  • Walls in jailer's race to aid community

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - When incumbent jailer Danny Fackler decided he would retire at year’s end and not run for re-election, some candidates saw it as an opportunity.

    Doug Walls was one of those candidates.

    Although he was considering a run for the office of sheriff, Walls said he had many calls encouraging him to re-think his position.

    And he did.

    Walls, 51, said his goal all along was to serve the community and the jailer’s position is an important one in the county.

  • BEHS band hits high notes

    MOUNT WASHINGTON " The Bullitt East Marching Band made history during an uncertain time this year.

    The band was the smallest on record with 37 participants and had to adjust to being led by a new director, Jonah Sawyers.

    Maybe it was that the students felt like underdogs, or perhaps it was the enthusiasm of a new, young director, but the BEHS Marching Chargers made it to the state semi-final competition Nov. 7 for the first time in Bullitt East’s history.

  • First quarterly night-time forum set for county

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - If you have a question for county leaders and just can’t attend a regular fiscal court meeting, your opportunity is awaiting.

        Instead of scheduling regular meetings for nighttime hours, Bullitt Fiscal Court agreed to have a quarterly gathering of elected officials.

        And department heads could also be present to answer questions.

  • Lady Cougars get the 'W' against quickly improving Lady Eagles

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Knocking down nine three-pointers in the first half, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars were able to keep North Bullitt at a safe distance on Friday in the second meeting of the season between the two rivals.

    Still, after Bullitt Central won 77-62, both coaches had reason to smile.

  • Local football players honored

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The two best players in Bullitt County football this season both earned more post-season honors recently when they were part of the statewide Coaches’ All-State Teams in voting conducted by the state’s largest newspaper.

    Bullitt East senior lineman Mason Kelly, at 6-4, 311 pounds was voted to the third-team All-State Honor Roll after a season in which he anchored both the offensive and defensive lines for the Chargers.

  • 2010 starts ever so slowly for local programs

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The first night of the regular season in 2010 turned out to be a long one for four of the area basketball programs as the teams at both Bullitt Central and North Bullitt got the new year off on the wrong foot with losses.

    The most frustrating of the losses was a 59-53 loss for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars in a showdown with Fairdale. The Lady Cougars had blitzed the Lady Bulldogs 49-32 back on Dec. 20 in the second round of the Doss Holiday Tournament.

  • Developing budget first priority of legislators

    FRANKFORT ee" As you read this, the 2010 General Assembly Session has convened.

    It will be a 60-day session in which our first priority will be developing a budget under serious financial constraints.

    We will also be looking at pro-life legislation, legislative retirement reform, government transparency, allowing the people to decide on whether they would like to expand gambling, as well as other issues.

    It promises to be a busy session.

    We expect a budget shortfall of about $1 billion.

  • Perfect game, imperfect finish for Chargers

    LOUISVILLE - The final 16 seconds ruined what could have been a signature victory for the Bullitt East Chargers on Tuesday in an opening round game of the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament at Bellarmine University.

    Instead, it was bitter heartbreak for the Chargers as they watched Pleasure Ridge Park celebrate a 55-54 victory that saw the Panthers score eight points in the closing 16 seconds.
