        These tips will help you treat your pocket book and the Earth right on this romantic night:

  • Central girls win, boys fall at Spencer County

    TAYLORSVILLE - The Bullitt Central basketball programs beat the snow and one of them picked up a win on Friday on a trip to Taylorsville to take on former district rivals Spencer County.

    The action started with the boys game, but the Cougars could not make it two in a row as the maroon and gray dropped a 56-42 decision to the Bears.

  • Valentine Gala tickets, package chances on sale available

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The 12th annual Valentine Gala, a fund-raiser for the Bullitt-Spencer County service center of the American Red Cross, will return on Saturday, Feb. 13.

        The annual event will again be held at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre in Shepherdsville.

        The theme for the night is An Evening Celebrating Our Armed Forces. The Wulfe Pack will provide music from 9 p.m. until midnight.

  • Lease approval helps keep radio communications

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - An updated tower lease agreement will help Bullitt County Disaster and Emergency Services maintain radio stability in the county’s southern end.

        Bullitt Fiscal Court approved an updated tower lease agreement with W&B Broadcasting, Inc. The company owns WAKY Radio, formerly known as Cool 103.5.

        DES coordinator Mike Phillips said an original lease agreement took place in 2003, allowing the county to place an emergency radio tower next to a radio tower located off of Collings Hill Road.

  • Cougars pick up seventh win; Girls still struggling

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - It has been a struggle at times this season for the Bullitt Central Cougars, but the team has already scraped together three more wins than all of last season with a month still remaining in the regular season.

  • Chargers stay hot in beating Spencer

    TAYLORSVILLE - Playing for the fourth time in six days, the Bullitt East Chargers went into one of the most hostile environments and came away with a win on Saturday as they beat Spencer County 80-63.

    For many years, Bullitt East made the short trip to Taylorsville at least once every season when the two rivals were both in the old 29th District. That changed five years ago and now the teams meet only once each season, rotating home games.

    This contest was originally set for Jan. 9, but was postponed because of snow.

  • Bullitt East starts wrestling program

        MOUNT WASHINGTON - Bullitt County’s newest high school athletic program will take to the mats tonight when Bullitt East competes in a wrestling match for the first time.

  • Spainhour wants state to 'do better'

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - It’s a matter that government can do better; it’s a matter that government must do better.

        With that in mind, John Spainhour has jumped into the ring as a candidate for the 20th District state senate seat. The position is open at year’s end as incumbent Gary Tapp opted to not run for re-election.

        While the attorney from Shepherdsville has never officially run for political office, he has plenty of campaign experience.
