  • 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).

  • The life and times of Sarah Courtney Taylor

  • Be ready to roll when practice starts

     You need that form filled out and signed for your child to play sports, so you dash off to the local retail clinic. Sound familiar? Probably too familiar, according to Drew Duerson, M.D.
