     SHEPHERDSVILLE  — Mother Nature continued to play tricks with spring sports.

    The Eagles went to Highview Park on Monday and came home with a 2-1 victory over Moore in its first match of the season.

  • NB’s Graham signs with Midway for hoops career

     HEBRON ESTATES — Coaches will often say a player’s best years are ahead of them.

    For Sierra Graham, there may be no more truthful statement.

    Coming off a major knee injury and joining a new team, Graham’s senior season has been an eventful one and, at times, frustrating. But, there is a silver lining.

    Recently, despite limited playing time during her senior season, Graham recently signed to continue her talents on the basketball court for Midway University.

  • Athletic scholarships 101

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – There were six players this winter that played basketball at Spalding University in Louisville, both males and females.

    That is great. All six of those players had stories about their college signings in this newspaper.

    And they all had something else in common. Not one of them got paid a dime based on their basketball ability.

    Spalding is an NCAA Division III program. Division III programs are not allowed to give athletic aid. 

  • Lebanon Junction to review its curfew for first time since ‘95

     LEBANON JUNCTION— Nothing good happens after dark, unless it’s authorized by the city.

    The Lebanon Junction City Council hasn’t touched the city’s curfew ordinance since 1995. In April, the council plans on revisiting the ordinance and bringing it up to date with 2018.

    “It’s not much to change other than some times,” mayor Larry Dangerfield said. “Crime has changed a little. Demeanor of the children has changed a little. Demeanor of the adults has changed a lot.”

  • Sunday set for seniors to walk the line

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Maybe it’s global warming, but high school graduation for Bullitt County Public Schools has been delayed due to snow.

    The school board unanimously approved the graduation date of Sunday, June 10, with the ceremonies taking place at Freedom Hall in Louisville, located within the Kentucky Expo Center.

    Students can’t graduate prior to the last day of classes, and numerous school-day cancellations led to the later date.

  • Split Council: Town board divided, share feelings

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It wasn’t a beautiful conversation.

    And, as the council members continued to talk, the scenery got even uglier on Monday night.

    The question at the end of the Shepherdsville City Council meeting remained quite simple, will the six members continue to be divided?

    Councilmember Donna Burke began the fireworks when she mentioned the desire to disband the beautification committee.

    Currently, councilmember Lisa Carter is the chairperson of that committee.

  • Op-Ed -- High school sports offer more toward all scholarships

     The following piece was written by Bob Gardner, Executive Director of the National Federation of State High School Associations and Jillian Tackett, Commissioner of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.


    Unfortunately, today many parents are trying to live out a dream through their sons and daughters – the dream of landing a college athletic scholarship by specializing in a sport year-round. Equally unfortunately, most of these dreams are never realized.


    Each year, the First Baptist Church of Shepherdsville hosts Holy Week services.

    Services are followed by lunch and fellowship.

    On Thursday, the Rev. Beverly McGuffee, pastor of Davidson Memorial United Methodist Church, lead the service.

    Attendees sang under the direction of Laura Haven.

    Ministers from various denominations lead the daily services each year.
