    Yes, Circuit Judge Rodney Burress’ ruling on the legal question in Shepherdsville probably caught a few people by surprise.

  • Thank goodness for the ‘mercy’ rule in BE rout

        BARDSTOWN -- The only group that may have been unhappy with Bullitt East’s 69-0 victory over the Nelson County Cardinals was the school’s cheerleading team.

        On the field, head coach Mark Sander has been getting the feeling that his young squad and the new coaching staff are starting to put it all together.
