  • County must look closely at tax issue

    There is not one individual who would support a tax increase.

    At the same time, few would want to see their government services cut.

    Local government agencies are not as privileged as the federal government. Simply printing more money is not an option.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court members will have an opportunity on Sept. 1 to determine its real property tax rate.

    In just brief conversations on Tuesday, it appeared there might be a possibility that court members could support a slight increase in the rate.

  • Man indicted for theft at Sunnyside Baptist

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - An individual has been indicted in the recent break-in at a church in western Bullitt County.

  • East looks for ‘mo’ heading into break

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Coming off the team’s worst performance of the season, Bullitt East has a chance to gain some much needed momentum on Friday as the team comes home to play Eastern.

    The game is important for gaining some confidence as the Chargers have an ‘open’ date next week on the schedule before playing three straight district games.

  • Homecoming to be big for the Eagles

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Eagles will return home on Friday and will be celebrating homecoming as they play host to Lexington Tates Creek High School.

    This will be the first every meeting between the two schools in football. North Bullitt has played Lexington schools in the past including Lafayette last season. Already this season, Lafayette beat Tates Creek 34-19 so the two teams this Friday should be on a level plane.

  • North Bullitt community mourns death of two-sport star, Reynolds

  • THE WAR: Second half power propels Cougars to victory

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Like two great heavyweights, Bullitt Central and Bullitt East kept throwing haymakers at each other on Friday in the 20th renewal of The War.

    In the end, a pair of long scoring drives in the second half proved to be the difference as the Cougars pulled out a 20-14 victory in a renewed rivalry that has suddenly sprung to the forefront of local football.

  • East puts handcuffs on foes in Bullitt Cup win

    HEBRON ESTATES - The Bullitt East Chargers made it two-for-two in Bullitt Cup Soccer titles Saturday as they swept their county rivals in the early season event.

    The Charges got the ball rolling on Friday when they defeated North Bullitt 6-0 behind the four goals of senior Rob Daugherty. After the Eagles defeated Bullitt Central 3-1 on Saturday morning, Bullitt East wrapped up the title with a 9-0 decision over Bullitt Central.

  • Planner position proposed but not in budget

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts would like to have more than a person in charge of the planning and zoning agency.

    She would like to have a county planner.

    In fact, she has a committee that has been studying the possibilities and applications have already been taken.

    There is one problem - there is no such job in the budget and Bullitt Fiscal Court members aren’t quite ready to jump on board.

  • Look outside the box great on MW issue

    While not arguing the merits of the proposal, we applaud the effort by Mount Washington councilmembers Dale Walter, Dennis Griffin and Larry Porter to deal with a tough issue.

    Mount Washington must build a new sewage treatment plant.

    And, to pay the debt service, the city needs additional revenue.

    Under the current plan, water and sewer fees have risen 17.5 percent and look to increase by the same number next year.
