     Compiled by Charles Hartley

    In this column we will look back 15, 30, 60, and 90 years to capture glimpses of what was happening in Bullitt County in each of these years. Today we will focus on the month of May.

    1998 - 15 Years Ago.

  • Tasting party to benefit YMCA program scholarships

     Looking for a night free from cooking? Ever wondered what Bullit County might taste like? Then come on by the first annual "Taste of Bullit County" June 7 to taste some of the local wares from restaurants such as Country Cupboard and Cedar Grove Coffee House.

    The event will be hosted by the Bullit County YMCA and will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the New River's Edge Reception and Event Hall.

    The hall is located at 416 S. Buckman St. where the old Ridgemont Furniture Galleries store was.

  • Red ambulance to bring attention to dangers of cardiac arrest

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt County EMS is seeing red; soon the rest of the county will see as well.

    A first look was provided during an official dedication ceremony for the new Cardiac Awareness Ambulance at the EMS headquarters on Saltwell Drive,

    The official working ambulance is the second on the Bullitt County EMS roster to contain a special awareness color. In 2011 EMS presented their pink ambulance to raise breast cancer awareness.

  • Pow Wow to return to the county June 1-2

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – After taking a hiatus last year, the Red Crow Indian Council will resume its annual Spirit of the Eagle Pow Wow on June 1-2.

         However, it will be done with a heavy heart.

         Linda Dishon, a long-time member of the council and organizer of the Pow Wow, recently passed away.

         Eddy Glascoe, president of the organization, said that it is a huge loss but that others in the council have stepped up to make sure the event will be held as planned.

  • Chargers shut out field to claim 24th crown

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It would take more than some rain and lightning to keep the Bullitt East Chargers from defending its 24th District baseball title on Wednesday.

         The thunder inside the Charger bats may not have been as loud and as long as head coach Jeff Bowles may have wanted. But the Chargers were good enough to turn back the Jeffersontown Chargers 5-0 to earn its first crown in the 24th District.

         Both teams will advance to the Sixth Region tournament, which opens play on Monday, May 27.

  • Eagles snap drought with win over BC

     OKOLONA – In a dogfight for the school’s first district baseball title in 10 years, veteran North Bullitt skipper Brian Wise went into his bag of surprises.

         While not particularly fond of the notion of a squeeze bunt with the bases loaded and a lefty at the plate, Wise felt he had to do something in the 1-1 game on Tuesday.

         And, after the play worked once, he decided to do it again.
