  •  CLERMONT—The race is on to find a cure for pediatric cancer and over 480 runners refused to let bad weather hold them down.

    The first annual Fight Foundation 5K, hosted at Bernheim Forest, was postponed a day due to dangerous thunderstorms in the area. However, the turnout was still plentiful as men, women, children and dogs made the 3.1-mile hilly journey to raise money for the cause.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Like horses in the Kentucky Derby, members of the Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency’s Senior Center are prepared to travel the distance.

    The senior center hosted its annual Kentucky Derby party, complete with a Derby Hat contest and horse racing fun and games.

    The Radial V.O.I.C.E. Team (Volunteer Out In the Community Endeavors) attended this year’s party to offer something more to celebrate: The team made a donation of $5,000 to the Shepherdsville senior center location to be used for transportation services.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Twelve score and two years ago, our forefathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal… an action that has led to widespread celebration throughout the country on July 4.

    In Bullitt County, the biggest celebration is the Shepherdsville City Fair and Bullitt Blast, which takes place the weekend prior, June 29-30, at Shepherdsville City Park.

  •  HILLVIEW - It’s the North End’s biggest annual neighborhood party.

    Three days of fun have been scheduled for the 2018 Hillview City Fair presented by the Zoneton Trowel Club. This year’s event will take place June 21-23 at the Hillview Government Center.

    Plenty of rides, games, food, music and pageants are on the three-day schedule, with opportunities to also assist local charities, according to fair organizer Tony Thompson.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON— Every student learns differently but more often than not, there isn’t time to try multiple ways to get one lesson across. When it comes to drug prevention, though, Mount Washington thinks it’s worth the work.

    In “Truth and Consequences: The Choice is Yours” eighth graders from both Mount Washington and Eastside Middle schools were given the unique opportunity to “live through” bad decisions like hiding drugs in their lockers or covering for a sibling who may be using.

  •   CLERMONT - For many Bullitt Countains, the fair feels like home. 

    This year, the old house will see some renovations, while blending in some old with some new.

    The Bullitt County Fair will take place June 11-16 at the Bullitt County Fairgrounds.

    Fair Board president Jimmy Anderson said patrons will notice most of the renovation work, thanks to a matching grant from the Kentucky State Fair Board.

  •  In 1858, before the Civil War, but just after the railroad had made its way to Shepherdsville and beyond, the Presbyterian families living in the area elected to join together and form a new church.

    Seeking a name for their new congregation, they turned to the Bible and selected Hebron, both because that was where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had dwelt, and perhaps more importantly, because Hebron means society, friendship, and union.

  •  HEBRON ESTATES - Each year the North Bullitt High School Youth Services Center presents its “Day of Shattered Dreams” event to warn senior students about the dangers of impaired driving prior to their prom.

    This year’s event theme was Eagles Soaring Purpose: Death Defying Decisions.

    The event included a fatal wreck scene, with students and their family members portraying an accident caused by drunk driving.

  •  Traditional Memorial Day observances were held at the Bullitt County Courthouse and at the Lebanon Junction Post Office. 

    In Shepherdsville, the American Legion Post organized the service.

    In Lebanon Junction, the VFW Post once again organized the observance. Bob DeVore was one of the many speakers at the LJ service.
