  • Fox Chase looking for new place to store items

    FOX CHASE - Where does a small city keep its most important items?

    The city of Fox Chase has always implemented a storage unit, located at the Wee Stor-It Self Storage location on N. Preston Highway.

    Mayor Owen Taylor said the unit was always free to the city for use. However, new owners have decided otherwise.

    According to Taylor, the new owner would begin charging the city $115 per month for the unit’s use, effective as of Oct. 1.

  • 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.

  • County, MW at odds on larger facility permits

    MOUNT WASHINGTON  -- Currently, Bullitt County has the ability to inspect larger non-residential buildings no matter the location.

    But, the city of Mount Washington would love to have the opportunities to perform that service for its incoming businesses.

    For the city to assume the classification of having expanded jurisdiction, the state Department of Housing must give its blessing.

    And, in order for that to happen, Bullitt Fiscal Court must give up its current powers for the incorporated area only.

  • City audit getting closer to final report begins

     SHEPHERDSVILLE  -- A more extensive look at the city of Shepherdsville finances for the 2015-16 fiscal year might be coming to a close.

    At least that is the hope of current members of the Shepherdsville City Council.

    The previous council commissioned the accounting firm of Jones Nale and Mattingly to conduct a “forensic audit” due to concerns about some of the spending practices.

    The council approved a fee of up to $10,000 for the audit.
