  • Budget proposal made as state faces tough future

    Nearly two weeks ago I submitted a two-year budget proposal that included a bold new way to help fund, on a recurring basis, shared priorities like education and jobs, a way that eschewed the tax increases and destructive cuts being espoused by some legislative leaders.

    As I had predicted, my proposal was met with a chorus of angry responses in some quarters, and the posturing and rhetoric was as stiff as it was unhelpful in moving the discussion forward.

    In fact, some legislators declared my budget “dead” even before they examined it.

  • North Bullitt Homecoming: Victory means close shave for NB coaches

        HEBRON ESTATES - Probably the only ones happier for the North Bullitt hoops victory on Saturday than the coaching staff were the wives of the coaches.

        In a sign of solidarity, the North Bullitt coaches refused to shave the past couple of weeks until a victory was secured.

        On Saturday evening, the coaches helped clean up the gym and probably went immediately home to remove the facial hair after a 54-36 win over Washington County.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • Multi Purpose CAA would like to see county expend more funds on agency

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - While thankful for the county’s support, leaders with the Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency would not reject additional funds offered by Bullitt Fiscal Court.

        However, without a contract for services, the county should not be appropriating any money to any agency, according to county attorney Walter A. Sholar.

        Kim Embrey, executive director for the three-county Multi-Purpose CAA, requested the fiscal court increase its current $12,000 appropriation to $15,000.

  • Hot third quarter lifts BC over Prez

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Snow was on the horizon, but the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars took care of business quickly enough on Monday to defeat visiting Presentation 55-51.

        The snow started falling less than two hours after the completion of the game and Bullitt County was out of school for the next two days.

  • Fox Chase must decide if it can afford price of PV police

    FOX CHASE - City Council members must decide the best way to provide service and protection to Fox Chase residents.

    Since 2005 the city has honored an agreement with Pioneer Village allowing that city’s police department to also patrol Fox Chase.

    Due to an increase of 24-hour patrols and other costs, the Pioneer Village City Council recently voted to double Fox Chase’s payment for the services from $6,000 to $12,000.

  • Bullitt Co. H.S. swim program continues to grow

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Three practice as one and one competes as three if you are a member of the Bullitt County high school swimming program.

    For the fourth straight season, the three Bullitt County high schools have combined resources to be able to field swimming teams. The coach is once again Laura Flischel who started the program.

  • Bowles becomes second BE player to sign at John Logan

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A win-win situation. You can’t beat that.

    That is what the Bowles family was saying recently when Bullitt East senior baseball standout Matt Bowles signed a national junior college letter-of-intent with John A. Logan college in Illinois.

    In addition, it was a perfect father-coach-son day for the family as Bullitt East baseball coach Jeff Bowles looked on as his son signed on the dotted line.
