  • Tolerance is something we need to practice

     A couple words for you today regarding tolerance. Or intolerance rather. Two fairly recent happenings have made me very upset and sad as an American.

    The first was an ad (I’m sure you all remember) done by Coca-Cola for the Super Bowl.

  • LEGO CHAMPS

     The FIRST Lego League Robotics team, Bullitt Blizzards, won the first-place research award for their project and placed fourth in robot table run at the FLL State Competition held at Diddle Arena at Western Kentucky University.

    The team advanced to state competition at the Engineers of Tomorrow regional tournament held in December. At that competition, the team won the mechanical design award for their robot BB3.

    Team members include Eli Dalton, Caryn Thomas, Tyler Thomas, Hannah Pyles, Lilly Mooney, Ethan Pyles and Ryan Dalton.

     Check out the latest scams and bad business in BBB’s April 2014 Hot Topics!

  • NB girls bounce back well from an early setback

     HEBRON ESTATES – After dropping a tough decision to county rival Bullitt East to end the previous week, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles bounced back in a big way last week, winning two games to head into a spring break trip to Florida with a lot of confidence.

    The big change for coach Mike Nally’s team was that senior Shelby Crenshaw was given the ball in the circle and she responded with two strong outings. Nally had wanted to keep Crenshaw more at shortstop this season after she split the pitching duties with Elise Mills last year.

  • Lady Chargers need lots of hits to be undefeated

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After starting the season with six straight wins in which they allowed only nine runs, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers needed 17 hits and almost three hours to get its seventh straight victory.

    Getting the schedule and the weather to cooperate on just one day last week, the red and gold played host to Meade County on Thursday, a day before the team was set to leave for Florida and its annual spring break trip.

    In the end, Bullitt East pushed across a two-out run in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat the Lady Waves 10-9.

  • Lady Cougars are still struggling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The rough start to the softball season at Bullitt Central didn’t get any smoother last week as the Lady Cougars struggled through three games, dropping all three to fall to 2-5 for the season.

    In all three of the losses last week the Lady Cougars gave up runs in the first inning and except for a 2-2 tie that lasted two innings against Elizabethtown on Monday, the maroon and gray never could bounce back.

  • Sessions nears end; budget work now

     FRANKFORT – This past week was the final full week of the 2014 Regular Session, leaving only a few days remaining until this year’s 60-day session comes to a close.

    Most activity this past week in the Capitol centered around talks between House and Senate leadership to hopefully reach a compromise on a new two-year budget for the Commonwealth, and a road plan of projects in Kentucky for the next six years.

  • Computer change to close office at noon on April 30

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt County is scheduled to go live with the court system’s new Accounts Receivable program on May 1, 2014. There are currently 22 Kentucky counties using the AR program, according to Bullitt Circuit Clerk Paulita Keith.

     It is anything but the giving holiday season throughout the commonwealth.

    And Bullitt County is part of it.

    It is election time as one will observe as one drives throughout the community.

    Election signs and election ads are popping up.

    Various jurisdictions have various laws about when signs can be posted.
