  • Snow again causes headaches in Frankfort

     Another major snowstorm rolls through the Commonwealth again this past week, forcing us to yet again cancel session days due to the treacherous road conditions and power outages at the Capitol. 

    With fewer days remaining before the 2015 Regular Session is scheduled to end on March 24th, much of our focus will be on the major bills of this session.

  • Mt. Washington Middle to see Irish footwork

     Louisville Irish Dancers will perform at Mt. Washington Middle School Tuesday, March  17,  at 9 a.m.

    Youth Service Center Coordinator Megan Hatter said the dancers will not only demonstrate the fancy footwork of the Irish but use their appearance as a teachable moment.

  • Local players have big impact on Mid-South hoops tourneys

     FRANKFORT – This past weekend’s Mid-South Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament had a distinct Mt. Washington flare as four residents took part including three former Bullitt East players.

    In fact, in Saturday’s two semi-final games, each of the four teams had one Mt. Washington player taking part and for the most part making key contributions.

  • SETTLED: SE Fire Board, department have deal

      CLERMONT -- Maybe it was relief. Maybe it was stress. Maybe it was just having the matter resolved.

    But David Blakeman, chairman of the Southeast Bullitt Fire Protection District board, was barely able to hold in his emotions Monday evening.

    And Tom Leach, chairman of the Southeast Bullitt Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department Inc., wasn’t much more composed.

    After dealing with tumultuous times the past four months, it appears that there will be an agreement reached between the two entities.

  • Bickett excels as teacher at her alma mater

     HEBRON ESTATES - Occasionally in sports the Most Valuable Player will also make the best play of the season.

    North Bullitt High School teacher Christy Bickett was crucial in one of the top moments of the past school year, when her AP Calculus class won the TI-Nspire Express Your Selfie Contest hosted by Texas Instruments, with the class receiving a live Skype interview with actress Mayim Bialik from “The Big Bang Theory.”

  • CHAMPS: Eastside carries home national cheer recognition

    “It was really exciting, especially for the kids because they practiced so hard,” said head cheerleading coach Carrie DeBold.

  • Mother Nature is kicking serious butt this season

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – I’ve always heard that ‘Father Time is undefeated’ and as I get older I know that be true.

    Still Mother Nature is giving Father Time a run for his money as the top pain in the behind when it comes to sports in the area during this time of year.

    It was a pretty normal winter sports season until the past few weeks. The first big snow cancelled a week of basketball and forced the postponement of the Kentucky State Wrestling Tournament.

  • KidsFest scheduled for Saturday
