  • Project hopes to raise the awareness of homelessness

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — Saving the refrigerator box won’t just help a bored child build a rocket ship anymore: it can help bring awareness to homelessness. At least, that’s the idea behind Box City.

    “Our main goals were to raise awareness of the plight of the homeless in our community and to raise funds to aid Room in the Inn in our work with the homeless community,” said Pam Rogers, co-organizer of Heart of my City, said.

  • Easier, safer access to Cedar Grove now open

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The  construction of a new interchange on Interstate 65 was exciting.

    But, for those who travel Buffalo Run, the most important news is that getting back on Cedar Grove Road would become a much safer adventure.

    Shepherdsville City Councilmember Gloria Taft and Bullitt County Economic Development director John Snider opened Bison Court.

  • Lack of any elections may give chance to focus on issues

     In all practicality, there is never a time when there isn’t an election looming for somebody.

    But, for 2017, there will be no elections on the ballot in Bullitt County -- or Kentucky, for that matter.

    Why is that important?

    It should give elected officials at least a few months before they start worrying about how their decisions will affect their next test from the voters.

    Ok, so what does that mean to us, the people?

  • Eagles struggle on the road at Spencer tourney

     TAYLORSVILLE – Three days in Taylorsville before the holidays didn’t put the North Bullitt Eagles in a very festive mood.

    At least not as festive as they were a year earlier.
