  • Company earns safety award from labor cabinet

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The 600 employees and managers of Zappos.com in Bullitt County try to have a good time when they work distributing apparel and footwear throughout the world.

    But there is one thing each and every person is very serious about - safety.

    That concerted effort to make the fulfillment center off Cedar Grove Road a safe place to work was rewarded Thursday afternoon.

  • Tapp won't seek return to state senate

    FRANKFORT - When voters go to the polls next year, there is guaranteed to be a new candidate on the ballot for state senate in the 20th District.

    Gary Tapp, a member of the Kentucky Senate since 2003, has announced he will not seek re-election in 2010.

    Tapp served in the Kentucky House for four years before his two terms in the State Senate representing District 20, comprising Shelby, Bullitt, and Spencer Counties.

  • Times can get tough even for the local Easter Bunny

    Bullitt Countians prayed more than usual during Holy Week when news was leaked about the firing of the local Easter Bunny.

    Clyde “Dizzy” Cottontail and his assistant bunnies were fired following their last egg hunt, just weeks prior to Easter, by Bullitt Fiscal Court. The decision was a result of two consecutive lackluster egg hunt seasons in the minds of county magistrates and many rabbit fans.

  • Some good, some bad notes from legislative work

    Two steps forward. One step back. Perhaps that’s the best way to characterize the impact of the recently concluded legislative session on Kentucky’s prospects for progress.

    Clearly there was substantial progress made in key areas, but we fell short on some important matters.

    First step forward

  • Meth crimes results in major prison sentences

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Messing with methamphetamine doesn’t pay in Bullitt County.

    In cases last week in Bullitt Circuit Court, defendants learned the hard way that dealing or manufacturing in methamphetamine will result in serving multiple years in prison.

    Jonathan W. Knauer was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

    Attorney Jahmal Wooldridge requested probation for his client since it was his first felony offense.

    However, Circuit Judge Rodney Burress agreed with assistant commonwealth attorney Nick Raley.

  • COYLE'S CORNER
  • Eagles beat Trinity behind Wagner, but then fall to North Oldham

    HEBRON ESTATES - It was a short week for the North Bullitt Eagles, but  there was a huge victory as the green and gold turned back top-25 power Trinity by a 4-3 score on Wednesday.

    A day later, the outcome was not as positive as the Eagles traveled to North Oldham and lost to the Mustangs 8-1.

  • Deal struck for Shepherdsville sewer work

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A liquor situation that has much more far-reaching impact than Sunday alcohol sales in Shepherdsville was settled Monday evening after more than a year of talks and negotiations.

    The Shepherdsville City Council unanimously accepted a plan to expand sewer service south of its corporate limits to pick up hundreds of potential acres of development.

    It also allows for sanitary sewer service to be extended to Jim Beam Distillery in Clermont and to expand its existing treatment plant that is already near capacity.

  • BE baseball is hot again with four more wins

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Once again, the Bullitt East Chargers came out of playing in the Louisville Invitational Tournament on a hot streak.

    A year ago, the red and gold lost a game in that event and then did not lose again until the final of the Sixth Region Tournament, a mark of 14 straight wins.

    This season, Bullitt East lost twice the previous week in the LIT and then won four straight games last week including a 12-0 victory over Western Hills on Thursday, a team that has beaten Pleasure Ridge Park this year.
