    Cancer didn’t stop them, either.

  •  The annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life was held on Friday at North Bullitt High School.

    Young and old from all parts of Bullitt County gathered to honor those who survived the disease and to remember those who were not as fortunate.

  •  LEBANON JUNCTION - Brett Guthrie traded his customary role as U.S. Congressman for the position of a fifth-grade history teacher.

    For an hour, Guthrie and students at Lebanon Junction Elementary got an opportunity to talk about government and how it came to be in America.

    As part of the state General Assembly before going to Washington, Guthrie is well aware of the items students are being tested on.

    And, as a congressman, Guthrie gets to experience the workings of the federal government first hand.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON - From humble beginnings, J. Chester Porter built himself into a very successful businessman and attorney.

    The native of Greenfield, Ind., came to Bullitt County in 1966 after securing his law degree from the University of Louisville.

    Over the course of the next 48 years, Porter would grow from being a successful attorney into a political leader and then an entrepreneur with interests such as banking and horse racing.
