  • On this Thanksgiving, Shelbyville Mayor Tom Hardesty has plenty of reasons to be thankful.

    In the late hours of Oct. 13 Hardesty learned he would have to undergo emergency stomach surgery to repair a bleeding ulcer. Doctors said that if Hardesty had not been in a medical facility, he might not have lived.

    During that procedure one-third of his stomach was removed, and along with it went much of his strength.
