  • Daughter grows up so quickly

     It finally dawned on me. My little girl was growing up.

    It was on a Tuesday afternoon. It was election day and I was taking my daughter, Amanda Jean, to the polling place for the first time.

    She was already legal to drive. But now she was legal to allow her views to be expressed on a paper ballot.

    Not only was she able to vote but she was also quickly approaching graduation day.

    You ponder what your children might become. With Amanda, that future has definitely not been determined.

  • Rolling Hills’ Merrick signs with Tiger V-ball

     HEBRON ESTATES – For the second year in a row, Campbellsville University reached out to Rolling Hills Christian to sign a player for its NAIA Volleyball program.

    This spring, it was Paige Merrick who got the call and she quickly accepted the offer from head coach Amy Zink. A year ago it was Baylee Jensen who Zink plucked from Rolling Hills.

  • BC’s Gossett, BE’s Armstrong named ‘Coaches of the Year’

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Two local tennis coaches have been recognized by their peers.

    The members of the Kentucky High School Tennis Coaches Association selected Bullitt Central’s Tiffany Gossett and Bullitt East’s Dustin Armstrong as the Sixth Region Coaches of the Year.

    “I was very surprised and thankful to receive such an honor from my peers,” said Gossett, who coaches both the boys’ and girls’ teams at Bullitt Central.

  • 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.

  • North grad Wyatt named All-ACC first team

     LOUISVILLE – To say that former North Bullitt standout Logan Wyatt had a banner season for the University of Louisville baseball team would be an understatement.

    After limited playing time as a freshman two seasons ago, playing first base behind national Player of the Year Brandon McKay, Wyatt had a breakout season this spring. 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.

  • East’s Higdon signs for hoops play at Spalding

     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.

  • Eastside’s Egan wins middle school hurdles title
