  • Charger spring break trip had both sun and fun

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Behind some strong pitching, the Bullitt East Chargers returned home from a spring break trip to Florida with a perfect 4-0 mark for the first time.

    That performance left the team with a 6-1 record over the first two weeks of the regular season.

  • East girls took a big step; ready for next step

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Before the season began, Bullitt East Lady Charger head coach Chris Stallings talked about using a lot of players early in the season and then paring that number down in the second half of the season.

    As it turned out, his players never made that possible. The Lady Chargers ended up just as likely to use 12 players in a big game in February as they were in December. Few teams in the state turned out to be as deep as the red and gold.

  • Highway 44 traffic issues

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Traffic along Highway 44 in Shepherdsville could be difficult due to maintenance issues.

    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.

    Road crews working along Highway 44 West near Buckman Street have limited the traffic to just one lane.

    If Highway 44 East is closed, traffic may detour through Adam Shepherd Parkway, Second Street or Cedar Grove Road.

  • UPDATE: Boil water advisory for Cedar Grove area lifted

    CEDAR GROVE – The boil water advisory for residents impacted by the water main break at Omega Parkway and Cedar Grove Road has been lifted.  According a release from the Louisville Water Company, water quality tests confirm that the water is safe to drink.

    Residents whose refrigerators have automatic ice machines should allow the receptacle to fill twice and discard the ice.  Those with a chilled water line on the refrigerator door should allow it to run for approximately one minute before using.

     

  • Young BC softball squad wins three

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – The youthful Bullitt Central softball team gained even more confidence last week with three more wins including a key district win over Fairdale by a 10-3 count.

    Playing three games over spring break, the Lady Cougars won each of the three. That left the team with a 4-1 mark two weeks into the regular season.

  • UPDATE: Boil water advisory lifted

    MOUNT WASHINGTON – The boil water advisory for Mount Washington residents has been 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.
