  • 'Farner Dreams' - a wish list for the future

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - I have a dream. What I like to think of as ‘Farner Dreams.’

    OK, I have lots of dreams. If you sleep a lot, then you have a lot of dreams. Nobody enjoys ‘resting their eyes’ more than me.

    Still, after 32 years of doing this job, my eyes are wide open when it comes to seeing what Bullitt County needs in terms of sports and recreation facilities in our community. At this point, there are varying levels and success stories for what is already present.

  • What a blast

    The allure of the 25-cent ice cream cones was too much for Olivia Cunningham to resist at the 8th annual Bullitt Blast, held on July 4 at Paroquet Springs Conference Center.

    There was music, rides, cars, military equipment, animals and the finale - fireworks.

  • U-12 Blue Lick All-Stars head to state after runner-up finish

    LOUISVILLE - Sometimes championships are won and lost in the early rounds of a tournament.

    And sometimes, the play of a team throughout the tournament will earn the squad a spot in the state tournament.

    Both scenarios played a part in the Blue Lick All-Stars earning a berth in the state tournament to be contested this week at Okolona.

    After an easy victory over Fairdale in the opener, Blue Lick played the host Prairie Village team in the winner’s bracket final on Friday evening. It was an epic contest as the visitors won 6-5 in eight innings.

  • Shepherdsville continues path to getting rid of homes that have become dangerous

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - For the past several years, Bill Holland and his neighbors have watched things going on at a vacant structure on Sixth Avenue.

    Some of the things Holland has seen haven’t been pleasant.

    But, thanks to a new initiative by the Shepherdsville City Council, the property at 240 Sixth Avenue is the fourth structure to be demolished.

    Under the new nuisance abatement ordinance approved by the city council, code enforcement officer Jim McAuliffe said it has been much easier to remove abandoned property.
