  • YOUR suggestion box is now open

     Here’s a new edition that will run occasionally in The Pioneer News.

    The Suggestion Box will be open to the public to give ideas. But we don’t want suggestions that my neighbor has a junk car next door. The suggestions are to be what are some ideas to help the entire community.

    We will pass those suggestions on to the proper agencies and try to do a little tracking on whether anything is done. Once again, these are to help benefit the community, in general.

  • Cities need to watch out in Frankfort

      Watch out local officials. Discussions in Frankfort seem to be in favor of taking over city government in Louisville.

    The talk is to limit the numbers of terms a candidate can serve as mayor. That would be two.

    Also, the talk is that if there is a vacancy for mayor, the governor would have the ability to fill that position.

    The governor has always had the power to replace county officials. Now, it is getting a little deeper into the cities.

  • Old Business

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Today is another edition of an occasional column that I’ve called OLD BUSINESS.

    Why?

    Because we seem to forget as elected officials things what we’ve talked about. In other words, I’ll keep certain topics on the list until something is done.

    In the inaugural list, what about:

    *The Bullitt County Sanitation District is made up of three board members appointed by fiscal court.

  • State Bowling Tourney turns disappointing for local entries

      LEXINGTON – It was unfortunately a short visit to Lexington for the local bowlers who had qualified for last week’s Kentucky State Bowling Tournament at Collins Eastland Lanes.

    On Thursday, North Bullitt senior Errik Grant, coming off a herculean effort to finish as the runner-up in the Region Three Tournament a week earlier, struggled to find that magic at his first state meet and did not advance out of the qualifying round of the Boys’ Individual Tournament.

  • East wins double OT thriller against Fairdale

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Rallying from a 53-41 deficit after three quarters, the Bullitt East Chargers pulled victory from the jaws of defeat on Thursday as the red and gold defeated visiting Fairdale 91-88 in a double overtime marathon.

    Bullitt East despite the fact that the team is going through another serious bout of injuries and illness. Against Fairdale, seniors Konnor Polson (mono), Derrick Donigan (hamstring) and Grant Skaggs (sprained ankle) either didn’t even dress for the contest or were very limited in their participation in the game.

  • Big second quarter powers Lady Eagles’ victory

     HEBRON ESTATES – A 25-5 surge in the second quarter was more than enough for the North Bullitt Lady Eagles on Tuesday as the green and gold rolled past visiting Marion County 69-40 on Senior Night.

    The team has just one senior, Lauren Deel, and she led all scorers in the game with 18 points.

  • Luttrell’s basket at :03 lifts Eagles past E’town 45-43

     HEBRON ESTATES – A short jumper in the lane from junior Peyton Luttrell as the clock ticked to :03 helped overcome a few North Bullitt miscues moments earlier and gave the Eagles a 45-43 win over visiting Elizabethtown on Tuesday.

    After eight straight losses, North Bullitt head coach Korey Craddock will take a win anyway he can get it.

    “It’s always good to get a win on Senior Night,” the coach said a few moments after the game.

  • Hardin Co. resident among individuals charged with counterfeit credit cards

     LOUISVILLE – A Hardin County, Kentucky resident and others, were arraigned in United States District Court today, before Magistrate Judge Dave Whalin, on multiple charges of possessing and using counterfeit credit cards and possessing the equipment to make the fraudulent cards announced United States Attorney John E, Kuhn, Jr.

  • East’s Foster heading to Eastern to play soccer

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – It took a little longer than expected for the obvious to happen, but finally Bullitt East senior soccer standout Christian Foster was able to put pen to paper and sign a national letter-of-intent to play at the next level for the Eastern Kentucky Lady Colonels.

    It was earlier believed that Foster could sign in the fall during the early signing period, but a few days before that, the senior and her coaches learned that soccer players had to wait until the winter signing period. No problem. Foster never wavered from her commitment.

  • Be ready when fishing opportunities arise

     FRANKFORT – Planning a fishing trip more than a couple days ahead of time can be a gamble in late winter when the weather is a mixed bag and the favorable conditions here today may be gone tomorrow.

    With some advance preparation, you can be ready to grab what you need and go when that friend calls at daybreak or the impulse strikes and the schedule allows for a last-minute trip.

    Performing regular maintenance on your reels can prevent catastrophic problems or costly repairs down the road.
