  • OT works just fine for Lady Cougars

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It took an overtime to do it, but the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars finally picked up the one win they had to have in December as they slipped past visiting Southern 64-56 on Tuesday.

    The Lady Trojans are a vastly improved team over the past few seasons and they also much more athletic. They gave Bullitt Central fits at times on Tuesday and actually had a chance to win at the end of regulation time only to have a lane violation erase a made free throw with :12.3 to play.

  • Few surprises about underage drinking

    How much do you know about underage drinking?

    I just took a web quiz conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) that tests people’s knowledge about underage drinking and I was surprised to find that many people who take the quiz don’t score so well.

    The quiz questions come from research sponsored by member agencies of the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Prevention of Underage Drinking.

    The quiz is intended to dispel myths and stimulate action to prevent and reduce underage alcohol use.

  • Non-partisan deadlines different for different situations

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - When the first filing deadline arrives on Tuesday, Jan. 26, not everyone will necessarily have to file at that time.

    However, it depends on where you live and what office you are running for in 2010.

    For the first time, the city of Mount Washington offices for mayor and city council will be non-partisan.

    Bullitt County election officials said that the filing deadline for these offices would be on Aug. 10.

    In the city of Lebanon Junction, the mayor and city council are also non-partisan; however, they will have a different filing deadline.

  • Scottish Rite honors top mason, citizen for 2009

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - They have both promoted their community for years.

    And both have been involved in making Bullitt County a better place to live and work.

    The Bullitt County Scottish Rite Club honored Elaine Wilson and James Ron Sexton for their contributions during the organization’s annual awards banquet.

    Rodney Burress, Scottish Rite trustee and newly-installed chaplain for the next year, said Wilson deeply deserved the honor as the Outstanding Citizen.

  • Now what will Shepherdsville do?

    Wow...now what do you do if you serve on the Shepherdsville City Council?

    You approved a totally unbinding advisory ballot to get the pulse of the community on the sale of alcoholic beverages on Sunday in places that serve at least 70 percent in food items.

    Everyone stated on more than one occasion that the turnout of the vote held on Dec. 3-4 meant nothing in terms of forcing the council to do anything.

    That point has been made very clear.

    But it begs to now ask the question - what do you do now?

    After an emotionally difficult childhood and adolescence, Meers earned his GED (General Educational Development) credential in the JAG Program with Bullitt County Adult and Community Education in March 2009.
