  • 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.

  • County attorney to participate in driving safety campaign

     If you choose to drink and drive in Bullitt County, County Attorney John Wooldridge is joining with law enforcement throughout the nation for the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign, Aug. 16-Sept. 4.

    The strong nationwide impaired driving crackdown will include high-visibility enforcement, high-profile events, and will be supported by national paid advertising, creating a comprehensive campaign to curb impaired driving.

  • NO SCHOOL Aug. 21 due to ECLIPSE

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Like a snow day, it doesn’t happen very often, but an upcoming unusual weather event has officially resulted in a day off of school.

    The Bullitt County Public School Board unanimously voted to make Monday, Aug. 21, a professional development day for the BCPS system, due primarily to the total solar eclipse event.

    While teachers may have professional development opportunities on that day, students will not be in class.

  • North looking to regain top spot in 23rd District

    HEBRON ESTATES – After a somewhat disappointing 9-23 record a year ago and a runner-up finish in the 23rd District after five straight championships, North Bullitt volleyball coach Keith Higgs is working on the philosophy this season that less is more.

    After keeping 32 players in the program a year ago, the second-year head coach this year opted to keep just 24 players. At this point, the varsity roster has just nine names, but some junior-varsity players could move up if needed.

  • A better start would greatly benefit BE in 2017

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – A year ago, the Bullitt East Chargers gave up 196 points in losing the first four games of the regular season.

    Unfortunately, that pretty much set the tone for the season, the first under head coach Mark Sander. The Chargers did go on to post three victories (a fourth win later had to be forfeited) and they did reach the play-offs, but lost the opening round game 32-13 to Madison Central.

    That left the program with a final 3-8 record.

  • Talent present at BC, but Kuehn seeking depth

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With winning records each of the past three seasons, two Bullitt Cup titles in the same span as well as two post-season wins, the Bullitt Central football program has succeeded recently despite having three different head coaches over that span.

    Now, the program is stable at the top with the return of head coach Matt Kuehn for a second season. The coach also feels that there is enough talent to add to the recent success story – barely.

  • Volunteers spend night cleaning up old cemetery in Mount Washington

     MOUNT WASHINGTON—Standing next to Highway 44 in Mount Washington is a stone vault that holds the remains of a War of 1812 veteran and his wife.
