  • County would ban smoking in government facilities

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Dorothy Biddle was appearing at Bullitt Fiscal Court as part of her nursing program requirements for a course at Bellarmine University.

    Little did she know that by the time she left the courthouse, there would be some changescoming to the way Bullitt County government officials deal with smoking.

    And most in the public learned that there are no state or local regulations that prohibit smoking in county government buildings.

    Biddle said her task was to find a local health issue and then attend a meeting to give her perspective.

  • Others begin to jump in 2014 races

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Several more candidates have gotten their names on the ballot for the 2014 election in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday.

    Since the Nov. 6 acceptance of candidates, several more have filed after the initial rush.

    In the race for sheriff, incumbent David Greenwell has filed for the Republican Party.

    Kevin Mooney, now running under the Republican Party flag, has filed for another term as Bullitt County clerk.

    For the position of coroner, Tim Hasting has filed as a Republican.

  • Officials satisfied with answers in HIP situation

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt County Attorney Monica Robinson had questions.

    So did Bullitt County Sheriff David Greenwell.

    To seek the answers, Robinson filed a motion to intervene into the case.

    But when all the questions were answered in the final order by Circuit Judge Rodney Burress, Robinson said there is no longer a reason for the parties to intervene.

    The case involving Misty Thompson drew media attention as the defendant was released without entering the county’s home incarceration program on Oct. 24.

  • Happy First Thanksgiving

     Students from Ms. Flynn’s and Mr. Kuhn’s kindergarten classes at Crossroads Elementary put on this play about the first Thanksgiving.

  • Time to give thanks to some other people in our community

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It is at this time each year that we reflect.

    We reflect on the things that we should be thankful for.

    We have our health. And we have our families. 

    All things to be thankful for.

    Many will thank the higher being of their own particular belief.

    Others will be thankful for their places of employment.

    But there are many others in which we need to take a few moments to thank - even though we may criticize them throughout the year.

    A big thanks goes out to our first responders.

  • Turkeys get their wings on for annual holiday

     The end of Thanksgiving in Bullitt County became a legitimate possibility this year following the overwhelmingly devastating assassination of the official county turkey.

    John Fitzgerald “Honey Glaze” Turkey was killed shortly after being pardoned by County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts and invited to her table for her Thanksgiving meal.

    The gruesome event took place as Honey Glaze and Roberts were riding in the back of a convertible limousine through downtown Shepherdsville to celebrate the pardoning.
