  • BE's Noe picks kicking...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - There is nothing wrong with a little self-promotion when it comes to the college recruiting game.

    Of that, Bullitt East senior Caleb Noe has plenty.

    That is perhaps most needed in the world of football kickers. Most colleges don’t sign high school seniors for that post. Instead, they look for a player to walk-on and to earn his keep.

    Noe didn’t have a problem with that thinking. This spring he agreed to attend Central Arkansas University, an NCAA Division I program, as a walk-on. He can earn that scholarship in year two.

  • Motor Mania at the 2010 Bullitt...

    If it had a motor you could probably have raced it, pulled it or crashed it at the 2010 Bullitt County Fair.

    It didn’t make any difference if it had two or four wheels.The annual summer spectacular had action every night in the lower arena.

    The action started with figure-8 races on the first night and continued with a GardenTractor Pull, a Truck Pull, the ATV & Motorcycle Dirt Drag to the Demo Derby on Friday.

    The final motor event was on Saturday night with Mud Racing.

  • Hockenbury inks for Spalding

    HEBRON ESTATES - Wearing yellow cleats during the high school season may have paid big dividends for North Bullitt Lady Eagle senior Kaleigh Hockenbury.

    The flashy shoes attracted the attention of Spalding head coach Kevin Cromwell when he came out to watch Hockenbury and her teammates in a game against Male last fall. The coach stayed in contact with the senior and recently Hockenbury signed all the necessary papers to play the sport at Spalding for the next four years.
