  •  Kentuckians planning for higher education will find “The College Circuit,” a booklet published by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA), to be a useful resource.

    It can be used by students ranging in age from middle school to adults. Parents and counselors can also use it to help their students plan and pay for college. The booklet includes information about careers, college preparation, state and federal financial aid, tips for parents, online resources and a template for setting up a personal college plan.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - They’ve brought happy endings, new visions and community support to the Shepherdsville community for more than seven decades.

    However, without any new vision, and lacking that same community support, the Shepherdsville Lions Club will begin proceedings to close its doors by June 30. Members unanimously voted on the decision during the club’s March meeting.

    In recent months the Lions made a frantic push to remain open, inviting new members to join and even take over the administrative positions of long-time members.

  •  Spring break is just around the corner. While it has been only three month since the Smoky Mountain wildfires – Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville are ready to welcome you back to their community.

  •  From looking at silent auction items to watching “celebrity” models such as John Barbagallo strut on the runway, a large crowd appeared to be very entertained at the annual Irene Carroll Style Show and Scholarship Luncheon.

  •  HILLVIEW — Knowing where to go in a drug abuse situation could be the matter of life or death.

    Unfortunately, little information is available to the public on where to go. That’s why the Partners of the Bullitt County 2020 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) Substance Abuse Workgroup, in correlation with the Bullitt County Partners in Prevention substance abuse prevention coalition and the Access to Care Workgroup, have coordinated a public forum to invite community members and law enforcement to learn the jargon and the resources available.
