  •  CAMPBELLSVILLE -- “I hope you are proud of yourselves and your accomplishments.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Depp Rasner believes the current status of city government in Shepherdsville is a bit dysfunctional.

    With his business experience, his college degree and his time in county government, Rasner believes he can be the person to make a positive change in Shepherdsville.

    Rasner will be one of six candidates vying for the final two years of Scott Ellis’ term as mayor.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON -- He was remembered as a man who was liked by all.

    Glenn Lewis Armstrong, 80, of Mount Washington, died on Monday, Aug. 8, 2016.

    “He was a good guy,” said James “Butch” Sweat, who served as magistrate of the Fourth District with Armstrong.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- He spent nine years in the mayor’s seat and Sherman Tinnell is looking to return to his old office.

    Tinnell became the third candidate to put his name into contention for the mayor’s office in Shepherdsville.

    An election on Nov. 8 will determine who will fulfill the final two years of Scott Ellis’ term. Ellis resigned in February and Brian James was selected as the interim.

    “Right now everyone is confused,” Tinnell said of the mayor’s situation.

  •  LOUISVILLE -- Residents in Bullitt County will see a lot of classic street rods in the community once again this week.

  •  PIONEER VILLAGE -- After sitting on the bench for most of his high school varsity career, Evan Bickett packed up his glove for what was presumably the last time. 

    The plan was simple: go to Indiana University Southeast and earn a criminal justice degree. 

    No more baseball, strictly academics.

    In the back of his mind, though, Bickett knew there was a chance to do something more.

  •     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It was a perfect summer camp for kids, all wrapped up with a bow.
        Archery Camp was hosted at Shepherdsville Elementary, featuring instruction by Shepherdsville archery coach Keith Mulkins.

        Bullitt Central students volunteered to assist with the camp, sponsored by the Shepherdsville/Nichols Family Resource Centers and Bernheim/Bullitt Lick Youth Services Centers.
