  • Before the first shots of the Civil War were fired 150 years ago - on April 12, 1861 - it was already clear that Kentucky would play an important role in shaping both the Confederate and Union sides.

  • Since the publication of – in both newspaper and book formats – my columns on Squire Boone, whose Painted Stone Station along Clear Creek was the forerunner of present-day Shelbyville, I have received additional information relating to his life and times.

    You may recall that, on Sept. 13, 1781, settlers fleeing Painted Stone for the relative safety of Linn’s Station were attached viciously by Indians in what has been described as “The Long Run Massacre.”

  • Information was gathered from previous years of The Shelby Sentinel, The Shelby News and The Sentinel-News. You can reach the writer at sharonw@sentinelnews.com.

     

  • The city of Shelbyville has done studies to plan for controlled growth and ways to beautify the East End of town and he 7th Street corridor.

    Slaton-Knox has lived on the 800 block of 10th Street for six years, and she’s trying to get the area organized for a beautification project.
