Today's News

  • 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.

  • Retiring the Flag

    On Tuesday, Nov. 25, Boy Scout Troop 686 held a flag retirement ceremony on the grounds of Cedar Grove United Methodist Church.

    The flag that was retired had been presented to the troop by the church on Sunday, Nov. 9.

  • 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.

  • FOP secretary suspended after arrest

    LOUISVILLE - An officeholder with the Bullitt County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 42 has been suspended after being arrested on drug charges Friday night in Jefferson County.

    Vincent Lee Redemann, 24, of Shepherdsville, was charged with possession of a controlled substance (cocaine), possession of drug paraphernalia and having expired license tags after a routine traffic stop on Preston Highway.

    A passenger, Elizabeth N. Ogle, 30, of Clermont, was also arrested for giving a false name or address and having an open alcoholic container.

  • An emotional season ends with it all left on the field

    LOUISVILLE - Football is often a game of inches.

    Those inches affect games, seasons and state championships. Just ask the Bullitt East Chargers.

    In a classic contest on Saturday in the Class 4-A Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the outcome was not decided until the last second. Two teams played hard and two teams left it all on the field.

    When the clock ticked to :00, Bell County just happened to have a 15-13 lead.

    It’s not always what you get out of an endeavor that shapes your life, but what you put into it.
