  • Top-ranked Cov. Catholic too much for BE

     COVINGTON -- On a cold, breezy November night, the Bullitt East Chargers learned a valuable lesson.

    No matter the effort, it is hard when a team has been riddled with injuries to go onto an opponent’s field and come out the victor.

    And, when that opponent is the top ranked team in at least one poll, that task borders on the impossible.

    Covington Catholic displayed why many think the Colonels is the best team in Kentucky with a 56-14 victory.

    This came in the first round of the Class 5A post-season tournament.

  • Big pass plays lift Cougars past Colonels

     BARDSTOWN – Scoring three times in the third quarter, the Bullitt Central Cougars rallied from a 14-0 halftime hole on Friday and defeated Dixie Heights 18-14 in the first round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 football play-offs.

    The win marks the third time in the last four seasons that Bullitt Central has won its opening round contest in the post-season.

  • Pension protest may cancel class

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If a special session is called in Frankfort by the governor to discuss his pension plan, Bullitt County educators may have an opportunity to voice their opinions.

    And, if their presence is needed in Frankfort, superintendent Keith Davis will have the ability to cancel classes.

    With little discussion, the Bullitt County Public School Board took less than five minutes to give Davis the right to call an emergency and allow classes to be canceled.

  • Traffic signal at Bogard not in plan

     MOUNT WASHINGTON  -- Highway 44 wasn’t going to be widened.

    However, as alternative option to help make the heavily-traveled road a little safer was the announcement that several intersection improvements would be made.

    Turn lanes and traffic signals were installed at Armstrong Lane and Bells Mill Road.

    With the third intersection improvement planned for Bogard Lane, the expectations were that a traffic light would be part of the package.

  • ROADSHOW for the week beginning November 5, 2017

  • Spray park may be part of future at old BC pool begins

     PIONEER VILLAGE — A spray park may be open to youngsters in the Shepherdsville area next year.

    But county officials will wait until spring to make needed repairs to the Maryville pool.

    Both were pool-related discussion points for members of Bullitt Fiscal Court.

    Assistant parks director Ed Etherton had brought the issue of leaking pipes at the Maryville pool to members of Bullitt Fiscal Court at an earlier meeting.

    American Leak Detection had worked on the pool previously and gave Etherton a quote to make the repairs.

  • Amy’s Army to hold fund-raiser to assist with major medical expenses

    MOUNT WASHINGTON—It never hurts to get a second opinion. In fact, sometimes a second opinion can save a life.

    Amy Baker, 34, learned that the hard way.

    Three years ago, Baker had an MRI done from her tailbone to her brain to check on rods in her spine. During the scan, something  was found. A biopsy in 2015 proved the spots to be benign so her doctor just had her return every six months for ultrasounds to ensure everything was okay.

    By listening to her gut, she discovered it wasn’t.

  • Lebanon Jct. to make slight changes to license fees

    LEBANON JUNCTION  -- There is no intent to gouge business owners.

    However, mayor Larry Dangerfield said it is important that Lebanon Junction officials always be on the lookout to seize opportunities to gain a little revenue.

    After paying a business license fee that has not been raised forever, Dangerfield told council members that it might be time for a change.

    And, the council unanimously increased the annual business license fee.

    The $60 fee will now be $100 per year to operate a business in the city of Lebanon Junction.
