  • Davis brings same message to single audience

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - Over the course of any given month, school superintendent Keith Davis would regularly have meetings with various groups.

        During his gatherings with the faculty, classified staff, site-based members and others, Davis’ message on the state of the system would be pretty similar.

        While disseminating the information is a key part of his role, Davis realized that much of his time was spent in meetings and not out in the schools.

  • Zoning sought for manufacturing plant

        HILLVIEW - Planners will be asked to begin a process that could eventually land over 200 manufacturing jobs in Bullitt County.

        A special meeting of the Bullitt County Joint Planning Commission will be held on Thursday to discuss zoning requests for two tracts of property at the northwest quadrant of Interstate 65 and Brooks Road.

        One tract of land would be property owned by Willabrook Inc., which is part of the Williams family property.

  • Foster brings leadership skills to Bernheim job

    CLERMONT - From coaching football to leading a school community, both positions require a lot of leadership skills.

    Willie Foster now has the opportunity to use his on-field abilities in the classroom.

    The former Bullitt Central assistant principal relocated to Bernheim Middle School, taking over as its new principal.

    Foster, a Bullitt East graduate and former football player, brings nine years of education experience to Bernheim. He fills the vacancy left by Bob Bright, who took another administrative position over the summer.

  • Writer still likes holiday games

        I still enjoy celebrating holidays, so much that I always supply a list each month at www.pioneernews.net.

        That way Bullitt County can share the experience with me.

        One of the bigger holidays, Labor Day, is approaching, which has me wondering what everyone will be doing over the extended weekend.

  • Apathy or laziness? Which is really appropriate in local voting, filings

        How important is the tea party movement in the United States?

        And how much impact will it make in Bullitt County elections?

        Maybe Bullitt County voters need a good dose of strong tea on election day.

  • Fox takes over Lady Eagle program that is rebuilding

        HEBRON ESTATES - In recent seasons, the North Bullitt Lady Eagles have fielded relatively strong soccer teams.

        What the green and gold haven’t been able to do is find consistency in the coaching ranks. Melissa Fox is the new head coach, becoming the fourth different person to handle those duties over the past five years. The one positive is that Fox was the assistant coach last season so she has worked with many of the players on the team this fall.
