  • Legislators will return for two more days during session

      FRANKFORT – The gavel dropped shortly before midnight on Wednesday of this week, recessing us until March 23rd for the veto period of the 2015 Regular Session.  And with only two days left to go until the session ends, several major issues remain unresolved.

  • Time arrives for recognition to distinguished educators in county

     When the central office was renamed in honor of retired superintendent Frank Hatfield, there was a who’s who of educational leaders who gathered.

    It was a great opportunity to honor a person who spent many years helping the field of education both in the county and throughout the state.

    With the recent passing of Marvin Stewart, another well-loved educator, it gave us reason to think.

  • No matter the facility, classes are necessary

     Watching the Bullitt County Education Corp. work the past couple of years has been one of those positive pleasures.

    With a vision to have Jefferson Community and Technical College expand its offerings in Bullitt County, the plans to move into a spacious facility off Highway 245 seemed to be close to reality.

    But reality does not become reality until the shovels start throwing dirt and the construction company begins work on a building.

  • New faces heating up rivalry between Bullitt track teams

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- There might not be a track for any local meets this season, or any season for the foreseeable future, but the area coaches and athletes seem to be doing a pretty good job of things despite the hurdles (or lack of hurdles).

  • Help right on target

     On behalf of the North Bullitt Archery Team, I would like to express my gratitude for the community’s support of the Eagle Fest, which was held on Saturday, March 14, at St. Aloysius gym.

    At the event, we had a date auction, a silent auction and live entertainment by Rock-Ola. Our goal was to raise $1,600 to purchase 10 new targets for the archers to use during practice.

  • Thank you to all

     Thank you does not cover the way we feel about the outpouring of love for Lawrence.

    To all friends and neighbors, we thank you. Special thanks to Donnie Snellen, Mike Spurlock and Kenny Holder. They’re like our brothers. 

    All of Lawrence’s buddies (there are too many to list), we thank you.

    We give much appreciation to Mark Williams, the Shepherdsville Police Department, the Hillview Police Department, Pioneer Village and the mayor. Special thanks to Bro. George Blevins, Bro. Jimmy and Martha, and Bro. Tim; we love you all.

  • KHSAA sanctions cornhole starting next fall

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Earlier this week, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted to sanction cornhole as a competitive sport starting with the 2015-2016 school year.

    Kentucky now becomes the first state to join the cornhole bandwagon and other southern states are soon expected to join the cornhole phenomenon.

    Adding cornhole is seen as a move to put the ugly ‘yard darts’ debacle in the rearview mirror for the KHSAA.

  • BBB Warns Flood Victims to Beware of Scams when Seeking Flood Damage Repairs

      As the flood water recedes in the local area, BBB serving Louisville, Southern Indiana, and Western KY is warning flood victims who are seeking flood damage repairs to beware of scammers.

    After going through a flood, people you do not know may knock on your door, offering discounted flood repair services. Some of these individuals may not be legitimate. Scammers travel to disaster areas to take advantage of those who want life to go back to “normal.” Some may claim your insurance agent or FEMA sent them to your home or business.
