  • JAG graduate returns to tell others about banking matters

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Katie Bell graduated from the JAG Program in August 2004, earning her General Education Diploma. Never in her wildest dreams did she think she would come back to JAG to encourage others and talk about money; but, she did.

    On March 19, 2009, Katie returned to the classroom to talk to JAG students about smart money management. Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) is a program offered by Bullitt County Adult and Community Education Program that helps individuals earn credentials, find employment and enter college and/or training programs.

  • BCHS, Roby get traffic control on regular basis

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over the years, the Shepherdsville Police Department has had traffic control officers working at Roby Elementary School.

    But, at times, the police officer was called away due to emergencies in other parts of the city.

    Now, the city is experimenting with having a person devoted to providing traffic control for not only Roby Elementary but also Bullitt Central High.

    Neal Cunningham, who most recently worked as a court bailiff at the judicial center for the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department, was introduced to the city council.

  • Lady Eagles stay hot; beat BC 5-1

    HEBRON ESTATES - It was a perfect week for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles as they added three more wins to the season including a 5-1 victory over Bullitt Central on Friday.

    It was the second win this spring over their county rivals for the green and gold, but this game was a lot closer than the earlier 10-1 game despite the fact that North Bullitt pitcher Cierra Hayes threw a no-hitter.

    North Bullitt impressed even head coach Eric Lambert earlier in the week when they beat Sixth Region rival Presentation 9-1. They followed that up with a 10-2 victory over Holy Cross.

  • Given chance, public fails in its duty to voice opinion

    Showing up early for Mount Washington’s public hearing on the proposed sewer plant upgrade and water/sewer rate hikes was really a waste of my time.

    I thought I would need to get there well ahead of the 7 p.m. start time to get a good seat and settle in for a long evening of reporting on questions, answers and testimony from concerned citizens.

    But much to my surprise — and to the surprise of many Mount Washington public officials — I didn’t need to get there early.

  • Like Harvey, integrity more important than awards

    Hello, Bullitt Countians! I'm Steve Thomas.

    As a former radio employee and a member of the media, the news of Paul Harvey's passing rang loud and clear in my mind, just as his voice did.

    Harvey did the absolute best news show in history, including his famous "The Rest of the Story" segments.

    In his honor, I tried to put together a story similar to one of Harvey's. It's not very easy, though.

    Rather, I'll discuss something that I now realize just might be the most important aspect of Harvey's career: Integrity.

  • Honors have flown freely for coaches and players

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – There has been no shortage of honors for a handful of local athletes now that the high school basketball season is complete.

  • Officials want proper count in 2010 census

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Carolyn Franklin came to Bullitt Fiscal Court to introduce her role as a member of the U.S. Census 2010 team.

    She left with more questions than answers.

    Franklin, a partnership specialist for the state, said her role was to promote the importance of everyone taking part in the upcoming Census.

    She said if people would return the forms, which will begin distribution next April, there wouldn't been the need to have census staff visit homes.
