  • Flicker of life shown in fire tax lawsuit

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Garland “Corky” Miller doesn’t understand it.

    A lawsuit filed by four fire taxing districts against the city of Shepherdsville has been in the court system for 10 years.

    But a decision could come within the next month.

    The matter has been on Bullitt Circuit Judge Rodney Burress’ desk for over a year waiting for attorneys to agree that it was ready for a decision.

  • East's Stevens and Harrison win at Bulldog

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt East’s Jackie Stevens and Bobby Harrison put up impressive numbers again over the weekend as the Charger track and field teams competed in the Bulldog Classic at the University of Louisville.

    The meet included teams from four states, but for some reason the meet did not keep running team scores despite the fact that the top six finishers in each event were awarded ‘team’ points.

    Stevens, a junior, continued her domination of the discus and shot put this spring, winning both events against strong fields.

  • MW takes step to increase water, sewer rates

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The first step to implementing a 17.5 percent water and sewer rate increase was taken at a Mount Washington city council meeting last Monday.

    The council had its first reading of an ordinance to increase rates for all of its customers, including those who are exclusively water or sewer customers.

  • County forms committees to look at issues like budget, roads

    SHEPHERDSVILLE -- In an effort to work on issues between meetings of Bullitt Fiscal Court, committees were set up on Tuesday.

    And membership would rotate every six months.

    Magistrate Eddie Bleemel said he wasn’t trying to take any power away from Bullitt County Judge/Executive Melanie Roberts. However, he felt some standing committees were needed to work on issues between meetings.

    The two committees established were for budgets and personnel, as well as infrastructure.

  • 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.

    That didn’t last long. Over the next four days, the Chargers won four of five games. In the four wins, the red and gold scored 54 runs and didn’t strike out 17 times in the four games.

  • Mighty pitching duel goes to Wagner and NB 1-0

    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.

  • Home-(Not so)-Sweet-Home for BC

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It’s good to be home...sort of...if you are the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    Playing a home game for the first time in over a year last week, the maroon and gray were certainly happy for the situation. Unfortunately, in two home games last week, the Cougars came up on the short end of the score both times, which were the only two contests they played last week.
