  • Two arrested for robbery spree that started in Bullitt

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A robbery spree starting in Bullitt County on Thursday night ended several hours later in Jefferson County.

    Two individuals have been arrested and will face charges in both counties.

  • Belcher known as caring man, not politician

       To many people, the word politician is a nasty name.

       

    Maybe a four-letter word for some.

    Over the past week, there was the unfortunate need to talk to people to get their reactions to Larry Belcher.

    Belcher died in an auto accident Monday evening doing what he does best -- helping people.

    Most of you will recognize Larry as the state representative for the people of the 49th District.

    With only a few exceptions, it would be hard to find anyone who would say a bad word about the man.

  • School district steps up efforts to stop spread of whooping cough

    HEBRON ESTATES – The Bullitt County School District has stepped up its response against a recent whooping cough outbreak at Freedom Elementary School.

    As of today, nine Freedom students were confirmed to have the illness, also known as pertussis.

    Superintendent Keith Davis issued a letter to parents of FES students stating that any child exhibiting a runny nose, sneezing, low-grade fever and/or cough would be "temporarily excluded" from school.

  • BE back in action at LaRue

    HODGENVILLE - After a week to catch their breath and solidify some of the major changes that the offense has gone through over the past few weeks, the Bullitt East Chargers will be back in action on Friday against district rival LaRue County.

    This is an important game for the red and golf for a number of reasons, but the district standings are not among those things. Bullitt East has already wrapped up the number one seed for the Class 4-A play-offs while LaRue County is locked into the number four spot no matter what happens this week.

  • Lots of questions remain to be decided for the play-offs

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - With one game remaining in district play during the regular season, the play-off picture for November is starting to come into focus.

    In fact, after the games next Friday, the play-off picture will pretty much be decided.

    (All teams should have completed district games by next Friday, but because of the lost week in Jefferson County because of the wind storm, some district games might still need to be played.)
