    The Shepherdsville Police received notification through CSX that the crossing at Highway 44 East next to Publishers Printing would be closed at various times during the remainder of the week for repairs.

  • UPDATE: Boil water advisory lifted

    A broken water main at Highway 44 and Greenbriar Lane left many customers and local schools without water Thursday morning at approximately 8:45 a.m.

    Mount Washington Utilities Superintendent Ronnie Fick said the break would probably take two to three hours to repair and customers might experience low water volume temporarily.

  • East softball needs a few breaks

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The record isn’t what second-year Bullitt East softball coach Ed Phelps would like, but he feels that with a key play here or a hit there, that the Lady Cougars would have a much better record than the 1-6 start.

    That was especially true last week as the team went to Fort Walton Beach, Florida for a spring break tournament. Bullitt East lost all five games on the trip but two of the losses were by single runs.
