  • RELAY FOR LIFE: Survivors have great stories to tell about their experiences

     HEBRON ESTATES - The Bullitt County Relay for Life has seen many changes over the years.

    Most recently the venue has switched from the actual track at North Bullitt High School to a more condensed parking lot area with a makeshift track, which many patrons seem to favor for its proximity to all of the ongoing activities.

    The one remaining constant throughout the years is the gathering of local cancer survivors and their caregivers. The annual Relay Survivor and Caregiver victory laps mean more than just a celebration of victory, it’s their reward.

    “This is a very nice win and fills one of the small areas of a building which was vacant,” said John Snider, executive director of the Bullitt County Economic Development Authority.

  • BE’s Willis, Brown claim regional track crowns

     LOUISVILLE – Wins from Bullitt East seniors Taylor Willis in the girls’ high jump and from Matt Brown in the boys’ discus highlighted the local efforts in Saturday’s Class 3-A, Region 3 Track and Field Championships at Male High School.

    Competing in perhaps the state’s toughest region, a grouping that includes state track powers Male, St. Xavier, Central, Manual and Butler, the three Bullitt County programs find scoring team points a difficult task along with qualifying athletes for this week’s state track meet in Lexington.

  • PLEASE VOTE

     It is your right that should not be taken for granted.

    It is your duty to express your view on who your future leaders should be.

    It is not your right to complain if you are not part of the system.

    Next Tuesday, Bullitt Countians will be encouraged to go out to the polls and vote in the May 22 primary.

    Some of the winners will not face opposition in the fall. Others will.

    For a countywide race, there is little chatter.

    We hope that doesn’t mean that a majority of you plan to sit at home next Tuesday.
