  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Since the organization was chartered over 41 years ago, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5710 has been an active member of the community.

    Through the years, the Post and its Ladies Auxiliary have been known to provide many services to eligible veterans and their families over the years.

    A bump in the road was experienced earlier this year but new commander Jimmy Anderson sees a bright future of the organization.

  •   LEBANON JUNCTION -- Each Memorial Day, over 100 flags show up on the graves of veterans in the Lebanon Junction City Cemetery.

    Those flags are placed in love by members of the Veterans of Foreign War.

    “I really don’t think people know what we do, but they’re going to miss us when we’re gone,” commander Jimmy Reynolds said.

    The VFW Post 8293 serves not only Lebanon Junction, but surrounding areas such as Boston and Belmont.

  • BROOKS - Marvin Stewart was a well-respected leader at Brooks Elementary and within the surrounding community.

    Stewart served 12 years as Brooks principal during his long tenure within the Bullitt County Public Schools system.

    His commitment to educational excellence will continue at the new Brooks Elementary location, with the school library officially dedicated in his honor.

    Former and current Brooks staff members, administrators, and friends of the Stewart Family gathered for a special dedication ceremony at the library to commemorate the event.

  •  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.”

  •  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.

  •  CLERMONT - There’s more than one way to make a healthy walk even healthier.

    KentuckyOne Health and the Bullitt County Health Department joined forces with the Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest to present its first in a series of monthly Walk with a Doc events.

    Dr. Joseph Oropilla was the first scheduled doctor, enjoying the Nursery Loop while discussion neurology and other health topics with the 40 people in attendance. Oropilla even diagnosed a dog who attended the walk.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- It’s not the main event but rather a preliminary race to set up the battle in the fall general election.

    While many may not realize it, there will be a few races on the May 17 primary election ballot.

    To let the voters get a sense of where the candidates stand on the issues, the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce and The Pioneer News will host a special forum on Thursday, May 5.

    The forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Bullitt Central High School.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Around 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 16, Larry Hatfield knew he was in trouble.

    With cars and trucks lined up at Bullitt East High to drop off items for the county’s junk disposal day, Hatfield knew there was a problem.

    The dumpters on the site were full and there was a whole lot of junk left in line.

    With the dumpsters on a rotation and with another one not due immediately, Hatfield started to have haulers dump items on the ground next to the dumpsters.

  •  Spring break is behind us.

    That means it time to start thinking about summer day trips!

    We are fortunate to have many quality attractions within just a short drive from us.

    There are four that I recommend if you’re on a budget or have time constraints. 

    The Indianapolis Zoo is home to more than 320 species and 3,800 animals. I am impressed by their marine mammals – polar bear, walrus, seals, and sea lions.

  •  The Lincoln Heritage Boy Scout organization held its annual fund-raising dinner at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    Organizers were John Snider, Jose Cubero and Gary McGruder.

    John Asher of Churchill Downs was the guest speaker.

    This is a major fund-raiser each year for the Boy Scouts.
