  • Hillview purchases St. Mary site

        HILLVIEW - The Rev. Bob Ray was met with hugs as he entered St. Mary Catholic Church for a final time.

        Despite the smiles and good wishes, Ray knew that it was a bittersweet day for many in attendance.

        Consolidation of Catholic parishes over the years did not avoid the people of St. Mary in Hillview. The parish was consolidated several years ago with St. Jerome in Fairdale and is now Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.

  • Salem Speedway championship down to the wire

        SALEM, IN - With an entry list spiced with wily veterans, young chargers and three former Salem winners, the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic, set for Saturday night, is shaping up as a wide open affair with a number of car-driver combinations capable of visiting victory lane.


  • Colts' defense stymies Chargers' offense

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Crossing midfield just once and never penetrating deeper than the DeSales’ 37-yard line, the Bullitt East Chargers came up short for a second straight week as they were derailed by the Colts 21-0.

    The loss came just a week after the Chargers were crushed by Holy Cross 63-12. In that game, the red and gold suffered a number of injuries to key players that made it difficult to put forth a sustained effort in this contest.

  • BC makes big statement by beating Trojans

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt Central Cougars warmed up for The War with an impressive battle on Friday, rolling past visiting Southern 40-13 for a second straight win to open the 2010 season.

    Bullitt Central scored three times in the second quarter and then pushed the lead to 27-0 midway through the third quarter and were in position to score again when they encountered a few bumps in the road. Still, by the end of the third frame the maroon and gray had the 40-13 advantage and cruised to the win.

  • Strength up front ready to power Eagle offense

    HEBRON ESTATES - A year of experience could go a long way for the North Bullitt Eagles in 2010.

  • THE WAR: Central, East set to battle in rediscovered rivalry

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest annual one-night event in Bullitt County will return for the 21st time on Friday when The War is fought once again between Bullitt Central and Bullitt East on the gridiron.

  • BC fans will need a program to know the players

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The biggest money-maker for the Bullitt Central football in 2010 might be from program sales.

    Cougar football fans will have trouble telling the players this fall without a roster. Gone are the core group of players who were the key to the turnaround of the program over the last three seasons after head coach Danny Leasor returned for his second stint at the helm.

    Bullitt Central has gone 19-14 over the past three seasons, the best record over that time span in over 35 years. The Cougars have gone 8-3 each of the past two seasons.
