  • Man arrested on RV thefts in area

    HILLVIEW - When Teddy D. Stinson attended a recreational vehicle show in Louisville, he must have liked what he saw.

    But the Crestwood resident wasn’t apparently looking at the vehicles. He was looking at the flat screen televisions inside.

  • Neighbors encouraged to call on suspicions

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over the past few months, the number of burglary reports continues to grow in the county.

    But law enforcement officials believe the public could provide some valuable information.

    Sheriff’s chief deputy Danny Thompson said many of the break-ins will occur during the daylight hours.

    “We need neighbors to be a little more nosy,” said Thompson.

    Many times, the suspects will drive through neighborhoods looking at the community before deciding where to strike.

    CLERMONT - Bernheim Middle School seventh graders received the ultimate lesson.

    An event called “Ghost Out” was presented by seventh grade instructor Erin Mabe with assistance from instructional coach Karrie Stewart.

    The event was tied to a book read in school, “Tears of a Tiger,” which includes a story involving a drunk driving accident and making good life choices.

  • Public invited to listen to danger associated to prescription pills

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It’s become a fact of life in Bullitt County just as it has in other parts of the country: methamphetamine manufacturing, use and abuse.

    While meth remains a hot topic among those working toward a better society, another subtle topic has entered the awareness radar.

  • Education can’t afford to lose any traction in Ky.

    I often hear diametrically opposed statements about Kentucky’s schools:

    One, they’re a lost cause.

    Or two, they were “fixed” in 1990 by the Kentucky Education Reform Act, and they need no further attention.

    Neither conclusion is true.

    Now, KERA was a revolutionary event.
