  • Chargers just crush Manual

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Coming out of the disappointment of a quarter-final loss in the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament five days earlier, the Bullitt East Chargers started a new winning streak in a rare Wednesday game as they crushed visiting Manual 79-46.

    It has been a tough season for the Crimsons as the normally powerful program had just three wins heading to Mount Washington. Bullitt East made sure they didn’t get the fourth victory as the red and gold pulled away from an 18-14 lead after one quarter with a 23-3 advantage in the second frame.

  • BC’s struggles get worse on Tuesday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Far from a powerhouse offensive team this winter, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars may have hit rock bottom on Tuesday as they were beaten by visiting Bardstown 51-20.

    The game was the fourth in five days for the maroon and gray and that could well have had something to do with the struggles on offense. The Lady Cougars made just six shots the entire night in 49 attempts (12.2 percent). Bullitt Central was actually a little better outside the arc than inside it as they made three of 15 from long range.

  • Defense turns up heat to fuel pair of victories

     HEBRON ESTATES — Hailey Free’s playing career is far from over.

    However, the junior point guard got an early start in her coaching career on Tuesday.

    Entering the locker room at halftime with a narrow two-point lead over Assumption, Free suggested to head coach David Marion that the Lady Eagles open up the third quarter with its half-court trapping defense.

    “It wasn’t my call,” said Marion.

  • Nightmare final minute forces NB overtime loss

     OKOLONA – Can a high school basketball team play both great and poorly in the same game?

    The North Bullitt Eagles pretty much proved that you can do all that and more as they rallied from a large deficit to take a big lead and then squandered it all in the final 50 seconds to force overtime before finally losing.

    Confused? So was North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock after his team dropped a 78-75 decision to Southern in a key game within the 23rd District.

  • East rallies...twice...to beat Mercy 70-66

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – When you have been on the varsity team for six seasons, are the state’s seventh leading scorer and the favorite to be named Miss Basketball, the coach doesn’t need to remind you to pick up your game in the fourth quarter of a tight contest.

    Bullitt East senior Lindsey Duvall knew what her team needed and she responded with 14 of her game-high 26 points in the final three minutes on Tuesday to help lift the Lady Chargers to a 70-66 victory over arch-rival Mercy in a battle of two of the state’s top-20 teams.

  • Fulton contract supplier guilty of jail construction kickbacks

     PADUCAH –  A Fulton County, Kentucky, business owner and contract supplier pled guilty today in United States District Court before Senior Judge Thomas B. Russell for his role in a conspiracy to defraud Fulton County citizens, through kickbacks and concealment of costs associated with work performed on the 2015 Fulton County Detention Center expansion, announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.

  • Director to appeal suspension

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  -- The man on the hot seat of recent complaints over his actions as director of Bullitt County Animal Control did not speak on Tuesday.

    But, he will have an opportunity to address at least the actions — which resulted in a recent four-day suspension — during an appeal hearing on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 9:30 a.m.

    Mark Williams sat through another round of complaints during Tuesday’s fiscal court meeting. He did not argue the concerns and, under county employee policies, Williams cannot talk with the media.

  • ‘Small’ redistricting changes possible for two areas of school district

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — It’s not the large scale changes proposed last spring.

    But, it would solve a few problems at several schools.

    The Bullitt County Public School Board mentioned the dreaded “redistricting” word at its work session on Jan. 9.

    The consensus of the school board members was for superintendent Keith Davis to draw up a proposal for consideration later this year.

  • Shepherdsville meetings back to Monday?

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — If you are a regular attendee of the Shepherdsville City Council, you might have to realign your schedules.

    For nearly two years, the Shepherdsville City Council has met on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month.

    Starting soon, that meeting night may revert back to its original home on Mondays.

    A first reading was heard to return to the second and fourth Mondays of each month.

    The meeting time of 6:30 p.m. would remain, as would the meeting place — Shepherdsville Government Center.

  • Family, friends show their loves as Daugherty retires from YMCA

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was over 30 years ago when a small group of individuals had a dream of starting a YMCA branch in Bullitt County.

    Once all the parts came together, the branch was formed.

    Rose Haley remembers the next step was to find someone to lead an agency with no facilities, a small office and a budget of $25,000.

    They would find June Crenshaw, who was working in Lexington after graduating from Eastern Kentucky University.

    “We took a chance on her,” said Haley. “And she took a chance on us.”
