  • Community invited to help MAPP out plans for county's future needs

    SHEPHERDSVILLE — What exactly determines the overall health of a community?

    A person’s overall health includes physical, spiritual and mental aspects, including access to adequate employment and healthcare, education and lots of opportunities for physical exercise and interaction.

  • Renewal of wedding vows to be extra special for LJ couple

    LEBANON JUNCTION - When high school sweethearts Scott and Misty Cunningham married on June 17, 1995, and vowed to support one another for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, they were very serious about the love they pledged for one another.

    But neither of them knew exactly how those vows would be tested 14 years later.

    Just a little over one year ago on Oct. 23, 2008, Misty began experiencing severe stomach pain and she sought emergency medical attention at Jewish Hospital South’s emergency room.

  • Extreme ATV park thrown off track

    BROOKS - Owners of property that includes an old Superfund site had hoped to legally use the land for outside sports, such as ATV trails.

    However, that appears to be a mute issue.

    The Bullitt County Board of Adjustment voted 5-1 to deny a conditional-use permit for S&S Land Development Group to use its 503 acres off Smith Landfill Road for an extreme ATV park.

    With losing the conditional-use permit part of the process, attorney Paul Whitty then withdrew his client’s rezoning request on Thursday night.

    This year, the Jaguars competed in Division 2 for the Gold championship. They played teams from Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota.

  • Thacker leads BC to state

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - With three runners amongst the top 20 finishers in Saturday’s Class 3-A, Region 3 Championships at the old River Road Country Club course, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars did something that even head coach Martin Tallent had not considered a few days earlier - they qualified for the Kentucky State Championships this Saturday in Lexington.

  • Local teams learn a lot from state meet

    LEXINGTON - Both Bullitt Central girls’ coach Martin Tallent and Bullitt East boys’ coach Lenny Raley knew when the day began that their teams would not be challenging for even a top-10 finish in Saturday’s Kentucky State Cross-Country Championships on the new course at the Kentucky Horse Park.

  • Golf carts may be allowed on Fox Chase roads

    FOX CHASE - Unless changes occur before the city’s December council meeting, Fox Chase residents will soon be able to legally drive golf carts on city streets.

    City attorney Mark Edison presented the first reading of a new ordinance allowing for licensed carts to be used on the streets.

    The ordinance bans four-wheeled vehicles and scooters, but exempts golf carts driven by residents 12 years old and up.

    The golf cart issue was brought up in previous meetings by residents who were concerned about legally driving their carts.

    The Bullitt County Middle School Tournament was sponsored this year by Schmid Funeral Home along with The Awards Center and The Pioneer News.

  • Real life is scariest tale of Halloween

    Amidst the creeps and crawls of the scary Halloween holiday I am always reminded of the one thing that is scariest of all: Real life.

    When you think about it, Bullitt County can sometimes be spookier than a haunted house. It's not just groups hunting for ghosts and researchers contemplating the potential end of the world. Just living through a regular day can give you the skivvies.
