  • Smith set to go out in style during his final MMA bout

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - In what could be the final fight in a long career, Billy Smith wanted to bring something back to his hometown.
        On Saturday, Jan. 8, All American MMA will bring a 15-bout card to the Shepherdsville City Government Center.
        The program will, in part, be a fund-raiser for the Crusade for Children and Crimes Against Children.

  • Fun in the sun, but no wins for BC

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - There was plenty of fun and sun for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars just before Christmas as they headed to Florida for the KSA Classic at Walt Disney World.
        The only thing missing were some victories. The Lady Cougars lost three straight games in the eight-team event against teams from the east coast.
        Unfortunately, because of limited manpower, Bullitt Central head coach Bryan Bates could not collect very many statistics. In fact, he didn’t even have complete scoring for his own team.

  • Slow start dooms BE late in KOB

        FAIRDALE - Bullitt East’s pre-Christmas trek through some of the best teams in the state continued even in the consolation bracket of the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Tournament at Fairdale High School.
        After losing to Eastern, the state’s second-ranked team, in the first round of the event, Charger head coach Troy Barr had one goal - win two games in the small gym and get back to the big room for the final day of the tournament.
        Mission accomplished.

  • Holiday hoops events have a clear hierarchy

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - What can you say about a tournament where you lose the first game of the event to the second ranked team in Kentucky to fall into the consolation bracket?
        Once you get there, you face two more teams ranked among the top five teams coming into the season by the state’s coaches.
        You just say ‘wow’ and walk away happy with a 2-2 record.

  • Nichols firefighters practice rescue work on old school bus

        NICHOLS - Western Bullitt County has more hills and curvy, steep roads than most of the area, some accessed by Bullitt County Public Schools buses.
        In an attempt for better preparation in the event of an emergency, Nichols Fire Department routinely practices school bus emergency rescue situations.
        Nichols training officer Dannye Allen said firefighters practice on older buses provided by BCPS.

  • Exiting officials deserve praise for their efforts to serve public

        There’s just a few days left before the calendar turns its next page.
        When January arrives, Bullitt County will lose some good public servants. This happens every election cycle.
        The names may change but their devotion to the community doesn’t.
        At the county level, Thomas Kappel will be leaving as coroner, an office he has served in since the early 1980s. It is a position that doesn’t get a lot of publicity    unless some really bad crimes occur.
