  • Best of Coyle: Back to School

     The Pioneer News welcomes all Bullitt County Public School students, faculty, administrators and staff back to school on August 6.

  • Safety advised as highways will be busy for holiday

      AAA projects 34.7 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the Labor Day holiday weekend, the highest volume for the holiday since 2008 and a 1.3 percent increase over 2013.

    Nearly 86 percent of travelers (29.7 million), including nearly 1.75 million in Kentucky and other East South Central states, will celebrate the holiday with a final road trip before summer comes to a close and children head back to school. The Labor Day holiday travel period is defined as Thursday, August 28 to Monday, September 1.

  • Why make visit to the clerk's office?
  • What’s the big debate to having a public forum?

      Incumbents uusally hate them. Challengers usually demand them.

    The great debate over the great debates.

    It is common during the political season for the discussion over the need or validity of debates to be waged.

    The interesting thing is that most people who have ever attended public forums - a kinder, more gentle version of a debate - already had their minds made up.

    It is up to the media to report what is said or not said at such an event and there is the hope that someone reads the account.

  • New year has started - expect great things to happen

     The beginning of the school year is upon us, and it is a good time to take stock of where we stand. 

    Before burying you under a bunch of statistics, I want to clearly state that our students are not made up of their test scores. 

    Not a week goes by that doesn’t bring individual and team success stories. 

  • Little of this and lot of that

      Can you believe that summer is over and school is back in session?

    It’s true.

    To get into the Back to School mood, I took a little trip back in history with a visit to The Campus Beautiful.

    For those Eastern Kentucky University grads, that is a familiar motto.

    I had not been back on the campus for over 25 years. A lot had changed but a lot remained the same.

    On a Saturday when few students are on campus, it was a pleasant stroll around the grounds.

  • BBB Hot Topics: August 2014

     Check out the latest scams and bad business in BBB’s August 2014 Hot Topics!

    1. Bogus Debt Collectors are calling local residents, pressuring them to “pay their debt.” These callers are extremely aggressive and threaten to file a lawsuit or get the police involved if victims do not pay immediately. Victims are asked to pay via Green Dot MoneyPak or by wire transfer.

  • Time to slow it down, pay more attention on road as school starts

     Believe it or not, classes will be starting for students in the Bullitt County Public School System next Wednesday.

    Just two months after classes dismissed in June, students, teachers, administrators, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and custodians are all back to work.

    For many, it has been a summer without a break.

    With this in mind, all those distracted drivers who are traveling too fast need to wake up.

    Put away the electronic devices and start paying attention to school buses on the road.
