  • Kate's little helpers

    Anyone who catches an inside glimpse of Kate Bemiss' life might exclaim, "All this and family harmony, too?"

    But to Bemiss and her clan, that close-knit camaraderie goes together like, well, ice cream and cake. Or maybe fried chicken and mashed potatoes, or even  a perfectly grilled steak topped with plump sautéed mushrooms, with a fluffy baked potato oozing butter and sour cream.

    Getting hungry?

    Then Bemiss and her clan might be just the ticket if you need a private party catered.

  • Band of brothers - and sisters

    Platoon 2 of the Shelbyville Fire Department will tell you -- being a firefighter is not always flashy, and the work can be tedious. But it’s the satisfaction that comes from doing something you care about side-by-side with people you care about that makes it all worthwhile.

    “It’s something I always wanted to do,” firefighter Jon Blank said. “After 10 years I still wake up ready to go to work. You get real close to your family here. There are a lot of good people here.”

  • A colonoscopy may have saved his life

    Chances are, most people know someone who has died of colon cancer.

    This disease, formally known as colorectal cancer, is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, and that's a key reason why March was designated National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month by President Clinton in 2000.

    Even though he didn't relish the idea of undergoing a colonoscopy, Shelby County Sheriff Mike Armstrong decided he didn't want to take a chance of becoming a statistic.

  • Universities know where to get their riders trained

    Shelby County may be known as the "Saddlebred Capital of the World," but three visiting Oregon State University students arrived in Shelby on Friday for another breed - quarter horses.

    And they knew just the place to go.

    Rea Quarter Horses on Locust Lane provided three members of OSU's equestrian team with the horses and a place to loosen up for the 2009 Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Western Semifinals, which took place Saturday at Morehead State University.
