  • Many big issues for legislators to tackle in ‘16

     I hope you and your family enjoyed a wonderful Christmas season and a happy New Year. 

    A new year also means a new legislative session of the Kentucky General Assembly. Tuesday, January 5, marked the beginning of a 60-day session that will run through mid-April. In this session, we hope to address the numerous important issues facing our state, keeping the common theme of creating Kentucky jobs and strengthening Kentucky families.

  • Lady Cougars end tough week with lopsided win

     OKOLONA – At the end of a long week for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars, there was a light at the end of the tunnel as the maroon and gray had some fun on Friday in defeating Moore 61-22.

    The week had started with a loss at Taylor County, a team that the Lady Cougars had beaten earlier in the season.

    Then, the team learned over the next few days that senior Lexi Graham would have very limited availability for the rest of the season because of her surgically-repaired knee. 

  • Lady Eagles suffer fourth loss, three on Saturdays

     FAIRDALE -- They’ve responded before after a bad outing.

    And North Bullitt head coach David Marion expects his Lady Eagles will respond once again.

    But that response will come after a pretty ugly outing on Saturday in the New Year Exposure Classic at Fairdale High School.

    What the Lady Eagles exposed, Marion hopes to not see in the future.

    From the opening tip to the ending horn, North Bullitt gave a flat performance in a 62-38 loss to Glasgow.

  • BE girls stay hot, win two more

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers picked up consecutive wins four and five over the weekend and the team has not won eight of its last nine contests with the only loss being a five point setback to Male, the state’s third ranked team.

    On Friday, coach Chris Stallings’ team got 23 points and 11 rebounds from junior Raegan Williams as they beat visiting Fern Creek 58-43 in a game between 24th District rivals.

  • Bullitt Central invites everyone to town forum meetings starting Thursday

     An opportunity for parents/guardians to engage with the Bullitt County community begins Thursday, Jan. 14, at 6 p.m. with the first Bullitt Central High School Town Hall meeting in the auditorium.

  • Options for 480?: Developer warns interchange may take time

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Jesse Flynn said he is not opposed to the city of Shepherdsville working to get an interchange on Interstate 65 just south of the current Cedar Grove Road exit.

    However, with his experience in working with highway projects, Flynn warned against any expectations that the work would be done quickly.

  • Programs help families get beyond abuse issues

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Hillview resident Gwinn Taylor was at rock bottom.

    “I had lost my kids to CPS,” she said. “I pled guilty to neglect charges, which I had earned. I was an IV heroin user. I was on the street selling my body. I needed help.”

    After arriving at the county clerk’s office “high as a kite,” she was put in front of Circuit Judge Elise Spainhour.

    Spainhour introduced Taylor to the Families Moving Beyond Abuse (FMBA) program.

  • OUR HOUSE: Bullitt East brings all students into unique program

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- For the past 18 years, kids have dreamed about going to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They grew up wondering how butterbeer tastes, what it’d be like to travel through fireplaces and whether they’d be in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin houses. 

    For the past three years, Bullitt East High has brought the magic of the Houses program to the school.

  • Exciting time as legislative session gets underway

     Like the first day back to school, the first week of any new legislative session brings mixed emotions -- anticipation and excitement, apprehension and hope. 

    To me, it’s also an exceptionally humbling time as I consider the great responsibility you have vested in me as your representative for the 49th District.

    I serve in Frankfort to be an active, accessible voice for the people of Bullitt County and this 2016 session of the Kentucky General Assembly will be no exception.

  • Bombs Away! Eagles get the best of PRP

     LOUISVILLE -- In the small confines of the Whitefield Academy gym, it wasn’t difficult to hear the displeasure of veteran Pleasure Ridge Park coach Dale Mabry.

    But what may have been less apparent was the smile on the face of North Bullitt’s Korey Craddock on Saturday.

    In the Whitefield Down Syndrome Classic, the Eagles shot their way to a 75-66 victory over perennial Sixth Region powers PRP.

    But the game was not that close.
