  • BBB Warns: Avoid Petal Pushers this Mother's Day

        Loved ones who plan to send flowers for Mother’s Day should beware of “petal pushers.”

        These unscrupulous florists place bogus listings in local phone directories.

        When you call the local number listed, or given to you by the operator, you’re unknowingly forwarded to an out-of-town telemarketing company.

        The telemarketer takes your order and credit card information, and then forwards your order to an area florist.

  • Lady Eagles keep winning, but looking for more action

    HEBRON ESTATES - The North Bullitt Lady Eagles have not played a lot of games this spring, but the green and gold keep winning, adding two more victories to the ‘W’ column last week.

    That action left coach Eric Lambert’s team with an impressive 7-2 record, but that is 13 fewer games this season than other teams in the Sixth Region, like Bullitt East, have played.

    Lambert was hoping to make up some of that difference this past weekend, but rain on Friday forced the complete cancellation of a tournament at Henry County High School.

  • Death penalty for St. Clair reversed in Bullitt murder

        FRANKFORT - A man convicted of killing a Bardstown resident in Bullitt County 20 years ago has avoided the death penalty once again.

        And Michael St. Clair will apparently get a new sentencing hearing in Bullitt County and a new trial in his kidnapping conviction in Hardin County after a ruling Thursday by the state Supreme Court.

  • Cases of child abuse too much; HANDS could help

        Child abuse is terrifying, sad, and senseless!

        I believe no one wakes up in the morning and says “Today I am going to hurt my child.”

        Unfortunately, child abuse occurs anyway.

        A definition for child abuse is an injury or pattern of injuries that is not an accident.

        Child abuse includes non-accidental physical harm, abandonment, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse.

  • Those seeking tourist grants will follow a new process

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Organizations seeking monetary assistance from the Shepherdsville-Bullitt County Tourist and Convention Commission may have some new hoops to jump through starting in January.

        But the guidelines should make it easier for all the applicants to complete the process.

  • MW council deadlocks; pay for next mayor to remain same

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - It appears that whoever becomes the next mayor of Mount Washington, the pay level will not be changed.

        During a special meeting Tuesday, the Mount Washington City Council failed to pass an ordinance amending ordinance 08-12, which was approved in 2008 increasing the mayor’s salary from $21,182 to $54,000 beginning January 1, 2011.

        If passed, the amendment would have lowered the next mayor’s salary from $54,000 to $35,000.

  • Lutes silences Lady Cougars in key 6-0 win

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It is doubtful that anyone outside of Shepherdsville knows the Bullitt Central softball program better than Bullitt East’s Jamie Lutes.

    The sophomore pitcher used that knowledge to her best advantage on Thursday, hurling a three-hitter as she and her Charger teammates rolled to an important 6-0 district victory on the new field at Bullitt Central.

  • Budget still in works for state lawmakers

        FRANKFORT - When the Kentucky House of Representatives adopted its two-year budget several weeks ago, my colleagues and I had three main priorities: Streamline government; protect education and our most vulnerable citizens; and kick-start our economy.

  • Rod and Gun Club offers chance for youngsters

        LEBANON JUNCTION - Local youngsters were shooting for unique opportunities to experience fun, safety, and sportsmanship.

        The Bullitt County Rod and Gun Club created a shooting club for area youth interested in sharpening their rifle skills through expert advice and a controlled location.

        The club also hosts a youth shooting competition for the Third District Federation of the League of Kentucky Sportsmen, Inc., which includes Bullitt, Breckinridge, Jefferson, Meade, Oldham, Shelby and Spencer Counties.

  • Chargers bring out the big bats against NB

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Chargers did exactly what a top program should do in a district game.

        The home team, which went to the state semifinals a year ago, started early and the bats never cooled off in a 13-0 district victory over North Bullitt.

        “We really swing the bats well against North Bullitt,” Charger head coach Jeff Bowles said a few days later. “We hit everything they threw up there.”
