  • Paper is ‘way to know’ community

     Several years ago cyberspace was frenzied over many popular websites going dark for 24 hours to protest a federal bill meant to crack down on video piracy.

    The Stop Online Piracy Act – or SOPA – was a controversial and perhaps misguided effort championed by the Motion Picture Association of America to end illegal online sharing of copyrighted material, primarily movies and music.

  • Newspapers are still alive

     Imagine waking up in a world without newspapers. 

    You say, “I haven’t gotten a newspaper in years. But I’m not talking about just the paper delivered by carriers or the postal service. I’m talking about the news online, the links on social media, the email newsletter, the source cited in the television broadcast and the push notification on your phone.’

    The word newspaper no longer reflects the media industry encompassed by the word. 

  • Shepherdsville will slightly lower property tax bills for coming year

  • Fiscal court tables requests by cities for interlocal agreement on projects

        SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Two municipalities hoping to get some work done by the county road department will have to wait a little longer.
        Bullitt Fiscal Court tabled a pair of interlocal agreements with the cities of Mount Washington and Hillview.
        County attorney John Wooldridge said the court could table both proposals as they were not complete.
        Missing from both documents was an amount to be paid for the work to be completed.

  • Fiscal Court turns down first attempt to hire new planning administrator

        SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It appeared that there was a candidate to fill the vacant seat of planning administrator in Bullitt County.
        However, that appointment was not approved by members of Bullitt Fiscal Court.
        A panel interviewed four candidates for the planning administrator’s position, which was left vacant with the resignation of Brian Richardson.
        Deputy judge Lisa Craddock said the candidate who resides in Virginia was “heads and shoulders” above those interviewed.

  • Eagles move to 6-1 with win

        HEBRON ESTATES -- The defense was physical.
        The offense was efficient.
        And the North Bullitt Eagles played hard for 48 minutes.
        That resulted in a workmanlike 35-12 victory over Oldham County on Friday night.
        But the score really wasn’t that close as the visiting Colonels scored a pair of late touchdowns to close the final margin.
