  • Parade, fireworks celebrate independence

     

    Diann Cook of Shelbyville said one of her favorite parts of the fireworks display at Clear Creek Park on Sunday was how the show began.

  • Old Shelby cabin gets new home

    A cabin likely built in the early 1800s near Simpsonville is on the move again.

    The old cabin has served as an admissions office at Kentucky Country Day School in eastern Jefferson County after it was removed from a farm in the Fields Lane area of Shelby County in 1988. It was donated to the school by Ken and June Martin, who owned about 105 acres of land that included the cabin.

    They donated it at the request of Joe Sorrell, who lived in western Shelby County at the time; he was a science teacher at Country Day.

  • Flags go up in a blaze of glory

    Noble Roberts, chaplain of VFW Post 1179, said that few funeral services are as stirring as those held for Old Glory.

    "There are several different versions of flag-burning ceremonies, but all are very patriotic," he said.

    Roberts, a Coast Guard veteran who said his job was to "patch the flags" on his ship, delivered the eulogy and served as narrator at a flag-retiring ceremony held last Tuesday at Clear Creek Park by the Sons of the American Revolution and the VFW.

  • A crafty concept

    Funny how one hobby can lead to another and that hobby sometimes gets out of hand and grows into a business. That's what happened to Tyler Bitzer.

    Bitzer, 16-year-old son of Tammy and Craig Bitzer of Bagdad, has shown cattle with his younger brother. Kolt, since they were young enough to walk under a cow without stooping.

  • 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.
