    According to the U.S. Department of Agricultural’s Economic Research Service, American consumers spend, on average, just over 10 percent of their disposable income for food annually.

    In recognition of this week, Bullitt County Farm Bureau is celebrating Food Check-Out Week by delivering food items to the residents of Colonial House in Shepherdsville.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE — No matter where the disaster may strike, the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief Team is there.

    This time, though, the disaster struck a little closer to home to Feeding Coordinator Karen Smith.

    “I wasn’t excited because it means friends are hurting but it feels good that we can provide for our neighbors,” she said.

    The last time the disaster relief team set up in Bullitt County was after the 1996 tornados hit the area.

  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE - Anyone with property along the Salt River tends to see their location as a curse during floods.

    A local church has taken what could be considered a curse and turned it into a blessing.

    Mercy Hill Church in Shepherdsville received substantial water damage to its building infrastructure during the recent high water event. The church moved into the old Troutman Dry Goods store located on Joe B. Hall Avenue.

  •  These photographs were taken by “Ms. Allen,” a neighbor, as she captured William E. Armstrong riding his horse with a cup of coffee through the flood waters of 1997.  These were made from the front porch of her residence at the intersection of Highway 61 and Highway 1494 (Beech Grove Road), Lebanon Junction.  

    Mr. Armstrong recalls that, when he woke up on this particular morning, the flood waters had backed up to the back of his barn and surrounded his property.
