  • Cougar football ready to step up by moving down

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - While it is not new news, it is now time that Bullitt Central can start looking forward to a shift from Class 6-A to 5-A for the next two seasons at least.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association made that decision back in August, but since it doesn’t take affect until next season, there wasn’t a lot of reason to talk about it. The only thing making the announcement so early did was allow schools to start the scheduling process for the next two seasons.

  • Proposed fee could affect all development

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It has been a long process reworking the planning regulations that date back nearly 40 years.

    And revising the subdivision plans to conform with the federally-mandated clean water act hasn’t been much easier.

    Before a public hearing is held on the new subdivision regulations, it appears the Bullitt County Joint Planning Commission has a lot of different opinions to consider.

    The biggest point of contention continues to be the impact fee proposed for any future development.
