  • Thank to Class of 1964

     I am writing to thank the 1964 Shepherdsville High School graduating class for their donations to the moving and restoring of the Bowman Valley School project.

    Please continue to support as we prepare to move the school by year’s end.

    Send tax deductible donations to Bowman Valley School Project, P.O. Box 1714, Shepherdsville, Ky., 40165.

  • Vote for Faith Portman

     Faith Portman has served the citizens well as a city council member, and has been a strong voice for all the citizens in Shepherdsville.

    She not only has great qualifications to be our next mayor and has a vision of what this city needs to make Shepherdsville a thriving city.

    She will have a strong fiscal plan to cut waste and improve conditions where spending has been running rapid. She will put into place the necessary changes that effects our every day lives.

  • Leaders need integrity

     I greatly appreciated the information presented by city employee Chuck Keith in the Sept. 10 issue of The Pioneer News.

    I, for one, am exhausted by the “good ole’ boy system” that seems to run so rampant in this county both politically and legally. Every citizen should be held accountable equally, fairly and appropriately regardless of who they know, how much they have or how much money they have.

  • Thanks to sponsors

     On behalf of The Mended Hearts Inc. Kentuckiana Chapter 11, we thank all the sponsors, donors, volunteers, and 52 golfers who participated in our Inaugural Golf Scramble.  The event was Wednesday, September 3, 2014, at the Heritage Hill Golf Club in Shepherdsville.

    As our excitement of our event begins to fade, it is only natural that we reflect on the event and those who helped us achieve success.  Your participation played a sufficient role in our results and for that we are grateful.

  • Be CASA volunteer

     In 2009, Kentucky led the nation in child abuse related fatalities.

    By 2012, Kentucky reported the highest rate of child victims of all states in the union.

    Bullitt County has unfortunately had its fair share of contribution toward those statistics, with over 400 children in the system.

    CASA is approaching its 10th anniversary of advocating for these children, fallen victim to abuse and neglect.

  • Healthy school lunches

     With the new school year, parents’ attention is turning to school lunches.

    Traditionally, USDA had used the National School Lunch Program as a dumping  ground for surplus meat and dairy commodities. Children consumed animal fat  and sugary drinks, to the point where one-third have became overweight or  obese. Their early dietary flaws became lifelong addictions, raising their  risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

  • AARP not involved

     A recent advertisement placed in this newspaper by the Committee to Elect Depp E. Rasner II associated AARP 50+ with a Rasner sponsored event in the Mount Washington Senior Center.

    AARP did not authorize the ad from Committee to Elect Depp E. Rasner II that mentions AARP and did not participate in its production. AARP is a 501©(4) organization that does not endorse candidates or make contributions to political campaigns or candidates.

  • Thank to Pioneer News

     Thanks for the nice send-off you guys at The Pioneer News gave me when I retired.

    I have such fond memories of my 25-plus years at the paper. We had good times and bad times but we all went through it together. Sometimes is seemed like we were more like family than co-workers. You are all special to me.

    Thanks Linda and Patty from Central Office for coming for my retirement party. It meant a lot to me.

  • Does our flag still fly?

     On July 4, Hal Lindsey made a guest talk about whether our flag was still flying. He mentioned about our first president who were Christians, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Our nation was founded on the Bible.

  • Schools are safe

     This letter is in response to the letter to the editor that appeared in the July 16 edition of the Pioneer News regarding the new firewall at Bullitt Central High School and is meant to clear up any possible misconceptions regarding the safety of our school facilities, especially Bullitt Central High School. 

    The questions regarding the firewall simply concerned what we believed was an oversight in the engineer’s original design of the new firewall which led to a change order.
