  • Don't be part of a holiday statistic

    Thousands of people die or are injured in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes each year in the United States. In Bullitt County there were 98 collisions involving drinking drivers and 14 collisions involving drivers under influence of drugs in 2007 (KSP Traffic Report, 2007).

    The Bullitt County Partners In Prevention Coalition members urges Bullitt County residents to avoid driving while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs during this holiday season. Don’t turn what should be a happy season into a lifelong bad memory for your family.

  • Success allows Neal to help others

    Michael Neal is "paying it forward" in a most positive way.

    The concept of helping others as a way of paying back for the help received began with Benjamin Franklin, circa 1784. Michael has just completed his first Cooper/Clayton Smoking Cessation Clinic as a volunteer facilitator.

  • What does city do now on Sunday sales?

    The lights hadn’t dimmed before the question was whether the Shepherdsville City Council should be expecting a lawsuit?

    The question came after the city council approved Sunday liquor sales for Precinct 18A for USGA certified golf courses.

    In Shepherdsville, that means that only the Heritage Hill golf community would be allowed to have Sunday liquor sales.

    For the owners of the golf course, it really isn’t about liquor sales. That is a small percentage of its bottom line.

  • Some holiday favorites are tradition

    Traditional holiday meals are closely tied with that family ‘feel good’ when everyone is together and enjoying each other’s company and sharing food.

    While there may be a slight hesitation to convert Grandma’s perfect pumpkin pie into low fat, it may be well worth it to slide some healthier options to the table for taste tests that may surprise you.

    Low fat and recipe makeovers do not always sound good, however these two have become staples in our household and no one has ever noticed nor complained!

  • A little wild turkey chase for holidays

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Citizens and local officials are on high red alert due to a loose turkey now considered to be a vigilante outlaw.

    Godwyn T. Byrd, originally from Browningtown, had been selected as this year’s official Bullitt County turkey. Now he is public enemy number one according to Bullitt County Sheriffs.

    The alert was issued following a recent Bullitt Fiscal Court meeting. County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts was scheduled to pardon Byrd as part of a special Thanksgiving holiday ceremony.

  • 'Tis the time for all to shine

    We can talk about the changes in the White House and the number of new faces who will adorn local governmental offices at the start of the new year.

    But now is the season that communities like Bullitt County shine. It is the holiday season.

    We shine not because of the bright lights that hang from our homes or the displays in Shepherdsville City Park.

    The illumination comes from the kindness and generosity shown by so many in this community.
