  • Team effort paves road to state approval

     As Bullitt County receives over $123 million in road project funding in the next six years, including the $25 million in federal revenue for the new I-65 interchange between Highway 480 and Highway 245, it is time to thank all of those who were involved in the long, hard, and complicated process of obtaining that funding.

    I want to thank my House counterparts, Representatives Russell Webber, James Tipton, and Linda Belcher for their hard work, but there are others who should be equally praised for their dedication.

  • Records fall as North Bullitt finishes regular season with walk-off victory

     HEBRON ESTATES -- The team ended the regular season with the most wins in school history at 27.

    Ryan Henson completed a perfect season at 10-0 on the hill for a school record.

    Logan Wyatt drove in 54 runs and Daulton Walls, Henson and Wyatt all ended up hitting over .400.

    And over the past two seasons, the senior class is 13-2 in post-season and 11-2 in elimination games in winning consecutive Sixth Region baseball titles.

    But, for the North Bullitt Eagles, that was then and this is now.

  • SAY CHEESE

     MOUNT WASHINGTON — Things got a little cheesy in Bullitt East High’s culinary arts class recently.

    To celebrate National Grilled Cheese Week, Katy Kendrick hosted a grilled cheese cook-off.

    The cook-off let groups of students work together to build the perfect grilled cheese that was later judged by Charger staff.

    The sandwich had to include a bread, a cheese, a spread and presentation mattered.

  • Hardaway Memorial Scholarship

     Miranda Rippy of Bullitt Central High was recently awarded the Hardaway Memorial Scholarship from First Harrison Bank.

    Rippy will receive a $1,500 scholarship that will go toward her studies at Morehead State University. She will major in education.

  • Smoking becomes moving violation if kids in vehicle

     Maybe it is more symbolic than anything.

    The Shepherdsville City Council recently voted to have an ordinance which prohibits smoking inside a vehicle where there are infants around.

    In reality, the “infant” definition means anyone under the age of 18.

    There were comments pro and con.

    It was mainly the health vs. civil liberties conversation.

    Some did not like the idea of having the right to fine someone for smoking with children in the vehicle.

  • BE’s Roby in complete control in pair of wins

    More information will be provided as it becomes available.

  • Redistricting will not just go away

     When is a public hearing not a public hearing?

    When the decision was made prior to listening to the public.

    However, it all works out pretty well when the decision reached is what the public wanted to begin with.

    OK, do I know that the Bullitt County Public School Board was against the proposal to redistrict due to overcrowding issues?

    Do I have a pretty good feeling that the consensus prior to the public hearing was to not take any action?

    Yes.
