    Many events will be hosted during the three-day holiday weekend to allow county residents an opportunity to pay their respects to those who have lost their lives serving our country, as well as to honor the many veterans that will be in attendance.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON — The forgotten war will be remembered in Mount Washington for generations to come thanks to a local student.

    Located in Highland Memory Garden in Mount Washington, Robby Smith, 17, designed a monument to honor Korean War veterans as part of his Eagle Scout project.

    Inspired by his grandfather, Smith knew he wanted to do an Eagle Scout project that would stay.

    “I wanted something I could come back in 30 years and show my kids and say ‘I did that’,” he said.

  •  A special exhibit filled the gym of Old Mill Elementary recently.

    Visitors from throughout the city walked in to find 79 historical statues placed in multiple rows. The statues stood quiet until the guest stepped on their button on the floor, activating the figure to come alive and share a monologue about his or her life.

Russell Webber with its ‘Champion of Faith, Family and Freedom Award’ for their principled and steadfast leadership over the last biennium,” said Kent Ostrander, president of the organization. 

    “The direction of the Commonwealth has changed significantly in the last two years, in no small part because of the dedication and labor of these two Bullitt County representatives.” 

  •  HEBRON ESTATES - The Bullitt County Relay for Life has seen many changes over the years.

    Most recently the venue has switched from the actual track at North Bullitt High School to a more condensed parking lot area with a makeshift track, which many patrons seem to favor for its proximity to all of the ongoing activities.

    The one remaining constant throughout the years is the gathering of local cancer survivors and their caregivers. The annual Relay Survivor and Caregiver victory laps mean more than just a celebration of victory, it’s their reward.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Four Republicans are battling for the right to face a lone Democrat in the fall general election.
