  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - He’s had many reasons to celebrate over the years, which is one of the best reasons to celebrate now.

    Bullitt County native Clifton Ratliff will be honored with a community birthday party to commemorate the 90th year of his birth.

    Ratliff’s family is hosting the party at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre on Saturday, June 7. Everyone is invited to stop by and greet the family patriarch.

  •  The Bullitt County Area Technology Center had four competitors in Louisville April 16-19th and returned with a state winner, Alyssa Hensley, 16, in Graphic Communications. Automotive Mechanics student James Huddleston, 17, earned Second Place in Automotive 1.

    Jacob Numann, 18, and Dylan Davis, 18, also earned the right to compete thanks to their efforts at regional competition.

  •  It was a rainy morning but that didn't damper the cleanup efforts of one Louisville Boy Scout.

    Fifteen-year old Sebastian Mortenson organized efforts for about 20 people to help him clean up grounds in Shepherdsville that will be the future home to the Active Heroes retreat center.

    An advocate for veterans, military and their families, the organization obtained a grant last July from Home Depot for $250,000.

    Once complete, the facility will include camp grounds as well as batting cages, a garden and classrooms.

  • FRANKFORT--The challenge of taking kids fishing is that they want to catch fish. Parents have a better chance of making this happen during a series of special free fishing events for kids being held across the state on Saturday, June 7.

    Many event locations will be specially stocked with fish to increase the odds of success. Some events feature free food and prizes for young anglers.

  •  CEDAR GROVE - The staff and students at Cedar Grove Elementary are appreciative that nearby Amazon gets the picture.

    The online store, with a warehouse location near the school, made a donation of used company cameras for student use.

    Eighteen Canon EOS 60D cameras were presented to principal Andy Moberly and Family Resource Center coordinator Tammy Perdew by Amazon studio managers Lynn Grigsby and Michael Margolies.

  •  The month of May was designated in Bullitt County as Drug Court Awareness Month by County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts.

    The state funded program provides judges with another opportunity to rehabilitate those who have become involved in the legal system due to issues with substance abuse.

    There are various aspects of the court system involved in the drug court system, including a volunteer board.

    Participants are held to very high standards, including regular attendance for drug screenings and the requirement to hold a full-time job.

  •  Memorial Day is honored each year in Bullitt County with special ceremonies honoring active duty and veteran military members.

  •  HEBRON ESTATES - The heat couldn’t stop them. The rain couldn’t stop them. Now the unusual chill of a Friday May evening wouldn’t stop them.

    Cancer didn’t stop them, either.

    Survivors gathered to celebrate life victories, big and small, during the 2014 Bullitt County Relay for Life, one that will be remembered as possibly the coldest Relay event in the county’s history.

  •  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.

    Next week, a story on some of the survivors who gathered at the celebration. Also, some pictures from a few guys who will do just about anything to raise money for the fight against cancer.

     

  •  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.
