  • 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.

  • AARP not involved

     A recent advertisement placed in this newspaper by the Committee to Elect Depp E. Rasner II associated AARP 50+ with a Rasner sponsored event in the Mount Washington Senior Center.

    AARP did not authorize the ad from Committee to Elect Depp E. Rasner II that mentions AARP and did not participate in its production. AARP is a 501©(4) organization that does not endorse candidates or make contributions to political campaigns or candidates.

  • Thank to Pioneer News

     Thanks for the nice send-off you guys at The Pioneer News gave me when I retired.

    I have such fond memories of my 25-plus years at the paper. We had good times and bad times but we all went through it together. Sometimes is seemed like we were more like family than co-workers. You are all special to me.

    Thanks Linda and Patty from Central Office for coming for my retirement party. It meant a lot to me.

  • Does our flag still fly?

     On July 4, Hal Lindsey made a guest talk about whether our flag was still flying. He mentioned about our first president who were Christians, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Our nation was founded on the Bible.

  • This is a column that you can take on the road

     It’s not a pretty time to be a motorist in Bullitt County.

    A year from now, things might be a whole lot different.

    No matter where you live in the county, road construction can be seen.

    For the past few months, repairs on Interstate 65 from about Highway 245 south to the Hardin County line have been underway.

    Travelers have been known to complain on the social media on the long, long line on I-65, especially on the weekends.

  • 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. 

  • Best of Paul Coyle - 07/28/14

      This week's Best of Coyle, from 2007, is a reminder to Bullitt Cuuntians that school begins on one week, on Aug. 6.

    The Pioneer News staff wishes everyone a happy and safe return to school from their summer vacations.

  • Schools are safe

     This letter is in response to the letter to the editor that appeared in the July 16 edition of the Pioneer News regarding the new firewall at Bullitt Central High School and is meant to clear up any possible misconceptions regarding the safety of our school facilities, especially Bullitt Central High School. 

    The questions regarding the firewall simply concerned what we believed was an oversight in the engineer’s original design of the new firewall which led to a change order.
