  • Bullitt Cup is once more on the line on Friday

     HEBRON ESTATES – Once again, the Bullitt Cup will be in the balance on Friday when Bullitt East travels to North Bullitt for the 38th renewal of The Clash.

    The two teams will have to put on quite a show to equal last season’s 44-43 Bullitt East win on their home field. The Chargers had just two wins heading into that game but put together their best effort of 2016 to beat a North Bullitt team that would go on to play in the Class 5-A, Region 2 championship game against South Oldham.

  • BC in big test at South Oldham

     PEEWEE VALLEY – There is never a dull moment this fall with the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    Coach Matt Kuehn’s team has a positive record at 5-2, but over the past four games, where the team has a 2-2 record, none of the games has been decided by more than six points, win or lose.

  • Dad, it’s time that you can rest in peace

     You’re prepared. But I guess you’re never prepared for death.

    Leaving the hospital late Sunday night, he seemed to be in very good spirits. Maybe that’s the way it is just before you enter your  next phase in life.

    All the kids had gotten to visit. His sisters were there. He probably talked more in that one day than he had in the past year.

    He told me he was dying. I really didn’t believe him. Maybe I should have paid more attention.

  • New to the Chamber

     A long-time, locally-owned business is now one of the newest members of the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce.

    Shepherdsville native Wayne Lewis and his wife, Dana, have been co-owners of Discount Auto Supply since 1989. The company was founded in 1976.

    “I worked here when I was 16,” Wayne said, “Ronnie Tinnell and his family started it. One day I fixed his brakes for him, and he offered me a job.”

  • Post-season soccer starts Monday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The post-season for all six Bullitt County soccer programs will start this week with district play at various locations in Bullitt and Jefferson County.

    With the top two teams in each tournament both advancing to next week’s Sixth Region Tournament, there really isn’t a ‘big’ game in the early rounds of any of the four tournaments with the only post-season meeting being decided by two goals or less being the Girls’ 23rd District Tournament semi-final with Bullitt Central taking on Moore.

  • North gets much needed boost from facing Nelson

     BARDSTOWN — When it’s been over a month since your last victory, sometimes you have to learn how to celebrate.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, it was a happy locker room on Friday after a 53-7 district win over host Nelson County.

    For head coach Adam Billings and his players, it was a great bus ride home.

    “We came out and did what we needed to do,” said Billings, whose team is now 1-2 in district play with two games to go. “I was excited for the kids.”

  • BE can’t stay with state power South Oldham

     CRESTWOOD — Coaches will also say that when a player goes down to an injury, it’s next man up.

    But, in reality, when you have a small roster, injuries can play a big role.

    And, on the football field where a player is playing on both sides of the ball, an injury means that two players have to step up.

    On Friday, a beat up Bullitt East Charger team traveled to play one of the top 5-A teams in the state — South Oldham.

    Injuries or not, Bullitt East head coach Mark Sander knew it would be a battle.

  • Cougars barely hang on to beat Oldham

     BUCKNER – Too much celebrating by Oldham County allowed Bullitt Central to celebrate a key district win on Friday as the Cougars held on down the stretch to secure a 21-19 victory on the road.

    The Cougars had scored on three of their first four possessions of the game and led 21-6 at halftime. That all changed in the second half when Bullitt Central’s offense sputtered as Oldham County was heating up.

  • THINK PINK: Annual awareness to broaden scope to all varieties of cancer

    SHEPHERDSVILLE—October may signify the return of pumpkin spice lattes and sweater-weather, but it also serves as a month of breast cancer awareness.

    Each year, the Bullitt County Health Department, the Kentucky Cancer Program and the Bullitt County Cooperative Extension Service work to ensure residents “think pink” by hosting the annual Think Pink evening at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre in Shepherdsville.

    On Tuesday, Oct. 17, both men and women are invited to attend the free event from 5-7:30 p.m.

  • It will be road warrior week for area football teams

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The last two undefeated teams in Class 5-A, District 3 will clash on Friday when Bullitt East goes on the road to battle two-time defending district champion South Oldham.

    In fact, all three Bullitt County football programs will be on the road this week in district play. In addition to Bullitt East, Bullitt Central will be playing close by as they will be in Buckner playing Oldham County. North Bullitt will make the short trip south to take on Nelson County.
