  • Common sense, research all part of talks

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Darrell Vincent recognized last year that when his high school students arrived later due to a two-hour weather delay, they acted differently.
    There was more interest and more energy.
    He knew that with a little more sleep, his students were better prepared to start learning when the bell rang.
    And there is plenty of research nationwide about the advantages of having high school students starting classes later in the morning.
    However, the mission given a committee to study the start times of Bullitt County students is not a simple one.

  • Snowy week results in productive week at home

     We started the week of February 16 with the record-breaking snow levels in some parts of the state, and it ended with record low temperatures in others.

    This can be applied to far more than making a business successful.
