  • New faces heating up rivalry between Bullitt track teams

    SHEPHERDSVILLE-- There might not be a track for any local meets this season, or any season for the foreseeable future, but the area coaches and athletes seem to be doing a pretty good job of things despite the hurdles (or lack of hurdles).

  • Help right on target

     On behalf of the North Bullitt Archery Team, I would like to express my gratitude for the community’s support of the Eagle Fest, which was held on Saturday, March 14, at St. Aloysius gym.

    At the event, we had a date auction, a silent auction and live entertainment by Rock-Ola. Our goal was to raise $1,600 to purchase 10 new targets for the archers to use during practice.

  • Aged stories get some closure with mixed results

     Time goes quickly…most of the time.

    If you are around long enough, you have the opportunity to witness a lot of things.

    Unfortunately, there is seldom anything positive that results from these long term events.

    The most notable example is the latest resolution of the Jessica Dishon murder.

    In looking around the pool of reporters sitting in the jury box during the final sentencing of Stanley Dishon, I realized that I may have been the lone media person who covered the events from the very first day of the search.

  • Legislators need late-night hours to finish work

     FRANKFORT– The House and Senate worked from the late night of Tuesday into the wee hours of Wednesday morning, adding an additional day to wrap up the 2015 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly.

     During the final hours until we adjourned around 4 a.m. on Wednesday morning, agreements were reached on several key bills including what many consider to be the top priority for this session, addressing the growing problem of heroin.

  • April Fools’ Day good for writer with comical pen

     Easter weekend and Spring Break are both fast approaching, but recent news items in Bullitt County are keeping The Pioneer News staff hopping like an Easter Bunny with an ingrown toenail.

    In local news, Bullitt Fiscal Court continues to struggle with the Bullitt County Sheriffs Office over budget numbers.

    The last argument was over a line item requesting specialized ceremonial uniforms to be worn by the sheriff and deputies only when television cameras are anticipated in the vicinity.

  • KHSAA sanctions cornhole starting next fall

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Earlier this week, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association voted to sanction cornhole as a competitive sport starting with the 2015-2016 school year.

    Kentucky now becomes the first state to join the cornhole bandwagon and other southern states are soon expected to join the cornhole phenomenon.

    Adding cornhole is seen as a move to put the ugly ‘yard darts’ debacle in the rearview mirror for the KHSAA.
