  • Do you love them or hate them? Do you prefer them stale or fresh?

    There are no mixed feelings about Peeps, those various-colored, sugarcoated marshmallows that arrive in homes everywhere at this time of year courtesy of the Easter Bunny or an outright purchase.

    They are more than the sugar, corn syrup and gelatin they contain. They are a fun tradition of Easter.

    Even children who don't like Peeps miss them from their Easter baskets. And Peeps sometimes can be found on tops of refrigerators as late as the Fourth of July.

  •  He's from Columbia, Ky. She's from Louisville. But if home is where the heart is, there can be little doubt that their future is in Shelbyville.

      Four years ago Tom Waggener helped start Sixth & Main Coffeehouse in downtown Shelbyville.

      That summer Teresa Jane Powell walked into the shop, and a friendship was born.

      "We hit it off and were friends right away," Waggener said.

  • Rain could do little to keep away the crowd that gathered at Grove Hill cemetery Saturday to honor the men and women who have served in the American military.

    After the Shelby County High School Junior ROTC posted the colors for the ceremony, umbrellas popped up left and right just as guest speaker Chaplain Col. Patrick J. Dolan of the Kentucky Army National Guard took the podium.

    Dolan commended those who have served in military service past and presen, and noted that battle lines have shifted for our country.

  • Finchville Park is finally taking shape, and its new shelter and trail will be dedicated this weekend.

    The dedication starts at 12:30 p.m. Sunday with an old-fashioned potluck lunch. Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks and Recreation, which runs the park, will provide chicken and drinks and guests are asked to bring a dish. Those wanting to come should RSVP to the parks at 633-5059.

  • Heather Axline was "off the chart" when her bone density was checked at the Women's Wellness Affair Tuesday at Claudia Sanders Dinner House.

    Axline, a graduate of Shelby County High School and former girls basketball player, had her bone density checked by a heel scan done by employees of Jewish Hospital using a bone ultrasonometer. Her results showed outstanding bone density and strength.

  • Downtown Shelbyville is about to hear a new beat on a different street.

    On May 22, Sixth Street will close down for the year's second Sixth Street Live concert.

    "I think all of us sort of like the ambiance of Sixth Street because it has the sort of Americano look to it," said Tom Waggener, owner of Main Street Bikes.

    "It [Sixth Street] has little traffic anyway, so it's an easy place to close down and have a street concert."

  • Sixth Street will be closed tonight for a rockin’ good time.

    The second Sixth Street Live concert of the year will run free for all the public from 7 to around 10 p.m. and will be headlined by the Mitchell Toll band and Aaron Schupert.

    “Just come and enjoy the music,” The Mitchell Toll band member Brent Mathis said.

    Food vendors will include Bistro 535 and Earth's Promise Farm/ Certified Organic Pastured Poultry.

  • Somehow, under the rainbow  

    Version No. 13 was not unlucky for Relay for Life, which generated more than $82,000.

    No pot of gold was found at the end of the rainbow that formed Friday night just moments before the survivor ceremonies began at the 13th annual Relay For Life, but participants did have something better to celebrate -- life.
