  • Mount Washington has own electrical inspector

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— When the city of Mount Washington gets tired of waiting, it takes matters into its own hands.

    Recently, the city council voted to approve the addition of an electrical inspector.

    “We were in situations a lot of times where we were having to wait for inspections,” mayor Barry Armstrong said.

    While the city previously had its own inspector for the smaller stuff, the county was the only option they had to rely to on.

  • North looking to regain top spot in 23rd District

    HEBRON ESTATES – After a somewhat disappointing 9-23 record a year ago and a runner-up finish in the 23rd District after five straight championships, North Bullitt volleyball coach Keith Higgs is working on the philosophy this season that less is more.

    After keeping 32 players in the program a year ago, the second-year head coach this year opted to keep just 24 players. At this point, the varsity roster has just nine names, but some junior-varsity players could move up if needed.

  • A better start would greatly benefit BE in 2017

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – A year ago, the Bullitt East Chargers gave up 196 points in losing the first four games of the regular season.

    Unfortunately, that pretty much set the tone for the season, the first under head coach Mark Sander. The Chargers did go on to post three victories (a fourth win later had to be forfeited) and they did reach the play-offs, but lost the opening round game 32-13 to Madison Central.

    That left the program with a final 3-8 record.

  • Talent present at BC, but Kuehn seeking depth

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With winning records each of the past three seasons, two Bullitt Cup titles in the same span as well as two post-season wins, the Bullitt Central football program has succeeded recently despite having three different head coaches over that span.

    Now, the program is stable at the top with the return of head coach Matt Kuehn for a second season. The coach also feels that there is enough talent to add to the recent success story – barely.

  • Greenbrier group working to get improvements to its portion of road

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— Residents have rallied together to fix a failing road in Mount Washington.

    Greenbrier Road is an interesting one. If a driver turns onto it from Highway 44 and continue straight, it becomes Wales Run Road about a mile down. That straight strip is considered a state road.
