  • Grandmother charged in missing toddler case

     LEBANON JUNCTION -- Less than a week ago, a community was searching for the whereabouts of a two-year-old girl and her dog.

  • It’s Fair Time

     It is midway through the Bullitt County Fair but there is plenty of time to go out and enjoy the many sights and sounds.

    The annual fair, which is operated and run by a totally volunteer board, runs through Saturday evening.

    This year, visitors will see some improvements to the facility, especially those watching the various pageants under the pavilion.

    When your major revenue generator is subject to the wishes of Mother Nature, it is difficult to predict the success of your county fair.

  • No fees noble effort worth considering

     Maybe it was a final effort to make a difference.

    Superintendent Dr. Keith Davis recently proposed a “no fee” zone for elementary and middle school students.

    The idea was pretty simple -- students would not be required to go out and purchase school supplies for their elementary and middle school years.

    They would also not be subjected to any class fees -- with the exception of Chromebooks and some field trips.

He was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week back early in the season and then he capped that off two weeks ago by being named the All-ACC First Baseman for 2018.

  • Truth or Consequences

     MOUNT WASHINGTON— Every student learns differently but more often than not, there isn’t time to try multiple ways to get one lesson across. When it comes to drug prevention, though, Mount Washington thinks it’s worth the work.

    In “Truth and Consequences: The Choice is Yours” eighth graders from both Mount Washington and Eastside Middle schools were given the unique opportunity to “live through” bad decisions like hiding drugs in their lockers or covering for a sibling who may be using.

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The pipeline between Bullitt County and the Spalding University women’s basketball program worked again this spring when Bullitt East senior Amber Higdon signed to play with the Lady Eagles and head coach Charlie Just.

    Higdon will be rejoining with former teammate Alyssa Peak who will be a sophomore with Spalding in the upcoming season. Former North Bullitt player Megan Goeing plays with the Lady Eagles and they will all be joined by North Bullitt twins Caroline and Sarah Janes next season.
