  • A quick look at the workings of the court system

     At the local level, there are three types of court:  Circuit, District and Family.  

    Circuit Court is the court of general jurisdiction and can hear all types of cases unless the General Assembly has given exclusive jurisdiction of a particular case to another designated court.  

    The types of cases normally heard in Circuit Court are as follows:  civil matters involving more than $5,000 capital; offenses such as felonies, divorces, adoptions, termination of parental rights, real property title disputes and contested probates. 

  • No time for a let down by Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After three ‘big’ games in three weeks, two of them decided in overtime, the Bullitt Central Cougars will need to get up for another ‘big’ game this week when the team travels to Shelbyville for a Class 5-A, District 4 showdown with Shelby County.

    Bullitt Central and Shelby County are both undefeated in district play with the Cougars at 2-0 and the Rockets at 1-0 after beating North Bullitt 34-20 last Friday.

    For the first time since 1979, the Cougars can win a district title with a victory on Friday.

  • Volleyball post-season gets started on Monday locally

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There is still an intra-county match on Thursday of this week when Bullitt East heads to North Bullitt for the final match of the regular season, but all three area teams are already looking ahead to district play which begins on Monday.

    In fact, the post-season will only last two days despite both the 23rd and 24th Districts having five teams. There will be three matches in both tournaments on Monday with championship action slated for Tuesday night.

  • Candidate forum set for this Thursday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - On Thursday night, various candidates will take center stage at the new Bullitt Central High School cafeteria.

    County and state candidates will have an opportunity to speak during the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce Meet the Candidates Night.

    Light refreshments will be available, as well as a time to meet the candidates, starting at 5:30 p.m.

    At 6 p.m., the candidates will be given an opportunity to speak.

  • Forget when and where, flood map issue must be addressed

     Probably the biggest battle Bullitt County will face in the next decade was discussed for the first time last Wednesday.

    The altering of the flood elevation maps by the Federal Emergency Management Agency could be catastrophic to the future of Shepherdsville, in specific, and Bullitt County, in general.

    Engineering work has been going on for the past 20 years on making changes to flood maps throughout the country.

    It just so happens that due to a rash of major natural disasters, FEMA is out of money.

  • Still a lot on the line in county showdown

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There is no Bullitt Cup on the line Friday in the annual renewal of The Clash, but Bullitt East and North Bullitt still have a lot to play for in the 35th meeting between the two programs on the gridiron.

    As has been the case for the past decade, this will be a district game for both teams in Class 5-A. North Bullitt stands at 0-2 in the district heading into the final district game for the green and gold while Bullitt East is 0-1 in the district following last week’s overtime loss to Bullitt Central.

  • Taylor plays second day at state tourney; future bright for BE

     BOWLING GREEN – Bullitt East sophomore Zach Taylor advanced to play on Day Two of the Boys’ Kentucky State Golf Tournament on Saturday, finishing up with one of the best finishes ever for a local player.

    Taylor played through the rain on Friday, finishing before play was suspended later in the afternoon with some players barely halfway through the round. After play resumed on Saturday morning, Taylor’s 78 was good enough to get him into the second round as one of the top-20 scores for players not on one of the top dozen teams.

  • Lady Eagles cruise to win; BC boys advance; BE falls

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Finishing play before the storms hit on Monday night, the North Bullitt girls and the Bullitt Central boys both started post-season play in soccer with wins.

    The result was not so good for the Bullitt East boys’ soccer team as their season came to an end with a 5-0 loss to Fern Creek at home.

    The top two teams in each of this week’s district tournaments will advance to Sixth Region play starting on Monday.
