  • You may not have noticed unless you knew the man, but on Election Day a Shelby Countian won office in a landslide victory, and most of you didn’t even have the opportunity to vote for him.

    Jerry T. Miller, a native of the Clark Station community near Simpsonville and a graduate of Shelby County High School, stormed to a berth on the Metro Council in Louisville, taking almost 75 percent of the vote as the Republican candidate to replace Hal Heiner in eastern Jefferson County.

  • If the sparkling elves, candy canes and cowboy boots could talk, they might say, “What took so long?”

    For 16 years maintenance workers had plenty of time to haul the 100 light-up displays out of storage and painstakingly set them up along their 3-mile route.
