• Thank you to everyone

      Our family would like to thank each and every one of you personally but fortunately with all the support from the community, I just don’t think it’s possible!

    We can’t express our gratitude for the overwhelming support our community has shown for Shawn.

  • Help right on target

     On behalf of the North Bullitt Archery Team, I would like to express my gratitude for the community’s support of the Eagle Fest, which was held on Saturday, March 14, at St. Aloysius gym.

    At the event, we had a date auction, a silent auction and live entertainment by Rock-Ola. Our goal was to raise $1,600 to purchase 10 new targets for the archers to use during practice.

  • Thank you to all

     Thank you does not cover the way we feel about the outpouring of love for Lawrence.

    To all friends and neighbors, we thank you. Special thanks to Donnie Snellen, Mike Spurlock and Kenny Holder. They’re like our brothers. 

    All of Lawrence’s buddies (there are too many to list), we thank you.

    We give much appreciation to Mark Williams, the Shepherdsville Police Department, the Hillview Police Department, Pioneer Village and the mayor. Special thanks to Bro. George Blevins, Bro. Jimmy and Martha, and Bro. Tim; we love you all.

  • Support education

     Thank you for the article you published on the Portable Planetarium at Maryville Elementary School. 

    Kaet Barron submitted the grant that was funded

    by the Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education. This is just one fine example of the invocative ideas our teachers have that was funded by this Foundation.

  • Meat-free in Lent is healthy, too

     This Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period before Easter, when many Christians abstain from animal foods in remembrance of Jesus’ 40 days of fasting in the desert before launching his ministry.

    But meat-free Lent is much more than a symbol of religious devotion to  Christ. It helps reduce the risk of chronic disease, environmental degradation, and animal abuse.

  • No rentals in subdivision

     I live in The Pointe subdivision and do not agree that homes should be rented or leased in our subdivision.

  • Commend medical, fire employees

     My husband, my sisters and I want to commend the personnel at Jewish South Medical Center, Bullitt County EMS, 911 Dispatch and Zoneton Fire Department for their professionalism over the last several months in responding to many 911 calls for my brother.

    The care and concern they gave my brother who ultimately passed away on Jan. 20, 2015, at Jewish South was comforting at such a traumatic time.

    They did everything possible to save him and support the family. 

  • Lemons not the answer

     It is extremely irresponsible for the Pioneer News to publish, almost uncritically, a claim that lemons prevent and possibly cure cancer. 

    I am talking about Jim Davidson’s column on page A-5 of the 02-11-2015 issue.

    Putting a disclaimer at the beginning and a short “the jury is still out” at the end of the column is NOT SUFFICIENT when you are printing a claim like that. 

  • Why new traffic light?

     I don’t understand why they put a traffic light at the intersection of Hebron and new Highway 61.

    There is not enough traffic on Hebron Lane to warrant this new light. It is too close to the traffic light at John Harper.

    I hope they are not considering  more traffic lights along the new Highway 61 from John Harper and Bells Mill Road.

  • Meeting experience

     Born & raised in the community, I decided to attend my first city council meeting, Jan. 12. Being a new year I was hoping the council would be united for the good of our citizens of Shepherdsville.

    Was I wrong. The mayor failed to introduce the new council members. Even after the invocation by Bro. Miller to pray for a new year and a unification to work together for the citizens of Shep.
