  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON — The day was a long one coming, but the skate park honoring Prescott Lee Goodman is finally open.

    Family, friends, coworkers, council members and community members filled the Mount Washington City Park last Tuesday for the chance to witness the official opening of the facility.

  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- There is a manufacturing crisis in Kentucky.

    While area manufacturing was an $11 billion business in the area, there was a problem.

    Finding skilled and willing workers was difficult and it was putting local manufacturers in dire straits.

    The Bullitt County Public School System, with its mandate to prepare its students for life -- whether it is through college or through a career -- was doing just that.

  •  MOUNT WASHINGTON— Crossroads Elementary set sail for the seas in “Pirates! The Musical.”

    Directed by new music teacher Kristopher Hunt, the show followed a ship of singing pirates on their journey to deal with a stowaway. The King of the High C’s, with the help of characters like Bluebeard, Greenbeard, Yellowbeard and the No Beards chorus, taught the stowaway what it takes to be a pirate before sending her to be with the prisoners below deck.

  •   HEBRON ESTATES - A teacher is a teacher the world over.

    A local educator, hoping to see all teachers find similar success through shared platforms, ideas and resources, travelled to Africa during Spring Break to kickstart that success.

    Freedom Elementary instructor Lauren Vining co-founded and established Pink Elephant, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating, mentoring and supporting teachers worldwide, especially in disadvantaged communities. 

    “We want to connect all teachers in a global support system,” she said.

  •  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.

  •  Garrett Jones, a sophomore in the Bullitt Advanced Math and Science (BAMS) program, will attend The Craft Academy at Morehead State University this fall.

    He is the third student from Bullitt County and the second from Bullitt East High School to gain admission into the academy. Sebastian Kaufman is completing his junior year.

    “I’m pretty excited,” Garrett said. He learned about his selection from an unfamiliar caller ID and then wondering who he knew at Morehead that would be calling him.

  •  Ishika Patel, a sophomore in the Bullitt Advanced Math and Science (BAMS) program, will attend The Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics at Morehead State University this fall.

    She and fellow BAMS sophomore Garrett Jones are the only two Bullitt County students selected to the Craft Academy this year and the first from the BAMS program.

    Ishika received the telephone notification as her mother, Kamini I. Patel, stood beside her.
