  • Scrap metal theft spotlights growing problem recently in Mount Washington

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Scrap metal thefts have become all too common in Mount Washington. In the past three months there have been five occasions when scrap metal was reported stolen.

        The Mount Washington Police Department added one more to the list this week.

        On Wednesday morning roughly $500 worth of scrap aluminum was stolen from a Stout Lane resident, off Highway 31E.

  • County judge hopefuls present their platforms

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - It wasn’t Fancy Farm but it was a kickoff to the spring primary season.

        The Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce hosted the first of two candidates’ forums. While the format only allowed candidates for county judge/executive seven minutes to speak, there were some fiery moments on Thursday.

        The Republican primary will feature incumbent Melanie Roberts and her former deputy judge Depp Rasner.

        Rasner took the gloves off early in his speech to chamber members.

  • Butler was a tough first foe for the Lady Eagles

        HEBRON ESTATES - Big games during the first week of the regular season seldom turn out as expected and even more so end up not having any bearing on what can happen when the post-season rolls around ten weeks later.

        That will hopefully be the case for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles as they opened the 2010 season with a 7-2 loss to Butler. A year ago, the two teams played a 1-0 game that Butler won in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament.

  • Week one was a learning experience for Chargers

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Nobody expected the Bullitt East Chargers to pick up exactly where they left off last season, despite being the sixth-ranked team in the state in the pre-season coaches’ poll.

        That was good, because the first week of the season proved to be a challenge for the defending Sixth Region and Semi-State champions as they could only post a 3-3 record. There was some good news in those results and some very frustrating points.

  • Strange to speak at state historical meeting

    FRANKFORT - Bullitt County will once again have a moment of positive statewide recognition on April 10, 2010, when David Strange will be the guest speaker at the Kentucky Historical Society meeting in Frankfort.

  • House members get budget to the Senate

    FRANKFORTee"After nearly two months of work, and in the face of a $1.2 billion deficit, the Kentucky House of Representatives voted this past week for a two-year budget that streamlines state government while investing in the Commonwealth.

    Legislators have known for months that the budget would be difficult to write, given the nation’s worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

  • Graduation dates set for local high schools

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – Old Man Winter was particularly grumpy this year and that is always bad news for the Bullitt County School District.

        The snowy and icy weather in early 2010 that caused several school day cancellations has pushed students’ last day to June 1 – and that date will remain only if no more days are cancelled.

        Members of the Board of Education voted recently to approve June 5 as the graduation date for Bullitt Central, Bullitt East and North Bullitt High Schools.

  • County approves bid to get BCHS pool prepared

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The county swimming pool next to Bullitt Central High School should be ready to go when the season starts in late May.

        Bullitt Fiscal Court, with the assistance of the YMCA of Bullitt County, agreed to a bid of Chester Pools of New Albany, Ind., to bring the facility into federal compliance.

        The project would include the removal of the old diving boards and leveling off of the pool’s bottom. The work would also fix the infiltration system to meet the federal safety standards.
