  • Lebanon Junction residents to see little change to property tax bills

    LEBANON JUNCTION — City residents won’t see much of a change on their real and personal property tax bills this year.

    In the midst of water and wastewater treatment increases, council members agreed they didn’t want to put an additional burden on taxpayers.

    “I think with the water rates going up and with the other money coming in, we should keep them the same,” councilman Dion Collins said.

    The council passed the rates at its September meeting.

  • Mt. Washington VFD looks to build facility for trucks

    MOUNT WASHINGTON — Things are cramped at Mount Washington Fire Protection District’s Station 1 on Bardstown Road.

  • One win does not a rivalry make, but The War is hot

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Without a doubt, one win does not a rivalry make.

    That is true of any rivalry and very true of The War.

    Still, that said, Bullitt Central’s 30-27 victory a year ago in Shepherdsville sure has breathed new life into what was a morbid series for a handful of years. Remember, Bullitt East had won ten games in a row in The War and in the four meetings previous to Bullitt Central’s win, the Chargers had outscored the Cougars 169-19.

    First up will be the boys’ Region 3 tournament which will be contested on Monday. This will be an 18-hole event starting at 8:30 a.m.
