Today's News

  • 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.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • TD at 1:43 lifts Dolphins past Colts

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- With 2:23 remaining in Saturday championship game of the Little Bullitts Division, the Pleasant Grove Dolphins were just about out of bullets against the Mount Washington Colts.

  • Top players and teams ready to scrimmage at BE Saturday

  • Man arrested on RV thefts in area

    HILLVIEW - When Teddy D. Stinson attended a recreational vehicle show in Louisville, he must have liked what he saw.

    But the Crestwood resident wasn’t apparently looking at the vehicles. He was looking at the flat screen televisions inside.

    The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department, with the assistance of the U.S. Marshal’s Service, Louisville Metro Police, the Kentucky State Police and the Hillview Police Department, has charged Stinson with multiple counts of theft by unlawful taking.
