        SHEPHERDSVILLE - A tract of property that was the target of pair of lengthy pieces of litigation may be leaving the corporate limits of Shepherdsville.

        The Rogers Group has requested that the city of Shepherdsville deannex the 128 acres taken into the boundaries in 1999.

  • County offers forum at night for public

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - County officials reached a compromise to the issue of whether Bullitt Fiscal Court should hold night meetings.

    After resident Bernie Brown mentioned that possibility several months ago, the court opted to try an approach which might serve the same purpose.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court will host a special public forum on Thursday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. in the courthouse.

    The special meeting will be to allow the public to come out and ask questions.


        Bullitt County Public Schools will be closed Tuesday, Feb 16, due to inclement weather.

        The decision was made by school board officials Monday afternoon.

        FAIRDALE - A first half of hope turned into a second half of frustration on Tuesday for the Bullitt East Chargers in their showdown with district rival Fairdale.

        Bullitt East played a strong first half, pushing the margin to 10 points and then leading 28-20 at halftime. That lead evaporated in the third quarter and after freshman Trey Rakes tied the game at 51-51 with 4:50 remaining in the game, Fairdale closed with a 12-5 run to win 63-56.

  • Southern gets the best from Eagles in two

        HEBRON ESTATES - For the first time since the two schools both became members of the 24th District, Southern pulled a sweep on Tuesday, taking both games in a girl/boy doubleheader.

        Despite playing at home, it was slow starts in both games that proved to be too difficult for the Eagle teams to overcome.

        First, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles fell behind 19-9 in the first quarter and trailed 35-20 halftime. Not even a 29-point fourth quarter could rally the Lady Eagles as Southern won 71-62.

        Bullitt East, the fourth-seeded team in the tournament, lost to fifth-seeded Sacred Heart a night after the Valkyries had barely beaten 12th-seeded Fern Creek 51-49.

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The running joke is that for homecoming, you schedule a team you think you have a chance to defeat.

        As a matter of fact, the Cougars faced two of the most athletic teams in Jefferson County.

        While the king and queen may have gone home happy, there was little joy in the Bullitt Central locker rooms.
