  • Community has giving touch at holiday season

     No matter how people may act at particular moments of any time of the year, Bullitt County is full of caring people.

    Elected officials may fight with one another.

    Members of the public may complain about their elected officials.

    Elected officials may moan and groan about their constituents.

    And agencies may fight with one another.

    But when push comes to shove, Bullitt Countians stick together.

    The holiday season is a great example of agencies all pulling together.

  • NB rallies, but Central prevails on Friday

    Bad idea. Those fans missed the most exciting part of the game as North Bullitt rallied to within 52-47 with 1:12 remaining in the game. After a Bullitt Central free throw, North Bullitt had a solid look at the basket, but junior Chase McKenzie’s three-pointer spun out with a minute left in the game.

    North Bullitt led throughout the last three quarters, but Bullitt Central did get within two points early in the third quarter and it was still a single digit difference in the final minute of the third quarter.
