  • Big first half powers Bearcats past the Cougars

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Into each life a little rain must fall.

    On Friday it poured on the Bullitt Central Cougars.

    Facing the best team so far on the schedule, the maroon and gray had no answers as Anderson County the last five touchdowns of the game as they ended Bullitt Central’s 6-0 start with a 42-7 victory that left Cougar head coach Danny Leasor scratching his head.

    The coach felt his team was ready for such a big game, but the Bearcats took it to the Cougars, especially up front.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Walking into Bullitt Lick Middle School on Monday and being recognized by many of the sixth-graders was pretty awesome for Shepherdsville police officer Christina Boone.

  • Hillview has eye on more office space

    HILLVIEW -- When Mayor Jim Eadens wants to hold a private conversation in his office he might have a little trouble.

    From the city files that are stacked in the office to the basketballs bouncing against the wall from the adjoining gym, Eadens said the Hillview city staff is out of room.

    And he’s looking for a way to find a little more room on the city’s budget.

    For the second time in as many years, Hillview officials talked about moving outside its current facility to find more space.

  • Voters to get sneak peek at new ballot

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Voters in Bullitt County may get a sneak peek at how the new paper ballot system will work prior to the May 2010 primary election.

    County clerk Kevin Mooney said he felt it would be a good idea to allow voters a chance to use the paper ballot machines prior to next spring’s elections.

  • Maturing Hawks claw past Eagles

    HODGENVILLE - For the past several years, Brett Newton had talked about how well-prepared the LaRue County Hawks were when the teams played.

    North Bullitt had the upper hand in past meetings but those young Hawks have grown up and they got a bit of revenge on Saturday night.

    In a game postponed from Friday due to the rains, LaRue County easily beat North Bullitt 42-6.

    For the Eagles, the only highlight of the game came on the opening series.

    Zack Reynolds took the opening kickoff and returned the ball 40 yards to the Eagle 48.

  • Bullitt East capitalizes on big plays

    HEBRON ESTATES - Forget about the records.

    Forget about the weather.

    Forget about if it is a district game or just a pickup contest in a subdivision field.

    It was Bullitt East versus North Bullitt on Friday night in the annual CLASH.

    On this particular night, it would be Charger coach Doug Preston who would leave with the biggest smile as his Bullitt East team held off the scrappy Eagles 21-13.

    Both Preston and North Bullitt counterpart Brett Newton found reasons to smile after the district battle.

That team earned the only home play-off game in school history.

  • POW/MIA: Not home but not forgotten

    On Thursday evening, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5710 and its Ladies Auxiliary hosted a special service to observe national POW/MIA day.

    As part of the ceremony was the raising of the POW/MIA flag donated by the American Legion Post 157 in Shepherdsville.
