    Should the glass be half full or shall it be considered half empty?

    Such is the philosophical challenge we face when considering the recent revelation that there could possibly be an agreement between two feuding fire organizations.

  • Room in the Inn

     Congratulations to the new mayor and new city council in Shepherdsville.

    The year 2017 will be a great one for the city of Shepherdsville. Heart of My City volunteers (providing family and individual shelter for the homeless/displaced with short-term stabilization through our Room in the Inn program) hope the new leadership will cut through the bureaucratic red (or blue) tape to grant limited use of the Shepherdsville Community Center as a transitional location in the early morning hours while our vans transport guests to work and/or school.

        The Shepherdsville Lions Club has been serving our community since 1945.  That’s a seventy-two-year tradition of civic volunteerism.  Unfortunately, like many public service organizations in this day, the Shepherdsville Lions Club is now struggling to survive.  After 72 years, the club needs your help, your active membership, if it is to continue.

  • Thanks June

     I would like to publicly express my gratitude to June Daugherty, director of the Bullitt County YMCA, upon her recent retirement. 

    June has been an avid advocate for our community as she grew the YMCA into what it has become today. 

    Over the course of her career, June has acted as a teacher, fund-raiser, promoter and manager of the YMCA’s programs, assets and personnel while maintaining the organization’s Christian emphasis. 

  • Recognize School Board

     Our community is blessed. We have a successful public school system with incredibly engaged students in grades K through 12 and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.

    A vital component of the progress of our district – and thus our community – is the leadership provided by the members who make up the Bullitt County Board of Education.
