  •   A paper helicopter sounds simple on the surface.

    However, when you are up against a deadline, must follow the constraints of using specific building materials and the helicopter must stay in the air a certain amount of time and land closest to a target, then that becomes a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Challenge.

    Middle and high school students gathered recently at Eastside Middle School to put their STEM skills to the test.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE — Flowers are normally sent during a time of mourning to comfort those who have lost a loved one. Unfortunately for those with pets, the grieving process isn’t quite the same.

    Hoping to help those who have lost their pets, Mount Washington Girl Scouts Makayla Stone and Alexis Sink set out to build a flower garden at Pet Haven Cemetery in Shepherdsville.

    The garden idea came as the friends brainstormed projects to help them earn their Silver Award, a requirement for middle-school aged scouts.

    That’s where Truckstop Ministries comes into play.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE— On a Friday night in the fall, she’s on the sideline getting the crowd excited about the game on the field.

    That doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be excited for herself, either.

    Bullitt Central junior Kirsten Mitchell looks like a normal cheerleader on game day but she’s a cheerleader with the odds stacked against her.

    Mitchell was born with cystic fibrosis: a genetic disease that targets the lungs, making it difficult to breath and leaves the person prone to lung infections.
