  •     Kindergarten pre-registration for all Bullitt County elementary schools will be held on Friday, March 19, from 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.

        Register at your child’s home school. Those assigned to the new Crossroads Elementary in Mount Washington will register at the central office on Highway 44 in Shepherdsville.

        Bring a birth certificate, proof of residence or driver’s license. By the start of school, each child will need an immunization certificate, a health care examination and a Social Security card.

  •     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Do you know of a woman who deserves recognition but would rather stay in the background?

        The First Lady of Kentucky, Jane Beshear, and the women who serve in the Kentucky General Assembly would like to recognize your efforts.

        State Rep. Linda Belcher said there would be an opportunity in March to honor those women.

        Bullitt Countians can nominate a woman who does special work but might not be seen on the front pages of The Pioneer News or on the 11 p.m. news.

  •     Bullitt County has been chosen to receive $61,847.00 in Federal funds to supplement emergency food and shelter programs in the county.

        A Bullitt County Board, made up of local representatives, will determine how the funds awarded to the county are to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by Bullitt County service agencies.

  •     SHEPHERDSVILLE - A local company will help the Bullitt County History Museum purchase some much-needed computer equipment.

        And it was a suggestion of an employee that helped get the funding ball rolling.

        Stephanie Walls, solutions manager for Zappos.com off Cedar Grove Road, presented a check for $3,000 from the company’s charitable contribution fund.

        Employee Darrell Cruise has some connection with the history museum and knows the need for computers.

  • HEBRON ESTATES - Where there’s freedom, there’s hope.

    The Freedom Elementary community worked together raising $3,329.64 in donations for Haiti earthquake relief efforts.

    Freedom physical education instructor Susan Hatchett said the funding was distributed to the American Red Cross.

    The school had two special event days to collect funds, the first being Hats for Haiti. Hatchett said each student could wear a hat in school for a $1 donation.

    “We had some wild ones, too,” Hatchett said.

  • Friday night was an evening of fun for youngsters at Overdale Elementary as they spent time doing games and eating dinner while their parents may have teen out celebrating Valentine’s Day.

    While next door, the young at heart were celebrating Valentine’s Day with a dance at the Hillview Community Center.

  •     PIONEER VILLAGE - The Haiti earthquake relief efforts continue to receive assistance from individual Bullitt County Public Schools.

        Maryville and Overdale Elementary Family Resource Center coordinator Betty Marshall has encouraged donations at both of her schools, earning a final collection total near $900.

  • SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Multi-Purpose CAA has begun the “Crisis” portion of the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) that assists households in a heating crisis on January 4, 2010 and will end on March 31, 2010 or until funds are expended.

    The deepening of cold winter weather combined with rising utility costs leaves many households unable to fully meet heating bills or purchase sufficient bulk fuel to keep their families safe and warm.

    Your local Community Action Partnership (CAP) stands ready to help! 

  • There was plenty of dancing going on Saturday night at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre as the annual Valentine Gala hosted by the American Red Cross.

    The Wulfe Pack provided the music and the near-record crowd provided the entertainment on the dance floor.

    The event, which is a large fund-raiser for the Bullitt-Spencer County chapter, included a host of package winners.

    WLKY news anchor Rick VanHoose was the MC once again.
