  • Transparency difficult one to describe but vital

     Over the past decade, transparency in government has been the big buzzword.

    As we celebrate Sunshine Week across the nation, it is important that the public takes an active role in its government.

    In a recent survey by Pulse Research Inc. in Kentucky, the overwhelming finding is that people still read newspapers.

    And, one of the key items they look for in their local newspaper is legal notices.

    This survey which was one in which individuals were invited to go online, over 340 people participated.

  • Lady Chargers seeking post-season success

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Over the past several seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers have been one of the best softball programs in the state – in the regular season.

    Despite that fact, the red and gold have very little to show for it in the post-season.

    Over the past four seasons, Bullitt East has averaged 25 wins a season only to lose in the 24th District Tournament final in each of those seasons. Even more frustrating is the fact that the team has gone 2-4 in Sixth Region play and has not advanced past the semi-finals.

  • North under new management with new (higher) expectations

     HEBRON ESTATES – After being an assistant coach the past two seasons at Ballard and two more seasons as an assistant coach at Whitefield Academy, Neal Hornback felt he was ready to become a high school softball head coach.

    He just didn’t know that the school closest to his home would end up being where he landed.

    It was really a whirlwind turn of events that landed Hornback at North Bullitt. Former Lady Eagle head coach Mike Nally did not return to his position. That decision had nothing to do with his work in the program.

  • North Bullitt grad flying high in U.S. Marine Corps

     HEBRON ESTATES - A former North Bullitt Eagle is now flying high following his United States Marine Corps recruit training.

    PFC Damian Whitehouse, a 2016 NB graduate, recently completed a three-month training at Parris Island, SC.

    The son of James Whitehouse and Mary Isaacs now heads to Camp Geiger, NC, for further combat training, then eventually to the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, FL, to begin aviation training.

    Whitehouse prepared for his Marine career through the USMC Delayed Entry Program, working with recruiter SSGT Justin McLinn.

  • Area tennis teams ready for strong spring

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While the early March weather is a bit unpredictable, tennis players in the area are back on the courts.

    The regular season begins this week for high school tennis teams with all looking toward regional action in early May.

    Bullitt Central

    Tiffany Gossett will be doing double duty this year as she coaches both the boys and the girls at Bullitt Central.

    On the girls’ side, Gossett will have an experienced squad.

  • Cougars poised to take a big step ahead this spring

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Over the past decade or more, when the Bullitt Central baseball program loses a strong ‘core’ group of players who have been the face of the program for several years, it has taken the program some time to get back to that level of play.

    Now, as the Cougars suffered heavy graduation losses last spring, veteran head coach G.J. Moore is looking to remain just as good, if not better, this time around.

  • Eagles looking to return to the top of Sixth Region

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the past few years, North Bullitt head coach Brian Wise has felt like the hunted.

    With two appearances in the state baseball tourney and a consistent participant in the Sixth Region tournament, North Bullitt has had a target on its back.

    This season, that target can go to another program.

    For Wise, it is a total rebuilding year as none of the eight starters will return to the same positions as a year ago.

  • Chargers have plans to reload, not rebuild

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – 2016 was another banner season for the Bullitt East baseball program.

    Under veteran head coach Jeff Bowles, the Chargers got hot over the second half of the season and then rolled in the post-season. The red and gold won a 24th District title and then captured their first regional title since 2008 with a 14-6 win over DeSales in the championship game of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • House passes critical education bill

     FRANKFORT — With just a few days left of the 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, much work remains, but much has been accomplished, especially as of late. Important legislation has passed on a variety of fronts, including education reform, reforms to our legal system, and promoting industrial hemp in Kentucky.

    At the end of last week, the House passed critical legislation that would expand school choice, and provide more opportunities for low-income children to receive a high quality education.
