  • Bring back that old way to inform us of snow closings

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - A little bit of this and a little bit of that….

    *I guess I’m getting old but I miss the way we used to notify the public about snow closings.

    For many of us, listening to the school closing music on television was a fixture.

    Now, the anchors will talk about Jefferson County schools and that’s about it. The rest of us will be directed to the bottom of the screen.

    And, radio is totally different.

    I remember listening to Wayne Perkey continue to read the school closing lists - over and over.

    After much discussion, the Bullitt County Public School Board voted 3-2 to start the Discovery School program.

    Another sentiment “discovered” was that test scores were not a major concern of those in the audience.

  • KIDS COUNT: Bullitt improves in educational ranking

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - In any index for education, Bullitt County officials will tell you that they are not where they want to be.
