  • Maryville Elementary teachers live dream of performing in live theatre

     PIONEER VILLAGE - Just like Cinderella living her dream at the ball, two local teachers will experience the dream of performing live in a play.

    Maryville Elementary instructors Jennifer Cornell and Kelly Aikman will appear in the Wilderness Trail Players presentation of Cinderella at St. Luke Catholic Church on May 12-14.

    Based at St. Luke, the Wilderness Trail Players was founded in 1991, their name based on Blue Lick Road once being referred to as the Wilderness Trail.

  • Other side of charter story

     There were some national initiatives former President Obama favored that I disagreed with; and, one that I respectfully but vehemently disagreed with, was the concept of charter schools. In his book, “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama cited his reasons for supporting charter schools. I found that none of them actually defended this idea. 

  • North at East baseball Friday at 8:30 p.m.

      While the Mount Washington Spring Festival will be taking place downtown, baseball will be the focus on the east side of town as the Valu-Market Charger Challenge will be contested at Bullitt East on Friday and Saturday.

    This year’s event is loaded with top talent as the last three Sixth Region champions, North Bullitt (in 2014 and 2015) and Bullitt East (2016) will take part along with Louisville Trinity, the top-ranked team in Kentucky this season. The fourth squad is Martha Layne Collins.

  • Eagles struggle in short week

     HEBRON ESTATES – It wasn’t the best of weeks for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    In fact, head coach Brian Wise said the game on Wednesday against LaRue County resulted in one of those annual heart-to-heart talks with his players.

    Still, with two weeks to go in the regular season, Wise is looking for a bounce-back week as the Eagles face a tough five-game stretch, including three at Bullitt East this Friday and Saturday.

  • Central rallies past Central for 10-5 baseball win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – High School baseball teams in Kentucky are allowed to play up to 36 games in the regular season.

    Last week, Bullitt East was fortunate to play one game.

    Welcome to spring in Kentucky. Mother Nature was the clear-cut winner last week as heavy rain made play impossible on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    So, Bullitt Central head coach G.J. Moore was glad that his team did get one complete game in during the week. On Tuesday, the maroon and gray rallied from a fourth inning hole to defeat visiting Louisville Central 10-5.

  • Pitch committee does enough as East beats CAL

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Veteran Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles will be the first to say that his team has a wealth of good pitchers.

    Unfortunately, the coach will also say that to this point, none of those pitchers has stepped forward to be the team’s ‘ace’, or a great pitcher.

  • Kentucky Derby... Little Flock Style

     An entire festival celebrated in one event, and all for a good cause. Little Flock Christian Academy hosted a parade in the church parking lot, centering around the events of the annual Kentucky Derby Festival.

    Different classes supported different themes, such as the Great Balloon Race, the Great Bed Races, even the Kenducky Derby, while other classes promoted the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

  • Man indicted for murder in death of pedestrian

     HILLVIEW — A man has been indicted for the March 4 murder of a pedestrian.

    Bradley Troy Cannon, 38, of Louisville, has been indicted by the Bullitt County Grand Jury on four charges relating to the death of Robert Pace.

    The grand jury issued the following charges:

    *Murder, which is a Class A felony that is punishable by 20 years to life in prison

    *Tampering with physical evidence, which is a Class D felony punishable by 1-5 years in prison

    *Wanton endangerment, also a Class D felony

  • Guilty or not, indictments cause county great harm

     There is always that disclaimer on any indictment -- such charge does not mean guilt or innocence. It only means that a certain number of grand jurors felt there was enough evidence to move forward with a criminal trial.

    While an indictment does not mean guilt or innocence, it can bring shame.

    It can obviously bring shame to the individual indicted. Even if cleared of the allegations, the cloud is never totally lifted.

    It can also bring shame to a community.

  • ANNIE Jr. at SES

     The stars of tomorrow came out for a special performance at Shepherdsville Elementary.

    The school hosted a musical performance, Annie Jr., over three nights as part of an evening of dinner and entertainment.

    Led by SES music instructor Stacey Stults, students sang, danced and acted their way through the classical tale of the red-headed orphan in 1930s New York City.

    Members of the Bullitt Lick Middle School and Bullitt Central High School music departments assisted with the production, as well as SES staff members.
