  • It may not have been the cat’s meow, but it was close.

    Officials of animal rescue groups in Shelby County say they were very pleased with the turnout of their first joint fundraiser, a sold-out event at Claudia Sanders Dinner House on Saturday night.

    “We are thrilled with the turnout,” said Nancy Guilliom, Humane Society volunteer coordinator. “We have 410 here tonight [Saturday]. We couldn’t be more pleased.”

  • After 56 Valentine’s Days together, Fred and Geneva Ruble are still sweethearts.

    When they wed on July 23, 1955, they embarked on a love story that has never waned. “Freddie” and “Neva” (their nicknames for each other) have really lived up to their marriage vows, especially the part about “in sickness and in health,” said their daughter, Renee Ruble.

    “In more than 50 years of marriage, they have never been apart for more than three or four days,” she said.

  • Already a hero and about to receive a national award for saving a child’s life last year, a preschool teacher in Shelbyville has done it again.
