     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- In the battle for First District magistrate, there will be a race between a total newcomer to the political circles and a man who has served several terms on fiscal court.

    The winner will replace Ruthie Ashbaugh, the current magistrate in the district that runs from western Bullitt County to Mount Washington.

    Michael Thomas was unopposed in the Democratic primary. This is his first political race.

    Dennis Mitchell won the Republican primary over Ashbaugh in an attempt to return to fiscal court, where he served 13 years.

     It is fast approaching the fun filled night of Halloween; the Shepherdsville Police Department wants to share with you some important tips to keep you and your family safe.  

    If your child is participating in a traditional “trick or treat” evening, always make sure you walk on the sidewalks and cross the street at the intersections.

  • Wantland, Webber bid for 26th District House

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - One candidate believes that he could be part of a philosophical difference in state government.

    The other believes he is someone that will be seen and be heard both in Bullitt County and in Frankfort.

    The race for the newly-revamped 26th District will pit Republican incumbent Russell Webber and Scott Wantland, a Democrat making his first run at office.

    SCOTT WANTLAND

    A major concern of Wantland the past two years has little to do with what side of a political aisle a person takes.

  • Local woman survives another type of cancer

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Stephaine Raymond is 30 years old and a cancer survivor. 

    But not the kind we typically hear about.

    The resident of eastern Bullitt County was diagnosed with endometrial or uterine cancer two years ago.

    “Most young women think they can’t get it because it’s usually found in women 55 and older, but a lot of younger women are getting it now,” she said.

  • A little spooky script for your Halloween season

     These days every time something takes place it is immediately shared throughout the world at such a frenzy that people freak out.

    Topics such as ISIS or ebola put society in an immediate state of shock, worry and panic.

    As a change of pace, it’s time to get back to simpler times. I have again searched around locally for good old-fashioned ideas to use as topics for scary Halloween movies.

    And without further adieu, here’s this year’s list, presented as always in B-movie promo fashion, of Halloween movie ideas.

  • North advances, but BE and BC eliminated

      HEBRON ESTATES – For the second time in three seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles advanced to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Volleyball Tournament, but the reward is a daunting one.

    After winning the 24th District title a week earlier, coach Cecilia Boston’s team was rewarded with a home match on Monday against Doss, a team they had defeated during the regular season. The Lady Dragons put up a fight, but North Bullitt won 25-20, 25-18, 25-19.

  • Mercy gets past East...again

     HIGHVIEW - Mercy Academy is where Bullitt East soccer coach Steve Gentry wants to program to be.

    However, that doesn’t come without a lot of work.

    For yet another season, the Mercy Jaguars ended the post-season for the Lady Chargers with a 3-0 victory in the Sixth Region title game on Saturday evening.

    “I thought we came out a little flat tonight,” said Gentry. “I find that hard to believe you come out flat in a regional final but I think you have to give Mercy a lot of credit for that.”
