  • THE WAR: Central, East set to battle in rediscovered rivalry

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest annual one-night event in Bullitt County will return for the 21st time on Friday when The War is fought once again between Bullitt Central and Bullitt East on the gridiron.

        During a stretch in which Bullitt East won 10 straight games, the series lost a little luster. A pair of narrow Bullitt Central victories the past two seasons has put renewed energy back into the showdown.

  • BC fans will need a program to know the players

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest money-maker for the Bullitt Central football in 2010 might be from program sales.

    Cougar football fans will have trouble telling the players this fall without a roster. Gone are the core group of players who were the key to the turnaround of the program over the last three seasons after head coach Danny Leasor returned for his second stint at the helm.

    Bullitt Central has gone 19-14 over the past three seasons, the best record over that time span in over 35 years. The Cougars have gone 8-3 each of the past two seasons.

  • With 11 seniors, Lady Chargers ready for a big year

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A senior class with 11 members has the Bullitt East Lady Chargers thinking big heading into the 2010 girls’ soccer season.

        Nine of the 11 seniors are veterans of the program, having played for head coach Britney Orme the past two seasons. There is one foreign exchange student and one new senior on the 20-player varsity roster.

  • NB hopes changes lead to better starts

    HEBRON ESTATES - After two frigid starts in back-to-back losses, North Bullitt head coach Brett Newton will make some pre-game changes in hopes of heating up his Eagles on Friday when they return home to host Woodford County.

    At this point, the two teams have combined for five losses this season so there is a lot riding on this contest as both teams look for win number one.

  • Chargers still young, but are more experienced

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Three letters might spell the difference for the Bullitt East Charger football team in 2010.

    Coach Doug Preston’s team went through injury after injury last season, going from a spot in the Class 4-A state championship game in 2008 to a 4-7 mark a year ago that included a first-round loss in the post-season. No high school football team can expect to be perfectly ‘healthy’. Preston is just hoping to be ‘healthier’ this season.

  • Slow start make Eagles easy prey for Dragons

    CRESTWOOD - The woes which have been suffered by the North Bullitt Eagles the first two games of the season are nothing that can’t be fixed.

    However, those fixes won’t come easy.

    After a lackluster performance in the first half, North Bullitt fought back but turnovers and penalties at crucial times left the visitors with a 37-20 defeat at South Oldham.

    “For a second straight game, we came out flat,” said head coach Brett Newton. “We can’t afford to do that.”

  • Board makes decision no one wants to make

        Have you ever heard anyone say, “I love to raise taxes”?

        Probably not.

        The Bullitt County Public School Board members were faced with an interesting dilemma the other night.

        Do they increase the real property tax rate by 0 percent, 2 percent or 4 percent?

        After the motion to take the middle road failed, members were faced with either receive no additional revenue for the next year or take in about $1.5 million.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • BCPS school board votes to raise tax rates

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Property owners in Bullitt County will be paying a few more dollars to the public school system.

            By the narrowest of margins, the Bullitt County Public School Board voted 3-2 on Tuesday evening to take the 4 percent allowed and to raise its tax rate when bills are sent out later this month.

            After a proposal to only raise the real property tax by 2 percent failed, the board voted to increase all rates by the amount allowable without fear of voter recall.

  • Center for Women site in Bullitt staying busy

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A semblance of stability in a secure location has allowed the Center for Women and Families to steadily increase services for Bullitt County.

        A local advisory council, along with increased security by local police, have also helped CWF maintain focus in assisting area clients.
