  • One pool open this weekend; still hope BC facility could be open later

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The death of the swimming season at the pool outside Bullitt Central High School may have been a bit premature.

  • Redistricting will not just go away

     When is a public hearing not a public hearing?

    When the decision was made prior to listening to the public.

    However, it all works out pretty well when the decision reached is what the public wanted to begin with.

    OK, do I know that the Bullitt County Public School Board was against the proposal to redistrict due to overcrowding issues?

  • North starts fast, ends early over Central
