  • Cancer Awareness Day in Hillview

     For the second year, Richard Luce organized a Cancer Awareness Day in Hillview. It featured a model train show, a car show and crafts.

Despite a rainy day, a good crowd showed up at the Hillview Community Center to help raise awareness about the battle against cancer.

  • Survivors, caregivers all have special stories to tell

     HEBRON ESTATES - The clouds broke away and sunshine prevailed at the 2016 Bullitt County Relay for Life.

    Even without the sun, smiles were bright along the North Bullitt High School track, where cancer survivors and their caregivers celebrated by taking victory laps.

    Many of the faces in the purple survivor shirts are familiar to one another, many of them gathering together since the first Bullitt County Relay to celebrate and raise awareness.

    Below are a few of the many stories that celebrated life during the 2016 Relay for Life:

  • Hardaway Memorial Scholarship

     Miranda Rippy of Bullitt Central High was recently awarded the Hardaway Memorial Scholarship from First Harrison Bank.

    This continues the tradition started by The Peoples Bank of Bullitt County.

    Rippy will receive a $1,500 scholarship that will go toward her studies at Morehead State University. She will major in education.

  • RELAY for LIFE 2016

     Mother Nature gave participants in the 2016 American Cancer Society Relay for Life a perfect night.

    After last year’s weather forced the major fund-raiser indoors, Saturday was perfect for the event, which was held at North Bullitt High.

    A good crowd turned out to honor the survivors, the caregivers and those who passed away.

  • Eastside brings Annie to life in production

     MOUNT WASHINGTON-- It’s the show that started it all and, for some, it was the show that helped them end an era.

    Eastside Middle School recently performed “Annie Jr.”, a shorter version with less complex music of the ever-popular “Annie” play.

    The middle school drama club was led by Bullitt East students, who starred in their own production of Annie Jr. as middle schoolers seven years ago.

  • MW Spring Festival 2016

     Friday night visitors to the festival enjoyed performances by the Mount Washington Middle concert band and the Crossroads Elementary “Pirates! The Musical” cast.

    During the chillier Saturday, performers included Kristen Nicole, Kim Brown and the Mighty Worshippers and Tom Wietecha, along with two showings of the live shoot-out performed by the Cowboy Posse, presented by Schmid Funeral Home.

    Visitors also saw the Mountain City Cruisers Antique Car and Tractor show.

  • RELAY FOR LIFE set for this Saturday afternoon

     HEBRON ESTATES - “The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day.”

    Neither Dr. Seuss nor the Bullitt County Relay for Life committee can guarantee good weather, but the committee can guarantee a fun time for cancer survivors, caregivers and supporters.

    The 2016 Relay for Life takes place Saturday, May 21, at the North Bullitt High School track. This year’s theme is based on Dr. Seuss: “Cancer - Not Here, Not There, Not Anywhere.”

  • Roby shows community how to be top leaders

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - It was a day where students were the leaders, leading the leaders throughout the school.

    Roby Elementary celebrated its first annual Leadership Day, an opportunity to showcase the school along with the impact of The Leader in Me program on the students.

    Principals, teachers, counselors and district staff members were invited to attend the event, including a Roby Rally, classroom and hall tours, a question/answer session and free breakfast.

  • Forum puts candidates on stage

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Yes, Bullitt County voters, there will be a primary election on Tuesday, May 17.

    With the absence of city races and no Republican primary for U.S. President on the ballot, there is not a lot of excitement.

    However, several of those candidates who will be on the ballot gathered to answer questions during a forum Thursday.

    Sponsored by the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce and The Pioneer News, candidates for local office were on stage at the Bullitt Central High auditorium.

  • National Day of Prayer

     The 65th annual National Day of Prayer was celebrated at the Shepherdsville City Park.

    A cold, chilly day could not stop over 100 people who gathered to listen to various speakers as they led prayers.
