  • Retirement rush

    It’s no secret that Kentucky has one of the worst funded pension systems in the nation, but it’s the unknown that has employees of the commonwealth so concerned.  And those concerns have many seeking retirement options a bit sooner than they may have planned.

  • Decades of devotion

    Today marks the end of an era for Don Carey who is retiring after nearly forty years with the Masonic Home of Shelbyville.

    When Carey came to work at the facility 38 years ago, he was just looking for a job, but what he found was a home, he said.

    A place where his wizardry in "fixin' everything that breaks" made him so indispensable that he rose to the rank of maintenance director, a position that didn't go to his head, but rather, to his hands.

  • Heavy-duty commitment

    A local company is making waves in the economic development sector across the state with a new apprenticeship program.

  • Midland moving forward

    Dust has been stirring up around the Midland Shopping Center lately.  With renovations in the vacant space adjacent to the recently developed Planet Fitness, the building is showing signs of a pending vendor in the wait, but developers have yet to respond to The Sentinel-News regarding their plans.

    The former Tractor Supply building down the sidewalk is also getting spruced up.

    Doug Thurman, who is listed as the contact on the building, shed some light on the work, although he could not yet name the possible tenant.

  • Local Father’s Day finds

    Father's Day is just a couple days away and if you still haven't picked out the perfect gift for the special dad in your life, your time to hit the stores is running short. 

    But before you grab the first generic coffee mug or tie at a national retailer, consider looking locally for some unique and special gift options.
