  • LJ adding to footprint of Wall St. Park

     LEBANON JUNCTION— Wall Street Park just got a little bigger and the city of Lebanon Junction just got a little more beautiful.

    Though Mayor Larry Dangerfield lived in the house located at 214 Church Street in the ‘70s, it hasn’t been lived in for several years.

    “It’s an eyesore,” he said. “Not to the fault of the owner but it is a big undertaking.”

  • Rod and Gun Club teaches safety at LJ

     LEBANON JUNCTION — As national debates continue, one thing is agreed upon: gun safety can never be taught too early.

  • Lots of questions leading into Friday’s game

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Unlike the past 30 years, high school football teams no longer ‘trade’ film with upcoming opponents.

  • Oldham next for North

     HEBRON ESTATES – Failing to ‘fire’ in the second half despite moving head 14-12 midway through the third quarter on Friday against arch-rival Bullitt Central and eventually losing 47-21, the North Bullitt Eagles will have to pick up the pieces this week as they face another strong challenge as Oldham County visits.

  • Football players get a little muddy on Saturday

      SHEPHERDSVILLE -- Once again this season The Pioneer News will run the results from the Greater Bullitt County Youth Football League in each Wednesday edition during the season.

  • BCHS Homecoming parade will disrupt traffic on Thursday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The annual Bullitt Central Homecoming Parade is set for this Thursday so motorists should avoid the downtown area from 5:15-6:45 p.m.

  • The Month for Voters

     There may only be 13 Fridays until Christmas but there are only six Wednesdays before the Nov. 6 general elections.

    We’re not saying that the elections are more important than Christmas; however, like when buying those presents, we hope that you put a little thought into your voting also.

    Over the course of the next four Tuesdays, the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce and The Pioneer News will host a series of forums.

    They will be held in Mount Washington, Shepherdsville, Hillview and Lebanon Junction starting Oct. 2 and ending Oct. 23.

  • Post-season changes surprising

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The news last week that the Kentucky High School Athletic Association was going to make some major alterations to the post-season for baseball and softball was a little bit of a surprise.

    It was just several years ago that baseball split its 16-team state tournament to two weekends in Lexington. All the talk at that time was that the move would help smaller schools as there would need to be less pitching required as there would be just two games a week instead of the four needed the previous few seasons.
