Today's Features

  •  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.

  • 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.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE - Students from Eastside Middle School gave a local organization something to cheer about.

    Members of the Eastside Cheerleading squad organized a schoolwide donation drive for HOPE (Helping Out People Everywhere) in Bullitt County, an organization dedicated to assisting homeless community members.

    The cheerleaders delivered over 1,500 items to HOPE officials at their new resource center at St. Aloysius Catholic Church.

  •  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.

  •  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.”

  •  A great group of volunteers from the Sabert Corporation in Hillview came out to the Active Heroes military family retreat center on Friday, April 22.

    Even though the conditions were less than superb, several volunteers showed up to work. The group came to volunteer on Earth Day, so they focused on a project that involved helping the environment.

  •  Bullitt Central High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) had two teams earn First Place in the Kentucky FBLA tournament.

    Senior Thomas Curtsinger was awarded First Place in the category of Personal Finance.

    Junior Noah Fleitz and senior Sydney Shepherd took Fourth Place for Webpage Design. Noah also secured a Fifth Place trophy for Networking Concepts.

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

    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.

  •  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.

  •  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.
