Eclipse Day becomes new holiday

 SHEPHERDSVILLE - One week prior to the much-anticipated total solar eclipse of 2017, Bullitt County’s school board voted unanimously Monday night to make Aug. 21 a professional development day, allowing all students and teachers a day off to enjoy the event.

Many children and teachers throughout the county celebrated with eagerness to partake of the major weather event. But not everyone in the county is happy, with one local resident protesting both the event and the school board’s decision.
