  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • East needs late heroics to turn back Central

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - After rolling through the first game 25-8, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers probably didn’t think they were going to get a lot of court time Thursday night against Bullitt Central.

    They were wrong. The Lady Cougars roared back from the dead, winning the second game 25-22 and forcing a winner-take-all showdown. The third game was tied at 16-16 before Bullitt East scored eight straight points to secure a 25-17 victory.

    The change of fortune in the second game is not something new to Bullitt East head coach Michelle Gajdik.

  • Suggestions valid on plan for schools

    The crowd was pretty well behaved even though most came in angry. They didn’t like what the school system had proposed and they were all looking after the future happiness of their children.

    Despite the emotional evening, the Bullitt County Public School Board received a lot of quality comments from the two dozen speakers.

    In question is how to fill up a new elementary school in Mount Washington and how to eliminate the large student population at Freedom Elementary.

  • County tax rate will remain same

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Despite the tight financial restraints discussed by county officials the past year, Bullitt Fiscal Court opted Tuesday to keep its real property tax rates the same.

    By not accepting the compensating rate allowed, county officials turned down a possible $90,000 in additional revenue. And by rejecting the allowable 4 percent increase in revenue, the county officials will miss out on a possible $270,000 in funds.

    For a second straight year, Bullitt Fiscal Court members opted to not increase the real property rate.

  • Grave markers damaged by truck leaving roadway

    About a dozen grave markers at Hebron Cemetery were damaged as a truck driven by a juvenile headed to North Bullitt High School.

    On a foggy Tuesday morning, the juvenile driver left Hebron Lane, struck a utility pole and broke down a fence.

    The vehicle knocked over or broke over a dozen markers.

    The driver was not injured.

  • Mercy's Tran, Notre Dame win Lady Charger golf titles

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After starting the week with one of their best showings ever in beating defending regional champion Central Hardin, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers were looking for big things on Saturday in their own invitational tournament.

    The magic from early in the week did not roll over to Saturday. Playing in the Lady Charger Invitational at Tanglewood Golf Course in Taylorsville, coach Andy Oder’s team struggled with their game and finished tenth out of 16 teams.

  • Lady Chargers blitz BC 9-0

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - In the first intra-county girls’ soccer match of the season, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers struck quickly and then never looked back on Monday as they rolled past visiting Bullitt Central 9-0.

    Both teams had a pair of victories under their belts this season, but this one belonged to Bullitt East once they scored seven minutes into the game. Coach Brittany Orme’s team was up 4-0 at halftime and then coasted to the victory.

  • UPDATE: Public hearing on revised redistricting plan

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt County Public School Board will host its second public hearing on redistricting plans for the 2010-11 year.

    The public hearing will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Bullitt Central High School auditorium. A sign-in list will be available for those wishing to speak.

    The board will listen to comments about plans to redistrict students. Most of the discussion on this version will include schools in the central and eastern portion of the county.

  • Transportation study presented to public during open house on Thursday, Oct. 1

    The second open house for the Bullitt County Transportation Study will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1, at the Shepherdsville Government Center on Conestoga Parkway.

    The study is identifying community concerns and evaluating potential alternatives to improve mobility and safety in Bullitt County.

    A steering committee, led by Bullitt County Judge Executive Melanie Roberts, KIPDA, District 5 of the state transportation cabinet and other community community leaders, is coordinating the study.

    ENTRAN is the consultant for the project.
