  • Combat is the primary challenge of a Marine, in fact the raison d’etre of any fighting service, but there are long periods of conditioning and training between battles, providing opportunities for new experiences, many unique to those in the military.

    As an honor graduate of the University of Washington’s Army ROTC program, I was offered a commission as a second lieutenant in the regular U.S. Marine Corps, effective July 1, 1937, a week before my 21st birthday. However, approval of military commissions that year were delayed in the Senate.

  • Sitting well back off of KY 55 just a little south of Finchville is a hidden gem of a home for history buffs. The Greek Revival-style home’s original front was built in 1837, and it became known as Sylvan Shades by its second owner.

    “It was actually built by a man named Newland, and he sold the home to Thomas Doolan,” current owner John Test said. “After that it remained in the Doolan family until we purchased it in 1985.”

  • David Hedrick is a man who knows about retirement. He has retired from at least two positions in his long-standing career as a musician and choral director. This past February, Hedrick retired….again.

    This time, it was from his position as musical director of The Stephen Foster Story, in Bardstown.

    Many Shelby County residents have sung and learned under the direction of David Hedrick as choral director at Shelby County High School. It was from here he earned his first retirement after 28 years teaching.

  • Put together a frosty Saturday morning, a placid lake with the sun glinting off the water, a dozen canoes and dozens of “morning people,” and what do you have?

    A crew of exuberant volunteers all set to clean up Lake Shelby by canoe, of course.

    The volunteers, consisting of Collins Army ROTC members, Clear Creek Trailblazer volunteers, and some individuals, braved a chilly morning, rain gorged waterways and muddy creek banks to participate in the annual Clear Creek Cleanup, which also included a cleanup by Boy Scouts who policed along the banks.

  • Shelby Countians must be doing something right, judging by the county’s steadily rise as one of the healthiest counties in the state.

    Shelby County is up to third this year, according to the 2013 County Health Rankings of all states, complied annually by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
