  • North proves they are still the team to beat in 23rd

     HEBRON ESTATES – The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have won the last four 23rd District volleyball titles and the green and gold showed they are the team to beat again after they downed visiting Bullitt Central 25-22, 25-13, 25-18 on Thursday.

    Three of the four district titles came with wins over Bullitt Central in the championship match.

    The win came just three days after North Bullitt had gone up 2-0 at South Oldham only to lose the match in five games.

    Against their county rivals, there was no letdown down the stretch.

  • NB boys’ soccer enters big week; Central girls win for the first time

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It will be boys’ soccer taking center stage this week in the area as there will be a pair of intra-county matches taking place.

    In fact, both matches involve the North Bullitt Eagles who are coming off a great week as coach Eddie Fightmaster’s team won three games in as many days with all three wins coming at home.

  • Right choice made on tax rate in county

     There are easy decisions and there are good decisions.

    While we understand the desire to lower tax rates, three members of Bullitt Fiscal Court were exactly right in at least keeping the real estate property tax the same for 2015.

    Keeping the current rate will at least generate a little more revenue for the county. Dropping down to the compensating rate would have been a grand gesture but not a sound one.

  • A TALE OF TWO TAXES

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It was an interesting discussion that probably needs to be held more regularly.

    Steve and Barbara Plenge appeared at a recent meeting of the Shepherdsville-Bullitt County Tourist and Convention Commission.

    They had questions about the makeup and operation about the organization.

    For those regularly attending meetings or following the happenings of the organization, it might not be too complicated.

    But, then again, maybe it is.

  • Chargers fall, but the performance is improved

     ELIZABETHTOWN – The outcome wasn’t what anyone wanted, but the performance was a big step in the right direction on Friday for the Bullitt East Chargers.

    Following two lackluster efforts to start the season, the red and gold stepped up to a tough challenge against Class 6-A Central Hardin on the road. Bullitt East led 6-0 until the final minute of the first half only to have a handful of big plays end the upset bid 35-13.

  • North stays hot; big game next total in rout of Trojans from last year in two games

     JEFFERSONTOWN -- If it was a neighborhood pickup game of football and teams were selected based on what guys looked like without their shirts on, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings wasn’t sure how quickly his players would be selected.

    But games on Friday nights are not played without shirts and pads.

    No matter what the comparison of physiques might reveal, North Bullitt was definitely the better football team on Friday night.

    The Eagles went to 3-0 on the season with an impressive 42-6 victory over Jeffersontown.
