  • Lady Chargers split four in Florida

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There were a couple of disappointing stretches for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers on their annual spring break trip to the Disney Spring Training complex in Florida.

    It was sort of a bad doughnut week for the red and gold. There were losses surrounding the week, but with two wins in the middle.

  • Open Arms supports grandparents who are raising their grandchildren

      MOUNT WASHINGTON -- Bullitt County has recognized a need and is taking action.

    Jacey Smothers, family resource center coordinator at Mount Washington and Roby Elementarys, said both of her schools have a lot of grandparents that are raising their grandchildren now.

    She said she thought Open Arms, a support group for grandparents and other relative caregivers, would be beneficial to her school communities and others.

  • ZOMBIE TRIPLE FEATURE

     HEBRON ESTATES - Sometimes high school students seem like zombies when they get up in the morning for school.

    North Bullitt Drama students appeared that way on purpose for a special zombie trilogy presentation of one-act plays known as the “Zombie Creature Triple Feature.”

    The plays included “10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse” by Don Zolidis, “Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Being a Zombie” by Jason Pizzarello, and “The Brainfest Club” by Drama Club director Adam Elliott.

  • Shepherdsville mayor aim of sheriff’s probe

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Bullitt County Sheriff’s Office is turning over information that could lead to the possible indictment of Shepherdsville mayor Scott Ellis.

    But Ellis maintains his innocence and will continue to serve in his capacity of mayor.

    According to Cpt. Mike Murdoch, public information officer for the sheriff’s office, no charges have been filed.

    However, the five-month probe has resulted in enough information of alleged offenses to turn the evidence over to the commonwealth attorney’s office.

  • PSC hearing full of talk; no report on sewer plant issue released

     FRANKFORT -- The possible surcharge on customers of the Hunters Hollow sewage system was not on the table during a recent hearing of the state Public Service Commission.

    What was under discussion was some of the events leading to and following the March 2014 failure of the privately-owned sewage treatment plant off East Blue Lick Road.

    Members of the PSC listened to a full day of testimony. No results have been released.

    Since the failure of the treatment plant last spring, temporary provisions have been put into place.

  • Bullitt East students continue to gain national recognition

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- A local project has captured some national attention. The Youth Chamber of Preservationists was recently commended by the U.S. States Environmental Protection Agency for their project “Put a LID on it.”

    Four juniors at Bullitt East High School: Haley Steinmetz; Eliza Love; Gavin Blain and Isaac Shelton, utilized the EPA national stormwater calculator to survey and create a low impact design model for the site of the new Mount Washington Public Library.

  • Eagles play like Ripken over spring break

     MYRTLE BEACH -- The weather was great and the play was near perfect.

    The North Bullitt Eagles returned to the Cal Ripken Experience in South Carolina and returned home with a 5-0 record.

    You can’t pick your opponent and head coach Brian Wise was more worried about his team than who sat in the other dugout.

    He liked what he saw. And the results came against some quality teams.

    On Monday, the Eagles opened with a 6-5 victory over Bishop Watterson of Ohio.

  • East struggles in week at Disney

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Between the team’s first and second games at the Disney Spring Training facility, Bullitt East was presented a trophy for making the spring break trip to central Florida for ten straight years.

    At that point, the Chargers probably should have come home. The red and gold had beaten Passaic, New Jersey on that Sunday but after getting the award, Bullitt East lost four straight games. That made it the least successful on field success story over the ten-year period.

  • BC baseball still seeking answers

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was a nice trip.

    That was about the best news that Bullitt Central baseball coach G.J. Moore could report after his team returned home after a spring break trip to the Panama City Beach Bash. It was the first trip out of the area for the Cougars since Moore became the head coach.

    Unfortunately, on the field, the Cougars lost all four games and in some of those games they were not competitive.
