  • BC’s youth hoping to learn from past success

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – No matter how you look at it, Bullitt Central’s boys’ soccer program had a breakout season in 2015.
        For the first time ever, the team won a 23rd District title, beating Southern 1-0 on penalty kicks, and then the Cougars beat Bullitt East 4-3 for the first regional win in program history. The run didn’t end until a 3-0 loss to Fairdale on the artificial turf at Mercy High School in the Sixth Region semi-finals.

  • Eagles look for rise to top of the district

        HEBRON ESTATES – North Bullitt boys’ soccer coach Eddie Fightmaster wants more.
        The second year Eagle head coach wants more players.
        Heading into Monday’s season-opener against DeSales, North Bullitt has just 20 players in the program. With one of those players being an eighth-grader, that leaves just 19 players for varsity contests.
        With a better than average season a year ago and stability at the top, the coach thought his numbers would be improved.

  • Top end is strong, but Eagles seeking depth

     HEBRON ESTATES – After going from 1-10 to 9-3 in the first year under head coach Adam Billings, it might have seemed that football would be king at North Bullitt.

    But, heading into his second season, Billings seems to be doing more rebuilding that he did when he arrived. The entire program has just 55 players and on a tough Friday night Billings doesn’t expect to use more than 20 to 22 players.

  • Shepherdsville honors its youngest ‘police’ officer

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Shepherdsville Police Department’s newest member is by far their youngest.
        At nine years old, Hayden Heck is also the department’s favorite officer.
        Heck was sworn in as a special deputy for a day, and given his own uniform, all as a result of his random act of kindness toward the department.
        The Pioneer News ran a story in July about communities showing support for local police officers following fatal police shootings throughout the country.

  • Hillview establishes code enforcement ordinance, board

        HILLVIEW - A nuisance is a nuisance in the city of Hillview, and a new code enforcement board will work toward regulating them.

        The three-member board will meet, as necessary, on the second Monday of the month, 6:30 p.m., at the Hillview Government Center. The members will be paid $25 for each meeting.

  • All goes well on first day; Maryville to start on Monday

        SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Take away a construction glitch at one school and superintendent Keith Davis was very pleased with the opening days in Bullitt County.
        Through the second day of the new school year, 12,494 students were in attendance. This is down 418 from the previous year.
        However, most of that could be accounted for -- 339 students who were in attendance last year were not in attendance this year.
