  • Shelby County may be known as the "Saddlebred Capital of the World," but three visiting Oregon State University students arrived in Shelby on Friday for another breed - quarter horses.

    And they knew just the place to go.

    Rea Quarter Horses on Locust Lane provided three members of OSU's equestrian team with the horses and a place to loosen up for the 2009 Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Western Semifinals, which took place Saturday at Morehead State University.

    What would you do if someone grabbed you from behind in the dark?

    What is the best way to keep yourself safe?

    These and other questions will be answered with a demonstration on self defense techniques that will  be offered free at the Shelby County Library Jan. 22 from 5 to 7 p.m.

    The event is one of several programs that the library is offering free in January.

  •  For 35 years, Bryon Crawford has been telling the story of Kentucky.

  • Last week, local students from the Young Leaders Institute 2008-2009 observed Government Day by visiting state and local government officials.

    The students asked officials about their roles in government, as well as about the community and issues specific to their lives.

    To get a feel for politics, students participated in role-playing exercises as members of the House of Representatives, passing a piece of proposed legislation, and also as magistrates for Shelby County Fiscal Court.

  • On a peaceful Sunday morning nearly 67 years ago, 35 servicemen were having a leisurely breakfast at Hickman Airfield at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

    Before they knew what had happened, the mess hall took a direct attack from Japanese fighter planes.

    All were killed.

    But that was only the beginning – for both of the attack and of its ramifications for history.

  •  Attention Shelbyville -- A musical revolution is about to begin.

      "We are the Mitchell Toll Band," Brent Mathis stamped as he spoke his message proudly, as if he were in front of hundreds of adoring fans instead of on the phone with a small-town reporter.

      But the band soon will have a larger audience, as it goes front and center at the Shelby County Community Theatre on March 27.
