  • BE’s Murphy signs for golf at Campbellsville

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Often when it comes to the smaller sports and college signings, athletes will work through the head coach.

    But for Bullitt East senior Mark Murphy, knowing Campbellsville assistant coach Casey Young for the past several years paid big dividends when it came time to make contact with a college. It didn’t take very long for Young to sell head coach Jim Ward on the need to ink Murphy.

    It also didn’t hurt that Bullitt East golf coach has known Young since both played and completed in college against each other.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A pair of short bursts in the fourth quarter of each of the final two games of the tournament kept the Bullitt East Lady Chargers from making last week a coming out party for a program that started this season without any returning starters.

    Still, coach Chris Stallings’ program posted a 2-2 record in the second Queen of the Commonwealth tournament and finished fourth in a loaded field that included four teams ranked among the top-25 teams in the pre-season as well as defending state champion and pre-season number one Mercer County.

  • MW officials confident new tenant will be found

    The Mount Washington Family Diner and Ice Cream restaurant, located at 1150 North Bardstown Road, opened its doors on Feb. 7.

    By opening, the diner began a new adventure for the city as its first venture in the commercial rental business. Though the city had nothing to do with how the business operated, it served as the landlord.

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — Would Bullitt Countians support an indoor aquatic center?

    “There is a lot of interest for it,” said Li.

    Finding a location in Shepherdsville was a clear choice for respondents.
