  • Post Office must fix woes

     The Post Office would have made over 400,000 dollars in 2012, but for a death stroke bill passed in December 2006 which mandated that within 10 years the Post Office had to pony up 75 years in advance for all the healthcare benefits of all the postal retirees. This burden cost the Post Office over 6 billion dollars a year. That kind of burden would kill any department of business, especially when it is regulated by a postal commission.

  • Remember to say thanks

     Many times in my life I have failed to stop what I was doing long enough to tell someone thanks for a job well done. Today I am putting things aside to stop and commend Doris Owen not only for her many years of service as Administrative Assistant to the former directors of E.D.A. She worked for many years and reached the point of wishing to retire. Later when Mr. Faust resigned the Board requested Doris to consider coming back to work which she was kind enough to do.

  • Addressing statements

     Recent paid advertising in the Pioneer News directed at the current elected administration of the City of Shepherdsville and the lack of a follow up inquire by the Pioneer News has prompted me to respond to the paid advertising. 

  • Support sheriff's efforts

     What Sheriff Dave Greenwell did in supporting a Merit System is a sure re-election back into the office that he holds and it should be.

    17 years ago, I worked as a Deputy Sheriff in Jefferson County, KY and I remember when James Vaughn became Sheriff and I saw people who had 15-18 years in Law Enforcement, lose their jobs because they were not on the right side of the political fence.

  • Fort Knox forgotten

     Our Federal Representatives are supposed to be aware of issues in our communities and advocate for us in Washington.

  • Thanks for work at park

     On behalf of myself and my family we would like to say thank you to the city of Shepherdsville’s Mayor Scott Ellis and a special thank you to council woman Faith Portman for approval to build the gazebo on 1st Street Park. We also would like to thank Claude Middleton with city works, Jonathan at Quality Stone and Ready Mix for the concrete, Don at DG Industries for all the steel parts needed and Eddie at Grandmas RV Park for the shrubs around the gazebo.

  • Schools making progress

     After reading a letter in the Forum in the Courier-Journal that stated “Bullitt County school system has not changed in the last 60 years,” I had to respond!

    I graduated from Bullitt County Schools in 1966. I received a BS from Eastern Kentucky University, a Masters in Education from U of L, and a Rank 1 in Administration and Supervision from Western Kentucky University. I spent 35 years as a teacher, principal and the Director of Transportation for Bullitt County so I am very familiar with the system.

  • Spring Festival thanks

     The Spring Festival Committee would like to thank the community for your support again this year. There are too many individuals, City Police and Fire Departments and School and companies to list that make this event possible.

  • Thanks to Boy Scout troop

     On behalf of myself Jimmy Waters and the community of Lebanon Junction I would like to recognize and thank the Boy Scout Troop 0685 for the group effort put forward on cleaning up and restoring a cemetery located at the corner of 139 Hillcrest Avenue, Lebanon Junction Family Cemetery of Stark’s and Thompson families.

    The Boy Scouts and family together cleaned both inside and outside of cemetery and reset headstones, cut trees, pained iron fence and built new benches on site for a complete makeover and a much needed restoration of the cemetery.
