  •  How about a free dental check-up before starting kindergarten?

    County agencies such as public health, pediatrics and the county library program will also be onhand. Plus, there will be free eye exams for children starting kindergarten at this annual free event sponsored by the Bullitt County Public Schools Family Resource Centers.

  • The weather was perfect and the crowd was large for the annual Bullitt Blast fireworks display. The show was again over the Salt River as part of the Shepherdsville City Fair festivities at the First Street Park.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - More changes are taking place, but the fun will remain the same at the annual Bullitt Blast and Shepherdsville City Fair.

    The big event takes place Friday, June 30, and Saturday, July 1, at Shephedsville City Park.

    The two big events merged five years ago into an even bigger event, with the fair sponsored by the city of Shepherdsville and Bullitt Blast by the Shepherdsville/Bullitt County Tourist and Convention Commission. The event is presented by the Zoneton Trowel Club.

  •  Local fire departments collected over $160,000 for the 64th annual WHAS Crusade for Children.

    Zoneton led the way with over $78,000 and Shepherdsville was next with over $25,000.

    Mount Washington had $24,000 and Southeast Bullitt had over $20,000.

    Nichols had another $11,323. No total was listed for Lebanon Junction on the official Crusade website.

    Over $5.5 million was raised and every dollar helps the children.

  •  CLERMONT - There might be other events with rides, food and pageants, but in Bullitt County there’s still nothing quite like the fair.

    The 2017 Bullitt County Fair, now in its 42 consecutive year, takes place June 12-17 at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    Fair Board president Jimmy Anderson said this year’s event will be mostly similar to the previous year, with a few notable changes and additions.

    A new event this year is an ATV Rodeo, presented by B&M Motorsports, scheduled for Tuesday night in the Horse Show ring.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The final curtain may soon fall on the Bullitt County Arts Council.

    Donna Burke, president of the council and a member of the Shepherdsville City Council, said that there is consideration to disband the organization.

    The dwindling number of people interested in keeping the group going is a major factor, said Burke.

    A meeting will be held on Thursday, June 1, at 6:30 p.m. at Dance with Steve and Donna, located on Highway 44 West in Shepherdsville.

  •  Tony Mouser was serving on a grand jury in Florida.

    The case involved a 34-year-old man doing improper things to a 10-year-old girl.

    Thanks to the work of a CASA volunteer, the man was ultimately proven guilty.

    That respect for the work of people like CASA workers to keep children safe led him to make a major personal contribution.

    Mouser recently presented the Bullitt County CASA program with a check for $25,000.

  •  Students from the Bullitt Central JROTC and members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5710 in Shepherdsville gathered on Friday at Highland Memory Gardens in Mount Washington to put out flags for Memorial Day holiday. Hundreds of flags were placed at the cemetery, which hosted its annual observance on Sunday.

  •  With Memorial Day being the un-official start of summer, it is time to start thinking about having some summer fun. Not everyone has a vacation budget or the luxury of taking time off from work and home to get away. But that is no excuse not to let the light shine through on your summer. The Louisville area offers ample opportunities to soak in music, food and fun.

  •  Graduation can turn quickly from a night of joy to an evening of tragedy.

    Each spring, the North Bullitt senior class gets to witness Shattered Dreams.

    This is conducted so students can realize the dangers which can happen during the season of prom and graduation. 

    The mock fatal accident included first responders and students got to see the emotions from those involved, as well as family of the victim.

    The event is presented through the North Bullitt Youth Services Center.
