  • Thanks to Frisch's

     We the Shepherdsville High School Class of 1966 wants to thank the Frisch’s Restaurant in Shepherdsville for letting us have our class meetings there.

    There would be from 12-15 people at the meetings each time we met. Also we want to thank the waiters for their help. 

    Also we want to thank the Pioneer News for putting the meetings in the paper.

    God Bless you at Frisch’s and the Pioneer News.

    Mrs. Barbara Webb

  • Prostate Cancer Month

     I want to thank the Bullitt County Fiscal Court for proclaiming September as Bullitt County Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The proclamation is important because, as estimated by The National Cancer Institute, 26,000 men will die in 2016 from prostate cancer and nearly 200,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year. One in seven men will have prostate cancer sometime in their lives.

  • Chapeze family big part of local history

     Chapeze is located on the Long Lick Creek in Bullitt County, Kentucky.  

    It is a small village by the name Chapeze Station and is twenty-four miles from Louisville, Kentucky.  Chapeze is one of the oldest stations in the county.  A land grant was given by Governor Benjamin Harrison of Virginia to Peter Shepherd and his son Adam who were surveyors in 1782.

  • Constitution Week honored by Salt River NSDAR chapter

     “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

    These words, writting 229 years ago, are the Preamble to our Constitution.

  • Webber joins Bevin in signing of HB 183

     On Aug. 5, state Rep. Russell Webber joined Gov. Matt Bevin for the ceremonial signing of House Bill 183.

    The legislation created the new Kentucky Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Certification program.

    Webber and Bevin were joined by other intersted parties at the ceremony, which was held in Frankfort.

  • Pay attention to emergency sirens

      Hey Bullitt County drivers, let’s chat for a second.

    I know I’ve only had my driver’s license for less than 10 years and that there are far more experienced people than me on the roads. However, I’m convinced there must have been some miscommunication when I read my driver’s manual and took my test than when the rest of the county took theirs.

  • Childhood poverty is an issue

     As a school district and community, we believe that all children can learn. 

    As Americans, we stand for equality of opportunity - everyone should have access to the American Dream. 

    Sure, most of us realize that those with wealthy or connected families sometimes get breaks the rest of us don’t get, but that is the relative few.

    Work hard, study hard, make your own luck, take advantage of the blessings of being born in the USA.
