  •  Christmas is just a few weeks away! If you are like me, there always a few people on your list who are hard to buy for. So let me suggest you give the gift of music, reading or entertainment this holiday season. 

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE—Local business owner Joe Bohannon was sitting in his warm home a few weeks ago, enjoying some Christmas music and preparing for “Giving Tuesday” when it hit him that not everyone in Bullitt County could say they were able to do the same.

    As a board member of the Bullitt County Housing First coalition,  Bohannon thought of the multiple homeless camps scattered throughout the county and decided he couldn’t ignore the issue.

    Thus, “Homeless Joe and Friends’ 12 Days of Christmas” was born.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Cougar Buddies worked together to help a team even more important that the high school football squad.

    Cougar Buddies consist of Bullitt Central High School football players mentoring younger students from Shepherdsville Elementary, meeting each week for various programs and projects.

    Students young and old worked together to create friendly Christmas cards to be distributed to United States Army troops deployed overseas this season.

  •  LEBANON JUNCTION—Just like the cold doesn’t bother an ice princess, Lebanon Junction proved they won’t let the rain bother them as the city showed up to celebrate Light Up Lebanon Junction.

    Mayor Larry Dangerfield told the attendees how he had reconnected with some friends from the ‘70s earlier in the day and how he realized some of the best memories he had were from things others had set up.

    “We’re starting traditions here that are going to make those memories for the future generations,” he said.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON—The lights are lit and the holiday season is in full bloom in Mount Washington.

    Warmer weather than normal brought out one of the largest groups to experience the joy of Santa and Mrs. Claus riding in a carriage down Main Street, a live nativity with a petting zoo and plenty of local food to experience.

    The Bullitt East Marching Band and Choirs performed, as did the First Baptist and Mount Washington Elementary choirs.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - The HOPE in Bullitt County program (Helping Out People Everywhere) hosted its annual Thanksgiving community meal this year at the Shepherdsville Community Center.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Bullitt Central High School junior Dallas Branham earned First Place in Special Talent at the Kentucky and National Senior Beta Convention.

    Dallas performed a three-minute contemporary/acrobatic style dance which garnered him a trophy.

    “I felt good about the performance but was still a little shocked to be named for First Place,” said the 16 year-old son of Rhonda and Brian Branham. “Everything was so loud and people were screaming so I had to ask someone what happened and they said, ‘You won!”.
