  • For a better place to live, you must get involved in your community

     We have an opportunity today to bring The Pioneer News into the homes of each student in the Bullitt County Public School System.

    We thank superintendent Keith Davis for that opportunity.

    You will notice a larger than normal number of school-related stories and pictures.

    With nearly two dozen public school facilities, the opportunity is endless when thinking about activities which are going on.

    I thought I would take a little space today and talk about two things - the school system and The Pioneer News.

  • Can a word really drive someone crazy?

     I guess we’ve always had certain buzz words that meant something.

    As my age advances, I would rather think in the present.

    Maybe it is the age of texting where short messages like OMG or BTW have taken the art out of complete sentences.

    My newest word that just sends shivers down my spine is REALLY.

    It all depends on how you use the word, I guess.

    REALLY? That is that questioning by the other party into something you have said or done.

    REALLY! That is that sense of excitement over an action.

  • Ploetner retires her pen following years of taking down history of fiscal court

  • Local athletes fared well with college recruiters

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Without a doubt, this past school year produced a record number of local athletes signing to play college sports starting in the fall.

         How do I know it is a record number? Because we’re almost to the middle of July and I am still running the stories here in The Pioneer News and have been pretty much for the past six weeks or since the end of the baseball and softball season. At one point in early June, I had a list of 15 signing stories that had been collected and not yet put in the paper.

  • Time to put all differences to side to progress

      Black and white. Vertical and horizontal. Republican and Democrat. Girls and boys. Progress and regression. Teamwork and individualism. Success and failure.

  • Movie, writing inspires me to follow news career

     I blame my interest in journalism on one thing, “All the President's Men.” Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman are the leads in the movie. They star as Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein respectively, The Washington Post reporting duo that uncovered the Watergate Scandal, and as a result, made journalism history.During my freshman year Introduction to Journalism class at Bullitt East High School, we watched the movie and I remember being fascinated by the work Woodward and Bernstein did.
