  • Christmas comes early for those who live in Shepherdsville

     There was a bit of apprehension among members of a committee working to beautify the city of Shepherdsville.

    What would the people think if the city spent some money to install Christmas decorations this year?

    We think they would be overjoyed.

    We think many would say that it is about time the city looked at ways to beautify the community, especially a downtown area which has suffered for years.

    We think, unfortunately, that most citizens and business owners won’t care.

  • County must resolve issue or it will continue to ‘dog’ officials

      We hope by the time gets into your hands that the county will have made a big decision on the future of its animal control program.

    The future of its program has been in a state of flux for months.

    Animal control officer Mark Williams had come under heat of the county judge. In fact, Melanie Roberts fired Williams but fiscal court members voted to reinstate him.

    But, he almost immediately went on medical leave, which is perfectly legal.

    The problem is that the 12-week period of his medical leave has passed.

  • Two teams looking for answers meet Friday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – The first five weeks of the high school football season have really raised more questions than they have answered for local football teams.

    That is most certainly the case for both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt as they get ready to collide in the 42nd renewal of The Game on Friday in the Cougars’ lair.

    Last year, both teams came into the first district game of the season with 4-1 records and both coaches pretty much knew what they had.

  • City hopes to bring Christmas cheer in new way

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

    Well, not quite this soon.

    The Shepherdsville City Council endorsed the purchase of $8,000 in new Christmas decorations in what the beautification committee hopes is just the beginning.

    Committee chairperson Lisa Carter was in Gatlinburg recently and ran across a dealer who handles holiday decorations.

    In her wish list of 37 items, Carter could receive a 20 percent discount, no taxes since it would be sold out of state and free delivery.

    “I was shocked, overjoyed and surprised,” she said.

    Lopez will be officially honored at the Kentucky Science Teachers Association conference, November 10-11, at the Lexington Convention Center.

    Applications for the award were due several months ago but, during a busy summer, Lopez actually forgot about it.

     FRANKFORT– District Court Judges Rebecca Ward and Jennifer Porter, who serve Bullitt County, participated in sessions on criminal evidence, forensics, implicit bias, legislation and more at the 2017 District Judges College in Covington from Aug. 22-25. 

    The Education Committee of the Kentucky District Judges Association and the Office of Judicial Branch Education at the Administrative Office of the Courts developed the college. 

  • Double murder, suicide Saturday night

     MOUNT WASHINGTON  -- Three people are dead as a result late Saturday night of a domestic dispute.

    Mount Washington police are investigating a  homicide where two individuals were shot to death.

    And, the alleged suspect, would later be found dead at his home in Shepherdsville.

    According to the Mount Washington Police, a call was received at around 10:37 p.m. on Saturday of shots being fired.

  • North musters one good half against Trojans

     RADCLIFF – Held to just 111 yards of total offense, the North Bullitt Eagles didn’t have enough firepower to stay with Class 6-A North Hardin on Friday, falling 37-0.

    This was the first time in 30 games under head coach Adam Billings that the Eagles have been shut-out.

    The North Bullitt defense did keep the young team in the game in the first half. North Hardin had to settle for a field goal late in the first quarter and then added a touchdown five minutes before halftime for a 10-0 halftime edge.

  • Tale of two halves results in BE losing 22-21 on 45-yard field goal

     SHELBYVILLE — There was no doubt that Bullitt East’s encounter with Shelby County was a tale of two halves.

    The visiting Chargers won the first half but Shelby County won after intermission and that resulted in a 22-21 victory.

    “Our kids didn’t come out to play,” Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander matter-of-factly said following the loss on Friday night.

  • Cougars lose OT thriller to North Oldham

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – A 27-yard field goal off the foot of North Oldham senior Adam Berry was the difference on Friday as the Mustangs stunned undefeated Bullitt Central 16-13.

    The win snapped an 18-game losing streak for North Oldham, a team that went 0-10 last season and had lost all four of its games this season by at least 11 points each. The win set off a wild celebration on the visitors’ side of the field at George Valentine Field.
