  • LJ to propose some water, sewer increases

    LEBANON JUNCTION — After years of little or no rate increases, Lebanon Junction water and sewer customers will most likely be seeing a change in their bills soon.

    For several months council members have discussed the need to increase rates so the city’s municipal water and wastewater companies are self sufficient. In the past, the city has relied upon transfers from the its occupational tax fund for operating expenses — a practice that city attorney Mark Edison said is frowned upon by bond issuers.

  • School redistrict plan may be altered

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - School board members will have a slightly altered redistricting plan when they meet on Tuesday evening.

    And although Pat Smith-Darnell, director of pupil personnel, is sure the revised proposal won’t please everyone, she knows that a lot of time and consideration has been taken.

    She said her office, as well as board members, received much feedback over the past couple of months over the initial plan that would affect almost every school in the district to some degree.

  • Good numbers have BC girls thinking big in '09

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - An influx of players has Bullitt Central Lady Cougar soccer coach Neal Cox thinking big heading into the 2009 season.

    The maroon and gray have struggled in the past to have enough players to field a competitive team and also build for the future. This season, there are 30 players in the program and 22 dressing for varsity games.

    In addition, many of the players spent time together in the off-season playing indoor soccer at Mockingbird Valley. That has not only increased their soccer skills, but also their knowledge of playing together.

  • NB is in no position to overlook anyone

    HEBRON ESTATES - While the North Bullitt Eagles have done some good things - and some not so good things - through the first three weeks of the season, veteran head coach Brett Newton has one simple point to make before the team takes on winless Waggener this Friday in Jefferson County.

    “We’re not in position to take anyone lightly,” the coach said on Monday.

    North Bullitt has some tougher games on the horizon so this is a good chance to gain some much-needed confidence while getting the record back to the .500 mark at 2-2.

  • Four arrested in west Bullitt raid

    NICHOLS - Four people were arrested in the 39th methamphetamine lab raid of the year.

    When members of the task force and the Bullitt County Sheriff’s Department arrived on Aug. 27, they found an active lab in operation.

    Robert Atkinson, 39, of Shepherdsville, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, along with Johnathan Ernspiker, 26, of Lebanon Junction.

  • Couch comes off bench to turn back North Bullit

    VERSAILLES - Woodford County coach Chris Tracy had a secret weapon by the name of Couch on Friday night when the North Bullitt Eagles traveled to the heart of the Bluegrass.

    No, he wasn’t any relation to famed UK quarterback Tim Couch but he might as well have been.

    Sophomore Matt Couch came off the Yellow Jacket bench to throw a pair of touchdown passes in the 28-19 victory over the visiting Eagles.

    The loss dropped North Bullitt to 1-2 on the season, while the 5-A Woodford County went to 3-1.

  • Large crowd attends Guthrie's town hall

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It wasn’t a raucous crowd that you may have seen on the national news. But it was a large one.

    U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie made a stop at the Shepherdsville Government Center last Tuesday and was met with a variety of questions and comments from a crowd of over 100 people.

    Much of the discussions centered on the health care proposal being championed by President Barack Obama.

    While not supporting the current proposal, Guthrie said he knows there must be some health care reforms.
