  • New stitch on an old idea

    Paula Mitchell calls it a "thing of beauty." Cathy Carlson says she "just loves it." Kent Thompson said he "likes it a lot." What is this thing that all they all admire? A barn quilt. What's that?

    You may have noticed what look like handmade quilts hanging on the sides of barns around the countryside.

    They are indeed quilts or, rather, likenesses of quilts that have been painted onto wooden or metal frames.

  • A Sixth Street wedding

     He's from Columbia, Ky. She's from Louisville. But if home is where the heart is, there can be little doubt that their future is in Shelbyville.

      Four years ago Tom Waggener helped start Sixth & Main Coffeehouse in downtown Shelbyville.

      That summer Teresa Jane Powell walked into the shop, and a friendship was born.

      "We hit it off and were friends right away," Waggener said.

  • Liberty and justice for all

    Rain could do little to keep away the crowd that gathered at Grove Hill cemetery Saturday to honor the men and women who have served in the American military.

    After the Shelby County High School Junior ROTC posted the colors for the ceremony, umbrellas popped up left and right just as guest speaker Chaplain Col. Patrick J. Dolan of the Kentucky Army National Guard took the podium.

    Dolan commended those who have served in military service past and presen, and noted that battle lines have shifted for our country.

  • The rain holds off and cash comes out

    Somehow, under the rainbow  

    Version No. 13 was not unlucky for Relay for Life, which generated more than $82,000.

      by Sharon Warner  

    No pot of gold was found at the end of the rainbow that formed Friday night just moments before the survivor ceremonies began at the 13th annual Relay For Life, but participants did have something better to celebrate -- life.

  • Bagdad Days wet but well-attended

    Despite wet, soggy fields and puddles in the streets, Bagdad Days was well-attended, with laughter, food, crafts, and more.

    Saturday found Bagdad’s 17th annual festival hampered by standing water puddles and soggy fields for vendors to set up their tents.

    Nevertheless, everyone had a good time, watching the parade, browsing through arts and crafts tents, play Corn Hole and eating grilled burgers and hot dogs.
