  • Apathy or laziness? Which is really appropriate in local voting, filings

  • Fox takes over Lady Eagle program that is rebuilding

        HEBRON ESTATES - In recent seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles have fielded relatively strong soccer teams.

        What the green and gold haven’t been able to do is find consistency in the coaching ranks. Melissa Fox is the new head coach, becoming the fourth different person to handle those duties over the past five years. The one positive is that Fox was the assistant coach last season so she has worked with many of the players on the team this fall.

  • Hunters Hollow tax rate stays same; revenue will decrease

    HUNTERS HOLLOW - New tax rates will bring a slight increase in taxes for Hunters Hollow residents, but the city itself will not accumulate as much revenue.

    The 2010 ad valorem tax rates on real and personal property, along with public service companies, were established by the city commission during its August meeting.

    The real property tax rate remained at 10.45 cents for every $100, the same rate as 2009.

  • Rest rooms may be too nice to use by visitors

        Have you ever told stories about the messiest restroom you’ve ever visited?

        What about telling others about the best public restroom you’ve ever seen?

        Leave it to the internet.

        Cintas Corporation, based in Cincinnati, has sponsored a contest the past eight years to honor businesses across America that place high value on hygiene and exceptional style.

  • Conway pledges to work hard in race for U.S. Senate seat

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Jack Conway is in a sprint race. With less than 80 days until the general election, Conway is running scared.

        But he’s not scared because of who is following him. The state attorney general is scared of what might happen if he doesn’t win the race for U.S. Senate.

        Conway was one of the featured speakers during the annual FDR dinner hosted by the Bullitt County Democratic Party.

  • State furloughs will affect local office services

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Kevin Mooney’s office is not a state agency.

    The residents who visit the county clerk’s office to get a motor vehicle registration renewal are not looking to have any dealings with the commonwealth of Kentucky.

    Those who visit Layne Abell’s office in the judicial center to renew their driver’s license are not concerned whether the facility is governed by the executive, judicial or legislative branch of state government.

  • Big Bang Theory lifts Chargers past Bardstown

        RADCLIFF - The Bullitt East Charges opened and closed the opening game of the 2010 season with a bang on Saturday as the red and gold slipped past Bardstown 27-14 in the second game of the Joe Jaggers Classic at North Hardin High School.

        It was the second straight season that Bullitt East has opened with a win in this event. A year ago, the Chargers rolled past Lexington Paul Dunbar 37-7 en route to a 4-7 season.

  • Federal grant could help MW with utility costs

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A $125,000 Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant recently awarded to the city by the U.S. Department of Energy could help local residents conserve a lot more than electricity.

    Grant writer and administrator Bryan Kirby of Community and Economic Development Associates explained that $45,000 of the grant would pay for around 300 home and small business energy audits to show people how to save energy and money.

    “Basically these audits will show people how to get the biggest bang for their buck,“ Kirby said.
