    A year from now, things might be a whole lot different.

    No matter where you live in the county, road construction can be seen.

    For the past few months, repairs on Interstate 65 from about Highway 245 south to the Hardin County line have been underway.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Making the most of an open gym try-out late in the spring, Bullitt Central senior Zack Humphrey earned an invitation to join the program at Spalding University.

    As Humphrey recalled, it didn’t take much selling from Golden Eagle head coach Kevin Gray to get Humphrey to stay close to home for his college basketball.

    Of course, Humphrey didn’t mention to Gray that he was planning at attending the Louisville-area college if basketball was involved or not.

  • Young artists off to a solid foundation in the community

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - What better way to promote art’s future in the community than with a junior arts council?

  • Time to slow it down, pay more attention on road as school starts

     Believe it or not, classes will be starting for students in the Bullitt County Public School System next Wednesday.

    Just two months after classes dismissed in June, students, teachers, administrators, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and custodians are all back to work.

    For many, it has been a summer without a break.

    With this in mind, all those distracted drivers who are traveling too fast need to wake up.

    Put away the electronic devices and start paying attention to school buses on the road.
