  • Week one was a learning experience for Chargers

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Nobody expected the Bullitt East Chargers to pick up exactly where they left off last season, despite being the sixth-ranked team in the state in the pre-season coaches’ poll.

        That was good, because the first week of the season proved to be a challenge for the defending Sixth Region and Semi-State champions as they could only post a 3-3 record. There was some good news in those results and some very frustrating points.

  • Strange to speak at state historical meeting

    FRANKFORT - Bullitt County will once again have a moment of positive statewide recognition on April 10, 2010, when David Strange will be the guest speaker at the Kentucky Historical Society meeting in Frankfort.

    The subject will be “Bullitt County Salt Making in the 1800’s and the Importance of Kentucky’s Salt Making Industry”.

    The Family History Workshop presentation “Researching in Kentucky Ancestors Magazine” begins at 10:30, followed by the “Kentucky’s Salt Industry” presentation.

  • House members get budget to the Senate

    FRANKFORTee"After nearly two months of work, and in the face of a $1.2 billion deficit, the Kentucky House of Representatives voted this past week for a two-year budget that streamlines state government while investing in the Commonwealth.

    Legislators have known for months that the budget would be difficult to write, given the nation’s worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

  • Plans come together for MW Spring Fest

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - With the Mount Washington Spring Festival mere weeks away, final preparations are underway and it promises to be better than ever with a new location and new attractions.

    This year’s theme is Small Town Pride.

    The festival will take place in the center of town along old Bardstown Road between Highway 44 and First Federal bank, beginning at about 5 p.m. on Friday, May 7, and concluding on Saturday night, May 8.

  • Graduation dates set for local high schools

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Old Man Winter was particularly grumpy this year and that is always bad news for the Bullitt County School District.

        The snowy and icy weather in early 2010 that caused several school day cancellations has pushed students’ last day to June 1 – and that date will remain only if no more days are cancelled.

        Members of the Board of Education voted recently to approve June 5 as the graduation date for Bullitt Central, Bullitt East and North Bullitt High Schools.

  • County approves bid to get BCHS pool prepared

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The county swimming pool next to Bullitt Central High School should be ready to go when the season starts in late May.

        Bullitt Fiscal Court, with the assistance of the YMCA of Bullitt County, agreed to a bid of Chester Pools of New Albany, Ind., to bring the facility into federal compliance.

        The project would include the removal of the old diving boards and leveling off of the pool’s bottom. The work would also fix the infiltration system to meet the federal safety standards.

  • Suit filed over abuse at school

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A teacher, as well as four administrators, have been named in a lawsuit filed by a 16-year-old student at Bullitt Central High School.

        The lawsuit filed against teacher Timothy Lands, principal Christy Coulter and assistant principals Andrew Pohlman, Willie Foster and Angela Moore, asks for unspecified damages.

        The civil lawsuit in Bullitt Circuit Court stems from an investigation leading to the suspension of Lands, a social studies teacher at the school.

  • Leaders must communicate with others to be effective

        Could the Bullitt County Parks pool next to Bullitt Central been repaired and open last summer?

        Maybe not.

        Having to make upgrades on its filtration system to meet federal safety standards and facing a large leak to fix, it may not have been possible to open the third of the county’s four pools.

  • Week honors public health environmentalists

        Every day, Bullitt County Environmental Health professionals (Registered Sanitarians) are on the job ensuring our Bullitt County is a safe place.

        This unique group of professionals help ensure the safety of restaurants, grocery stores, supermarkets, food production facilities, schools, hotels, motels, mobile home parks, public swimming pools, tattoo studios, and other health programs such as lead based paint, septic systems, radon, milk, water, quality assurance, animal rabies,  methamphetamine labs, and many more.
