  • Sanitation District receives grant to improve parts of sewer system

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - For a second time, the Bullitt County Sanitation District will get some assistance in upgrading its sewer system.

    The district has been awarded a Kentucky Infrastructure Authority grant of $150,000.

    According to district manager Jerry Kennedy, the funds will be used to install and to improve manholes in the Tanyard Springs/Bullitt Hills area.

  • BC moves to 5-0 with bigger games ahead

    LOUISVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars continue to win, notching victory number five on Friday, but the team continues to do it with less than a full effort for 48 minutes.

    Against the Waggener Wildcats on Friday, the Cougars capped their four game road swing with a 33-19 victory against a team that has now lost 18 straight games dating back to 2007.

  • Eagles have no answer for Tates Creek QB

    HEBRON ESTATES - Homecoming week usually culminated with an excited crowd and an energetic football team.

    However, that wasn’t to be the case on Friday evening at North Bullitt High School.

    For whatever the reason, it was a subdued performance both on and off the field as the Eagles were defeated by an athletic Tates Creek team 29-7.

    The loss dropped North Bullitt to 2-3 on the season.

    “We took a big step backwards tonight,” said head coach Brett Newton. “This is the first step backwards that we’ve taken.”

  • Lebanon Junction Old Fashion Days Oct. 2-4: Festival has been important to this town for 60 years

    LEBANON JUNCTION — L&N Railroad Special Agent Elvin Doutaz knew that Lebanon Junction had been through a lot.

    By 1949, the town had weathered The Great Depression, the loss of the L&N Railroad terminal to Louisville and many businesses had went bust. But the town was still alive, and he wanted to prove it. He wanted his little railroad town to have an annual event that emphasized family, friends and community pride.

    Thus the Lebanon Junction Homecoming — now known as the Old Fashion Days Festival — was born.
