  • BREAKING NEWS: Sunday alcohol sales to come to golf courses, but still a no-go at Shepherdsville restaurants

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If you wish to have a drink with your meal in Shepherdsville on Sunday, you will have to visit one of the top new golf courses in the United States.

  • Fire board takes heat from attorney over suspension
