  • Lady Cougars fall just short

      SHEPHERDSVILLE — The two teams will face once another in the first round of the 23rd District tournament.

    But, in their regular season encounter, the Moore Mustangs played a little better down the stretch to take home a 41-37 victory over the host Bullitt Central Lady Cougars.

    Bullitt Central evened the score at 33 with 3:06 to play when Chloe Phillips scored.

    The home team drew to within 38-37 with 1:09 to go as Brooke Ewing scored on a rebound.

  • Mustangs just out-mature BC

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- When you lose by 34 points and your coach is not unhappy, you have a good hold on reality.

    But, Bullitt Central coach Jessie Curry was actually very pleased with his team’s play on Friday against a very talented Moore Mustang team.

    That optimism stems from the fact that the young Cougars were within 13 points of Moore early in the third quarter.

    “They battled for three quarters,” Curry said of his players. “We’re young and tonight we played against grown men.”

  • Bullitt County Woman’s Club helps local organizations

     The Bullitt County Woman’s Club, which is the oldest civic club in the county, recently made donations to two local organizations.

    Tammy Ott accepted a check for $1,437.50 for the renovation of Bowman’s Valley School. This doubles the club’s organization of the previous year.

    The club presented CASA of Bullitt County a check for $879.50. These funds were proceeds from the annual bake/talent auction held by the organization.

    Both organizations are very grateful for the continued support from the Woman’s Club.

  • Old Business

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Today starts an occasional column that I’ve called OLD BUSINESS.

    Why?

    Because we seem to forget as elected officials things that we’ve talked about. In other words, I’ll keep certain topics on the list until something is done.

    In the inaugural list, what about:

    *The city of Shepherdsville has a garbage contract. In that contract there is some contention that the city is responsible when Eco-Tech is unable to collect the bills.

  • Callie’s Cats provides better chance animals can live their full nine lives

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — While most college students are planning spring break trips or knee-deep in textbooks, Shepherdsville native Callie Wells has taken a slightly different route.

    With the help of the Kentucky Humane Society, Wells founded Callie’s Cats last July, an organization dedicated to rescuing cats and kittens from kill shelters and the wild, nurturing them to health and provided necessary care until a forever home is found.

  • Good or bad, things sure did happen fast in legislature

     Whether the bills approved on Saturday in Frankfort were good or bad, they sure happened fast.

    Kind of like showing you that you can do something and there isn’t anything you can do about it.

    But, with the majority, couldn’t you take your time and still get the same result in a few weeks?

    Maybe the folks on the other side of the aisle did the same thing for 100 years. Maybe we just didn’t know the speed in which very important pieces of legislation was passed.

  • A casual look at the final six months

      Alliance Entertainment started off the second half of 2016 by announcing that it would expand its Shepherdsville distribution facility and add 150 jobs.

    The expansion would make it the world’s largest distributor of CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray wholesale products.

    Noah Glass was selected to be part of the Team USA squad which participated in the National Archery in the Schools All-Star Championships.

    The competition was held in South Africa.

    Homearama came to Bullitt County in July.

  • Sixth Region showdown goes to Tigers 64-54

     FERN CREEK – In a clash of both 24th District and Sixth Region powerhouses, the Bullitt East Chargers won the first half against Fern Creek on Friday.

    Unfortunately, the home standing Tigers, behind the play off the bench of Clint Wickliffe, put together a strong second half and roared past the Chargers en route to a 64-54 victory.

  • Lady Chargers grab two wins

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The first game of the weekend might not have gone as smoothly as head coach Chris Stallings would have liked, but the Bullitt East Lady Chargers picked up the pace on Saturday.

    Against Fern Creek on the road on Friday, the Lady Chargers seemingly had the game amongst 24th District rivals well in hand, but they could never put the game away. After being up by as many as 20 points in the third quarter, Bullitt East let the Lady Tigers get within eight points before securing the 66-58 victory.

  • School board members recognized throughout the state in January

        Across the state this month, local school board members, including those in the Bullitt County school district, will be saluted by their administrators, faculty, staff, students and community members during Kentucky’s observation of School Board Recognition Month.
