Today's Features

  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Stomping and clapping rang through the halls of Bullitt County Detention Center, but not for reasons one might expect from a corrections institution.

    The jail served as the studio for country singer/songwriter Dallas Moore’s upcoming live album, “Six Strings and Steel Bars: Dallas Moore Live From Bullitt County Jail.”

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON -- High school is hard. But going through high school when you can’t hear what’s going on around you or when cancer takes someone close to you? That takes resilience.

    North Bullitt senior Cassandra Davis and Bullitt East junior Alyssa Peak have resilience.

  • Nothing brings people together like helping children and, this year, Lebanon Junction got a head start in the annual Crusade for Children fundraiser with a block party hosted by the fire department.

    Firefighter Mark Shumaker organized the event with the help of donations and volunteers from throughout the city.  The party featured a car show, live entertainment, face painting, snow cones and a bouncy house provided by Vine Hill Baptist Church.

  •  For the second year, Richard Luce organized a Cancer Awareness Day in Hillview. It featured a model train show, a car show and crafts. Prizes were given away and safety displays from Zoneton Fire were present. Despite a rainy day, a good crowd showed up at the Hillview Community Center to help raise awareness about the battle against cancer.

  •  HEBRON ESTATES - The clouds broke away and sunshine prevailed at the 2016 Bullitt County Relay for Life.

    Even without the sun, smiles were bright along the North Bullitt High School track, where cancer survivors and their caregivers celebrated by taking victory laps.

    Many of the faces in the purple survivor shirts are familiar to one another, many of them gathering together since the first Bullitt County Relay to celebrate and raise awareness.

    Below are a few of the many stories that celebrated life during the 2016 Relay for Life:

  •  Were you one of the 15 million people who tuned in to watch Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors on NBC? 

    Would you like to see the actual coat that inspired the movie?

    The hand written lyrics?

    Would you like to spend some time visiting with Dolly?

    Maybe you would just like to see the beautiful mountains that gave birth to Parton, where she grew up and that inspire so many of her songs. 

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - A local help organization took a chance in establishing a new community chest.

    Helping Out People Everywhere (HOPE) in Bullitt County, in association with the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce, hosted a ribbon cutting to commemorate the grand opening of HOPE Chest, a new donation storage location.

    HOPE co-founder Faith Portman said HOPE Chest was a place where items could be stored until distribution, with room for larger items such as house furniture.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON — Things got a little cheesy in Bullitt East High’s culinary arts class recently.

    To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Week, Katy Kendrick hosted a grilled cheese cook-off.

    The cook-off let groups of students work together to build the perfect grilled cheese that was later judged by Charger staff.

    The sandwich had to include a bread, a cheese, a spread and presentation mattered.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - In 1919, following The Great War, the U.S. Congress chartered the American Legion with the intent to focus services on veterans and service members, as well as communities.

    By 1929, Bullitt County had its own American Legion established, which was Post 157 based in Shepherdsville.

    The tradition of offering assistance to veterans and their families, current military members and the surrounding community continues today, all centered around the Post headquarters located on Old Preston Highway and Cedar Grove Road.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Since the organization was chartered over 41 years ago, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5710 has been an active member of the community.

    Through the years, the Post and its Ladies Auxiliary have been known to provide many services to eligible veterans and their families over the years.

    A bump in the road was experienced earlier this year but new commander Jimmy Anderson sees a bright future of the organization.
