  • Weatherization funding still available for Bullitt County

      SHEPHERDSVILLE - Summer is here and the weather is heating up, but a local agency hopes to help take out the worry for some homeowners needing a little more summertime assistance.

    The Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency is offering its Weatherization program, designed to assist qualified families and seniors in paying utility bills and preparing their homes to be more energy-efficient.

Kuhn, Jr., United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, announced the grand jury indictment of a former Kentucky State Police Detective for making false statements, while under oath, during a United States District Court hearing in Lexington.

For that reason, the Eastern District was granted a recusal in this prosecution.

  • Hunters Hollow still looking for answers on sewer district

    HUNTERS HOLLOW - Like the Rolling Stones, the Hunters Hollow City Commission just can’t seem to get any satisfaction.

    Mayor Linda Parker inquired about updates to the ongoing situation involving potential surcharge rates to city residents due to a blown sewage treatment plant, followed by the sequential service takeover by the Bullitt County Sanitation District.

  • BC girls ready to improve with better numbers

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Needless to say, the 2016 girls’ soccer season did not end the way that Bullitt Central head coach Stephanie Porter wanted.

    Battling injuries and low numbers most of the season, the team had to withdraw from the 23rd District Tournament when several more players would not have been able to play because they were going to be out of town as Fall Break fell on that week.

  • Chargers struggle mightily in opening setback

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Trailing 13-0 less than five minutes into the game, the Bullitt East Chargers never put up a fight on Friday, dropping a 53-0 decision at home to Class 6-A rival Butler.

    The loss was not as upsetting to second year Charger head coach Mark Sander as it was the fact that his team never responded after Butler struck for the two early touchdowns.

    After it was 33-0 at halftime, the Bears added a touchdown five minutes into the third quarter and there was a running clock for the rest of the game.

  • Youthful North comes up short on the road

     GEORGETOWN — Adam Billings told his team exactly what to expect when they hit the road to take on one of the top teams in the state of Kentucky.

    And the Scott County Cardinals definitely lived up to Billings’ expectations.

    The Class 6-A title contender scored on the opening kicking and never looked back in defeating North Bullitt by a 56-19 count.

    But, the Eagles did win the second half 19-7.

  • AAA offers traffic safety tips for the “Great American Eclipse”

     Interest in the biggest coast-to-coast total solar eclipse in the U.S. has been growing leading up to the big event on Monday, August 21st!

    Fourteen states -- from Oregon to South Carolina -- lie in the “totality zone”, a 70-mile-wide, 3,000-mile-long arc where the moon will appear to completely blot the sun.  With all the buzz surrounding this celestial event, AAA East Central cautions those seeking an ideal location to view the eclipse to be mindful of traffic congestion and distracted driving.

  • Hospital real priority for Bullitt County

     I have heard from many constituents throughout Bullitt County and the western portion of Jefferson County concerned that we do not have a hospital in our district, and I share that concern. 

    Bullitt County, currently at a population of 80,000 people, is projected to grow to a population of over 100,000 people in the next ten years. 

    The county is the fastest-growing in our state, and yet, we do not have a hospital in the vicinity to serve these ever-growing needs.
