  • Memorial Day special time

      While Memorial Day weekend was a wonderful time for gathering with family and friends for picnics, pool parties, and parades, I hope the true meaning of the event was not forgotten. 

    Memorial Day is an annual reminder of the brave men and women who have put everything on the line so we may live in freedom in the greatest nation in the world. 

    Born out of a wish to honor those who fell in the Civil War, Memorial Day serves as a nationally-recognized holiday to honor all those who have died in service of the United States. 

  • May observes work of Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency

     The month of May has been declared National Community Action Month by Governor Bevin.   Community Action has a history that dates back to the Johnson presidency.   A significant amount of services are provided by Community Action in Bullitt County.   Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency has been serving low income families and senior citizens in Bullitt County since the 1970’s and in the early 80’s evolved into a Community Action Agency.   

    So, what is Community Action? 

  • Lady Chargers leave no doubt in rout of North

     HEBRON ESTATES – After losing in the first-round of the Sixth Region Tournament two of the past three seasons, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers left no doubt on Monday in the tourney opener as they rolled past North Bullitt 17-1.

    This was the first regional level meeting in fast-pitch softball between two Bullitt County teams, but the outcome this time was never in doubt. The Lady Chargers scored three times in the top of the first inning and then scored in six of the seven innings including seven runs in the top of the seventh.

  • Butler next for East on Wednesday

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- After beating North Bullitt on Monday, the road will get a lot tougher for Bullitt East on Wednesday as they will face Butler in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Softbal Tournament at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Louisville’s Ulmer Stadium.

    Butler advanced to the showdown with a 2-1 victory on Monday over defending Sixth Region champion Holy Cross.

  • Eagles come up empty in loss to Fern Creek with 5-4 loss to Tigers

     HEBRON ESTATES – You never want a bad game to be your last game of a season.

    But, thanks to 11 walks and the lack of getting the big hit, the North Bullitt Eagles made a first-round exit in the Region Six baseball tournament on Monday.

    The Eagles fell 14-7 to the  visiting Fern Creek Tigers.

    “It’s tough,” veteran Eagle coach Brian Wise said after the game.

    Falling behind 8-0 after two innings proved too much for the home team to overcome.

  • Drug Court has saved lives of many participants

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- “I would be dead.”

    Richard Jesse is sure that if his life continued on the path it was taking, he would have been dead by now.

    The Jefferson County native had been in and out of jail since the age of 17. Alcohol and drugs had consumed his life.

    It wasn’t as if Jesse hadn’t tried to seek help. He’d been to various treatment facilities.

    “I knew I needed help,” said Jesse.

  • Ordinance, fees fall into place for animal office

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Animal control officials received some forward movement in their ordinance governing the operations at the shelter.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court unanimously agreed to both the list of fees to be charged and the ordinance governing the operation of the facility.

    There was little discussion on either matter.

    Dogs can be adopted from the shelter at a cost of $110. This includes spay or neuter, shots and a microchip.

    The court tabled a proposal to add up to 16 security cameras in the animal control shelter.

  • Arts council could fold due to lack of help

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The final curtain may soon fall on the Bullitt County Arts Council.

    Donna Burke, president of the council and a member of the Shepherdsville City Council, said that there is consideration to disband the organization.

    The dwindling number of people interested in keeping the group going is a major factor, said Burke.

    A meeting will be held on Thursday, June 1, at 6:30 p.m. at Dance with Steve and Donna, located on Highway 44 West in Shepherdsville.

  • Graduation ceremonies are all special

     Like a wedding, there can be no such thing as a bad graduation.

    As my alma mater was having an all-class reunion last Saturday, the three Bullitt County high schools were wishing the best to nearly 1,000 graduates.

    There are always special moments. That is what graduations are for.

    Superintendent Keith Davis had the chance to present his son, William, with his diploma from Bullitt East.

    School board vice chairman Darrell Colemen did the same for his niece, Annie Argenbright of Bullitt Central.

  • Time to put change in the Crusade boot

     It is hard to believe that another year has passed but you can tell by the firefighters standing on intersections holding their boots that it is indeed Crusade for Children time.

    That first weekend in June is the time in which Kentuckiana pours out its heart for the special needs children of this area.

    Every penny collected goes to helping the children. There is no administrative fees taken out.

    And, the money raised by Bullitt County fire departments will be returned to this community.
