  • Donors invited to contribute to Kosair; see funds matched

    Kosair Charities is excited to continue an initiative dedicated to the non-profits serving children, including some in counties surrounding Louisville.

  • City looks to make sure developers properly install subdivision streets

    SHEPHERDVILLE - The Shepherdsville City Council is seeking assurance of its own surety bonds.

    Last month the council agreed to take over maintenance of streets in the Heritage Hill area after the original property owner declared bankruptcy.

    Because the city did not have a concrete surety bond ion place, the company was not required to maintain the streets.

    To avoid similar future issues, the city is now looking at proper surety bond regulations and procedures for future developers.

  • East, Central both hosting key games

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first of many big nights of high school basketball in the area will take place on Tuesday of this week with showdown battles at both Bullitt East and Bullitt Central in girl/boy doubleheaders.

         In Mount Washington, it will be the annual early season showdown between Bullitt East and Sixth Region rival Butler.

  • Some is good, some work to be done by BC

     BARDSTOWN – The Bullitt Central Cougars got the 2014-15 season off to a quick start on Tuesday as they bolted to a 23-6 lead after one quarter and then the maroon and gray cruised past Thomas Nelson 60-36.

         A year ago, Bullitt Central made the short trip over Highway-245 to the new school in Nelson County and lost. Later in the season, the maroon and gray beat the Generals in Shepherdsville.

  • Lady Eagles win, but boys fall in OT

     HEBRON ESTATES – The first games of the 2014-15 season were worlds apart for the two basketball teams at North Bullitt High School.

         The girls’ team, playing on the road Wednesday, busted out of the gate and never looked back as they easily defeated North Oldham 71-41 after leading 26-4 after the first quarter.

  • Bullitt East FFA program selected to be among Kentucky's top 10

     The Bullitt East High School agriculture program is one of the Top 10 in Kentucky.

    Agriculture students placed fifth in the writing assessment on end-of-course out of 138 programs across the Commonwealth during the 2013-2014 school year.

    Brandon K. Davis, State Supervisor of Agricultural Education for the Kentucky Department of Education, applauded the effort.

  • Lady Chargers win opener North

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Outscoring visiting Presentation in each quarter, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers got the 2014-15 season off on the right foot on Tuesday of last week as they beat the Toppers 70-51.

         The Lady Chargers jumped out to a 19-9 lead and were never seriously challenged the rest of the way.

         It was actually the second game of the season for Presentation as they had won the night before, beating Waggener 62-49.

  • Sharpe explodes for 30, but Chargers not sharp in win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – An ugly win or a pretty loss?

         If given a choice, most high school coaches will take the first choice including veteran Bullitt East mentor Bob Blackburn. Still, that said, that doesn’t mean the coach has to be beaming after the ugly win. He just has to accept it.
