    He was not moved to make a change on his tie-breaking vote to turn the Shepherdsville Community Center over to the public works department.

    With the failure to change his vote despite having a room from of scouts, members of Scout Troop 868, as well as a dance group, will be looking for a new home this May.

  • Arla looking to expand medical care services

     HILLVIEW - Dr. Mohana Arla reminded the Hillview City Council of his efforts to bring a hospital to Bullitt County since he arrived in 1996.

    However, the promise of such a facility, which became KentuckyOne Health Jewish Medical Center South, did not live up to the local dreams of a full hospital facility.

    As a result, Arla, along with his son, Dr. Praveen Arla, have decided upon a new pathway to bring proper medical care to local residents… with a little help from the council.

  • East baseball stays hot; wins three of four in full week

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Nobody expected the Bullitt East Chargers’ baseball team to go undefeated this season and that includes head coach Jeff Bowles.

    Still, after six straight wins to open the season, you do start to dream of winning every game. But that is just not the way it normally works in baseball.

    The dream ended on Friday when the Chargers suffered a 9-8 defeat at the hands of visiting Ballard. The loss came a day after the red and gold had beaten DeSales by the same 9-8 score.

     HIGHVIEW – It was once again a one-two finish for Bullitt County teams over the weekend at the Region Four Archery Tournament at Moore High School, but this time it was Bullitt Central hoisting the big trophy and Bullitt East the runner-up medals, reversing last year’s finish.

    The competition belonged to the Cougars all along as coach Dustin Metcalf’s team shot to a final score of 3,416 to win by an impressive 82 points over Bullitt East, which finished at 3,334 (3,600 is a perfect score).

  • North learning as wins keep coming

     HEBRON ESTATES – The ups and downs of a high school baseball coach.

    Over the course of a 36-game schedule, there can be plenty of highs and just as many lows — especially when dealing with a lot of kids without varsity experience.

    Just ask North Bullitt Eagle skipper Brian Wise. Sometimes it is enough to pull your hair out.

    It was a week where the Eagles played it tight until the end against a pair of perennial Sixth Region contenders.

  • Central goes 2-3 in a long week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was an uneven week of baseball for the Bullitt Central Cougars as coach G.J. Moore’s team won the first two and then dropped the final three including two games in a ‘triangle’ event at Corbin High School on Saturday.

    That action left Bullitt Central with a 3-4 record after the first two weeks of the regular season. On Monday, the Cougars were rained out of game against a visiting team from Chicago, Lake Zurich, that is spending their spring break in the Louisville area playing different teams.
