  • 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.

  • 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.

    If you receive a call saying you’ve won a new computer, hang up! A local consumer was told she won a new PC but had to send money. She sent $20 to the scammer, who then said they wanted more money before sending her the computer.

  • Accolades to B&B

     On May 27th 2016 my brother was released from the hospital after spending 52 days, 38 of those in ICU. We started at 11:00 AM getting him released.

    My sister-in-law called about 5:30 PM to see how late they were open and they said 6:00, but they told her they would wait for the prescription to be sent to them

  • Plenty of entertainment at Renfro Valley

     We have often drive by Renfro Valley on our way to the Smoky Mountains. “The Valley” is only about two hours away from Shepherdsville. 

    This summer after stumbling upon www.renfrovalley.com we decided to make “The Valley” and Berea a weekend summer get-away, and are we glad that we did!

    This area may just be one of the most overlooked destinations in Kentucky. It offers some great shopping, handmade artisan crafts, delicious eating, and great family shows. 

  • Summer may have just started, but fall is fast approaching

        SHEPHERDSVILLE – The baseball All-Star game was just last week, the Fourth of July is still a vivid memory and summer has officially been with us for less than a month.
        The not so tactfully named ‘dead period’ is well...dead and gone for another summer.
        Yet fall starts next Friday.
