    The existing pool did not open last summer due to a leak and needed repairs to meet the federal Virginia Grahme bill on filtration systems.

  • Lady Chargers start with two wins and one crown

    OKOLONA - The appetizer was just fine for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers last week as a pair of lopsided wins led to a second straight 24th District title.

    But as any good appetizer does, it just whets the appetite for the main course.

    That was the reason that there were no shouts of joy or high-fives after the Lady Chargers dispatched Fairdale 43-28 on Thursday in the championship game at Southern High School. Bullitt East (25-3) has their eye on the prize this week as the red and gold enter Sixth Region play as the favorites.

        Employee Darrell Cruise has some connection with the history museum and knows the need for computers.
