  • Calendar should alleviate many of the concerns

     They served a valuable purpose, although many might beg to differ.

    But the concerns over early release days for Bullitt County Public School students will soon be a thing of the past.

    Instead, students will have the opportunity to enjoy several full days at home as the 2014-15 calendar will not have early release.

    Educators feels that allowing teachers a full day of work each month is more valuable as the district strives to move forward.

  • Must watch for signs of cyber attacks on your accounts

     In December, Target disclosed one of the biggest retail cyberattacks in history.

    Consumers across the country learned that, during the peak of the holiday shopping season, hackers carried out a massive data breach on the U.S. retailer, stealing roughly 40 million credit and debit card records and compromising the personal information, including names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses, of 70 million Target shoppers.

  • Thanks to Santa's Helpers

     Pioneer Village Police Department Santa’s Helpers would like to personally thank all those business, and individuals, as well as Operation Santa from Hillview who supported our efforts to provide a wonderful Christmas to several families in our area.

  • Thanks from CASA

     As they have for the past five years, Susan Bradbury and First Federal Banks have worked hard to make Christmas 2013 a good memory for many Bullitt County children involved with the CASA program. These are children in the court system due to dependency, abuse and neglect and no fault of their own.

    With the help of the First Federal Angel tree, community members are able to pick an angel (CASA child) to buy Christmas for. Through these efforts over 70 children received a Christmas they would not have had otherwise.

    Thanks so much!
