  • Eagles struggle in short week

     HEBRON ESTATES – It wasn’t the best of weeks for the North Bullitt Eagles.

    In fact, head coach Brian Wise said the game on Wednesday against LaRue County resulted in one of those annual heart-to-heart talks with his players.

    Still, with two weeks to go in the regular season, Wise is looking for a bounce-back week as the Eagles face a tough five-game stretch, including three at Bullitt East this Friday and Saturday.

  • Central rallies past Central for 10-5 baseball win

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – High School baseball teams in Kentucky are allowed to play up to 36 games in the regular season.

    Last week, Bullitt East was fortunate to play one game.

    Welcome to spring in Kentucky. Mother Nature was the clear-cut winner last week as heavy rain made play impossible on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    So, Bullitt Central head coach G.J. Moore was glad that his team did get one complete game in during the week. On Tuesday, the maroon and gray rallied from a fourth inning hole to defeat visiting Louisville Central 10-5.

  • Pitch committee does enough as East beats CAL

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Veteran Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles will be the first to say that his team has a wealth of good pitchers.

  • Kentucky Derby... Little Flock Style

     An entire festival celebrated in one event, and all for a good cause. Little Flock Christian Academy hosted a parade in the church parking lot, centering around the events of the annual Kentucky Derby Festival.

  • Historic number of major resurfacing projects slated

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Bullitt County motorists will see a lot of roadwork occurring over the next year.

    Bullock was in Shepherdsville last week to outline plans for spending over $1.4 million in rural secondary road projects.

  • Man indicted for murder in death of pedestrian

     HILLVIEW — A man has been indicted for the March 4 murder of a pedestrian.

    Bradley Troy Cannon, 38, of Louisville, has been indicted by the Bullitt County Grand Jury on four charges relating to the death of Robert Pace.

    The grand jury issued the following charges:

    *Murder, which is a Class A felony that is punishable by 20 years to life in prison

    *Tampering with physical evidence, which is a Class D felony punishable by 1-5 years in prison

    *Wanton endangerment, also a Class D felony

  • Guilty or not, indictments cause county great harm

     There is always that disclaimer on any indictment -- such charge does not mean guilt or innocence. It only means that a certain number of grand jurors felt there was enough evidence to move forward with a criminal trial.

    While an indictment does not mean guilt or innocence, it can bring shame.

    It can obviously bring shame to the individual indicted. Even if cleared of the allegations, the cloud is never totally lifted.

    It can also bring shame to a community.
