  • Drug Court has saved lives of many participants

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- “I would be dead.”

    Richard Jesse is sure that if his life continued on the path it was taking, he would have been dead by now.

    The Jefferson County native had been in and out of jail since the age of 17. Alcohol and drugs had consumed his life.

    It wasn’t as if Jesse hadn’t tried to seek help. He’d been to various treatment facilities.

    “I knew I needed help,” said Jesse.

  • Ordinance, fees fall into place for animal office

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Animal control officials received some forward movement in their ordinance governing the operations at the shelter.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court unanimously agreed to both the list of fees to be charged and the ordinance governing the operation of the facility.

    There was little discussion on either matter.

    Dogs can be adopted from the shelter at a cost of $110. This includes spay or neuter, shots and a microchip.

    The court tabled a proposal to add up to 16 security cameras in the animal control shelter.

  • Arts council could fold due to lack of help

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The final curtain may soon fall on the Bullitt County Arts Council.

    Donna Burke, president of the council and a member of the Shepherdsville City Council, said that there is consideration to disband the organization.

    The dwindling number of people interested in keeping the group going is a major factor, said Burke.

    A meeting will be held on Thursday, June 1, at 6:30 p.m. at Dance with Steve and Donna, located on Highway 44 West in Shepherdsville.

  • Graduation ceremonies are all special

     Like a wedding, there can be no such thing as a bad graduation.

    As my alma mater was having an all-class reunion last Saturday, the three Bullitt County high schools were wishing the best to nearly 1,000 graduates.

    There are always special moments. That is what graduations are for.

    Superintendent Keith Davis had the chance to present his son, William, with his diploma from Bullitt East.

    School board vice chairman Darrell Colemen did the same for his niece, Annie Argenbright of Bullitt Central.

  • Time to put change in the Crusade boot

     It is hard to believe that another year has passed but you can tell by the firefighters standing on intersections holding their boots that it is indeed Crusade for Children time.

    That first weekend in June is the time in which Kentuckiana pours out its heart for the special needs children of this area.

    Every penny collected goes to helping the children. There is no administrative fees taken out.

    And, the money raised by Bullitt County fire departments will be returned to this community.

  • CASA gets big check

     Tony Mouser was serving on a grand jury in Florida.

    The case involved a 34-year-old man doing improper things to a 10-year-old girl.

    Thanks to the work of a CASA volunteer, the man was ultimately proven guilty.

    That respect for the work of people like CASA workers to keep children safe led him to make a major personal contribution.

    Mouser recently presented the Bullitt County CASA program with a check for $25,000.

  • BC finishes a tough season with a strong final contest

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – While the outcome was the same, it was a totally different Bullitt Central softball team that played in the opener of the 23rd District tournament.

    After suffering a 17-0 loss to North Bullitt, the Lady Cougars fell 6-4 on Tuesday but it was an encouraging way to end the season.

    Still, it was the Lady Eagles who would advance to the championship game on Friday. North Bullitt would repeat as the district champ with a huge 10-3 victory over Southern.

    In the opener, North Bullitt would score two runs in the second inning.

  • Moore knocks out BC in ‘frustrating’ contest

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Calling it the most frustrating game in his coaching career, Bullitt Central skipper G.J. Moore was left wondering what would have been.

    His Cougars had fought back from a 2-0 deficit only to see the Moore Mustangs win the opener of the District 23 baseball tournament 4-3.

    The second-seeded Mustangs were the home team on Bullitt Central’s field and needed that final at-bat to secure the victory.

    Keagan Gentry opened the Mustang seventh with a single to left field. Patrick Wells laid down a sacrifice bunt.

  • Regional tourney action starts on Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It has happened in both boys’ and girls’ basketball in the past five years, but for the first time in softball, two Bullitt County teams will meet in the opening round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

    That clash will take place on Monday when Bullitt East, coming off its 13-inning marathon 2-0 loss to Mercy, travels across Bells Mill Road to take on North Bullitt at 11 a.m. The Lady Eagles get to be the host school after winning the 23rd District title with a 10-3 victory over Southern.

  • Another classic, but Mercy beats BE in 13 innings

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – We should have expected no less.

    It was another classic on Friday night as it took 13 innings before the Mercy Jaguars pushed across a pair of runs to beat Bullitt East in the championship game of the 24th District Softball Tournament.

    The 2-0 score was the same as last years district final when the Lady Chargers lost to Fern Creek.
