    And solid waste coordinator Larry Hatfield said it went well for an event that he really had no idea what the interest might be.

  • Have a safe Halloween... if you dare

     The tinsel flowing off the branches of the Christmas tree next to the air conditioning unit, reflecting twinkly lights off the ornaments, reminds me of one thing: It’s Halloween time in Bullitt County.

    While I think it’s scary to see Yuletide decorations in October, it still doesn’t take away from the fun autumnal season and the biggest of the Fall holidays.

  • Black Monday - Regional volleyball is a short week

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – What was hoped to be a long week for Bullitt County volleyball teams, turned into a short week as all three of the local teams lost on Monday in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • Turnovers doom Eagles

     HEBRON ESTATES – Saturday afternoon football doesn’t seem to suit the North Bullitt Eagles very well.

  • BC hits a rough patch Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Facing a team in the top 10 in the state’s biggest football classification is tough enough.

    And when you fumble the kickoff on two consecutive plays to open the game, things suddenly got much worse.

    The Bullitt Central Cougars fans may have enjoyed the Senior Night festivities and a spirited halftime performance by the band but there wasn’t much else to cheer for in a 43-7 loss to Simon Kenton.
