  • Southeast Bullitt Fire Department: Lawsuit filed to stop termination of contract

     CLERMONT - Before bids could be received from fire agencies interested in serving the Southeast Bullitt Fire territory, a lawsuit has been filed asking to halt the proceedings.

    And a counter-claim has been filed by the board of trustees.

    The Southeast Bullitt Fire and Rescue Department Inc. filed the lawsuit Thursday in Bullitt Circuit Court.

  • Tribunal returns teacher to classroom

     BROOKS - Although an independent tribunal of individuals outside Bullitt County felt that a Brooks Elementary educator had engaged in conduct unbecoming of a teacher, an administrator, teacher and lay person did not believe Ashley Silas should be fired.

    After listening to testimony, including a video of Silas dragging a student from the classroom to the office, the tribunal overturned the teacher’s termination.

    The penalty imposed by the tribunal was suspension without pay from Oct. 29-Dec. 19.

  • Lady Eagles have just three score, but manage big win

       LOUISVILLE – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles might be the only team in the area that can say that they have an undefeated record playing Assumption High School.

    The Lady Eagles picked up a second win in as many seasons on Saturday as they defeated one of the area’s top programs 55-30 in the first game of the day at the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic at Mercy High School. The event is a one-day ‘showcase’ with some of the top teams in the area taking part.

  • Lady Chargers win two games in impressive style

     LOUISVILLE – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers have played a lot of games in the Raatz Fence/O’Shea’s Basketball Classic over the years, but just one game each season.

    This year, the Lady Chargers got the honor of playing a pair of games in the two-day ‘showcase’ event at Mercy High School and the red and gold made the most of the opportunity, picking up a pair of impressive wins in an 18-hour time frame.

  • Audit report gives each side reason to claim win

     Can a report from a state auditor serve the purpose of making both sides happy?

    We guess so.

    Let’s take, for example, the recent release of Adam Edelen’s audit of the Southeast Bullitt Fire Board.

    Going into the request for the examination, the concern was mismanagement of tax dollars.

    Beyond that, local residents were looking for some tidbit of illegal activity. Theft of tax dollars would be an added bonus. Recommendation for jail time for criminal misdeeds would be icing on the cake.

  • Catch of the day: Fryer fire at Long John Silver's

      Around 10 o'clock this morning, Shepherdsville Fire Department personnel responded to the Long John Silvers restaurant on Joe B. Hall Avenue.

    Upon arrival, firefighters saw that a fryer had apparently caught fire and the flames were taken up the exhaust system, exactly how the system is to work.

    Fire Chief Layne Troutman reported that there were no injuries. The major damage was from smoke which filled the building.

    There was no timetable on when the restaurant would reopen.

  • Suit filed over fire department contract

     CLERMONT -- The Southeast Bullitt fire board voted on Jan. 2 to terminate the existing contract for fire protection.

  • Lady Chargers come up just short against powerful Mercy

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In what could be the first of four meetings between the two girls’ state basketball powers, Mercy jumped on top early and then held off a late Bullitt East rally to record a 64-53 victory on Tuesday.

         The win came in the regular season game that will be used to seed the upcoming 24th District Tournament that Mercy will be hosting in late February. A year ago, Bullitt East won the regular season meeting at Mercy, but then lost to the Jaguars in the championship game of the 24th District Tournament.
