  • Drug court honors first class of grads with celebration

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Monday was a day of celebration for six members of the Bullitt County Drug Court.

    It was also a homecoming, of sorts.

    On this first graduation ceremony for participants in the drug court, Family Court judge Elise Givhan Spainhour said she could see the twinkle return to the eyes of the graduates. It was a look that more familiar.

    “Welcome home,” Spainhour told the graduates. “I see people who aren’t where you are today. I see the true you.”

    The fair board members put in unbelievable hours during the actual event - in addition to their regular jobs.

    The inmates at the Bullitt County Detention Center also put in hundreds of hours to help set up and take down the fair. Plus, each day, they were brought there to clean up the facilities.

  • Checks show that system is still working

        The conspiracy theory is still looming in local political circles.

        But through a recanvass and a recount on one precinct, the results of the Bullitt County primary election have not changed.

        Of course, that isn’t to mean that there are some concerns in the community, especially with those who remain suspect of the entire system.

        For the past several elections, Bullitt County has garnered focus, including filming of the tabulations in the clerk’s office.

  • BE's Emberton to continue soccer with Tigers

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - A later bloomer when it came to soccer, the thought of playing at the next level was not something that Bullitt East defender Alex Emberton grew up envisioning.

        In fact, there was a time during his sophomore season in which Emberton stepped away from the game for a time. That seemed to reenergize his batteries and since that time he has been a mainstay in the Bullitt East program. He was a solid defender for the program this past season, the first time the Chargers had been ranked among the top-25 teams in the state.
