  • BBB Warns Consumers of 4th of July Scams

     

    It’s time celebrate the big Red, White, and Blue – Independence Day! However, with the 4th of July, and any other holiday, scam artists will try to take advantage of you and ruin your holiday plans.

    BBB wants you to be independent of the most common 4th of July scams and offers tips on how to protect yourself.

     

  • Supreme Court made right call on smoking ban

     There’s nothing like a massive sinkhole opening up and swallowing eight prized sports cars at the National Corvette Museum to increase ticket sales. Attendance at the Bowling Green attraction is up by as much as 70 percent during some recent months compared to a year ago.

    And, there’s nothing like a ruling by the Kentucky Supreme Court on issues even remotely related to smoking bans to stir the passions of a commonwealth raised on tobacco.

  • What will the final six months bring to county?

     At the first of each year, people like to prognosticate on what will happen for the new year.

    Sometimes those predictions are accurate. Sometimes they are not.

    Now that we’ve cut out the first six months of 2014, maybe we can sharpen our scope and see what happens for the final half-dozen months.

    First, we have the election fields narrowed down with a flurry of primary races decided in May.

    It was the first time there were more Republican primary races than Democratic contests in Bullitt County history.

  • Best of Paul Coyle

     This Coyle's Corner, originally published June 30, 2010, was a classic Coyle tongue-and-cheek look at politics in the media, focusing on an Independence Day visit by Rand Paul to Bullitt County.

    The Pioneer News wishes everyone a fun and safe Independence Day weekend and holiday.

  • BC and NB teams eligible for both LIT events in 2015

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – We are now firmly in the ‘dead period.’

         Fortunately, as of today, there is no word of any vampires, ghosts or zombies walking through any of our athletic facilities.

         The ‘dead period’ is the creation of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. It is a two-week period from June 25 to July 9 in which high school coaches and athletic facilities and equipment cannot be in use.

  • Fox Chase good people

     The Fox Chase Mayor’s resignation statement was not only unnecessary but untrue. The current council members are well respected, active members of the community.

  • Safe Fourth of July

     The 4th of July is fast approaching and long with it comes fireworks. Although they are an integral part of this wonderful celebration and everyone enjoys a good show, please keep in mind that a lot of people have jobs they have to get up early for, children that need rest and animals that re terrified by the sounds. Not everyone enjoys hearing or seeing them for days on end until the wee hours of the morning. Please keep this in mind and be respectful of your neighbors and others in your community. 

    Have a Happy & Safe 4th of July!
