  •  SHEPHERDSVILLE -- When Speyside Cooperage brought its unique business to Bullitt County in 2010, it was done with little fanfare.

    Even as they passed the business on North Buckman Street next to the post office, the factory was nestled back off the road.

    Now, the community’s first international company is ready to spread its wings and get more active.

    The first project will be to partner with the city of Shepherdsville in its beautification program.

  •  Hey... it didn’t rain on the annual Master Gardeners Plant Sale at the Bullitt County Extension Office.

    This past Saturday, the crowds were huge as they enjoyed the sunshine and the many great items on sale.

  •  Donald Trump, Elvis Presley and Beverly Clearly walk into a school. No, it’s not a punch line. It’s a historic wax museum at Mount Washington Elementary.

    Characters included Michelle Obama, John Deere, Anne Frank, Michael Jordan, Mary Todd Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Coco Chanel and many more.

  •  Bullitt East High School Director of Bands Trevor Ervin was honored with the 2018 Phi Beta Mu Young Bandmaster Award during the Kentucky Music Educators Annual Conference Feb. 8-10 in Louisville.

  •  In 1858, before the Civil War, but just after the railroad had made its way to Shepherdsville and beyond, the Presbyterian families living in the area elected to join together and form a new church.

    Seeking a name for their new congregation, they turned to the Bible and selected Hebron, both because that was where Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had dwelt, and perhaps more importantly, because Hebron means society, friendship, and union.

  •     We will be looking back 25, 50, 75, and 100 years to see what was being printed in The Pioneer News in 1993, 1968, 1943, and 1918 in the month of May.
