  • Start planning for retirement now

     FRANKFORT -- Retirement may be the farthest thing from your mind when you're still in school, but now is the time to start thinking about it. In fact, the farther away it is, the better off you may be, according to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

    For decades, U.S. citizens have depended on Social Security for much of their retirement income. However, Social Security benefits for younger workers are not guaranteed.

  • Thanks from Roby

     We want to give a special thanks to all the businesses that donated to the Roby Elementary Spring Auction:

  • Thank you, Mr. Schultz

     Fifteen years ago, educator Greg Schultz interviewed for the principalship at North Bullitt High School.

    The search committee, which had passed on the first group of candidates, some fairly impressive, were impressed from the start by Mr. Schultz.

    The committee made the decision to hire him because of the energy he brought to the interview.

    He has contributed to the shaping of Bullitt County minds ever since.

  • Good things in Hillview

     This is in response to an article in The Pioneer News on April 27, 2016, regarding the Hillview lawsuit.

    I have lived in Hillview for over 20 years. I don’t agree with what has happened but I totally disagree with the comments that were presented by the resident in the council meeting.

    Hillview Police Department has done more in recent years than they have in the past and our services are even better.

  • Thanks to contributors

     The Bowman Valley committee would like to thank Bullitt County Tourism for its generous donation of $500 to the Bowman Valley School Restoration Program.

    We would also like to thank the DAR (Daughters of American Revolution) for its very generous donation of $4,000 to be used to place a monument similar to the one in front of the Woodsdale School, next to Bowman Valley School.

    Thank you so much to these great organizations for their generosity and support to our project.

  • We are left to guess reasons for withdrawal

      It was the hot topic at the recent political forum.

    Melanie Roberts had withdrawn from the 49th District House of Representatives race just prior to Thursday’s event.

    “Due to circumstances beyond my control, I am announcing my withdrawal as a state representative candidate. I look forward to continuing to serve the peopleof Bullitt County as their judge executive.”

    That was it. That was all to be said. She did not return messages left by this reporter on Friday morning.
