  • Superintendent praises teachers for dedication, displeased with way pension bill approved

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Superintendent Dr. Keith Davis said he has reasons every day to be proud of his teachers and support staff in Bullitt County.

    On Friday, there was yet another opportunity to see how professional the employees are with the Bullitt County Public School System.

    The lengthy discussion on pension programs for educators, as well as government employees, took a very ugly turn late Thursday evening.

  • The Maraman Family

     The Maraman business’s date back to the Maraman Brothers Company, serving Louisville and Shepherdsville and the firm of George W.

  • Simpson pitches East past J-town

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Getting a complete game, three-hitter from junior Garrett Simpson, the Bullitt East Chargers started 24th District play on Tuesday with a 4-2 victory over Jeffersontown.

    With limited ‘game’ experience this spring because of the bad weather, Bullitt East head coach Jeff Bowles was not looking for Simpson to pitch a complete game, but the junior kept his pitch count low so the need never developed for a change.

  • North gets early jump on districts

     HIGHVIEW — Forget about the non-district games.

    The road to the Sixth Region baseball tournament revolves about the three district games and the ensuing tournament.

    For North Bullitt, the “real” season started off in fine form on Tuesday.

    The Eagles went to Moore and defeated the Mustangs 13-0 in five innings.

    Normally, when you place four pitchers on the mound, it’s not a good thing. For North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise, it was a great opportunity.

  • Trojans slip past BC in 2-1 duel

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – All spring, Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore has been lamenting his team’s lack of pitching depth, a situation that has gotten worse, not better, as injuries have slowed the team through the first four weeks of the campaign.

    That situation was highly evident last week despite the fact that the team played just two games. On Tuesday, the Cougars got a strong pitching performance from senior Callon Willet against 23rd District rival Southern, but the Cougars lost a 2-1 decision.

  • What a crazy week it was in Frankfort

     FRANKFORT --- As legislators were debating Friday night whether to give final approval to a major revenue bill, someone brought up the old joke about how most of us would prefer to fund government: Don’t tax you, don’t tax me; tax that fellow behind the tree.

    Based on that, those supporting this new law must have a large tree in mind, because that’s where they placed 95 percent of us, according to an analysis by the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy.

  • Pierce captures Pinewood Derby honors

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — Sometimes, all a kid needs is a block of wood and some tires to get the imagination wheels rolling.

    Brayden Pierce, a second grader at Pleasant Grove Elementary in Mount Washington, recently earned the top spot in his first ever pinewood derby.

    Pierce joined Cub Scout Pack #776, who meets at Saint Francis Xavier Church in Mount Washington, last fall. 

  • NB’s Ludwig & Hines combine for perfect game Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – The week didn’t start out well for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles but it sure did get better as it moved along culminating in a combined perfect game on Friday as the green and gold beat visiting Nelson County 13-0.

    Senior Madison Ludwig got the start and worked the first four innings and did not allow a base runner by Nelson County. Elizabeth Hines then came on and retired all three batters she faced in the fifth inning, ending the game with a line-out to the second baseman.

  • BE, BC don’t win a lot, but win key games

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Nothing has come easy this spring for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and while that probably won’t change for the young team this season, it is making them stronger.

    Much like the old saying ‘what doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger’ the Lady Chargers are getting better and learning even if the results are at times difficult for head coach Ricky Hoffman to swallow.
