  • BE explodes offensively

        LEBANON JUNCTION - In the heart of downtown Lebanon Junction, the old Mullins Grocery sits vacant next to the railroad track.

        Before moving forward, Taylor came before the Lebanon Junction City Council to listen to their suggestions on possible businesses.

  • The Next Star 2010: BBB Inquiries Suggest "Buyer Beware" Approach

    The Better Business Bureau has warned consumers for years about talent search firms whose primary goal is to collect money from would-be models, singers or movie stars.  Some talent search businesses are mostly interested in taking financial advantage of the ambitions of people seeking to become a star, and not-so-much interested in identifying talent or advancing the career of the people who audition or try out.

     

  • Two arrested in Shepherds Glen burglary

        The mother saw the suspects and was able to provide descriptions and directions of travel to the 911 operator on her cell phone. Responding officers spotted the suspects and both were taken into custody.

  • Lady Cougars never found the right formula

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There was more than one time this winter when Bullitt Central Lady Cougar basketball coach Bryan Bates thought his young team had finally turned the corner and consistent strong play was at hand.

        Within a week of those thoughts, the veteran coach was pretty much back to scratching his head and looking for answers.

        On a team with just one senior, some inconsistency is to be expected. The Lady Cougars lived up to that expectation.
