  • Charger boys and girls are riding nice winning streaks

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Both of the Bullitt East basketball teams went on the road last Tuesday to face former Eighth Region foes and after the results both teams probably wish they were still in that region.

    In the girls’ game, Bullitt East had a dominating performance as they beat former rival Shelby County 63-43. The Lady Charges had a 13-point scoring advantage in the third quarter and then coasted to the win, the team’s seventh straight win in January.

  • Lady Cougars win fourth straight; Southern beats BC

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - After a slight bump in the road to start the new year, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars pushed their winning streak to four games on Tuesday with an 86-26 romp past 24th District rival Southern.

    The victory moved the Lady Cougars a step closer to a winner-take-all game against Bullitt East on Feb. 6 in Shepherdsville for the top seed in the 24th District Tournament which will be held the last week of February at North Bullitt.

  • LIT a tough rock for the Eagles to crack Tuesday

    LOUISVILLE - The North Bullitt Eagles’ first trip to the Boys’ Louisville Invitational Tournament was a short and sour affair as the green and gold were eliminated on Tuesday with a 67-23 loss to the Trinity Shamrocks.

    As he had done four years ago in a 24th District upset for Fairdale, North Bullitt head coach Lee Barger drew up a game plan that called for the Eagles to hold the ball against a more talented foe. Unfortunately, that plan didn’t work this time, mainly because Trinity scored two baskets before North Bullitt ever got the ball over half-court.

  • Bullitt Central sweeps pair of games from North

    HEBRON ESTATES - The Bullitt Central Cougars’ new look and new attitude picked up victory number one on Friday as the maroon and gray run and gunned their way past the North Bullitt Eagles 84-82.

    This was the third meeting of the season between the two rivals, but it was by far the most offensive. Three weeks earlier, in the seventh-place game of a tournament at LaRue County, North Bullitt had pulled out a 52-51 win. Bullitt Central won the earlier regular season contest 78-60.

  • Lady Chargers pull away late

    HEBRON ESTATES - After a slow start, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers found the correct gear on Friday, pulling away from arch-rival North Bullitt over the last three quarters to win 71-43.

    While this has been a heated rivalry over the past few seasons, this was not expected to be a close contest. North Bullitt has won just five games this season and they were riding a seven-game losing streak.

    Bullitt East on the other hand had won seven straight games and is ranked third in the powerful Sixth Region.

  • Ambulance fees increased, non-transports to pay

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Those needing assistance from the Bullitt County Emergency Medical Service will be paying a little more.

    And those who call EMS but do not need transport to a medical facility will now be paying a flat fee.

    Bullitt Fiscal Court unanimously approved the rate hikes and the non-transport fees.

    Magistrate David Walker was especially interested in getting some type of fee for those who are using EMS for first aid and immediate care medical attention.

  • Police looking for murder suspect

    FOX CHASE - When residents drove along Tembroke Drive on Friday afternoon, they were greeted by police cars and television satellite trucks.

    Little did they know that sometime on Thursday evening that Donald R. Ash, 55, was killed in his home.

    The Pioneer Village Police Department and the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department have labeled the death as a homicide.

    "We have a couple of people of interest," said Dave Greenwell, police chief for the city of Pioneer Village.

  • Those using services need to pay freight

        Even after covering a community for years, you can learn something every day.

        Take in point the Bullitt County Emergency Medical Services. We never figured out that if you call an ambulance for service but were not transported to the hospital, there was no bill attached.

        Bullitt County fiscal court members are wise to look at some type of flat fee to charge those who call for EMS to treat what should be done at an immediate care center or an emergency room.

  • Dadisman, Carr honored by Scottish Rite for contributions to community

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Masons from throughout the county gathered recently as the Bullitt County Scottish Rite held its annual dinner and recognition.

    As part of the annual dinner, the organization honored its Mason of the Year and its Outstanding Citizen.

    Robert L. Dadisman was selected as the Outstanding Mason and Larry Carr was selected as the Outstanding Citizen.

    In addition, the McNeil Lodge 586 in Lebanon Junction was selected as the Outstanding Lodge of the year.

  • KIPDA will do county transportation study

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - If you asked residents of Bullitt County to tell you one of their biggest concerns, it would probably involve roads.

    Whether it concerned safety or whether it was about congestion, roads are a concern in a growing community.

    To get a better handle on some of the traffic issues, Bullitt Fiscal Court approved a planned transportation study to be conducted by the Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency.

    Andy Rush, a transportation planner for KIPDA, said similar studies had been done previously for other member counties, such as Oldham.
