  • 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.

  • Ridley ‘picks up’ Eagles in 23-9 victory

    ST. MATTHEWS - The night didn’t start out well for senior Travis Ridley.

    His North Bullitt Eagles were driving the ball down the field against the host Waggener Wildcats.

    After Ryan Collins got the ball to the 1-yard line, Ridley was poised to score the first touchdown of the game.

    As he tried to stretch the ball over the goal line, it was knocked loose and Waggener recovered.

    But the two-way starter more than made up for the mistake as North Bullitt defeated Waggener 23-9 on Friday night.

  • Latest zoning proposal way out of MW box

    Way outside the box.

    That’s the only way to describe a proposal in Mount Washington to rezone a stretch along both sides of Highway 44 from the eastern to the western corporate limits of Mount Washington.

    The proposal would rezone all that property to B-1 Highway Business.

    As observers to the growth in the county over the past 20 years will recognize, there have indeed been many rezonings to commercial classifications along all parts of Highway 44.

  • A black night for Charger football

    SHELBYVILLE - Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong on Friday night for the Bullitt East Chargers as they were bounced by a resurgent Shelby County team 63-15.

    In fact, things were going badly for the Chargers long before they arrived in Shelbyville on Friday. A team already hampered by injuries was short four more key starters for a variety of reasons. Three of the four players were dressed and on the sideline but did not play including the team’s two leading running backs and two top receivers..
