     ROADSHOW for the week beginning August 30, 2015


    Inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances may occur, so the information below is strictly of an advisory nature and is subject to change with no notice.


  • East’s early-season woes continue in loss to Titans

     MOUNT WASHINGTON –The rocky start to the 2015 football season for the Bullitt East Chargers got a lot bumpier on Friday as the red and gold fell behind 28-0 in the first quarter before losing to visiting Martha Layne Collins on Friday 55-14.

    The 55 points is the most the Chargers have allowed in a loss (BE beat Nelson County 67-59 two years ago) since  Aug. 27, 2010 in a 63-12 loss to Holy Cross. It was the first time that the Chargers have had a running clock against them since losing to Collins 52-7 midway through the 2010 season.

  • North doubles victory total in rout of Trojans from last year in two games

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Football games are not won or lost on Friday nights.

    They are won or lost during the week in practice.

    North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings felt pretty good after Wednesday’s practice.

    “It was a great practice,” said the first-year Eagle head coach. “The players are hungry.”

    After going on the road to defeat Woodford County, North Bullitt did something Billings, or many of his players, may not have dreamed possible -- defeated Southern to go 2-0 on the season.

  • Cougars score twice late to beat Fairdale

     SHEPHERDSVILLE –After falling behind 20-13 with less than four minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Bullitt Central offense scored twice over the next eight minutes and then let the defense do the rest on Friday as the Cougars moved to 2-0 with a 26-20 win at home over Fairdale.

    This was the second time this season the Cougars have led by a single score down the stretch and both times the defense has stepped up and made the plays to secure a win.

  • REKINDLED: Trial will determine fate of SE Bullitt contract

     CLERMONT -- Unless two entities can reach an accord on their mediated agreement, it appears a court trial will be the next stop for those involved with the Southeast Bullitt Fire Department.

    After a dispute and cancellation of a contract between the Southeast Bullitt Fire Protection District and the Southeast Fire and Rescue Corp., there seemed to be a mediated agreement in March 2015.

    However, by actions taken in a hearing last Wednesday, a trial has now been set for Oct. 27 in Bullitt Circuit Court.

  • Community asked to assess their views on county’s health in future

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- When you think of having a “healthy” community, what comes to mind?

    Is it safety? Or maybe it could be quality of life?

    Does physical and mental well-being describe your definition of health?

    Maybe access, happiness or spiritual health fits that definition?

    Whatever your definition, it will play an important role in the five-year community assessment currently underway through the Bullitt County Health Department.
