  • Newspapers are still important if you want to be informed person

     One might believe that as we observe National Newspaper Week, there might be a bit of despair.

    Yes, the newspaper business has changed. But our need to know might be greater than ever.

    In this crazy, hectic world, there is more happening than ever.

    There's more internal disagreements. There's more frustration with our governmental agencies.

    There is never a shortage of news. And that’s just the stuff you might see on the nightly news.

    Bullitt County has so much more going on and all of it is not bad.

  • Power of press is reporting the news consumers need

     WASHINGTON -- The power of the press rests in the ability of journalists to hold government accountable, to mobilize public opinion on matters that are important to individuals, communities or the nation, and to provide necessary information of value.

    Notice in those words not a mention of celebrity content, mobile devices nor‚ 'aspirational‚' reportage that feels good without doing any good.

  • Lady Eagles get second net victory over Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Volleyball is really the only remaining sport where the three Bullitt County teams take the court against each other, each year, on a home-and-home basis.

    That is good for fans, but no longer means that the games are played for anything more than pride.

    That was the case on Tuesday of last week when North Bullitt traveled to Bullitt Central for the second meeting. In fact, it is probably the second of three meetings this fall between the 23rd District rivals.

  • BC’s Phillips has her best CC finish

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the high school cross-country season entering the final month, Bullitt Central senior Kelsey Phillips had an impressive run on Saturday, running through wet conditions at Tom Sawyer State Park in eastern Jefferson County to take first place in the Open Girls Race of the Greater Louisville Classic.

  • Indian attack on Johnson’s children in Bullitt

    The earlier Johnson family came into Kentucky in the late 1780’s from Maryland.  Bullitt County did not become a County until 1796.

    The Ephraim Johnson family settled in the area known as the small stream called Cane Run, three miles north of what is now known as Lebanon Junction, Kentucky.

    There was a station located down on the lower creek at the place known as Holsclaw.

  • East boys ready to tee it up Tuesday at state golf

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – After playing a practice round on Monday, the Bullitt East Chargers will open play on Tuesday in the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Tournament.

    Bullitt East will be competing at the Bowling Green Country Club which has a par-72 score over 6,795 yards.

  • Rain gets the best of all but E-town golfers

    CEDAR GROVE – Elizabethtown was the big winner on Tuesday at the Girls’ Third Region Golf Tournament at Heritage Hill Golf Course, but not until Mother Nature got in a few swings of her own.

    Playing in steady rain all day, the top female high school golfers in the area had a long day of slow play despite being able to ‘lift, clean and place’ any shots in the fairways under the brutal conditions.

  • Eagles take care of OC in rain

     BUCKNER -- Despite coming off an exciting victory the previous week against a county and despite playing a team which had not won a game this season, first-year North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings was not worried about a letdown.

    Coaching a team of players hungry for success, Billings knew from the week of practice that his Eagles were ready.

    What concerned the coach a little was the weather. For a second straight week, rain and wind was a constant for the entire contest against Oldham County.
