  • Endangered Species Act

     The Endangered Species Act is supported by 90% of Americans, and has had remarkable success in bringing back manatees, bald eagles, and wolves and money more from extinction.

  • Room in the Inn

     Congratulations to the new mayor and new city council in Shepherdsville.

    The year 2017 will be a great one for the city of Shepherdsville. Heart of My City volunteers (providing family and individual shelter for the homeless/displaced with short-term stabilization through our Room in the Inn program) hope the new leadership will cut through the bureaucratic red (or blue) tape to grant limited use of the Shepherdsville Community Center as a transitional location in the early morning hours while our vans transport guests to work and/or school.

  • Seum applauded for work

     The Kentucky Chamber applauds Senate Majority Caucus Chair Dan Seum on his leadership to make right-to-work legislation a reality during the first week of the 2017 General Assembly, ensuring Kentucky is a state where businesses want to locate.

  • Thanks from family

     The family of William L. (Billy) Dezern would like to thank the Hillview community, our family and friends for their support through our loss of Billy.

    We received an abundance of prayers, lov and help.

    Thanks to Lee Basham (Go Fund Me), T-shirt donations by Stacy Johnston and Joe Bohannon; and all the contributions that assisted us through the most difficult times in our lives.

  • Shepherdsville Lions looking for members to join organization

        The Shepherdsville Lions Club has been serving our community since 1945.  That’s a seventy-two-year tradition of civic volunteerism.  Unfortunately, like many public service organizations in this day, the Shepherdsville Lions Club is now struggling to survive.  After 72 years, the club needs your help, your active membership, if it is to continue.

  • Thanks June

     I would like to publicly express my gratitude to June Daugherty, director of the Bullitt County YMCA, upon her recent retirement. 

    June has been an avid advocate for our community as she grew the YMCA into what it has become today. 

    Over the course of her career, June has acted as a teacher, fund-raiser, promoter and manager of the YMCA’s programs, assets and personnel while maintaining the organization’s Christian emphasis. 

  • Recognize School Board

     Our community is blessed. We have a successful public school system with incredibly engaged students in grades K through 12 and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.

    A vital component of the progress of our district – and thus our community – is the leadership provided by the members who make up the Bullitt County Board of Education. 

  • Thank you Shepherdsville

     At this writing, my term on the Shepherdsville City Council ends in twelve days. I am very thankful to the wonderful people of Shepherdsville for allowing me to work on their behalf the last six years. It has been an honor and privilege to represent you in city government. The confidence and trust “you the people” have given me is deeply appreciated and valued. My sincere thanks to all of you.

  • Thanks Sharon Kelty

     The Stepping into Freedom group would like to recognize Mrs. Sharon Kelty. Every Monday at 6:30 p.m. at Journey Church in Shepherdsville, Sharon teaches a faith-based 12-step group.

    She goes above and beyond to help us. She makes sure the group has everything we need and, if not, she points us in the right direction to get it.

    She also does church services every other Tuesday at the Bullitt County Jail for the female inmates.

    She always brings a smile and a great attitude wherever she goes. We are so incredibly grateful to her.

  • Shepherdsville Light Up Success

     Our second City Sponsored parade and display light up at City Hall is over  and again a huge success! 

    And again I need to thank a group of guys that if not for them it just wouldn’t be possible and that is our  Public Works Department (Tom LaFollette, John Bradley, Mark Branham, Josh Edwards, Mike Leslie, Pete Plush, Christian Ramsey and Scotty Smothers) and our Sewer Department (Scott Fleming, Rocky Price, Jeremy Keith and Pat Welsh).
