  • Cases of child abuse too much; HANDS could help

        Child abuse is terrifying, sad, and senseless!

        I believe no one wakes up in the morning and says “Today I am going to hurt my child.”

        Unfortunately, child abuse occurs anyway.

        A definition for child abuse is an injury or pattern of injuries that is not an accident.

        Child abuse includes non-accidental physical harm, abandonment, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse.

  • Those seeking tourist grants will follow a new process

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Organizations seeking monetary assistance from the Shepherdsville-Bullitt County Tourist and Convention Commission may have some new hoops to jump through starting in January.

  • MW council deadlocks; pay for next mayor to remain same

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - It appears that whoever becomes the next mayor of Mount Washington, the pay level will not be changed.

        During a special meeting Tuesday, the Mount Washington City Council failed to pass an ordinance amending ordinance 08-12, which was approved in 2008 increasing the mayor’s salary from $21,182 to $54,000 beginning January 1, 2011.

        If passed, the amendment would have lowered the next mayor’s salary from $54,000 to $35,000.

  • Lutes silences Lady Cougars in key 6-0 win

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It is doubtful that anyone outside of Shepherdsville knows the Bullitt Central softball program better than Bullitt East’s Jamie Lutes.

  • Rod and Gun Club offers chance for youngsters

        LEBANON JUNCTION - Local youngsters were shooting for unique opportunities to experience fun, safety, and sportsmanship.

        The club also hosts a youth shooting competition for the Third District Federation of the League of Kentucky Sportsmen, Inc., which includes Bullitt, Breckinridge, Jefferson, Meade, Oldham, Shelby and Spencer Counties.

  • Chargers bring out the big bats against NB

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers did exactly what a top program should do in a district game.

        The home team, which went to the state semifinals a year ago, started early and the bats never cooled off in a 13-0 district victory over North Bullitt.

        “We really swing the bats well against North Bullitt,” Charger head coach Jeff Bowles said a few days later. “We hit everything they threw up there.”

  • Taking one for the team

    To bring awareness to child abuse prevention month, the Bullitt County CASA program had a festival in Shepherdsville City Park.

    Dignitaries had the opportunity to take a pie in the face, including Bullitt County Public Schools superintendent Keith Davis.

    The event was designed as a celebration for children, with a ballon bounce, games and free items.

    Hot dogs and free nachos were available, along with a free concert by Edgewood. Cheer-Bling performed various cheerleading and dance numbers.
