  • BBB Tips on Giving after a Disaster

       The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers to be cautious of scam artists who prey upon people in need and those who want to help them. “Scam artists come out of the woodwork after a disaster strikes,” says Reanna Smith-Hamblin, Vice President of the BBB serving Louisville, Southern Indiana, and Western Kentucky, “and they are willing to do anything to take your money.”

    Here are some tips on how to protect yourself when disaster strikes:

  • District diamond play starts action Monday

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – With track and tennis finished for the season, focus this week will switch to the diamonds as both baseball and softball open post-season play with district action starting on Monday.
        In fact, five of the six Bullitt County squads playing this week will be in action on Monday. The lone holdout is the Bullitt East softball squad as they will not play until Tuesday.

  • East doubles records win before losing

    LEXINGTON – Playing in the Kentucky State Tennis Championships for the second straight year, the Bullitt East doubles team of senior Reese Milburn and junior Hunter Norris won a match before falling to the fourth-seeded team in the event.
        The first round win was the first victory for a Bullitt County boys’ entry in the state finals since 1998.

  • Renfrow medals twice for Central

    LOUISVILLE – For the first time since 2005, Bullitt Central’s track program scored points in the state championship meet on Saturday when sophomore Kasey Renfrow medaled in both the 300-meter hurdles and the triple jump.
        Renfrow reached the Class AAA State Championships last season in the long jump and that experience paid off on Saturday with two smooth performances that showed no signs of nerves.

  • Roby, Stewart claim runner-up spots

        LOUISVILLE – It was a good day, but not the great day that Bullitt East and North Bullitt were hoping for on Friday in the Class AA Kentucky State Track and Field Championships at the University of Louisville.

  • We Love a Parade

     Who doesn’t love a parade?

    The parade on Saturday morning is a big focal point of the annual Mount Washington Spring Festival.

    The Mount Washington Youth Baseball and Softball league uses the spring festival as its parade of teams. The Indians enjoyed the festivities on their float.

    Bailee Higgins was atop her big red tractor, which was another of the units in the parade.
