  • County employees may go to four-day work weeks

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Facing a shortfall of $2 million, county employees may be taking a lot unpaid time off in the upcoming fiscal year.

    Bullitt County Judge/Executive presented her 2009-10 fiscal budget to magistrates on Thursday.

    The county budget of $15,3 million is about $2.7 million less than the current plan.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court members will take the proposal and a final budget will be approved prior to June 30.

    The key plan to balance the budget will come through going with a four-day work week for non-emergency employees.

  • Chargers bounce back with hot bats

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - After being shut-out for the first time this season and striking out 17 times on Tuesday against North Bullitt, the Bullitt East Chargers were obviously down.

    HEBRON ESTATES - A great pitching duel went to the North Bullitt Eagles on Tuesday as the Eagles once again rode the spectacular pitching of senior Matt Wagner to a 1-0 victory over Bullitt East, the state’s sixth-ranked team.

    It was the second time in as many weeks that coach Brian Wise’s team needed a strong outing from Wagner. He threw a perfect game a week earlier against Bullitt Central in a 1-0 win and then on Tuesday he struck out a school-record 17 batters in the win over the Chargers.
