  • Eagles produce a solid half in play-off loss to Warriors

        LOUISVILLE - A coach wants his team to play its best ball at the end of the season in the post-season.

        North Bullitt football coach Brett Newton got his wish on Friday night - at least for a half.

        But in the end, it was the top-seeded Western Warriors who would advance to a Class 4 meeting on Friday with the Fairdale Bulldogs.

        Avenging a loss last season to the Eagles, Western overcame an early 8-0 deficit to defeat North Bullitt 24-8.

  • Lebanon Junction water customers may pay bigger deposit

    LEBANON JUNCTION — City residents are one step closer to paying a higher water deposit after the Lebanon Junction City Council heard the first reading of an ordinance last Monday that would increase the current fee $45.

    The ordinance calls for the current deposit to be raised from $80 to $125 and would still require a $5 non-refundable application fee. Customers will receive their deposits back after service is discontinued if no outstanding balance is due the city.

  • Get all the facts and then decide

    If it was the fourth quarter of a football game and the outcome was decided, they might say that the verbal sparring being done by officials in Mount Washington is a bit chippy.

    It seems that the issue could be the weather and things have gotten a bit edgy.

    Forget who is at fault, the voters of Mount Washington didn’t put officials in office to jab at one another.

    We’ve seen that when fiscal court works as a team, things get done.

    In Mount Washington, the same must happen.

  • Magical season ends for Cougars

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - There is never a good time to play a bad football game.

    On Friday, the Bullitt Central Cougars picked the worst possible time to lay the proverbial ‘egg’ - the first round of the Class 5-A play-offs. Unable to do anything right, the second-seeded Cougars dropped a 63-13 decision at home to third-seeded Jeffersontown.

    The setback ended the season for the Cougars with an 8-3 record. It was the second straight season that Bullitt Central has posted that final number.

  • More to story than simply looking at federal No Child Left Behind act

    There are two sides to every coin.

    When it comes to assessment results, there is both good news and bad news.

    We are not a school district that is afraid to confront the brutal facts and I will outline some of them below.  But, the news from our assessment results is mostly good news and we need to acknowledge and celebrate that fact.

    I hear from fellow superintendents all over the state that their goal is to be a top 10 ranked school district.

  • Committee will recommend Hillview sale of alcohol by the drink

    HILLVIEW -- A Hillview committee set up to study the possible sale of alcohol on Sunday is ready to make its recommendation.

    Councilmembers Kim Whitlock, Greg Burton and Randall Hill were unanimous in their opinions toward allowing restaurants to sell alcohol on Sunday, under the proper conditions.

    The Hillview City Council could vote on the ordinance by the end of the year or early in 2010.

    Burton said if the city is going to enact such an ordinance, it should be firm yet user friendly.

  • Future of LJ pool could be in jeopardy

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Already looking ahead to next summer, Bullitt County parks director Kendall Grant hopes to have repairs done so that at least three of the swimming pools will be ready when the season begins next May.

    However, it is doubtful that the Lebanon Junction pool would be open in the near future.

    After only two pools were opened late this summer due to mandatory improvements required under the federal Virginia Graeme bill, Grant wanted to get a head start on 2010.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - In a battle between the two best teams in the league all season at the ‘B’ Division level, the Overdale Chiefs pulled out a stunning reversal of the regular season meeting as they beat the Maryville Patriots 28-19.

  • Quick start fuels Overdale past Maryville for PW title

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- If in doubt give the ball to number 8.

    That philosophy worked just fine for the Overdale Chiefs on Saturday as the team used a quick start to beat the Maryville Patriots 12-8 in the championship game of the PeeWee Division.

    Number 8 for the Chiefs is Mario Convenuto and he rushed for 118 yards and scored both of the touchdowns for Overdale. He also led the team with nine tackles.
