  •  Family Day Ministries recently sent its final truckload of items for those in the Houston area who suffered from floods earlier this year.

    The relief effort started shortly after the flood hit.

    By the time the final M&M Cartage trailer left the Shepherdsville church, over $30,000 worth of new items were sent just in time for Christmas.

  •  HILLVIEW - At Alternative Adult Day Services, they find a reason to celebrate each and every day.

    That’s no exception at Christmas-time, and the fun can’t start soon enough.

    Members of the facility were visited by second graders from the Little Flock Christian Academy, who delivered homemade decorated cookies.

    The students also played games with the members and performed a few Christmas carols to celebrate.

  •  Santa came to the American Legion Post 157  and he brought gifts!

    Over 80 residents attended the annual Christmas event, where kids were invited to enjoy snacks and partake in crafts until the anticipated arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus.

    Once there, children of all ages were given the chance to have their picture taken and receive an age-appropriate gift. The American Legion Post 157, the Ladies Auxiliary, the American Legion Riders Post 157 and the Sons of the American Legion collectively put on the event as well as purchased the gifts.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - The railroad is a major factor in Bullitt County and Shepherdsville’s history.

    No other moment involving the railroad had more impact on the area than the train wreck that occurred on Dec. 20, 1917, in Shepherdsville, the worst wreck in the history of the L&N Railroad.

    On Wednesday there will be a commemorative 100th anniversary centennial remembrance ceremony hosted by the Bullitt County History Museum and Bullitt County Public Library at Ridgway Memorial Library, located next to the actual wreck site.

  • The city of Hillview hosted its first annual community Thanksgiving dinner. All residents were invited to take advantage of the free meal and fellowship.

     

    Donations made the event possible.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON—With the flip of a switch, the city of Mount Washington was in the Christmas spirit.

    Light Up Mount Washington had a little something for everybody at its annual event, held in the middle of town at the city pavilion and First Baptist Church.

    A train and horse carriages gave rides up and down Main Street while shoppers visited local booths and kids lined up for balloon animals and face paint from Mr. and Mrs. Magic.

  •  Eastside Middle School’s Jodi Grant-Jones has been named 2017 Kentucky Health Teacher of the Year.

    “Totally shocked, but so honored” is how Jones described the feeling. She is the only Kentucky health educator in grades K-12 selected for the award. 

    Jones was honored Nov. 12 during KAPHERD’s fall convention in Lexington and will receive a Certificate of Recognition at the Nov. 27th meeting of the Bullitt County Board of Education.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Last year, nearly 90 local residents took the challenge.

    And, this year, that number will grow.

    Bullitt County will again participate in the Kentucky 120 Bible Reading Marathon and Shepherdsville Government Center will be the local host.

    Depp Rasner, coordinator of the local effort, said that the goal is to have all 120 counties have a Bible reading maration starting on Jan. 1, 2018.

    In its first effort, Rasner said he was very pleased with the 87 participants who volunteered their time.

  •  Light Up Shepherdsville returned to the city park with new activities.

    Great weather and free food were part of the attraction Saturday.

    The annual parade brought big crowds to the park, where music, food and a visit from Santa Claus were part of the night.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - In the most joyous time of year, the good people of Bullitt County seem to do a tremendous job making sure everyone is taken care of at Christmastime.

    From needy families to school kids and their teachers, many organizations go above and beyond to make certain all community members are properly taken care of.

    Sometimes, however, there is one group that feels forgotten and neglected, and emotions can hit them especially hard at this time of year.
