  • Guthrie honors feats at Bernheim

    Those in the Bullitt County area understand the importance Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest plays in education. But anyone who reads the Congressional Record in Washington, D.C., will forever understand its importance.

    With its Visitors Center being recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for the Lifecycle Building Challenge Award, U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie read the accomplishments into the Congressional Record on Oct. 15, 2009.

    While a couple of provisions from the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 were implemented in August, more reform is in the near future.

    Aimed at helping struggling families in the tough economy, the Credit CARD Act was signed into law in May.

    Over the next year, more provisions will be phased in and change the way companies market, manage and issue credit cards.

  • Despite woes, time is right to give thanks

    There is no doubt that many in our community and many in the country are suffering.

    Jobs have been lost. Hours have been cut. Wages are going down.

    The war continues to be waged. The county’s support in the president and the Congress has waned.

    Gas prices fell but have now risen. Unemployment numbers are up.

    Despite all the nay-saying, this is still the best country in the world to reside.

    Housing starts are up. The stock market is rebounding. Roadways and other projects are being built under the stimulus funding.

  • Veterans are honored in many ways

    There is no way to ever say enough about those who have fought in war to protect our country.

    There is never any way to express in words the gratitude that we should feel about those who have served in the military - in any way.

    Veterans Day is held each November.

    Particularly since Sept. 11, 2001, it is gratifying to see the growth of ceremonies held to honor the veterans.

    In Bullitt County, there are many more schools hosting events to honor veterans and this is a great message to send.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • Quick Start - 47 first half points fuel Cougars

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Exploding for 47 points in the first half, the Bullitt Central Cougars opened the 2009-10 season with a bang on Monday as they rolled past visiting Evangel 77-62.

    Bullitt Central led 22-16 after the first quarter and with the first ten points of the second frame took control of the opening game of the season for both teams. The maroon and gray led by 15 points at halftime and by as many as 16 in the second half. Evangel made a late surge to get within nine points late in the game, but they could get no closer.

  • Lady Eagles set to start a new era in hoops

    HEBRON ESTATES - All veteran basketball coaches have their ‘best of times; worst of times’ stories. It comes with the territory.

    For first-year North Bullitt Lady Eagle coach Amber Courtney, she might well start out filling the ‘worst of times’ category first.

    The former Bullitt Central player (Amber Coy) inherits a program almost void of upperclassman. In fact, the Lady Eagles won’t just count on middle school age girls, but they will start eighth-graders this season. The varsity roster even includes a seventh-grader and a sixth-grader.

  • Cougars will be bombs away with five-guard play

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - On a varsity high school basketball team with only two seniors and one junior, fans might be worried about a lack of experience at the start of the season.

    Not the case with the Bullitt Central Cougars. Veteran head coach Joe Pat Lee has a lot of worries heading into the 2009-10 season, but his team does have quite a bit of experience.

  • Holiday tradition has own spin in Bullitt

    SHEPHERDSVILLE — There’s no need to travel to Louisville to experience the heartwarming and spooky tale of “A Christmas Carol” this holiday season as the Bullitt County Theatre Company has prepared its special production of the familiar play scheduled to begin this week.

    The play is slated to start Friday and will include a couple of special twists.

    The work, originally wrote by Charles Dickens, was adapted and is being directed by BCTC’s producing artist director Bill Breuer.

  • Defense powers Lady Chargers past PRP

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - On a night when the offense struggled mightily, both from the field and at the foul line, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers let their defense do the talking in a 58-33 victory over visiting Pleasure Ridge Park on Tuesday in the first game of the 2009-10 season.

    The Lady Chargers allowed just five points in the first quarter and the red and gold led 27-14 at halftime before coasting to the easy victory.
