  • Cougars, Raiders ready to rock Shepherdsville Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The last time Bullitt Central and Iroquois met on the football field, the Cougars rolled to a 63-24 victory during the 2010 season. The year before, the maroon and gray rolled to a 61-0 win.

    When the two teams collide on Friday in the second round of the Class 5-A, Region 2 play-offs, the only sure thing is that the score will not be as lopsided.

  • 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.
