    “It will be a comprehensive blog where charities can list what their needs are and their mission statements,” said Starla Martin, Joseph’s mother.

    Martin said the idea came from a mission trip to Hazard he had made several years ago, and now he has launched aid4shelby.blogspot.com.

  • Cold weather and a few inches of snow couldn't stop Santa and the Shelbyville Christmas parade Saturday.

    The parade went off with only a minor hitch despite flurries and icy conditions downtown.

    "That's the first time we've faced that kind of weather," Shelby County Fire Chief Bobby Cowherd said. "We were kind of running around all morning trying to figure out what we were going to do."

    Once they decided to move on with the parade, the crowd responded.

    “I had great upbringing, and storytelling was a part of it,” Crawford says. “Some of the best storytellers I have ever met were the men and women I grew up listening to.
