  • Softball still struggling

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Heading to Florida for spring break worked out to some extent for both the Bullitt East Lady Chargers and the North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    First and foremost, the two teams found some good weather and got in plenty of action, something that was lacking here at home over the first two weeks of the season. What didn’t improve was the winning percentage as both teams posted 1-4 marks on their trips.

  • County burned up usefulness of discussion on medical pot

     It was fun while it lasted but its welcome was worn out quite quickly.

    The issue on medical marijuana was a popular one in Bullitt County.

    Proponents of the medical marijuana legislation even made it to a meeting of the Fox Chase City Council -- albeit a dozen or so people present.

    This shows the commitment the cause has for the legalization of medical marijuana.

  • Chippiness needs to stop if city wants to continue movement in positive direction

     It seems like just yesterday when the Shepherdsville City Council might have been described as dysfunctional.

    Legal issues were flying. Councilmembers weren’t attending meetings. Without a quorum, meetings had to be cancelled.

    Lo and behold, we had elections. There were a majority of new councilmembers elected. A new mayor was placed into office by the voters.

    Good times seemed to be ahead.

    Well, the honeymoon lasted for awhile but things seemed to unravel at the latter part of 2017.

  • Fox Chase supports medical marijuana push

     FOX CHASE - Council members heard a lengthy discussion the previous month from an organization hoping to legalize medical marijuana, if not recreational marijuana, in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

    The next month, those same council members decided to heed the words of the group led by Dan Seum Jr., passing a resolution to show support.

    The Fox Chase City Council unanimously approved a resolution requesting and urging the state general assembly to address the needs of citizens by legalizing the medical prescription of cannabis as a health treatment option.

  • BBB, NCSA encourage "Digital Spring Cleaning"
  • Bernheim finishes fifth in NASP state championships

     LOUISVILLE – Sometimes in archery, it is hard to tell if the success comes from the youngest and works its way up or if the programs develop from the top down.

    Eastside Middle School really started the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) many years ago and those shooters eventually fueled a strong Bullitt East program for a number of years.

    Now, on the other side of the county, it appears that the middle schools are taking the example from Bullitt Central and North Bullitt and building on success to power those programs in the long run.
