  • Eagle baseball seeking the next step - regional success

    HEBRON ESTATES - For most area baseball teams, getting to the University of Louisville’s Jim Patterson Stadium for a regional tournament game pretty much sits at the top of the ‘goal list’ at the start of each season.

    For the North Bullitt Eagles, it is more a ‘been there and done that’ mindset in terms of that wish list. Of course, the green and gold want to get to that stage, something they did last season. Now, the top goal is to start winning games that go far into the post-season.

  • Citizens may 'vote' on alcohol issue

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Alex Ramirez had heard the debates over Sunday liquor sales in the city of Shepherdsville.

    But, with his new Cabo Cantina’s Steaks and More now open on Cedar Grove Road at Interstate 65, Ramirez now realizes that the inability to sell alcohol on Sunday dramatically affects his business.
