        The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Highway District 5 reports the following roadwork scheduled in Bullitt County for the week of August 2:

    Bullitt County:

    Interstate 65:  Lane closures and delays are possible in both directions between the KY 61 underpass and the Bullitt/Jefferson County line (mile points 118.5 and 123.1) due to concrete pavement repairs.  The roadway may be reduced to one lane weeknights Monday – Friday from 9:00 p.m. in the evening until 5:00 a.m. the following morning.

  • Blue Lick 15s advance with district crown

        OKOLONA - This wasn’t a group of high school players who were on the same team or an AAU squad which had played together for years.

        Instead, it was a team of players who attended different high schools and played for various rec ball teams at Blue Lick.

        When coach David Hayes got the team assembled four weeks ago, he really wasn’t sure how well the Blue Lick 15-year-old All-Star team would do.

        But he never allowed any doubt to be expressed.

  • Board reverses decision on change in districts

        CEDAR GROVE - It looks as if David Cross won’t have to reorder those campaign signs after all.

        Reversing its June decision, the Bullitt County Public School Board voted to return to the drawing board and not immediately change the five voting districts.

        In June, the board voted to alter the maps to bring the voting population more in line. However, that decision was reversed after learning that Cross had already filed to run in the Third District.

  • Under-12 state tourney ends short of expectations

    LOUISVILLE - The Under-12 Cal Ripken West Kentucky State Tournament had a pair of Bullitt County teams competing last week at the Germantown Recreation Complex in Louisville.

    Unfortunately, the event did not end the way either the Mount Washington or Blue Lick All-Stars had envisioned.

    After opening with a pair of wins to start the tournament and reaching the winner’s bracket final, Mount Washington struck out in two straight games over the weekend, losing to Barren County and then Jeffersontown to finish third in the 8-team event.

  • MW races fail to draw anticipated excitement

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Those wishing to have their names on the fall ballot have just one more day to make a trip to the county clerk’s office.

        The filing deadline is Aug. 10 at 4 p.m. in the county clerk’s office    in a number of races which had registration deadlines in the fall.

        What many expected to be a large field of candidates in Mount Washington hasn’t proven to be correct.

  • Improved U-11 All-Stars fall in tough fashion

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A week after going 0-2 in the combined District 10/11 Tournament on their home field, the Under-11 Mount Washington All-Stars made a remarkable recovery last week in the West Kentucky State Tournament that the league hosted.

    Mount Washington won two early games to reach the winner’s bracket championship game of the 7-team event. At that point they met an old rival, Jeffersontown, the team that had won the District Tournament a week earlier. This time, Jeffersontown won again, 14-3.

        LOUISVILLE - Between 10,000 and 15,000 street rods, classics and muscle cars will be on hand at the Kentucky Exposition Center within the next week as the National Street Rod Association® presents its 41st Annual Street Rod Nationals® Plus.

        The dates for the city’s largest  vintage car show will be August 5-8.

  • Success continues for U-12 group

        HIGHVIEW - It took just 20 hours for the Under-12 Mount Washington All-Stars to start what they hope is a long journey this summer in Cal Ripken Tournament action.

        The flagship group of kids for the league in recent years, this was the fourth summer age group district title in five seasons for this core group of players and coaches.

  • Blue Lick U-12 All-Stars win district; head to West State next

    FAIRDALE - Many of the members of the Blue Lick 12-year-old All-Star hadn’t participated in post-season play for a couple of years.

    As 11 year olds, vacations and commitments to football didn’t allow enough players to be available to field an all-star team.

    This year, the Blue Lick All-Stars made up for last year’s disappointment in a big way. The squad is heading to the West Kentucky state tournament this week at Germantown as district champs.

    Blue Lick swept through the district tournament with three straight victories.
