  • Transportation needs must be met

     FRANKFORT — As a conservative, I believe in a limited government, and a government that is efficient and effective with its citizens hard-earned tax dollars.

    However, it is vital that both the federal and state government keeps their promises on one of government’s core functions: our transportation infrastructure.

  • Central’s numbers still on the rise for boys’ soccer

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Instead of going for the quick fix when he took over the program a little over a year ago, Bullitt Central boys’ soccer coach Aaron Shaw has been working from the ground up to build a strong foundation.

    The progress is obvious as the Cougars have 38 players this season, perhaps the largest number in the program’s history. Shaw is pretty much planning on having completely separate varsity and junior-varsity squads this fall.

  • Nfor takes over the North Bullitt boys’ soccer squad

     HEBRON ESTATES – A desire to get a little closer to his ‘other’ soccer job in Louisville has brought Emmanuel Nfor to the boys’ job at North Bullitt.

    A 14-year resident of the United States who was born in Cameroon, Nfor coaches soccer in the United program in Louisville. After graduating from Campbellsville University, Nfor was also coaching high school soccer in Frankfort at Western Hills High School. When the commute just got to be too much, Nfor looked into coaching jobs in the Louisville area and the North Bullitt position was posted.

  • North looking to continue winning ways in ‘17

     HEBRON ESTATES – After two seasons of getting too -- and winning -- post-season games, North Bullitt head coach Adam Billings has the program heading in the right direction.

    The coach doesn’t see any reason why that success should not continue this fall, but he does admit that there will be a little bit of a learning curve as the program has just six seniors and several of them are new to football.
