    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Voters in Bullitt County may get a sneak peek at how the new paper ballot system will work prior to the May 2010 primary election.

    County clerk Kevin Mooney said he felt it would be a good idea to allow voters a chance to use the paper ballot machines prior to next spring’s elections.

  • Maturing Hawks claw past Eagles

    HODGENVILLE - For the past several years, Brett Newton had talked about how well-prepared the LaRue County Hawks were when the teams played.

    North Bullitt had the upper hand in past meetings but those young Hawks have grown up and they got a bit of revenge on Saturday night.

    In a game postponed from Friday due to the rains, LaRue County easily beat North Bullitt 42-6.

    For the Eagles, the only highlight of the game came on the opening series.

  • Bullitt East capitalizes on big plays

    HEBRON ESTATES - Forget about the records.

    Forget about the weather.

    Forget about if it is a district game or just a pickup contest in a subdivision field.

    It was Bullitt East versus North Bullitt on Friday night in the annual CLASH.

    On this particular night, it would be Charger coach Doug Preston who would leave with the biggest smile as his Bullitt East team held off the scrappy Eagles 21-13.

    Both Preston and North Bullitt counterpart Brett Newton found reasons to smile after the district battle.

That team earned the only home play-off game in school history.

    On Thursday evening, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5710 and its Ladies Auxiliary hosted a special service to observe national POW/MIA day.

    As part of the ceremony was the raising of the POW/MIA flag donated by the American Legion Post 157 in Shepherdsville.

The loser will finish third in the district and will have to go on the road for all of the play-offs.

    This will also be Homecoming Week at Bullitt East.
