  • Solid experience trumped youthful exuberance in the race for Shelby County Circuit Clerk Tuesday as Lowry Miller upended Austin Redmon by a 21-point margin.

    Miller, a Republican who has filled the role of clerk since the retirement of Kathy Nichols this past summer, garnered 61 percent of the vote to triumph over Redmon, who is a student at Kentucky State University.

  • With a large and enthusiastic turnout of voters, Shelby County provided a big push that helped send two Republicans from Bowling Green – rookie Rand Paul and incumbent Brett Guthrie – to Washington next year.

    Paul, an optometrist from Bowling Green, soundly defeated Democrat Jack Conway to earn the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Republican Jim Bunning.

    Doug Butler said Tuesday night he was more concerned with what he wants to accomplish during his next term with the Shelby County School Board than how he was going to get in position to do it.

  • The Shelby County sheriff’s race between two veteran lawmen ended up in a big victory for incumbent Sheriff Mike Armstrong.

    Democrat Armstrong defeated Republican Stewart Shirley, earning more than 60 percent of the vote.

  • Incumbent Donna Dutton easily beat out Darby L. Smith to keep her seat as the 53rd District Court Judge on Tuesday night.

    This was the second time Dutton has bested Smith for the seat, and, according to Smith, it will be the last time he challenges her for the position.

    Dutton beat Smith in Shelby with 56.4 percent of the vote and won by a slightly larger margin in Anderson and Spencer counties.

  •  Many people thought state Senate candidates David Eaton and Paul Hornback were similar in many ways, but District 20 has made its choice to follow the Republican theme of the night.

  • 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.
