  • Growing district has building pros, cons

     I have called Bullitt County home for nearly two decades and in that time, I have been privileged to witness a great deal of growth and progress in this community.

    Our student population has grown a little over 30 percent over that 20 year period to right at 13,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grades. 

    This kind of growth presents a lot of opportunities.  With more students, we can offer more varied and individualized programs tailored to specific interests and abilities. 

  • BBB Warns: Beware of Summer Vacation Scams

     Headed on a summer vacation? Whether to the beach, on a cruise, or something closer to home, the Better Business Bureau® (BBB) encourages travelers to use caution when making plans, booking hotels, and navigating unfamiliar destinations. Taking the right precautions ahead of time could save you time and money!

    BBB warns there are many potential scams during the vacation planning process and the trip itself.

  • Thanks to Thompson, crew

     I wanted to thank Tony Thompson and his workers for the work they did on the Bullitt Blast this year.

    The Bullitt County Woman’s Club and Linda Belcher appreciated the opportunity to sponsor the watermelon eating contest. It was a fun-filled event with five winners and 43 participants.

    Thank you to The Pioneer News for taking pictures.

  • Helping a motorist

      I broke down on my way to Florida for my oldest daughter’s wedding.

    I ended up at Ken Towery in Shepherdsville. Store manager Brent Beyer and tech Craig Wolfe went above and beyond to get me back on the road. Craig drove to the hardware store himself to get the part. Brent kept the store open an hour and a half past closing to get me to my wedding.

    Their dedication and good nature helps restore my faith in humanity. I hope you can run something in your paper for the good deeds that came from my travel.

  • School board accountability

     The article in the July 7,2014 Pioneer News, front page above the fold,  stated that Bullitt Central High School opened in 1970 and the building does not have a proper firewall.

    Whoa! Let just hold on for a minute. Forty-four years without a proper firewall; how many thousands of students spent four years of their lives in that building? Now we have a board member jumping up and down because it may take $62,435 to correct the problem and make the building safer for thousands more Bullitt Central High School students.

  • THANKS

     The Bullitt County Foundation for Excellence in Public Education wants to publicly thank the Bullitt County community for its support for the 2014 Bullitt County Derby Affair.

    This event was a wonderful success as the foundation clearly nearly $11,000. This is month that will be made available to the educators in our Bullitt County public schools through a competitive grant process.
