  • Lady Chargers remain hot for Missouri show

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After losing four out of the first five games of the season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers needed a spark.

    That came in the team’s Schmid Funeral Home Classic as the red and gold rallied in the second half of the championship game to beat North Bullitt by ten points.

  • Lady Eagles hit a bump in the road on the road

     HEBRON ESTATES – The five-day holiday trip to Charleston, South Carolinas was good, but the results were less than satisfying for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    After winning eight straight games to open the season, North Bullitt had dropped the championship game of the Schmid Funeral Home Classic at Bullitt East to the host team.

  • This fire will not be put out very soon

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The media was present.

    The crowd was large.

    The anticipation was high.

    Some came from the show which is known as Bullitt Fiscal Court.

    Others came to see what was going to happen in the latest whirlwind saga known as Southeast Bullitt Fire Department.

    At the end of the morning, most probably left disappointed.

    With the exception of a minor flare up at the end of the meeting, calmer heads prevailed on this Tuesday morning.

  • Chargers & Eagles (barely) tabbed for Boys’ LIT bracket

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – For the first time ever, there will be two Bullitt County teams in next week’s Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament as both Bullitt East and North Bullitt secured bids late last week.

    Play in this year’s Boys’ LIT will start next Monday and all games will be played at Valley High School. Games will be played every night during the week except for Thursday with the championship game set for Saturday at 7:45 p.m.

  • East stumbles early in Lexington

     LEXINGTON – The holiday tournament season for the Bullitt East Chargers came to a somewhat frustrating end last Monday as they completed play in the Traditional Bank Holiday Classic with a 51-50 win over North Laurel.

    That win came after a pair of losses in early round play. The Chargers opened with a 69-56 loss to Lexington Christian and then fell to Louisville Central by a 56-39 count.

  • Sponsors rotating faster than players in tourneys

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – I’ve always been told that you can’t tell the players without a scorecard.

    Now, you can add to that, that you can’t tell the tournament sponsors without an internet connection.

    This turned out to be the oddest holiday tournament season in telling the sponsors as the names seemed to change almost daily.

  • Cougars still looking to find some consistency

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – If nothing else this season, the Bullitt Central Cougars have consistently been inconsistent.

    Sometimes, coach Joe Pat Lee’s team is inconsistent from game to game and other times it can even be from half to half or even quarter to quarter of a game.

    That was all certainly the case last week as the Cougars posted a 1-2 record in the Nelson County Classic. The event at Nelson County High School was a four-team round-robin event that used a point scoring system to decide an overall champion.

  • Christmas with Family Day Ministries

     Family Day Ministries hosted a special toy giveaway for youngsters in the community following its service on Dec. 21.

  • Scouts assistance

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Troop/Pack 8481 continues to share the holiday spirit.

    The Scouts hosted their fourth annual Toy and Clothing Giveaway at the First Baptist Church gymnasium.

    Each year the Scouts collect used items for families in the community. It turn, they itemize the donations and allow needy families to collect items for their families as Christmas gifts.

    This year the Scouts aided a total of 77 families, including 222 children and 153 adults, totals that greatly increased from their 2013 event.

  • Warnings done, tickets to come for speeders

     HEBRON ESTATES - Unless you want a little post-Christmas present in the Bullitt County District Court, you better slow down when driving through one northern municipality.

    Pioneer Village police chief D.J. Reynolds said his officers had written speeding citations to those driving through the city of Hebron Estates.

    Most of the offenders were students from North Bullitt who were racing through the subdivision to get to school.

    Garden Court and Scenic Trail were some of the targeted streets.
