  • Working out Dec. 21 for Make-A-...

    MOUNT WASHINGTON--This is the second year Anytime Fitness in Mount Washington is trying to raise awareness in the community, but this time the charity hit close to home for owner Paul Ing.

    The fitness center will host Workout for Wishes Dec. 21 at 10 a.m. All of the proceeds from the event will then be donated to Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    Ing has a special connection with Make-A-Wish because they granted a wish for his son, Nathan, before he passed four years ago. He battled with brain tumors for two and a half years.

  • East’s Ralph signs to play...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Baseball is not always considered a game involving a lot of speed.

    However, one part of baseball happened very fast for Bullitt East senior Alex Ralph and that was his recruitment by Bellarmine University to join the Knights’ squad starting next fall. Ralph recently made it all official, holding a ceremony in the Bullitt East Media Center in which his parents, sisters, coaches and teammates were present for the big event.

  • North Bullitt girls show...

     HEBRON ESTATES - Amber Courtney liked what she saw in the season opener for her North Bullitt Lady Eagles.

    And the crowd assembled for the Monday night affair against Bardstown also seemed to enjoy the uptempo play from the Lady Eagles.

    Thanks to a 21-2 third quarter advantage, North Bullitt walked away with a 77-45 victory over the Lady Tigers.

    “Overall, I’m pleased with the effort,” said Courtney. “I like a lot of things I saw but there is still a lot to work on.”

  • Bernheim set to honor former...

     CLERMONT - Jimmy Carnes will bring back a bit of the past on Thursday night.

    As part of Bernheim Middle School’s 20th celebration year, boys’ basketball coach Carnes will honor the first county championship for the school.

    After beating Mount Washington in the semifinals, Bernheim defeated Bullitt Lick by eight points to win the championship.

  • BC bowling starts fast

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The Bullitt Central bowling teams have gotten off to a quick start this season through the first three weeks of the regular season.

    After the first four matches, the Cougars stand at 3-1 while the Lady Cougars are 2-2.

  • Chargers start fast, then roll...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – The Bullitt East Chargers raced out to a 16-2 lead and never looked back on Monday as they opened the 2013-2014 season with a 66-53 victory over visiting North Oldham.

    It was just the start that former head coach/new head coach Bob Blackburn was looking for as he takes over a team that returned no starters from a year ago. The starting line-up for the Chargers included one senior, one junior and three sophomores as the team looks to build a rotation and a chemistry for what is most certainly a new era in Bullitt East basketball.

  • Pancake breakfast more than a...

     In the world of reporting, it is not unusual to see tears shed.

    But you normally don’t see that happen at a youth baseball all-star game. And, when it happens, the tears normally flow from an upset child after a loss or an angry parent who believes his or her child didn’t get enough playing time.

    On this particular Saturday afternoon, it was a coach shedding tears and apologizing to one of his players.

    He was upset the young man had not gotten into the game. 

    His displeasure in himself led to tears. His own tears.

  • Chargers ready to begin bright...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There are few basketball programs in the long history of the sport in Kentucky that will look more different from year to the next than this year’s Bullitt East Chargers.

         First, gone are all five starters from last season’s team that posted a 29-5 record and was ranked as the number one team in the state at times before being upset by Pleasure Ridge Park 40-38 in the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Tournament. That group of players had reached the two previous Kentucky State Basketball Tournaments.

  • After rebuilding, Cougars...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Following a rebuilding season that saw the team win just ten games, the Bullitt Central Cougars look to parlay a wealth of experience into another successful season this winter.

         It was just two years ago that coach Joe Pat Lee led the Cougars to a 21-9 record. That team lost all five starters, leading to the rebuilding season a year ago.

  • Briggs takes over NB squad at...

     HEBRON ESTATES – What started out as a relatively mundane coaching hire for the North Bullitt Eagles back in the summer, turned into something a lot bigger a few weeks ago when Dick Briggs was elevated to coach the boys’ varsity team this season.

         It was a whirlwind turn of events for Briggs who hasn’t been a high school head coach since the 1960s. Even then, that experience was in Indiana. This is Briggs’ first head coaching job in Kentucky.
