  • Brown makes noise at first state tourney

     BOWLING GREEN – There is always something to be said for making a big entrance.

    Eastside Middle School seventh-grader Macie Brown did just that last week at the Leachman Buick, GMC, Cadillac Girls’ State Golf Tournament at the Bowling  Green Country Club when she finished in a tie for 12th in her first year of eligibility for the Kentucky High School Athletic Association tournament.

  • East reaches final in boys’ 24th

     HEBRON ESTATES -- Playing at home suited Bullitt East just fine on Monday as the Chargers won its opening game in the 24th District Tournament with a 4-0 decision over Whitefield Academy.

    Amazingly, the 4-0 outcome is the identical score from the game when the two teams met during the regular season.

    With the win, Bullitt East advances to take on Fern Creek in the championship game on Wednesday at Bullitt East in a rematch of last year’s  district final, a match that Fern Creek won 3-1.

  • Domestic Violence Month: Physical and sexual violence

     Several months ago in Trimble County a nightmare occurred in daylight.  Lora Cable was granted a no unlawful contact domestic violence order against her partner Timothy Riddle.  The next day, Valentine’s Day, he walked into her work at a doctor’s office and killed her.

  • 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.”
