  • A pretty Grand experience

    Brad Holland spent Friday enduring just about every hardship the human body can endure – thirst, exposure to all kinds of weather, near dehydration, fatigue…you name it.

    But he wouldn’t have missed it for anything.

    Holland, a financial advisor who lives in Shelbyville with his wife, Audrey and three daughters, participated in a 25-mile marathon, from rim-to-rim in the Grand Canyon, all in the name of charity. The money he raised will be used to purchase a water supply system for residents in the Dominican Republic.

  • Doris Sutherland Ruble: 1931-2011

    “I have known her all my life, and everyone loved her. You would be hard pressed to find anyone in this town who does not feel that way.”

    John Shannon’s sentiments about Doris Jean Sutherland Ruble, who passed away Saturday at the age of 80, are shared by many in Shelbyville, who consider Ruble’s kind, loving nature to be her legacy to her family and her community.

    Ruble, a retired LPN, worked at Jewish Hospital Shelbyville for 57 years, stretching back to the days when the facility was known as King’s Daughter’s hospital.

  • A cool parade in Waddy

    Monday dawned wet and stormy, but people in Waddy were determined not to let rain and chilly temperatures keep them from enjoying their Labor Day festivities.

    “Heck, we’ve been busy since seven o’clock this morning,” said Tracy Steinmiller, who along with Helen McKinney, watched as people waded through the wet grass to browse through a myriad of items for sell at a yard sale in the church yard at Waddy Baptist Church.

  • Hudson, Collins launch Shelby’s United Way drive

    How could you improve upon a perfect summer evening, with great weather and a light supper of fruit and wine in Undulata Farm’s charming historic home?

    Just throw in about a hundred or so people, with former Gov. Martha Layne Collins and Bobby Hudson to inspire them, and you’ll have the 2011 Metro United Way campaign kickoff.

  • Hailing a Shelby County war hero

    Robert D. Kemper was considered a Shelby County hero long before he was killed in the line of duty in 1971, and 40 years later, efforts are being made to keep that memory alive forever.
    Work is under way to memorialize the U.S. Navy officer known as “Boo Boo,” who flew 256 combat missions as a fighter pilot during the Vietnam War and was killed while saving another aviator during a states-side training flight in 1971.

  • Former deputy jailer honored for heroism

    It started out as just an ordinary day at work for Conrad Lanham, a deputy jailer at the Shelby County Detention Center.

    Then everything changed in a heartbeat when an inmate grabbed a female employee and put a sharp object to her throat.

    What Lanham did next earned him the title of Kentucky Deputy Jailer of the Year for 2010, an award given each year to a deputy who has displayed remarkable courage and bravery.
