  • Thornsberry steps down at Nelson County

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After two years at Nelson County High School as the head football coach, former Bullitt East player and assistant coach Kenny Thornsberry recently stepped down from that position.

    It was a pair of very tough years for Thornsberry and the Cardinal program as they lost 19 straight games before winning the final game of this season, beating Marion County 26-6. The program struggled with low participation numbers in both of Thornsberry’s seasons.

  • Plenty of fun events to tackle in winter

     2018 is off to a cold, wintery start. 12 days so far where the high has been BELOW freezing. Definitely not my kind of traveling weather, and I am willing to bet not yours either. To make the most of the winter months let me recommend some books, cds and dvds for your enjoyment. Plus if you got gift cards for Christmas you might be able to put them toward picking up these true entertainment gems. 

  • Painting Angels

     Just in time for the holiday season, a host of angels arrived in Shepherdsville during a painting night at the community center.

    Hosted by the Bullitt County Arts Council, teacher Cindy Rayhill, as well as Patsy Karr, Debbie Karr Shaw, LaVerne Arkenberg and Monica Rixman, guided over 20 local residents to explore their creative side and paint their own autumn-inspired angel. Each painter experimented with different colors and preferences, adding their own spin to each piece. The result was a host of colorful angels, each as unique as the painter.

  • Snow made for a light week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is no beating Mother Nature and you can’t schedule around winter weather.

    Area teams are once again learning that ages old lesson as more games have been postponed or cancelled over the last ten days than have been played. It didn’t look any better during the early part of this week either.

  • Southern loop may be dream really worth dreaming about

     Many years ago, officials in nearby Jefferson County thought they needed a loop around the southern portion of its community.

    At the time, there wasn’t a lot of growth. The area wasn’t particularly full of lavish, expensive subdivisions.

    And there probably weren’t a lot of votes to be had by aspiring politicians.

    Instead, the Gene Snyder Freeway was a dream. It is was completed a small piece a little at a time.

    And, who would have thought the two bridges over the Ohio River would be built?
