  • Could this be the time when fire agencies really looking to settle?

     Pinch us to make sure it is really true.

    For the first time in over a year, it looks like the Southeast Bullitt Fire and Rescue Department and the Southeast Bullitt Fire Protection District Board might actually be looking to settle their differences.

    I know... we’ve been here before.

    About 15 months ago, it appeared the two boards would be working toward a mutally-agreeable resolution.

    By January 2017, the two entities would become one. And you know what happened then.

  • Old Shepherdsville Pioneers Cemetery: Jacob Troutman is buried there

     The Old Shepherdsville Pioneers Cemetery is located on West Plum Street between 1st and 2nd streets in Shepherdsville, Kentucky. 

    The Cemetery is located near the Salt River.  The Cemetery has been through several floods.  

    There were about 300 graves found in the Cemetery, but only a little over 100 marked graves were read. 

  • Summer may have just started, but fall is fast approaching

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The baseball All-Star game was just last week, the Fourth of July is still a vivid memory and summer has officially been with us for less than a month.
        The not so tactfully named ‘dead period’ is well...dead and gone for another summer.
        Yet fall starts next Friday.

  • What does make America great?

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Local officials remain uncertain as to whether the United States Flag will still be seen flying over the Bullitt County Courthouse by the dawn’s early light on July 5.

    A growing fear appears to be taking hold of the community as political opponents are using Independence Day as a tool in their ongoing fight to claim their own perceptions of what makes America great.

  • Plenty of entertainment at Renfro Valley

     We have often drive by Renfro Valley on our way to the Smoky Mountains. “The Valley” is only about two hours away from Shepherdsville. 

    This summer after stumbling upon www.renfrovalley.com we decided to make “The Valley” and Berea a weekend summer get-away, and are we glad that we did!

    This area may just be one of the most overlooked destinations in Kentucky. It offers some great shopping, handmade artisan crafts, delicious eating, and great family shows.

  • Year makes big difference for Davis, board

     What a difference a year makes.

    After getting a few tough scores last year in his evaluation from school board members, superintendent Keith Davis got top grades this time around.

    There were glowing comments from board chairperson Debby Atherton and Davis was also very pleased with the marks.

    No one will agree with anyone in leadership 100 percent of the time. Even with the most popular of leaders, there will always be someone who is not pleased with the status quo.

  • Virginia Beach great destination

        Each summer we try to do a big road trip to some place new.
        This summer we chose Virginia Beach. Virginia Beach is as good as it gets without going to the West Coast and it’s a lot closer (only about 10.5 hrs).
