  •  Bernheim Middle School students Emma Maddox (eighth grade) and Virginia Boyle, Marissa Johns and Leah Johnson (seventh grade) earned honors at the Kentucky Jr. Beta Club convention last month in Lexington.

    Emma’s self-portrait garnered First Place in painting while Virginia, Marisa and Leah placed second in the Book Battle. They were among 38 Bernheim students with 7,000 other youth at the convention.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON—When Mount Washington resident Elmer Newkirk told his wife he’d brought home another woman last fall, she wasn’t expecting that woman to be in a box.

    To be fair, Newkirk wasn’t expecting the box to be someone’s ashes when he first saw it either.

    “I was leaving my storage unit and saw a pile of discarded things in the lot,” he said. “That caught my eye because I thought it was a jewelry box.”

  •  AUSTRIA -- When the final leg of the of the torch run is conducted at the Special Olympics World Games on Saturday, March 18, a special local touch will be present.

    Trevor Ford, a deputy with the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office, will be one of the 88 law enforcement members who are part of this special ceremony in Austria.

    As a member of the Final Leg team, Ford and fellow law enforcement members will carry the torch through 45 cities to honor the Special Olympic spirit.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Cold weather didn’t deter the warmth inside Parquet Springs Conference Centre during the 2017 KidsFest presented by the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce and KentuckyOne Health.

    Free games and activities, treats and educational items and door prizes were distributed.

    Booths ranged from local businesses to county emergency officials, with mascots and the occasional animal in attendance.

    The annual event is designed to be fun for children of all ages and a great opportunity for family engagement.

  •  HEBRON ESTATES - A former North Bullitt Eagle is now flying high following his United States Marine Corps recruit training.

    PFC Damian Whitehouse, a 2016 NB graduate, recently completed a three-month training at Parris Island, SC.

    The son of James Whitehouse and Mary Isaacs now heads to Camp Geiger, NC, for further combat training, then eventually to the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, FL, to begin aviation training.

    Whitehouse prepared for his Marine career through the USMC Delayed Entry Program, working with recruiter SSGT Justin McLinn.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE — Although it may be true that the building doesn’t make the church, there is nothing that says the building can’t inspire the church.

    Jim Hatfield is a 70-year-old, lifelong member of the Davidson Memorial United Methodist Church. He was baptized there, married there, held his wife’s funeral there and, when the time comes, will have his own funeral there.

    So it comes as no surprise that the building, or rather the stained glass windows that line the walls of the building, holds a special meaning to him.

  •  CLERMONT – Signs of spring are everywhere this month at Bernheim, and with it comes a program for everyone.

  •  Daylight Savings Time will officially begin on Sunday, March 12, at 2 a.m.

    At that time, clocks will officially move ahead one hour to 3 a.m.

    Don't forget to set all of your clocks forward one hour this weekend. Also, Daylight Savings is also a good time to check batteries in smoke alarms.

    The Red Cross encourages the smoke alarm battery check practice, as well as practicing home evacuation plans, safety procedures, and preparing emergency kits during all Daylight Savings changes.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Lions are wounded, but they aren’t dead yet.

    The Shepherdsville Lions Club has made a recent push for new membership to maintain one of the county’s longest-standing service organizations that has assisted the community for 72 years.

    In recent years membership has fallen off and current members are aging and feeling burnt out. However, they are still willing to help others who are willing to take over the operations.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - While U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie was in town to visit the Bullitt County Area Technology Center, he took time to also visit fifth grade students at nearby Roby Elementary.

    With students deep into Civics studies at this time of year, Guthrie primarily discussed the history and functions of the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government.

    Following a question/answer session, students received a free booklet featuring the United States Constitution.
