  •  Recently at Shelbyville’s Centro Latino, a freezer stood empty except for one small box of food.

  • Santa’s workshop is at its busiest this time of the year.

    Braving the frigid cold of the North Pole, the big jolly guy and his elves are checking their lists – twice – to make sure all the toys are built and reindeer fully trained for Santa’s annual departure to chimneys near and far.

    With all that work to do, Santa often sends his helpers on his behalf to greet the good little girls and boys across the globe and take notes on what they want for Christmas.

  • Each holiday season the spirit of giving and generosity seizes many of us, prompting an extra card here, some bills in a bucket there.

    And there are some as Christmas approaches who take that spirit just a bit father, who reach out to our neighbors who are most in need.

    Their stories are inspirational and too often go untold, lost in the dash and sparkle of the season, private acts of kindness that spread blessings among us.

  • Magistrate Michael Riggs, a Republican, has filed for re-election to a third term representing District 2, which includes most of western Shelby County.

    Riggs said he is proud of the great strides that Shelby County government has made during the two terms he has served.

  • Donna Eaton has filed to run for a third term on the Shelbyville City Council.

    Eaton, currently the only woman on the council, said in a prepared statement that she has never voted for a tax increase on city citizens, and she wants to continue that record.

    “My major goal for the future, if re-elected, is to continue to keep taxes low on working families,” she said.

  • Greg Jacobs said he had no intention of writing a book.

    But when he sat down at his computer this summer, his story poured out in 17 days.

    When Jacobs was finished, he had what he called a Christian-living book about the "knocks and bruises" he has experienced. He called it To be Continued...An Ordinary Man on an Extraordinary Journey.

    He self-published through Xulon Press in October and will be at the Shelby County Public Library for a book signing Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.
