  • Late season hitting slump reversing early BC edge

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A late season batting funk led to a pair of losses last week for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

        During one four game stretch early in the season the Cougars had at least 11 hits in each game. Last week the team had ten hits in losses to Seneca and Oldham County.

  • All eligible must receive benefit of hazardous duty retirement

        When you are young, the only thing that matters in the paycheck is the bottom line.

        As you get a little older, benefits such as insurance, retirement and savings means a little more.

  • Eagles hang on to beat Southern 9-7

        HEBRON ESTATES - The game really had little bearing on the post-season for either team, but don’t tell that to the players from North Bullitt or Southern.

        More than any other sport between the two neighbors, the baseball players always look at this as one of the biggest games of the season. That is because of the lifetime of rivalries the players have developed growing up in the Blue Lick and Okolona Youth League programs.

  • Remember to send in your Census info

        Many may feel that filling out the Census information every 10 years is a waste of time.

        It isn’t.

        In fact, it is more important than most people realize.

        And plus, the federal government just spent $85 million sending out letters recently telling you that Census information is coming your way.

        Make that investment count by filling out the information forms as accurately as possible.

    When all the medical officers have retired for the night and silence and darkness have settled down upon those miles of prostrate sick, she may be observed alone, with a little lamp in her hand, making her solitary rounds.” (cited in, The Life of Florence Nightingale by E.T. Cook (1913) Vol 1, p 237)
