    On Monday night under the pavilion at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds, Rhodes was crowned the 2016 Miss Bullitt County Fair in a contest with four other young women.

  •   SHEPHERDSVILLE -- No matter the fund-raising need, Nick Simon was the “go to” man in Bullitt County.

    After receiving her masters degree in social work from Campbellsville University in May, Flowers returned to her home in Shepherdsville to work as a foster parent supervisor at New Hope Foster Homes. Because Flowers said she felt like she was getting her life together, she ignored the idea of mission work.

    Pork chops are just one of the fair favorites returning to the Bullitt County Fair, though.
