  • East finishes with strong 4-1 week

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It wasn’t a perfect week, but the Bullitt East Chargers closed out the 2015 baseball regular season with a strong week as the red and gold won four of the final five games including the last three in a row.

    Bullitt East will now head into this week’s 24th District Tournament with a 21-14 record. The Chargers played Fern Creek on Tuesday and with a victory will move into Wednesday’s championship game against Jeffersontown at 6 p.m. at Jeffersontown.

  • NB gains ‘mo’ with perfect closing week

     HEBRON ESTATES -- If North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise had the opportunity to write the script for the final week of the regular season, it couldn’t have been much better than what actually happened.

    Coming off the only week this season where the bats were a little weak, North Bullitt completed a 25-11 regular slate with four straight victories over quality opponents.

    Besides the bats coming alive once again, Wise was able to give catcher Chance Egnor and centerfielder Daulton Walls a little time off to mend some slight injuries.

  • BC struggles into post-season

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – There was some good news off the field for the Bullitt Central Cougars last week, but that didn’t translate into the team’s final three games of the regular season as the maroon and gray dropped each contest.

    That action left Bullitt Central with a 9-20 mark heading into this week’s 23rd District Tournament at North Bullitt. The Cougars were scheduled to play Southern in a semi-final game on Tuesday.

  • Council to be commended for looking at big picture

     Often times we have opportunities for the future.

    Those opportunities can leave a stamp or a legacy.

    Unfortunately, things get in the way of such opportunities -- which often don’t come along very often.

    While not trying to measure the impact of the recent decision of the Shepherdsville City Council to the drive of former Gov. Martha Layne Collins and the Toyota deal, there are similarities.

    Both projects were large in scale in terms of what the respective government agencies had been dealing with.

  • Developing thinking through your writing

      French writer Gustave Flaubert once wrote, “The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.” 

    In this age of posts, tweets, and sound-bites, it is easy to think that the real art of writing is essentially dead.  But, as Flaubert implies, the careful setting down of words on a page is not just a method by which we communicate, it is more importantly a method by which we develop that most important of all academic and citizenship skills: critical thinking. 

  • Large local contingent headed to state track

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After waiting a week for the final word, a large local contingent of Bullitt County athletes will make the trip to Lexington on Saturday for the Class AAA Kentucky State Track and Field Championships being held at the University of Kentucky.

    There are actually 36 athletes on the scoring sheets who could be in action on Saturday with five of the six area boys’ and girls’ programs having at least one entry. That number is a little misleading as coaches were allowed to put up to eight names in each of the relays.

  • Hunters Hollow not encouraged about summer of sewer smells

    HUNTERS HOLLOW - Heading into summer months, the Hunters Hollow City Commission still fear another season of foul smells and dirty streams are looming.

  • District diamond play starts today

    SHEPHERDSVILLE--The post-season for Bullitt County baseball and softball teams will start this week with 23rd District Tournament play at North Bullitt and 24th District action at Jeffersontown High School.
