  • Bad weather halts some early season hoops games

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - It was supposed to be a slow start to the week anyway as area basketball teams get ready for the holiday basketball season, but bad weather early last week cut down an already slim slate of games.

    The one team that battled through the conditions were the Bullitt Central Cougars. They had an early game on Monday with Waggener that started at 6 p.m. so that game got played. The Cougars were then supposed to play Oldham County on Tuesday, but because there was no school in either school system that day, the game was pushed back and played on Wednesday.

  • Fees studied for treatment, no transport by Bullitt EMS

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – If you call an ambulance in Bullitt County in the future and then decide you don’t want to be transported to the hospital, it might cost you a few dollars.

    With over 30 percent of the patients seen by the Bullitt County Emergency Medical Service not needing transport, it is eating up a lot of the financial resources, not to mention manpower and vehicle usage.

    Under a proposal under consideration by Bullitt Fiscal Court, the free service might have a fee attached in the future.

  • Bounty of Hope on Christmas Day

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Tom Chamberlain’s Boy Scouts helped at the First Baptist Church prepare meals for over 340 people during Thanksgiving.

    He realized that nothing was being done to help those on Christmas day who might need a meal.

    A committee of members at St. Aloysius Catholic Church decided to look at what could be done.

    Bounty of Hope was born and on Christmas morning, he hopes to serve a meal to 300 families, as well as another 150 meals delivered to those who can’t come out to St. Aloysius.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Connecting on ten three-pointers, the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars jumped on top early and then cruised past the North Bullitt Lady Eagles 64-40 on Friday.

    What made it hard for North Bullitt to defend was that the Lady Cougars wee getting strong outside shooting from a pair of players. Initially, it was sophomore Keoka Hilliard who bombed in long shots in the first half, making four as Bullitt Central raced out to a 35-15 halftime edge.
