  • 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."

  • U.S. Representative Brett Guthrie (R-Bowling Green) stopped in Shelby County on Monday to visit with area firefighters and EMS workers and take a tour at Clear Creek Park.

    But Guthrie, who is campaigning against Democrat Ed Marksberry of Owensboro for Kentucky's 2nd District Congressional seat, which he won in 2008, also wanted to reply to a few comments made by his opponent in The Sentinel-News on Friday.

  • Jack Conway asked about 30 supporters that showed up outside the Shelby County Courthouse on Thursday morning to gather in a little closer.

    Like a coach before the big game, Conway was urging his team of Democrats on in support of his bid to be Kentucky's next U.S. Senator.

    "I'm asking you, Shelby County, can we carry this county?" he asked.
