  • Get questions on fire district done, then move on

      The time has come to either extinguish the fire or to bring on the heat.

    For years, people have questioned the arrangement at Southeast Bullitt Fire and Rescue and its corporation. And, for years, the district continues to field  from the community.

    Now, questions railed by commissioner Dan Thibideaux made it to Bullitt Fiscal Court and then on the county’s You Tube account.

    The allegations, which have all been refuted by the district’s attorney, seem very serious.

  • Red beats Gold for best in city as well as county

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt East head football coach Darrell Vincent had the opportunity to stay in the end zone as a neutral observer.

    But what he got to see Saturday in the A Division championship game for the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League was the future of Bullitt East.

    In the first year of the newly-revamped A Division, it would be East Charger Red versus East Charger Gold.

    To make the Bullitt East fans feel even more at home, the goalpost padding was brought down from Mount Washington.

  • Maryville completes a perfect season with a crown

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - When your defense gives up 12 points in a season and your offense scores over 400, you would expect to be in the championship game.

    The Maryville Patriots capped off an unbeaten season with a 26-6 victory in the ‘B’ Division of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League.

    The Patriots turned back the third-seed Mount Washington Colts.

    The first quarter saw both defenses in control. It wasn’t until 24 seconds remained in the first quarter that the Patriots moved the scoreboard.

  • Early offense propels Old Mill past Jaguars for crown

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Before the season started, Brandon Egan didn’t know what type of football team he had.

    But, after a couple of pre-season practices, Egan quickly knew that his Old Mill Bengals would be a very good team.

    That analysis was a good one as the Bengals went undefeated.

    In the championship game of the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League, the Bengals defeated the Lebanon Junction Jaguars for the Pee Wee title.

    “It’s been a great season,” said Egan.

  • Maryville caps perfect run with a win over the Saints

    On the opening kickoff, Maryville went for the on-side kick and Garrett Coy recovered at the Patriot 33.

  • Roadwork affecting local businesses

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Even though it’s paving the way for the future, work on Interstate 65 has not been helping Bullitt County tourism lately.

    Construction in the county begins around Lebanon Junction and extends to the Gene Snyder Freeway. 

    Much of it is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Crews have reduced the road to two lanes.

    This was one of the concerns discussed at a recent meeting of the Shepherdsville-Bullitt County Tourist & Convention Commission.

  • Opportunities open up for college with new facilities

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - The completion of college and career facilities to two high schools has provided more opportunities for students in Bullitt and surrounding counties.

    With Bullitt East and North Bullitt centers now completed, Donna Miller, director of the Bullitt County campus of Jefferson Community and Technical College, said there is even more opportunities for post-secondary education.

    The college has an arrangement with the Bullitt County Public School System to use classroom space in the evening hours at the two facilities.

    The Salt River chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was started about 2 years ago, said Ruth Chowning, vice regent of the chapter.

    “Our major goal and mission is to honor all veterans who have made this county what it is today,” she said.

    The group, which includes about 40 members, recently worked on their first project with Interlink Counseling Services, which helps guide homeless veterans.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Mike Goldsmith, a former member of the United States Army’s 184th Ordnance Company Special C4 unit based in Germany, can be considered a hero like all other veterans.

    Now Goldsmith can also be referred to as a Hall of Famer, and it was because of his unit he received such a title.

    Goldsmith was selected as a member of the 2014 White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame.

    Established in 1921, White Castle is famous for its Sliders, smaller square burgers made with 100 percent real beef.

  • Taking look back at elections; next cycle will come quickly

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Any illusions that President Barack Obama was going to be on the ballot in the November 2014 general election were wrong.

    In fact, the number of straight ticket voters grew on Tuesday when compared to mid-term elections four years ago.

    That did not bode well for local candidates who might have had a “D” behind their name.

    Of the 24,619 who cast ballots in Bullitt County, 8,764 darkened the straight-ticket box on the ballot.
