  • Matheny helps library with Scout project

    Luke Matheny of Boy Scout Troop 687 selected Ridgway Memorial Library for his Eagle Scout Project.

    The project involved construction of an outdoor patio and sidewalk behind the library.

    The area will serve as an outdoor sitting area. The project involved excavating out the area, pouring concrete for a 14 x 20 foot patio and a 20 foot long sidewalk and creating a new landscaped area with plantings and lava rock.

    Three benches were also refurbished as a part of the work performed.

    The project was performed in three sessions in September and October of 2008

  • Lady Chargers put the clamps on NB's offense

    HEBRON ESTATES - Defense was the name of the game on Friday for the Bullitt East Lady Chargers as they made an unplanned trip to North Bullitt and beat the Lady Eagles 56-16.

    The contest was supposed to be played in Mount Washington and be homecoming for the Lady Chargers. Instead, work on some damage to the roof of the Bullitt East gym forced a quick move to North Bullitt. The move was not known until Friday morning.

    That didn’t seem to bother coach Chris Stallings’ team. Bullitt East was up 13-1 after one quarter and were never challenged.

  • Recent successes seem so long-ago for North Bullitt

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - One victory for the North Bullitt Eagles seemed like a month ago early last week as the green and gold dropped two more games, leaving head coach Lee Barger frustrated.

    It was just the previous Friday night that the Eagles beat Southern, the number one seed for the upcoming 24th District Tournament. Since that night, North Bullitt lost three straight games in four days, erasing all the positive thoughts from that earlier outcome.

  • East squads stay hot with two more important wins

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Two nights equaled two wins for the Bullitt East basketball programs over Holy Cross.

    On Monday, it was the Lady Chargers that traveled into Jefferson County and beat the Lady Cougars 53-49 in a game that was closer than many thought it would be.

    A night later, Holy Cross brought their boys’ team to Mount Washington and they were treated rudely on the court as Bullitt East jumped on top early and never looked back as they rolled to an 89-59 victory.

  • Legislators work on state budgetary issues

    FRANKFORT – With our thoughts understandably focused on what has been called the most widespread natural disaster in Kentucky’s history, my legislative colleagues and I returned to the Capitol early last week to begin the main portion of the 2009 Regular Session.

    We spent our opening days learning more about the recent storm’s damage and the unprecedented response that followed.  It has unfortunately claimed more than two dozen lives so far, and at its peak, more than 760,000 homes were without power.

  • UPDATE: County debris site to close March 3

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Fiscal Court determined that an original plan to keep a debris site open to the public for months was not financially feasible.

    A decision was made to close the site, located at the Bullitt county Stockyards, as of 6 p.m. Tuesday, Mar. 3.

    The date was selected because it falls on the day of the next Fiscal Court meeting. Officials said further issues would be discussed and any necessary further actions taken during that meeting.

  • Lady Eagles are pressed to death by Presentation

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - A poor start and a horrific finish made it a long night for the North Lady Eagles and a large homecoming crowd.

    Taking on Sixth Region rival Presentation, the Lady Eagles fell behind 8-0 after giving up six points in the first 30 seconds of the game. After rallying to within 12-11, North Bullitt scored just three points in the second quarter and fell behind 28-14. That was more than the green and gold could overcome in a 54-25 setback.

  • Central splits pair at North Oldham

    GOSHEN - The Bullitt Central Lady Cougars stayed hot on Friday as they hit the road and came away with a 56-48 victory over former Eighth Region rival North Oldham.

    Lady Cougar senior Lindsay Hester continued to shoot well from beyond the arc as she canned four three-pointers en route to scoring 24 points.

    Bullitt Central also got 11 points from junior Qualeatha Bennett.
