    Mount Washington is about to receive a new symbol thanks to an approved bid for a new, larger tower.

  • East expects to contend in Sixth by March

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A high school basketball season is a marathon, not a sprint.

    That is why Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach Jason Couch isn’t nearly as worried about where his team is starting the 2017-18 season as he is excited about where the team could be when the post-season begins in late-February.

  • Shepherdsville police to leave notices of visits

     The Shepherdsville Police are leaving door hangers at locations they check during their patrols. This is similar to a program Hillview police has been using.

    The door hangers will have a place where officers can document the date, time, address, whether or not the location was secure and any notes they believe would be helpful to the property owner.

    The program has been in place for the past couple of weeks. If any property owner has a question, they can call 921-1000.

  • Book deals with homesickness for Kentucky

    CLERMONT— How do you describe homesickness?

    Is it possible to be homesick for a place you know little about?

    Why are Kentuckians so infatuated with their home state?

    These questions are what prompted Lexington native Jesse Donaldson to write 120 passages attempting to answer the age-old question: can we ever really go back home?

    Inspired by the 120 counties of Kentucky, “On Homesickness” features 120 passages dedicated to the various history, events, or make-up of each county.
