  • What happened to Shep. Roller Mill?

     The Shepherdsville Roller Mill was located on 4th Street in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.  The Roller Mill was a wooden structure large enough to use as a Roller Mill.

    The Roller Mill was a new method of grinding Meal and flour from the older method of the water wheel.     The Roller Mill Company was a part of what was formerly known as the Tile Factory Lot.  In 1913, the property owner was Maraman and Company.  

    The Property sold at Public Auction and the property was sold to C.L. Croan.

  • Situation with fire department has just gotten more complex

     Quite honestly, we thought our unprecedented move last Wednesday to ask Southeast Bullitt fire chief Julius Hatfield to resign would be a bit anticlimatic.

    With a meeting planned of the private fire department board after our holiday deadlines last Tuesday, our thought was that by the time the paper came out, Hatfield would have announced the previous night that he was stepping down in light of the recent events which cast shame upon the image of Bullitt County.

  • Various local agencies, mayors ask SEB fire chief to resign his position

     The following was drafted and approved by the mayors of Shepherdsville, Mount Washington, Hebron Estates, Hunters Hollow, Pioneer Village and Lebanon Junction, as well as the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce, the Bullitt County Economic Development Authority and the Shepherdsville-Bullitt County Tourist and Convention Commission in asking that Julius Hatfield resign as fire chief of the Southeast Bullitt Fire Department:

    Julius Hatfield is only one man and he does not represent the sentiments of our community. 

  • What teachers can tell us parents

     Report cards have been around for as long as schools. 

    Many of us still have our old report cards tucked away in a box somewhere and once in a while, we’ll see one dating back many decades and wonder how that child turned out. 

    As interesting as they may be in a historical sense and as a tool to bring forth old memories of a particular teacher or period of time, today’s report card is much more than an assignment of percentages mastered in a particular content area.

  • Thanks to young man

     My husband is in very poor health and is unable to do many things for himself. 

    I went to the grocery on this rainy Thursday afternoon and on my return found that my husband had fallen on the front porch. 

    Before I got out of the car a young man walking home from Bullitt Central had heard my husband’s call for help and responded immediately. This young man was able to get my husband inside and into his recliner with no help from either my husband or myself.

  • Elvis still lives in the eyes of many of biggest fans

     “The King” Lives

    Recently, I had the pleasure of spending some time with Elvis. Even though he may have been dead for almost 40 years, he is still very much alive to some of his fans from Bullitt County and Louisville.

    The five-plus members call themselves the Taking Care of Business for Elvis Fan Club because that was his moto.

    All of the women agreed, they were drawn by his great looks and singing, but also the person he was.

  • Let us give much thanks

     It is that time each year that we take a few moments to give thanks.

    No matter our situation, there should always be an opportunity to thank others for what we have in life.

    Sometimes, we don’t have everything that we want. Others may not even have everything that we need.

    While the millions of dollars spent on elections could be put to better uses, that is not reality.

    Instead, we help others when we can without the need for any praise or publicity.

    We help ourselves as much as possible.
