  • 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.

  • First week of season is rough on the Eagles

       BARDSTOWN – A 14-point hole in the second half was more than the North Bullitt Eagles could overcome on Friday as the green and gold went on the road and dropped a 69-64 decision to Nelson County.

    The Eagles made a strong comeback to get back in the game. In fact, North Bullitt battled all the way back, tying the game at 46-46 when junior Ryan Henson drained a three-pointer to start the fourth quarter.

    SHEPHERDVILLE - The Shepherdsville City Council is seeking assurance of its own surety bonds.
