  • Coping name of game for those hit by storms

     In Kentucky, it’s difficult to picture the threat of a hurricane. Yes, there are tornados and ice storms, but how do you react when 130 miles per hour winds are headed your way and your wife is 39 weeks pregnant? How about when you and your dog just became Floridians a year ago and your children and grandchildren keep calling to make sure you’re prepared?

    For 74-year-old Joyce Antons, the worried phone calls from family up north sealed the deal.

  • Two charged, officer hurt as two men arrested

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — A Shepherdsville police officer was injured when a suspect on a minor traffic stop fled on foot.

    On Sept. 11, the Shepherdsville Street Crimes Unit stopped a vehicle on Raymond Road around 8:07 p.m.

    The stop was for a minor traffic violation. When officers checked, both the driver and his passenger had active warrants.

  • Christmas comes early for those who live in Shepherdsville

     There was a bit of apprehension among members of a committee working to beautify the city of Shepherdsville.

    What would the people think if the city spent some money to install Christmas decorations this year?

    We think they would be overjoyed.

    We think many would say that it is about time the city looked at ways to beautify the community, especially a downtown area which has suffered for years.

    We think, unfortunately, that most citizens and business owners won’t care.

  • County must resolve issue or it will continue to ‘dog’ officials

      We hope by the time gets into your hands that the county will have made a big decision on the future of its animal control program.

    The future of its program has been in a state of flux for months.

    Animal control officer Mark Williams had come under heat of the county judge. In fact, Melanie Roberts fired Williams but fiscal court members voted to reinstate him.

    But, he almost immediately went on medical leave, which is perfectly legal.

    The problem is that the 12-week period of his medical leave has passed.

  • Two teams looking for answers meet Friday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first five weeks of the high school football season have really raised more questions than they have answered for local football teams.

    That is most certainly the case for both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt as they get ready to collide in the 42nd renewal of The Game on Friday in the Cougars’ lair.

    Last year, both teams came into the first district game of the season with 4-1 records and both coaches pretty much knew what they had.

  • City hopes to bring Christmas cheer in new way

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

    The Shepherdsville City Council endorsed the purchase of $8,000 in new Christmas decorations in what the beautification committee hopes is just the beginning.

    Committee chairperson Lisa Carter was in Gatlinburg recently and ran across a dealer who handles holiday decorations.

    In her wish list of 37 items, Carter could receive a 20 percent discount, no taxes since it would be sold out of state and free delivery.

  • Eastside’s Anne Lopez finalist for top science, math honors

    “I was shocked, overjoyed and surprised,” she said.

    Lopez will be officially honored at the Kentucky Science Teachers Association conference, November 10-11, at the Lexington Convention Center.

    Applications for the award were due several months ago but, during a busy summer, Lopez actually forgot about it.
