  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - No one was more excited to celebrate Christmas this year than the folks attending the Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency’s Senior Center.

    The Bullitt County Providers Coalition hosted a Christmas party for the center, filled with singing, games, treats and gifts, as well as a visit from Santa Claus.

  •  HUNTERS HOLLOW - When you’re the mayor, you’re always in the hot seat.

    But when you’re in the hot seat at a mayors meeting, you’re roasted.

    Linda Parker found herself in the hot seat at the December mayors meeting, which doubled as a roast.

    Parker served 30 years as the mayor of Hunters Hollow, a position she is resigning as of Jan. 1.

    The rest of Bullitt County’s mayors decided to give a fond farewell to Parker with a roast that included state Rep. Russell Webber and county magistrate Joe Laswell.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - It was at the exact same moment, in basically the exact same spot.

    And exactly 100 years later, to the second, 100 people showed up to recognize the event.

    A Centennial Commemoration of the 1917 train wreck, which resulted in the loss of 49 lives, was presented at the Ridgway Memorial Library, which stands just across the parking lot from the location of the train tracks where the wreck occurred.

  •  Our annual look at the live nativity and Walk Through Bethlehem as presented by the Hillview Community Christian Church.

    Over 5,000 people attended the three-day outdoor tradition.

  •  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.
