    The lights hadn’t dimmed before the question was whether the Shepherdsville City Council should be expecting a lawsuit?

    The question came after the city council approved Sunday liquor sales for Precinct 18A for USGA certified golf courses.

    In Shepherdsville, that means that only the Heritage Hill golf community would be allowed to have Sunday liquor sales.

    For the owners of the golf course, it really isn’t about liquor sales. That is a small percentage of its bottom line.

  • Some holiday favorites are tradition

    Traditional holiday meals are closely tied with that family ‘feel good’ when everyone is together and enjoying each other’s company and sharing food.

    While there may be a slight hesitation to convert Grandma’s perfect pumpkin pie into low fat, it may be well worth it to slide some healthier options to the table for taste tests that may surprise you.

    Low fat and recipe makeovers do not always sound good, however these two have become staples in our household and no one has ever noticed nor complained!

    We can talk about the changes in the White House and the number of new faces who will adorn local governmental offices at the start of the new year.

    But now is the season that communities like Bullitt County shine. It is the holiday season.

    We shine not because of the bright lights that hang from our homes or the displays in Shepherdsville City Park.

    The illumination comes from the kindness and generosity shown by so many in this community.
