  • EARLIER: Holiday trees to be sold for cancer fundraiser

    Even if you think it’s a bit early for the Christmas decorations that now adorn stores, a new event on Saturday will allow to begin your personal holiday celebration early.

    In a new twist on a popular concept to raise money for cancer, the first House of Trees will be going all day Saturday in the cafeteria at Collins High School.

    Organizations and teams decorate trees in unique themes, and the public can bid to buy them in a silent-auction-type format.

  • Shelby man is one of Fulbright’s brightest

    With more than 1,600 U.S. students earning Fulbright Scholarships this year, Jack Galloway didn't think he was a sure thing when he filled out his application.

    "The Fulbright application process takes a lot of energy and patience," he said. "It's a very competitive program, and I can only say that I am deeply honored and excited by the opportunity."

    But Galloway, a native of Shelby County, did earn one of those spots, joining an exclusive club of 294,000 who have earned the Fulbright, 110,000 of whom are from the United States.

  • Witchy woman loves halloween

    She’s been described as a “good witch,” and those who see her around town this week will surely agree.

    Every year, the entire week leading up to Halloween, Linda Ethington gets all decked out in her witch garb whenever she goes anywhere, even to the grocery store, she said.

  • Shooting gallery offers self-protection shooters course

    What happens when you come home and see a window busted out, maybe a door slightly ajar or something out of place?

    Of course, you call the police, but unless you live on Main Street in Shelbyville, between 5th and 3rd streets, it's going to take a few minutes for help to arrive.

    If you are a registered gun owner, especially one certified to carry a weapon, you may be inclined to investigate on our own.

  • Fundraiser for Savannah Sanders highly successful

    Saturday dawned bright and sunny, just perfect for a fundraiser designed to bring light into a young woman’s world.

    More than 1,200 people attended “Save Savannah’s Sight,” held at the amphitheater at Clear Creek Park, which raised more than $22,000 to pay for a surgery that it is hoped will restore at least partial sight to Savannah Sanders.

    The 21-year old, who was blinded in a childhood accident at age 10, was present at the event, and even performed a comedy act on stage.
