  • Big game for Cougar fortunes

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The most important game to date in Bullitt Central’s football rejuvenation will come this Friday as the maroon and gray play host to district rival Doss in a key game for both teams.

    Doss is actually the defending district champions from a year ago before Bullitt Central dropped down to this district in Class 5-A. As Cougar head coach Danny Leasor is quick to point out, the winner of this game will be assured of hosting at least the first-round play-off game in the post-season.

  • KISS! It worked wonders for BC in the second half

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - During his first stint as the Bullitt Central football coach some 25 years ago, one of Danny Leasor’s favorite acronyms was KISS - which stands for ‘Keep It Simple Stupid.’

    It took the Cougar coach half a game on Friday to remember that philosophy.

    When Bullitt Central went KISS in The War, the maroon and gray found a lot of success.

  • Rain goes away, but no decision in 1-1 outcome

    HEBRON ESTATES - The rain cleared out after a 50-minute delay, but nothing was decided on the field as the North Bullitt Lady Eagles and the Bullitt East Lady Chargers battled to a 1-1 tie in the only regular season meeting this season between the two rivals.

    At 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the two teams took the field, but just before the opening whistle, a crack of thunder sent both teams back to their benches. Lightning a few moments later sent them to the gym at North Bullitt where the teams sat and waited for 40 minutes.

  • Officer off work due to being at gambling site

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A police officer that was at the scene of a gambling operation raid last month has been suspended without pay for 30 days.

    Through information secured by an open records request, Shepherdsville police chief Col. Doug Puckett confirmed that officer Brent Dawson had been suspended without pay, starting on Sept. 11.

  • Sanitation District receives grant to improve parts of sewer system

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - For a second time, the Bullitt County Sanitation District will get some assistance in upgrading its sewer system.

    The district has been awarded a Kentucky Infrastructure Authority grant of $150,000.

    According to district manager Jerry Kennedy, the funds will be used to install and to improve manholes in the Tanyard Springs/Bullitt Hills area.

    Currently, Kennedy said the system is old and infiltration of surface water makes the Bullitt Hills plant handle more than its capacity.

  • North needs 'mo' heading to district

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will get a last chance to build some momentum heading into the last four games of the regular season which also happen to be the four most important games of 2009.

    The final opponent in the six preliminary games for the green and gold will be Christian Academy when they pay a visit to town on Friday. It will be the first football meeting ever between the two schools.

  • BC moves to 5-0 with bigger games ahead

    LOUISVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars continue to win, notching victory number five on Friday, but the team continues to do it with less than a full effort for 48 minutes.

    Against the Waggener Wildcats on Friday, the Cougars capped their four game road swing with a 33-19 victory against a team that has now lost 18 straight games dating back to 2007.

    Bullitt Central is now 5-0 for the first time in 20 seasons. Just as importantly, the maroon and gray stand 1-0 in district play.

  • Eagles have no answer for Tates Creek QB

    HEBRON ESTATES - Homecoming week usually culminated with an excited crowd and an energetic football team.

    However, that wasn’t to be the case on Friday evening at North Bullitt High School.

    For whatever the reason, it was a subdued performance both on and off the field as the Eagles were defeated by an athletic Tates Creek team 29-7.

    The loss dropped North Bullitt to 2-3 on the season.

    “We took a big step backwards tonight,” said head coach Brett Newton. “This is the first step backwards that we’ve taken.”

  • Lebanon Junction Old Fashion Days Oct. 2-4: Festival has been important to this town for 60 years

    LEBANON JUNCTION — L&N Railroad Special Agent Elvin Doutaz knew that Lebanon Junction had been through a lot.

    By 1949, the town had weathered The Great Depression, the loss of the L&N Railroad terminal to Louisville and many businesses had went bust. But the town was still alive, and he wanted to prove it. He wanted his little railroad town to have an annual event that emphasized family, friends and community pride.

    Thus the Lebanon Junction Homecoming — now known as the Old Fashion Days Festival — was born.
