  • Christmas at the Senior Citizens Center

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Remember, Santa Claus is a senior citizen, too.

    The folks at the Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency’s Senior Center are having as much fun as Old St. Nick this season, with more than one Christmas party.

    The first party was held with members of the Bullitt County Providers Coalition, a group of local community advocates helping to address primary issues for seniors in the community.

    The Providers brought Christmas gifts for each Senior Center member in attendance, while visiting and spreading Christmas cheer and joy.

  • KYTC: Crews treating roadways

     LOUISVILLE – Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) road crews in Louisville and the surrounding counties will be pre-treating interstates and other routes today in preparation for the snow that is expected to fall on Thursday.  Motorists should be alert for slow moving trucks on area roads spraying brine throughout the day.

  • ROADSHOW for the week beginning January 1, 2017

     Inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances may occur, so the information below is strictly of an advisory nature and is subject to change with no notice.


     So, where do we start?

    In the middle of his second term, mayor Scott Ellis was part of an investigation that seemed to go on for quite some time.

    An indictment was finally issued as Ellis was charged with a misdemeanor. 

    It involved alleged activities between the mayor and a woman and some of the events apparently happened at city hall.

    However, before the matter ever went to trial, the charge was dismissed.


     When David Greenwell took office, the state of Kentucky threw a curveball. Since the county’s population had reached a certain figure, the way fees offices like the sheriff and the county clerk changed.

    In 2015, that new accounting procedure caught up with the sheriff and with Bullitt Fiscal Court.


     A lawsuit taking back to 2004 was finally settled in the city of Hillview.

    After having filed for bankruptcy for protection against an $11 million debt, the city of Hillview was able to finally work out a deal with its victim.

    Truck America had filed suit in 2004 when the city would not accept its offer to pay $800,000 for 40 acres of property off Interstate 65.


     Even a family of beavers could not stop the economic boom in Bullitt County.

    The past year brought announcements of hundreds of new jobs. The latest multi-million investment came with the arrival of Browning Investments and its Velocity 65 project, which will have four or five buildings.


     Forget the polls. Ignore the political experts.

    Donald Trump will soon be sworn in as your next President of the United States.

    And, he’s taking a lot of his friends into the political office at all levels across the country.

    One of those who will begin his first term of public office will be Dan Johnson. The Mount Washington resident will begin his work this week as the state representative of the 49th District.
