  • Lewis prepares for future with debate trip to Qatar

     Gatton Academy Class of 2018 Senior Maggie Lewis put her Arabic skills to use during a recent trip to Qatar, a sovereign country in Western Asia.

    “I have been learning Arabic for two years now and am currently enrolled in both Arabic 499 and Arabic 202 at Western Kentucky University,” she said.

    As a Bullitt Central High School sophomore in 2015, the 17 year-old daughter of Stephanie and Richard Lewis prepared applications to both the Carol Martin Gatton Academy at WKU and The Craft Academy at Morehead State University.

  • Deadline today to register to vote in May primary

     FRANKFORT -- Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes is reminding eligible Kentuckians that the deadline to register to vote in the upcoming May 22 Primary Election is Monday, April 23.

    “Our elections should be determined by a majority of voters, not a minority,” said Grimes. “Registering to vote is the first step to having your voice heard on Election Day. I call on all eligible Kentuckians to get registered by April 23 and then vote on May 22.”

  • Eagles grab first win and a lot of time on the diamond

      MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The start of the 2018 season has not been what coach Brian Wise and his North Bullitt Eagles would have wanted.

    However, getting a big win on Friday in the finale of the Cal Ripkin Experience made the trip back from Myrtle Beach a whole lot more enjoyable.

    The 12-2 victory over Bishop Watterson of Columbus, Ohio, was the first in seven outings for the Eagles.

    But, it showed that when you pitch well and defend well, you can win ball games.

  • Bullitt East rolls in Florida until final contest

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Off to a 6-0 start this season, the Bullitt East Chargers were ready to cap a successful spring break trip to Florida, but came out flat on Friday morning and dropped a 10-0 decision to a team from Highland Park in Illinois.

    That loss put a damper on what was still a successful week at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World for the red and gold. More than anything, the team played five games, a great improvement after playing two games in two weeks at home because of bad weather.

  • BC leaves bad weather, then finds bad weather

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Heading out of town for spring break in search of good weather, the Bullitt Central baseball team instead found more bad weather on a week-long trip to Alabama.

    Originally scheduled to play four games, the Cougars played just two varsity contests. That means that through the first three weeks of the season, coach G.J. Moore’s team has played only four games, standing at 1-3 heading into the important district games over the next few weeks.

  • Budget approved; awaits Bevin’s action

     Since our primary job in even-year sessions is writing a 2-year budget, many people consider April 2 the most important day we’ve had thus far.

    That was the day that, for the first time in memory House and Senate agreed on a budget and passed it to the governor in time to consider override of any vetoes he might issue.

  • Waiting to see what Governor does with bills

     FRANKFORT -- The common thread binding all good legislation is that, by the time the actual vote arrives, the outcome is all but a foregone conclusion.

    It takes a lot of effort to get to that point, of course.

    Stakeholders need to be included early on, because they are the ones who will be most affected by any change, and the public must have the chance to weigh in as well.

    It’s a process that can take months, but when it works, the positive impact is measured in years.

Stivers, to 50 months in prison following a jury conviction for wire fraud, securities fraud, and money laundering as part of a scheme that defrauded investors of $1,175,000 announced United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman. There is no parole in the federal system.

  • The Story of Anne Frank

     HILLVIEW — A diary never meant to be read has been turned into a two-person show and visitors to the Bullitt County Public Libraries got to see it first hand.

    The Bright Star Touring Theatre presented “The Story of Anne Frank” to patrons of all ages at the Hillview Public Library in preparation for Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 12.
