  • The allure of the 25-cent ice cream cones was too much for Olivia Cunningham to resist at the 8th annual Bullitt Blast, held on July 4 at Paroquet Springs Conference Center.

    The rains couldn’t keep away a large crowd which showed up for over six hours of activities.

    There was music, rides, cars, military equipment, animals and the finale - fireworks.

    See page B-10 for a look at the fireworks. And look in next week’s edition of The Pioneer News for pictures from the other events of the day.

    The event included Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson and Todd Leatherman, Executive Director of Consumer Protection with the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office, as featured speakers.

  • NICHOLS - Donna LaFountain is now doing some double duty.

    The principal of Nichols Elementary is now also serving the role as director of the county’s pre-school program.

    Superintendent Keith Davis said it would not be a position where LaFountain splits the duties 50/50. Instead, she will spend whatever time is required for each of the positions.

    When the pre-school coordinator’s position became open, Davis said he looked at ways to fill the slot.

    “I think we have a good solution,” said Davis.
