  • Preston, Chargers experience wild ride

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - For most football teams that reach a championship game in Kentucky, the season is pretty much smooth sailing with only a minor hiccup or bump in the road along the way.

    Not for the Bullitt East Chargers in 2008. This season was one wild ride for the red and gold. This was a roller-coaster ride that was Badder than the Beast.

    Bullitt East did not start the season well. In fact, the red and gold had a losing record midway through the regular season. There were times that the team just didn’t play that well.

  • Failed conversion at :10 ends Charger rally

    LOUISVILLE - The Bullitt East Chargers didn’t quit when the season started with just two wins in the first six contests.

    The Chargers certainly didn’t quit at the end of the season, battling until the final 10 seconds on Saturday in the Class 4-A Commonwealth Gridiron Championship game.

    The outcome was a 15-13 loss to undefeated Bell County, but this Bullitt East squad left an indelible mark on its community with its heart and passion.

  • Tough losses dampen Eagles' holiday spirit

    BARDSTOWN - A tough setback in the middle of three games just before Christmas for the North Bullitt Eagles made it a long tournament for the green and gold in the Bearno’s Holiday Classic at Bethlehem High School.

    The Eagles, who have won just once this season in seven games, opened against the host team and playing without Travis Ridley the green and gold got off to a horrible start and never got back in the game as they lost 64-48.

  • The Art of MURDER

    Who killed Pierre Painter?

    That was the task at hand during the fourth annual Bullitt County Arts Gala.

    The audience had an opportunity to vote on its Artist of the Year but little did they know that their dinner would include MURDER.

    Playwright Bill Breuer provided the script for the cast  and the murder mystery was a hit for the crowd gathered at the Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

    Local artists also had their works on display for sale prior to the dinner.

  • HOLIDAYS - DECEMBER 2008

    Dear Santa,

    I'm at work on Christmas Eve. Everyone has left except me and Mr. Barr. Get him something nice this year.

    I've tried to be good. I've even put in extra effort on The Pioneer News Web site. I'll try to keep my list small:

    It's my Grandma's 90th Christmas. Give her something nice to enjoy it, even if it's just family visits and a free subscription to The Pioneer News.

    Get something really cool for all my nieces and nephews, unless they were bad. My siblings might endorse coal and switches if you feel they are necessary.

  • Thanksgiving Helpers

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – Dollar General Store in Shepherdsville Square and the Bernheim chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation once again combined forces to provide a Thanksgiving food basket for 40 families in the county.

  • PV Police hope to draw attention

    PIONEER VILLAGE - In an effort to reduce accidents and citations for violations, the Pioneer Village Police Department has created an interesting reminder to motorists.

    At the corner of Preston Highway and John Harper Highway, a wrecked vehicle has been placed along the side of the road.

    The project is a partnership with the state  transportation cabinet, which owns the property.

    Pioneer Village police chief  Dale Elliott said the wrecked vehicle was donated by  Troy’s Wrecker Service and Sign Solutions II donated the banner.

  • LJ pre-schoolers find book buddies valuable

    LEBANON JUNCTION — Every Thursday Lindy Meyer’s Lebanon Junction Elementary fourth graders open the door to a classroom full of preschoolers and their eyes light up.

    The bond between the two classes is instantly recognizable.

    With story books in hand, the fourth graders quickly break off into pairs and locate their “book buddy” — a special preschooler with whom they will share the next 20 minutes reading and bonding.

  • Tourist group to step up its enforcement on late taxes

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - When someone eats a meal in the city limits of Shepherdsville, they are paying an additional 2 percent as part of the way to fund the operation of the Paroquet Springs Conference Centre and the tourist commission.

    However, some businesses have not always paid that tax as required.

    Enforcement on the collection of the food tax falls to Shepherdsville city government, which had to allow the measure to be adopted.
