shot.

    That mission is probably a big part of Bullitt County’s high marks in the 2013 Kentucky KIDS COUNT survey.

    In the area of health, Bullitt County ranked 12th out of 120 counties.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON--Justin Hornback has always loved teaching since he started with Bible classes when he was 18 years-old but he never imagined it would turn into a career for him.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON--A labor of love has kept some residents at Elmcroft Senior Living warm this winter.

  • MOUNT WASHINGTON--Pleasant Grove Elementary students wore their PJs to school one day to support of their classmates. Third grade student Kaleb Cooper recently passed after battling cancer.

  •  The Bullitt County Court Appointed Special Advocates recently hired Lynn Martin as its part-time volunteer coordinator.

    He will be working to recruit, train and support volunteers to serve additional children who are in the court system as a result of abuse or neglect.

    As a father of two grown children and a long-time CASA volunteer, Lynn brings other especially relevant experiences to the job.
