  • Big dose of leadership best gift for county crew

      It is that time each year where we send a few gifts to individuals and agencies in Bullitt County.

    In the past, Santa Barr has tried to mix a little humor into his gifts. But, we’ll leave the humor to much more skilled writers than myself.

    Besides, there are serious times and that calls for serious discussions.

    First, the members of Bullitt Fiscal Court need to wish for, and receive, a big dose of leadership.

  • East gets impressive win over Waggener

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – For just over half a game this season, first-year Bullitt East head coach Jason Couch has had his full complement of players.

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Seconds into Friday night’s basketball game against Holy Cross, North Bullitt head coach David Marion felt it would be one of those nights.

    Yes, his Lady Eagles defeated Holy Cross 63-43.

    But, it was far from the performance Marion wants out of his team.

    “”We didn’t focus,” said Marion. “We weren’t intense.”

    No matter the combination, Marion was not pleased with his team’s performance.

  • BOAT receives naloxone donation to help save lives

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Bullitt Opioid Addiction Team (a local Non Profit 501c3) received a generous donation of EVZIO naloxone auto-injectors from Kaleo, the Richmond, Va.-based pharmaceutical company.

  • Central splits pair of games with Southern

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Any win is a good win.

    That is a phrase a lot of high school basketball coaches like to use, especially after three game losing skids.
