  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE—Like most good volunteers, Jeremy Willis didn’t start helping at the Bullitt County YMCA for the awards.

    In fact, when he was told he was selected as the 2018 YMCA Volunteer of the Year for the branch, he had no clue it was even a thing.

    “It’s always nice to be recognized but that’s not why we do it,” Willis said.

  •   It was a hot time at the old Bullitt County Fair last week.

    The week started out with some showers but the end of the festivities were hot, hot, hot.

  •  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.

  •  PIONEER VILLAGE — For 160 years, Hebron Presbyterian has served members of northern Bullitt County.

    The church celebrated at the church with a walk down memory lane.

    Displays lined the edge of the room showcasing the church’s history in categories ranging from weddings to old newsletters. Dozens of photo books featured hundreds of photographs taken at church events or of church members. A quilt was on exhibit that had been passed down through five generations of church members.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON—If the honeybees are gone, we’re gone.

    That’s local artist Travis Kelley’s motivation behind his newest project: Bee is for Bullitt County.

    After noticing the gourd production had dwindled four years ago, Kelley discovered it was due to lack of bees to pollinate the plants. He created a line of artwork called “Bee Somebody” to bring awareness to the situation.

    Today, Kelley is ready to get the rest of the county involved.

  •  CLERMONT – With a little help from her lucky dress, Alivia Cunningham made the move from first runner-up to Miss Bullitt County Fair on Monday, wearing the crown that narrowly eluded her last summer.

    Cunningham will now preside over the rest of the 2018 Bullitt County Fair on its six-day run that concludes on Saturday.

  •  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.

  •  Retiring educators received applause and accolades during an annual ceremony held at the Shepherdsville First Baptist Church Christian Education Building and sponsored by the Bullitt County Retired Teachers Association and Bullitt County Public Schools.

    Retirees and guests enjoyed a delicious catered meal by Jan Phelps followed by remarks about the importance of joining the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association by the one and only Debby Murrell.

  •  Each Sunday during the Memorial Day weekend, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 454 hosts a special service in Highland Memory Gardens in Mount Washington.

    This year’s celebration was the 26th.

    William (Bill) Roby was the keynote speaker this year.

    A large crowd came out to honor those who have fought for this country.

  •   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.
