  • Despite economy, job growth steady

        HILLVIEW - The slow economy has affected the growth in jobs throughout the country.

        Bob Fouts, executive director of the Bullitt County Economic Authority, said he couldn’t make a lot of comments but two major announcements could be close to reality in Hillview.

        Both accidents occurred as pedestrians were crossing the street during hours of low light and were within a mile of one another.

  • U-8 All-Stars stay hot, win title on home field

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A little adversity never hurt anyone. In fact, it might make the Under-8 Mount Washington All-Stars even better as they move forward this summer.

        After blowing through the first three games of the District 10 Cal Ripken Tournament on their home field, the Mount Washington All-Stars found themselves down 4-0 two innings into Wednesday’s championship game against Fern Creek Orange. After a quick rally that saw them move ahead 6-4, Mount Washington was later down 7-6.

  • Houdini would have been proud of U-10 Stars' win

        FERN CREEK - Houdini himself could not have come up with a greater escape than the Under-10 Mount Washington All-Stars did on Saturday night in the championship game of the District 10 Tournament at Fern Creek Park.

        The great magician would put himself in great peril and then extricate himself from the danger, much to the joy of his fans.

        The Under-10 All-Stars did that and more, pulling out a 9-8 victory in an extra inning game.

  • Volunteer tutors sought for reading program

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Parents and grandparents typically sit in line up to an hour before their youngster is dismissed from school.

        But if adults have a desire to be at school that early to ensure prompt pickup of their student, maybe they would be willing to spend those minutes in the school helping a struggling reader.

        That is just one of many ideas Robin Ferrel is investigating as a VISTA volunteer who is assisting Judy Cederholm with the Community Partners for Reading program.
