    BBB Hot Topics May 2010

    Flood Repairs - Property owners in need of repairs after the recent floods should carefully check out companies before hiring them. A home repair rip-off artist may overcharge, perform shoddy work, or skip town without finishing your job. BBB Tips: Deal with licensed and insured contractors only, take your time signing a contract, resist hiring a contractor who asks you to pay for the entire job up front, and check with the BBB to see if complaints have been filed against the contractor.

  • Bowles' one-hitter beats state's top team

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Battling through the program’s first four-game losing skid since 2007, the last team that the Bullitt East Chargers needed to see next would be Lexington Catholic, the state’s top-ranked team and the defending state champions.

        No problem. Senior pitcher Matt Bowles was masterful on Saturday, allowing just one hit in the final game of the ValuMarket Baseball Challenge. Still, the Chargers did not secure the win until the bottom of the eighth inning with a run on a bases loaded single by Josh Whitmer.

  • BE's Duvall lowers school mark in 110s

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt East recently competed in the Oldham County Sundown Invitational, capturing four first-place finishes.

        One of those victories came from sophomore Jacob Duvall who continued to lower the school record with a time of 15.74 in the 110-meter high hurdles. Duvall was also fifth in the 300-meter low hurdles.

  • Hillview honors Raymer family

        In honor of his passing, city officials presented a special recognition to Raymer’s wife, Nonie, and daughters, Nina and Joy.

        “He was a very good person,” said mayor Jim Eadens.

  • Accident victim has powerful message

    HEBRON ESTATES - The words were, at times, a bit difficult to understand.

    But the message delivered by Brandon Silveria was crystal clear.

    “You have to take responsibility for the choices you make,” said Brandon Silveria.

    A star athlete who had a rowing scholarship to Boston College awaiting him made a decision close to his California home that would change his life, and the lives of others, forever.

    Instead of rowing, playing football or surfing, Brandon is taking his message to high school students across the country.

  • Long wait does pay off for BE's doubles team

        FRANKFORT - A middle of the season decision to combine his number two singles player with his top foreign exchange student paid dividends for Bullitt East boys’ tennis coach Dustin Armstrong last week as the pair became the first local boys’ entry to reach the state tournament since Bullitt County teams were shifted to the Eighth Region five years ago.

  • Motorcycle Safety Month during May

        Governor Beshear has designated May as Motorcycle Awareness Month in Kentucky.

        Warm weather is finally here and the motorcycles are once again sharing the highways with you.

        You may not know but the greatest hazard a motorcyclist meets is the drivers of other vehicles.

        Seventy-five percent of motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle such as a car or truck.

        Many drivers claim they did not see the motorcycle.

  • Tai Chi, bird walk coming to Bernheim Forest

        CLERMONT - Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest welcomes returning Grandmaster M. O. Serikali, Ph.D., for another 10 week course of Tai Chi Chuan beginning May 27.

  • BE competes with Ballard; BC finishes season on fire

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - With wins in seven of the last nine games of the regular season, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars got hot and stayed hot after starting the season 2-14.

        Some improvement is certainly expected of a team without any seniors and only a handful of juniors. Still, the final stretch of going 12-7 was as much as anyone could expect.
