  • Mt. Washington VFD looks to build facility for trucks

    MOUNT WASHINGTON — Things are cramped at Mount Washington Fire Protection District’s Station 1 on Bardstown Road.

    There’s no room for new equipment and sections of the station’s main bays are used to store training and maintenance equipment that is important but isn’t used for emergency response. 

    Fire chief Michael Dooley and the district’s Board of Trustees agree it’s time to expand the station, which serves as the department’s main base.

  • Two charged in fatal accidents

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The driver of a vehicle involved in a crash, which killed 22-year-old Joshua Michael Bartley, has been indicted by the Bullitt County Grand Jury.

    And a Bullitt County man has been charged with the death of his cousin in a separate incident.

    On July 15, Woloch was driving a southbound 2001 Dodge Stratus when it left Bardstown Road in Mount Washington.

  • 19th annual Six Sigma Championship Night at Salem Speedway Oct. 3

    SALEM, Ind. ee" Fall foliage, stock cars and the high banks of Salem Speedway. That historic combination continues on Saturday, Oct. 3, as the Lucas Oil Super Stocks and Dave & Deb’s Winner’s Circle Street Stocks converge on the super-fast, half-mile oval for the 19th annual Six Sigma Championship Night.

    Championship Night marks the final points race of the season for both Salem Speedway divisions.

  • One win does not a rivalry make, but The War is hot

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Without a doubt, one win does not a rivalry make.

    That is true of any rivalry and very true of The War.

    Still, that said, Bullitt Central’s 30-27 victory a year ago in Shepherdsville sure has breathed new life into what was a morbid series for a handful of years. Remember, Bullitt East had won ten games in a row in The War and in the four meetings previous to Bullitt Central’s win, the Chargers had outscored the Cougars 169-19.

  • Regional golf this week

    The first post-season for the fall sports teams will be this week as golf enters regional play for both the boys’ and the girls’ programs. Both of those events will be held at Shawnee Golf Course in west Louisville.

    First up will be the boys’ Region 3 tournament which will be contested on Monday. This will be an 18-hole event starting at 8:30 a.m.

  • County's first pot bust big one for Task Force

    LEBANON JUNCTION - Working on a tip from an anonymous phone call, the Bullitt County Drug Task Force and Sheriffs Department made the county's first marijuana bust of 2009.

    Investigators visited the address on Beech Grove Road after receiving a call Tuesday about a possible indoor marijuana facility.

    "The odor was emanating so strongly that we had no doubt the phone call was legitimate," said Drug Task Force director Kenny Hardin.

  • Big game for Cougar fortunes

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The most important game to date in Bullitt Central’s football rejuvenation will come this Friday as the maroon and gray play host to district rival Doss in a key game for both teams.

    Doss is actually the defending district champions from a year ago before Bullitt Central dropped down to this district in Class 5-A. As Cougar head coach Danny Leasor is quick to point out, the winner of this game will be assured of hosting at least the first-round play-off game in the post-season.

  • KISS! It worked wonders for BC in the second half

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - During his first stint as the Bullitt Central football coach some 25 years ago, one of Danny Leasor’s favorite acronyms was KISS - which stands for ‘Keep It Simple Stupid.’

    It took the Cougar coach half a game on Friday to remember that philosophy.

    When Bullitt Central went KISS in The War, the maroon and gray found a lot of success.
