  • Start time looks safe for 2015-16 but group seeks input from board

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Any fear that the current schedule for start times in the Bullitt County Public School System  is changing next fall should be eliminated.

    A committee looking at making recommendations to the Bullitt County School Board will meet on April 13 during the monthly work session.

    At that time, the committee will discuss some of its findings and then seek guidance from board members.

    There is a possibility that the study will cease at that point.

    A recent survey open to the public produced over 6,500 responses. 

  • Oops, stuff happens. Second season on Tuesday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Oops.

    Sometimes the timing is just not right in a twice weekly newspaper.

    That was certainly true in Monday’s edition of The Pioneer News as the second page of the sports section had the quarter-page advertisement for the pre-sale of the book that the Cats’ Pause publication was selling about the University of Kentucky’s ‘remarkable’ basketball season.

  • East splits games in Kentucky

      MOUNT WASHINGTON – Before heading out for their annual spring break trip to Florida, the Bullitt East Chargers split a pair of baseball games early last week, beating Southern 16-0 before falling at Christian Academy 6-0 a day later.

    A game on Thursday against a visiting team from Wisconsin was rained out.

    Competing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Florida, on the property of Walt Disney World, the red and gold got the week off on the right foot on Sunday, beating Passaic Valley High School out of New Jersey by a 6-1 count.

  • North continues to play well with 5-4 win at Male

     LOUISVILLE -- It was the team’s only game of the week but it was an important one.

    The North Bullitt Eagles went to Male High on Tuesday to battle on of the region’s perennial powerhouses.

    And the team came home with an impressive 5-4 victory.

    But while it may have been the first Eagle victory over the Bulldogs in recent history, Wise was impressed that the post-game celebration was nothing out of the ordinary.

  • Aged stories get some closure with mixed results

     Time goes quickly…most of the time.

    If you are around long enough, you have the opportunity to witness a lot of things.

    Unfortunately, there is seldom anything positive that results from these long term events.

    The most notable example is the latest resolution of the Jessica Dishon murder.

    In looking around the pool of reporters sitting in the jury box during the final sentencing of Stanley Dishon, I realized that I may have been the lone media person who covered the events from the very first day of the search.

  • Mt. Washington wants to get rid of eyesores

    Negligent abandoned property owners—Mount Washington wants you out.

    At a recent city council meeting, the council further discussed instituting an abandoned property ordinance to help with forgotten, unkempt properties through town.

    Mayor Barry Armstrong said, “Everybody is blighted by (the abandoned properties) but they're using it as a tax right off.”

    The city is modeling its ordinance after one used in Hodgenville.

  • Hebron Estates commission to take spring break for April mtg.

    HEBRON ESTATES - Bullitt County Public School students won't be the only ones taking a Spring Break this year.

                The Hebron Estates City Commission postponed its next regularly-scheduled meeting, which fell on April 7, the Tuesday of Spring Break week.

  • Numbers game to be job one at North

    HEBRON ESTATES-- In Adam Billings' first season as the head coach at Elizabethtown High School, in 2011, the Panthers were pretty much down right horrible.
        That Class 3-A Elizabethtown team failed to win a game and were outscored by an average of 45 points each Friday night. That happens when you have just 35 players in your program.

  • Adam Billings takes over NB football program

    HEBRON ESTATES-- Ten days ago, Adam Billings was not even aware that the head football coaching position was open at North Bullitt.
        Less than a week later, after a whirlwind romance, Billings was hired last Wednesday as the sixth head coach to lead the Eagle program over the last 39 years.
        Billings, who grew up in Bullitt County and played in the Cedar Grove Vikings' organization, replaces Brett Newton who stepped down last month after coaching the Eagles for the past 18 seasons.
