  • Local woman survives another type of cancer

     MOUNT WASHINGTON - Stephaine Raymond is 30 years old and a cancer survivor. 

    But not the kind we typically hear about.

    The resident of eastern Bullitt County was diagnosed with endometrial or uterine cancer two years ago.

    “Most young women think they can’t get it because it’s usually found in women 55 and older, but a lot of younger women are getting it now,” she said.

  • A little spooky script for your Halloween season

     These days every time something takes place it is immediately shared throughout the world at such a frenzy that people freak out.

    Topics such as ISIS or ebola put society in an immediate state of shock, worry and panic.

    As a change of pace, it’s time to get back to simpler times. I have again searched around locally for good old-fashioned ideas to use as topics for scary Halloween movies.

    And without further adieu, here’s this year’s list, presented as always in B-movie promo fashion, of Halloween movie ideas.

  • North advances, but BE and BC eliminated

      HEBRON ESTATES – For the second time in three seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles advanced to the semi-finals of the Sixth Region Volleyball Tournament, but the reward is a daunting one.

    After winning the 24th District title a week earlier, coach Cecilia Boston’s team was rewarded with a home match on Monday against Doss, a team they had defeated during the regular season. The Lady Dragons put up a fight, but North Bullitt won 25-20, 25-18, 25-19.

  • Mercy gets past East...again

     HIGHVIEW - Mercy Academy is where Bullitt East soccer coach Steve Gentry wants to program to be.

    However, that doesn’t come without a lot of work.

    For yet another season, the Mercy Jaguars ended the post-season for the Lady Chargers with a 3-0 victory in the Sixth Region title game on Saturday evening.

    “I thought we came out a little flat tonight,” said Gentry. “I find that hard to believe you come out flat in a regional final but I think you have to give Mercy a lot of credit for that.”


     The Pioneer News congratulates everyone in Bullitt County who voted on Nov. 4.

    Those votes have determined the next leaders of our community.

    We salute the volunteer poll workers, as well as the employees of the Bullitt County Clerk's Office for their efforts.

    Finally, we thank all the men and women who have served the community as our leaders over the past administrations for offering your efforts.

    The totals below represent the unofficial results for Bullitt County only. State races listed below only show Bullitt County totals.

    FERN CREEK--Fern Creek resident Nick O'Bryan's new painting on his garage has been getting him a lot of attention on Brentlinger Lane.

    "People come by waving and blowing their horns when they see the painting," he said.

    A longtime Louisville fan, O'Bryan said the idea just came to him one day and he asked his friend Kenny Lanham to paint it.

    He said it took a couple of  days and it still needs a few more touch-ups, but he's satisfied with the end result.

  • Mercy does what Mercy does in final

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – There are dreams and then there is reality.

         The Bullitt East Lady Chargers may have dreamed of knocking off state volleyball power Mercy in the 24th District final on their home court, but then reality set in. Facing the top-ranked team in the country for much of this season, the Lady Chargers had little chance of winning, falling 25-8, 25-8, 25-10.
