  • A unique Derby in Bullitt County

        SHEPHERDSVILLE - The chill in the air and recent rains haven't chased away the multitudes at Mike Farner Downs for the annual Bullitt County Derby.

        Part of the large crowd is credited to the pre-race card, including primary races featuring enormous fields. Those results will appear in a later edition of The Pioneer News.

  • Graduation day arrives again

    In just a few days, graduation ceremonies will be held for local high school students.

    Over 600 youngsters will graduate at the four high schools.

    Each year, their future seems to be a bit more clouded. This one is no different.

    Those attending college will face higher tuition costs and less scholarship money.

    And if they attend college, what subject should they major in?

    The job prospects for college graduates is still dim in many fields.

    But if you don’t attend college, what does your future hold?

  • Forget the heat; don’t forget to visit the Fair

    OK, so it is a little warm. OK, it’s a lot warm.

    And, yes, it is a bit muggy. We give...it’s a lot muggy.

    So it put a few more curls in Dana Winchell’s hair on Monday night. It still didn’t distract from her beauty and grace in winning the Miss Bullitt County Fair crown.

    Forget all the weather-related excuses and be sure to make a visit to the 35th annual Bullitt County Fair.

    Once a year, the fairgrounds comes alive with rides, shows, pageants and food. You can throw in a few politicians, if you like.

  • Did lot of people forget to come out to the party?

        Since this is being written several hours before the polls are closed, why not look back at some of the events of the past several months on the campaign trail.

        And since I don’t know the outcome, some of the things I may think are weird, could actually turn out to be productive for a particular candidate.

        With time ticking down until the polls close, let us get begin.

        First, has there ever been such a quiet election season, especially during a countywide election?
