  • On a recent Sunday afternoon, two automobiles pulled up to the Allen Dale residence, and a group of young visitors poured out. They turned out to be members of the Powell Family, descendants of Ernest and Carrie Powell of Allen Dale, who had been attending a family reunion at Clear Creek Park in Shelbyville. Their surprise visit was most welcome.

  • Everything is dark – you can’t see a thing. Then you feel spider webs brushing against your face, and you hear a door creak open on rusty hinges.

    You know something is going to jump out of the dark at you, but what? A werewolf, a huge spider dripping venom or maybe an 8-foot-tall Lurch look-alike with a bloody chainsaw?

  • Those who knew Robert Matthews Jr. best say he always embraced the winds of change with grace and dignity, particularly when the longtime Shelby County attorney and former public servant returned to civilian life after World War II.

    Matthews, whose career included a stint as Kentucky Attorney General and a just-missed attempt at lieutenant governor, died Saturday at Crestview Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. He was 87.

  • The Shelbyville City Council has spent much of the last year to year and a half working on a plan to spruce up much of the downtown area.

    Through the East End Study and the nearly completed 7th Street Corridor Study, the city council has, with input from residents, set up a plan for continued growth in these areas.

    Along with the cleaning up of the downtown zoning districts, the council has put a plan in place for a large part of the city.

  • Candidates gearing up for the Nov. 2 election had a final chance to sway the public Monday during the county's largest political forum.

     

    The nearly three-hour event was hosted by Shelby County Organized for Preservation and Enhancement (SCOPE) and The Sentinel-News, who have partnered on the event since 1988.

     

    SCOPE President Ronald R. Van Stockum Jr. served as the moderator, and Steve Doyle, editor of The Sentinel-News, offered the questions.

  • Ed Marksberry is running for U.S. Congress in the 2nd District, but a lot of people may not know who he is.

     

    His Republican opponent, incumbent, Brett Guthrie, has raised more than $1 million, and his ads have graced newspapers and TV sets throughout the 21 counties in the district.

     

    Marksberry, however, said he made a vow early on not to accept contributions to his campaign from corporations so his work has been on a much smaller scale.

  • The polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday, and voters in Shelby County should be ready.

    Very little has changed for registered voters in the county: Only one of the 34 polling locations has moved, affecting about 850 in Cropper.

    "We sent letters out to everyone in that voting district, but some people are still confused," Shelby County Clerk Sue Carole Perry said.  "Both [magisterial] candidates [Bill Hedges and John Lewis] have told us they've received calls from people asking if they had to go to Bagdad to vote."
