    In addition to other historical exhibits already on display, the center, which houses the Shelbyville Historic District Commission’s office, featured a new exhibit that had just opened.

    The World War II era certainly should bring back a lot of memories for many people who come to see this exhibit, said Sharon Hackworth, co-chair of the Shelby County Historical Society.

  • The romance of Marquis Antoine “Tony” de Charette from Brittany, France, and Susanne Henning continued, despite the adamant opposition of her mother, Sue Henning of Allen Dale Farm in Shelby County.

    Sue Henning, concerned about Charette’s character and financial standing – her own family having endured difficult financial times – carried out an investigation to learn as much as she couldabout the man with whom her daughter was smitten.

  • 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.
