  • Lady Cougars win again, but Cougars have long weekend

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The quick start for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars continued on Friday as the maroon and gray picked up a third straight win as they held off visiting Oldham County 54-50.

    The weekend was not as good for the school’s male counterpart as the Cougars dropped a pair of games after opening with a win over Thomas Nelson. On Friday, the Cougars fell to Bethlehem 57-43 on the road before traveling again on Saturday to Campbellsville for a one-day ‘showcase’ event where they lost to Monroe County 56-41.

  • What happened to Shep. Roller Mill?

     The Shepherdsville Roller Mill was located on 4th Street in Shepherdsville, Kentucky.  The Roller Mill was a wooden structure large enough to use as a Roller Mill.

    The Roller Mill was a new method of grinding Meal and flour from the older method of the water wheel.     The Roller Mill Company was a part of what was formerly known as the Tile Factory Lot.  In 1913, the property owner was Maraman and Company.

  • AG cautions to give wisely this holiday season

     FRANKFORT - As Kentuckians generously open their pocketbooks and wallets for those in need of a helping hand this holiday season, Attorney General Jack Conway wants to make sure your charitable donations do not end up in the hands of scam artists.

  • 120 percent rate hike; Surcharge sought to pay off costs

     HUNTERS HOLLOW - A collapse of a private sewer treatment plant in March could come back to bite the 700 customers.

    Bullitt Utilities, which owns and operates the Hunters Hollow Treatment Plant, is seeking a surcharge which would add $32.19 per month to the current bills of its residential customers.

    Currently, customers are paying a flat sewer rate of $26.83. That amount would increase 120 percent to $59.02, if allowed by the state Public Service Commission.

  • Court of Appeals reverses city on rezoning next to church

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - A large agricultural tract at the intersection of Highway 245 and Highway 61 is no longer zoned light industrial and highway business.

    In a unanimous opinion, a three-panel Court of Appeals opinion reversed the 2012 rezoning of 130 acres.

    That decision by the Shepherdsville City Council rezoned a tract despite the protest of members of Bardstown Junction Baptist Church.

    The appeals court decision last week would return the matter to the Shepherdsville City Council. 

  • Light Up Mount Washington 2014

     For the second straight year, Mother Nature played games with the Light Up Mount Washington celebration.

    After cancelling the event last year, activities moved inside this time.

    Inside First Baptist Church, there was plenty of caroling, face painting, cookies and hot chocolate and a visit from Mr. Magic.

  • Planning commission not so quick to decide fate of Kings Church rezoning

     KINGS CHURCH - For some, driving five or six miles to the nearest store would not be a problem.

    For others, they would like a little more convenience.

    But for planners in Bullitt County, they are more concerned about the safety of community.

    With that concern still unanswered, the Bullitt County Planning Commission tabled a rezoning request that would bring a Dollar General store to Kings Church Road.

  • Opinions must be heard if you don’t like request for surcharge

     The 700-plus customers of the Hunters Hollow sewer treatment system in northern Bullitt County better have some pretty broad shoulders.

    Since late March, the treatment facility off East Blue Lick Road has been operational only due to the use of a temporary system.

    A major collapse of the system has caused for Bullitt Utilities to do some thinking about its future.

    Do you rebuild the existing plant?

    Do you try to contract with another entity to take over the crippled system?

    Do you just run away as quickly as you can?

  • Let’s remain focused on prize

     As the hype surrounding the adventures of the Southeast Bullitt Fire District continues to swirl, do not let us lose focus of the prize.

    The real concern for years has been the spending of the funds. That spending could be legal. It might be illegal.

    The purchases may be ill-advised. But they might not be illegal.

  • Lady Eagles pull away late for victory; start season 2-0

     BARDSTOWN – A 13-5 surge to open the fourth quarter gave the North Bullitt Lady Eagles some breathing room on Friday against Nelson County and the green and gold needed all of that advantage before winning 71-67.

    The victory was the second in as many games for the Lady Eagles to open the season. Amazingly, the team has scored 71 points in each of the first two contests.
