  • What happens when called for jury duty

      Jury duty is perhaps one of the areas that creates the most questions for our office. 

    The first question is usually, “why me?”  Jurors are selected for service by the The Kentucky Court of Justice Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).

    The Kentucky Court of Justice strives to ensure that jury pools are a true representation of Kentucky’s population. The AOC compiles a master list of prospective jurors for the entire state on a per county basis.

  • CRITICAL CONDITION: Staffing for EMS, 911 remains difficult

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It may not be critical but it is a concern.

    With the staff at the Bullitt County Emergency Medical Services sitting at 15 people below the budgeted level, supervisor Mike Phillips is concerned.

    While six of those open slots are filled by employees who will hopefully return from absences due to things like pregnancy and workers compensation, that still leaves nine positions open.

  • IRON MAN MIKE: Rice runs past hurt, struggles to post personal best time

     CLERMONT -- Recently,  Michael Rice completed his fifth Ironman competition in Louisville. 

    But this time he had more on the line besides just worrying about beating his personal record, even though he did.

    This was the first Ironman competition he was able to complete since his accident in August 2011.

    Three weeks before the 2011 IronMan competition, Rice was doing his last long training ride on his bike on the IronManh course in La Grange when he was hit by a truck.

  • Seniors will get to take trip even if ‘educational’ value questioned

     When is a policy not a policy? When you can find a good reason to bend the rules.

    It was almost a funny situation.

    On Sept. 9, the Bullitt County Public School System held its monthly work session.

    At these sessions, the members have a little extra time in a more informal setting to discuss things such as field trip policies.

    During this particular session, although no formal request had been received, board members were advised that a senior trip for Bullitt East might be on the horizon.

  • NB, BC will battle again

     OKOLONA – For the second time in as many seasons the Girls’ 23rd District Soccer Champion will be from Bullitt County after North Bullitt and Bullitt Central won semi-final round matches on Monday at Moore High School.

    The two rivals were going to meet on Tuesday night in the championship game just as they did last year with North Bullitt winning. Both teams will advance to next week’s Sixth Region Tournament no matter the outcome on Tuesday.

  • TAPP program receives MUW funding

          Funding from Metro United Way continues to ensure a nurse works in the TeenAge Parent Program (TAPP) at Riverview Opportunity Center.

  • Mistake free Eagles shoot down Rockets

     HEBRON ESTATES – Getting a rare stop from the defense with less than five minutes remaining in the game, North Bullitt marched 45 yards for a touchdown with 19 seconds remaining to beat visiting Shelby County 48-42 on Friday.

         In a game in which there was 850 yards of total offense, both coaches knew that the team with the ball last would have the best shot at winning.

  • Coaching situation at Bullitt East has no winners

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The news last week that Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach John Hunt had resigned from that post before ever coaching a game was a decision that was in everyone’s best interest.

         As is well documented now, Hunt was arrested last Tuesday in Mount Washington on charges of domestic violence and endangering the welfare of a minor. He pleaded not guilty the next day and then in a meeting with Bullitt East principal Willie Foster stepped down from the job that he had held since June.
