  • Little mistakes cost Eagles a chance at win

    LOUISVILLE - A year ago, the North Bullitt Eagles lost a lot of basketball games. For the most part, they were not very competitive in those contests.

    Fast forward a year and the Eagles are still having trouble winning games. The good news is that the green and gold are very competitive.

  • Special permit for tourism-related operations studied

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The business seeing the biggest growth in Bullitt County over the past couple of years has been wineries.

    But could their future be in danger without proper zoning changes?
