  • Offenses MIA as Butler pulls out 57-51 win

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – In a battle of two of the top teams in the Sixth Region this season, the level of play never reached the expectations on Tuesday as Bullitt East and Butler slogged their way through an ‘ugly’ contest before the Bears left town with a 57-51 win that left fans of both teams disappointed.

  • HOMELESSNESS... It is not going to go away

     SHEPHERDSVILLE — Destiny would not be the prototypical figure speaking about homelessness.

    She is professional. She is attractive. She is very well educated. She is more than willing to talk about her story.

    We won’t run a photo of her and her daughter as Destiny was a featured speaker during a Giving Tuesday fundraiser for Bullitt County Housing First.

    We won’t run her last name.

    But what we will do is to use her story to kick off a story about a problem many of us want to ignore — homelessness.
