  • BBB Warns: Beware of scams surrounding the death of Prince

     BBB is warning Prince fans to beware of scams that could pop up, surrounding his death. Yesterday, news broke that Prince Rogers Nelson was found dead in his home in Minneapolis at the age of 57.

    Scammers use celebrity deaths to con fans in a variety of ways. Whatever the scam may be, fans will end up with viruses or malware on their computers, or giving out personal information.

  • Helping the Scouts

     The Lincoln Heritage Boy Scout organization held its annual fund-raising dinner at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    Organizers were John Snider, Jose Cubero and Gary McGruder.

    John Asher of Churchill Downs was the guest speaker.

    This is a major fund-raiser each year for the Boy Scouts.

  • Lady Cougar softball wins two

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – While still not world-beaters, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars are showing some signs of being a competitive softball team after going 2-2 last week.

    Coach Mike Phillips team started this week with a 4-15 record.

    The most important win came on Wednesday when Bullitt Central mauled visiting Moore 16-1 in a district game that will be used to seed the post-season tournament. The Lady Cougars had beaten Moore earlier in the season.

  • East softball stays hot, wins two more

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The loneliest position on the Bullitt East Lady Charger softball squad this spring might just be that of the back-up pitcher.

    With one of the state’s top pitchers, sophomore Taylor Roby, hurling lights out this season, there hasn’t been the need for anyone else to throw. Bullitt East head coach Ricky Hoffman has talked about the position, but through the first 13 games of the season, Roby has thrown every pitch.

  • Good compromise

     Once you get into the legal arena, seldom are things completed quickly. There are rules that must be followed and due process to both parties that must be guaranteed.

    We are pleased that the discourse over the selection of the mayor in Shepherdsville has moved from whether there can be a meeting due to a lack of a quorum to being able to handle the business at hand.

    We commend attorney Mark Edison for coming up with a solution to allow his clients -- councilmembers Larry Hatfield and Bernie Brown -- to attend meetings and make sure there is a quorum.

  • US Marshals warn of “arrest warrant phone scam”

     The U.S. Marshals Service has received several phone calls from residents who have received phone calls from a person stating they are a U.S. Marshal and threating arrest if a “fine” is not paid.

    If you have received a phone call from a person saying they are a federal law enforcement officer, sheriff or an attorney for the government and they have an arrest warrant for you if a fine is not paid. It’s a scam.

  • Miami man sentenced for cigarette warehouse burglary conspiracy

     OWENSBORO – A Miami resident was sentenced this week in United States District Court by Chief Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr., to 57 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution of $1,486,164.45 - for conspiracy and theft charges stemming from the defendant’s participation in a warehouse burglary in Leitchfield, Kentucky, announced United States Attorney John E. Kuhn, Jr.

  • Charger baseball posts 3-1 week

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers went 3-1 last week and won a key game within the 24th District, but it was the only loss that left head coach Jeff Bowles shaking his head.

    For all the success his program has had in recent years, the Chargers just can’t seem to beat Sixth Region rival Pleasure Ridge Park, be it in the regular season or the post-season. That was the case again on Thursday as the Panthers beat the Chargers 7-2 in Mount Washington.

  • Consistency still eluding Central

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The only thing consistent about the Bullitt Central baseball team this spring is inconsistency.

    That was definitely the story last week as the maroon and gray posted a 2-2 mark. The team’s record starting this week is now 8-12.

    Unfortunately, the week started on a really bad note as the Cougars dropped a 3-2 decision to Moore, a contest that will be used for seeding the 23rd District Tournament in May.
