  • BC soccer caps huge week with historic title

     HIGHVIEW -- Forget any bomb threat at their school.

    The Bullitt Central Cougar soccer team declared that it was ‘the bomb’ on Thursday night.

    Dating back until at least 2000, this version of the Cougar boys’ soccer team did what no others had done -- advanced to the Sixth Region tournament.

    And it collected the 23rd District crown by winning the penalty kick shootout 4-3.

    Neither Bullitt Central nor Southern could get a kick past the respective goalies in regulation and two overtime periods.

  • NB girls stay in control in 23rd District

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles continue to make it look easy, winning a fourth straight 23rd District title on Wednesday, beating Bullitt Central 6-0.

    The 23rd District has had the same alignment for the past four seasons for soccer and four times North Bullitt has carried home the trophy. In fact, each time they have beat Bullitt Central for the title.

  • East girls still a goal short

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Lady Chargers keep beating on the door against the Mercy Jaguars, but the red and gold keep coming up a goal short.

    That was the case again on Thursday in the championship game of the Girls’ 24th District Tournament on the Lady Chargers’ home field. In the fourth straight meeting in the final between two of the area’s top teams, Mercy pulled out another tight win, holding on for the 3-2 victory.

  • BE boys advance to regional

     FERN CREEK – For the first time since realignment put Bullitt East in the 24th District at the start of the 2012 season, the Chargers advanced to the championship game and earned a spot in this week’s Sixth Region Tournament at Mercy High School.

    Bullitt East had earned the number two seed for the district tournament, but that didn’t seem very important when the team found itself down 2-0 at halftime in the opening round game against Jeffersontown.

  • Mount Washington Fall Festival

     It was a great weekend of weather for the various activities in Bullitt County.

    The Mount Washington Lions and Lioness Clubs sponsor the event.

    From a shootout with the cowboy posse to singing to good food to plenty of games, it was a good time for all.

  • Miraculous work done to clean up sewage site

     HUNTERS HOLLOW -- It’s great for television.

    But, in reality, there is nothing toxic about the sewage that has been dumped into the Brooks Run stream after the March 2014 collapse of the Hunters Hollow treatment plant.

    Knowing that perception often becomes reality, employees with the Bullitt County Sanitation District are working quickly to clean up the mess caused last spring.

    “It looks totally different,” district manager Jerry Kennedy told his two commissioners at their October meeting.
