  • Circuit clerks are active in their communities

     When you see the clerks in the Circuit Clerk’s office, there are many things you may not know about them.

    There are 19 full-time clerks in an office which, per the state’s own statistics, requires 25 full-time clerks.  16 of these clerks process all of the paperwork in the court system.  3 of the clerks work in the driver’s license division.

    Clerks in the District, Circuit and Juvenile divisions are the takers, not the makers.  Clerks can only process documents received. 

  • Linda Belcher honored by KDA for work to pass legislation

     FRANKFORT – The Kentucky Distillers’ Association (KDA) has honored state Rep. Linda Belcher with its prestigious “100 Proof Award” for her leadership in passing landmark tourism legislation that will elevate and transform the KDA’s Kentucky Bourbon Trail® adventures.

  • 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.
