  • 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.

  • East needs late heroics to turn back Central

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - After rolling through the first game 25-8, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers probably didn’t think they were going to get a lot of court time Thursday night against Bullitt Central.

    They were wrong. The Lady Cougars roared back from the dead, winning the second game 25-22 and forcing a winner-take-all showdown. The third game was tied at 16-16 before Bullitt East scored eight straight points to secure a 25-17 victory.

    The change of fortune in the second game is not something new to Bullitt East head coach Michelle Gajdik.

  • Suggestions valid on plan for schools

    The crowd was pretty well behaved even though most came in angry. They didn’t like what the school system had proposed and they were all looking after the future happiness of their children.

    Despite the emotional evening, the Bullitt County Public School Board received a lot of quality comments from the two dozen speakers.

    In question is how to fill up a new elementary school in Mount Washington and how to eliminate the large student population at Freedom Elementary.

  • County tax rate will remain same

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Despite the tight financial restraints discussed by county officials the past year, Bullitt Fiscal Court opted Tuesday to keep its real property tax rates the same.

    By not accepting the compensating rate allowed, county officials turned down a possible $90,000 in additional revenue. And by rejecting the allowable 4 percent increase in revenue, the county officials will miss out on a possible $270,000 in funds.

    For a second straight year, Bullitt Fiscal Court members opted to not increase the real property rate.

  • Grave markers damaged by truck leaving roadway

    About a dozen grave markers at Hebron Cemetery were damaged as a truck driven by a juvenile headed to North Bullitt High School.

    On a foggy Tuesday morning, the juvenile driver left Hebron Lane, struck a utility pole and broke down a fence.

    The vehicle knocked over or broke over a dozen markers.

    The driver was not injured.
