Today's Features

  • Sitting well back off of KY 55 just a little south of Finchville is a hidden gem of a home for history buffs. The Greek Revival-style home’s original front was built in 1837, and it became known as Sylvan Shades by its second owner.

    “It was actually built by a man named Newland, and he sold the home to Thomas Doolan,” current owner John Test said. “After that it remained in the Doolan family until we purchased it in 1985.”

  • David Hedrick is a man who knows about retirement. He has retired from at least two positions in his long-standing career as a musician and choral director. This past February, Hedrick retired….again.

    This time, it was from his position as musical director of The Stephen Foster Story, in Bardstown.

    Many Shelby County residents have sung and learned under the direction of David Hedrick as choral director at Shelby County High School. It was from here he earned his first retirement after 28 years teaching.

  • Put together a frosty Saturday morning, a placid lake with the sun glinting off the water, a dozen canoes and dozens of “morning people,” and what do you have?

    A crew of exuberant volunteers all set to clean up Lake Shelby by canoe, of course.

    The volunteers, consisting of Collins Army ROTC members, Clear Creek Trailblazer volunteers, and some individuals, braved a chilly morning, rain gorged waterways and muddy creek banks to participate in the annual Clear Creek Cleanup, which also included a cleanup by Boy Scouts who policed along the banks.

  • Shelby Countians must be doing something right, judging by the county’s steadily rise as one of the healthiest counties in the state.

    Shelby County is up to third this year, according to the 2013 County Health Rankings of all states, complied annually by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute in collaboration with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

  • Festivals at Clear Creek Park and in Simpsonville had huge turnouts on the Fourth of July, where crowds enjoyed good food, music, games, and of course, fireworks.

  • Todd and Christal Armstrong of Shelbyville have been married for 25 years. The couple were married on June 4, 1989 and renewed their vows on June 4, 2014, on the beach of Siesta Key in Florida with their daughter, Cara Armstrong; son, Matthew Armstrong; daughter-in-law, Toni Benskin; and grandson, Lucas Armstrong.

    He has been a rail loader for RCS Transportation for 16 years.

    She has been a financial analyst for Ricoh for 21 years.

  • The Lincoln Heritage Council, Daniel Boone District, had Cub Scout day camp at Clear Creek Park. Mayor Tom Hardesty and representatives from several local agencies (police, fire, public works, etc.) came to have lunch with the scouts. The Cub Scouts had just been sprayed with water from both city and county fire departments, so Hardesty (center in front row) got a bit wet in the photo.
