  • Experience should fuel NB’s return to success

     HEBRON ESTATES -- It was a painful and frustrating 2016-17 campaign for Korey Craddock and his North Bullitt Eagles.

    A transfer of one player and an injury to the team’s leading returning scorer led to a tough season.

    However, the silver lining is that a lot of young players, including an eighth grader and several freshman, could speed up the recovery for the North Bullitt program.

    “I’m optimistic,” Craddock said of his current team. “We have a mix of youth and experience.”

  • Central ready to make another step forward

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Following a season in which the team was under-sized, inexperienced and often over-matched, yet still managed to win 10 games, the Bullitt Central Cougars are looking for bigger and better things in head coach Jessie Curry’s second season at the helm.

  • Highway 44 traffic concerns discussed

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - They are state roads, so it’s a state issue.

    Now the city is doing what it can to force the issue on the state.

    The Mount Washington City Council invited Sen. Dan Seum and Rep. Dan Johnson to a meeting for discussion on potential stop lights along Highway 44 East at Bogard Lane and N. Bardstown Road at Landis Lane.

  • Holiday festivities across county this weekend

      This weekend will be busy with holiday cheer throughout Bullitt County.

    Here's a list of some of the major festivities scheduled for the first weekend of December to help kick off the Christmas season:

    Live Nativity - Dec. 1-3

    The annual Walk Through Bethlehem will be held at Hillview Community Christian Church on Dec. 1-3.

    For the 19th year, the church will present a live Nativity scene, and seven stops in Bethlehem will feature live characters, including the animals.

  • Thanksgiving Service

     The annual Thanksgiving Community Service was held at the First Baptist Church of Shepherdsville.

    The benefactor of the love offering was the Fellowship of Concern, which provides temporary assistance to those in need.

  • MW water tower to have more capacity

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - In some ways a city’s water tower is a symbol for the surrounding community.

    Mount Washington is about to receive a new symbol thanks to an approved bid for a new, larger tower.

    The city council unanimously approved a bid, on the recommendation of city engineer David Derrick, by Phoenix Fabricators and Erectors, LLC, for the construction of a 1.5 million-gallon water storage tank.

  • Redistrict plan to ease overcrowding

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The dreaded subject of redistricing for the Bullitt County Public School System will again be part of the board agenda.

    On Monday, Nov. 27, the school board will listen to a proposal which would ease overcrowding in the Bullitt East cluster of schools beginning in the 2018-19 academic year.

    Under the proposal, the major concern is expected to come from residents in the English Mill and Miller’s Crossing subdivisions off Bells Mill Road.

  • East expects to contend in Sixth by March

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A high school basketball season is a marathon, not a sprint.

    That is why Bullitt East boys’ basketball coach Jason Couch isn’t nearly as worried about where his team is starting the 2017-18 season as he is excited about where the team could be when the post-season begins in late-February.

  • ROADSHOW for the week beginning November 26, 2017
