  • Budget proposal will get scrutiny as it truly should

        There is one guarantee in Bullitt County - officials will hammer out a budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year, no matter the differences.

        Unlike our folks in Frankfort, there won’t be a power struggle at the top of the food chain. An agreement will be  worked out locally.

        Of course, there will be an agreement worked out in Frankfort. It might just cost the people of Kentucky $64,000 a day until it gets done.

  • North gets big win over ranked Butler

        HEBRON ESTATES - Coach Brian Wise had seen his North Bullitt Eagles play some very good teams during the season. Some of the outcomes were very close.

        But, the coach in his fourth year as skipper of the Eagles was looking for that signature victory.

        On Thursday, it happened.

  • National Day of Prayer

    The largest crowd to attend the National Day of Prayer observance gathered Thursday at Shepherdsville City Park.

    A variety of local ministers talked to a crowd of over 350 people and led prayers for various groups.

    Ashley Bowman read her children’s prayer. Pastor Jim Bob Outland of Bullitt Lick Baptist blessed the Bible. Jeanette Allen got the day started with her ram’s horn.

    The National Day of Prayer takes place each year on May 6.

  • Flood leads to real big catch

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Matthew Hatfield found a positive from the recent flooding along the Salt River.

        A 68-pound positive.

        Hatfield caught a large catfish while fishing at the Shepherdsville City Park Monday evening. The fish was officially weighed at Fischer’s Sporting Goods.

        “I never would’ve dreamed something that big would come out of the Salt River,” Hatfield said.

  • Martial arts academy continues tradition by helping boys, girls

        HILLVIEW - Corbin Huff loved Tae Kwon Do.  He started taking lessons as a child.  In 1993 he began teaching Tae Kwon Do to blind students at the University of Louisville and in May of 1993 Master Corbin and his students at U of L were featured in the magazine, Karate Profile.

  • Late season hitting slump reversing early BC edge

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A late season batting funk led to a pair of losses last week for the Bullitt Central Cougars.

        During one four game stretch early in the season the Cougars had at least 11 hits in each game. Last week the team had ten hits in losses to Seneca and Oldham County.

        That action left coach Tommy Alvey’s team with an 8-14 mark heading into the last week of the regular season.

  • All eligible must receive benefit of hazardous duty retirement

        When you are young, the only thing that matters in the paycheck is the bottom line.

        As you get a little older, benefits such as insurance, retirement and savings means a little more.

        When the state of Kentucky began making local governments decide whether to place eligible employees in the hazardous duty retirement program, it gave officials options they really didn’t need to have.

  • Knight earns top regional tennis seed; BE has four seeds

    FRANKFORT - When the Eighth Region Tennis Tournaments get underway this week at Western Hills and Franklin County High Schools, Bullitt East will be well represented with four seeded entries in the girls’ and boys’ events.

    Leading the way will be Lady Charger junior Makaela Knight who earned the number one seed on the girls’ side after going undefeated during the regular season. She capped off the season last week with a win over Katie Howard of Western Hills High School who got the number two seed.

  • Central posts 4-1 week; East battles tough foes

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - On a team with no seniors and just a handful of juniors, Bullitt Central softball coach Buddy Gallemore expected his team to get better as the season progressed.

        That seems to be just the scenario as the Lady Cougars posted a second straight winning week that was capped with a fifth-place finish in the Gaslight Festival Tournament at Jeffersontown High School over the weekend.

  • Eagles hang on to beat Southern 9-7

        HEBRON ESTATES - The game really had little bearing on the post-season for either team, but don’t tell that to the players from North Bullitt or Southern.

        More than any other sport between the two neighbors, the baseball players always look at this as one of the biggest games of the season. That is because of the lifetime of rivalries the players have developed growing up in the Blue Lick and Okolona Youth League programs.
