  • Shelby gets therapy alternative

    Now 28 years old, Renea Sageser figures she has spent 24 years of her life dealing with therapy in some way.

    It began when she was a child going through several years of speech therapy herself. Then during her senior year of high school, her mother was involved in a traumatic automobile accident, resulting in a serious head injury.

  • Candles & Gifts on Main sold

    Even in a time of weakened economy, Candles & Gifts on Main was a successful business, according to Bonnie Allnutt. But now the store, located at 536 Main St., is getting new owners and, in time, a new look.

    “I was retired from banking, and I needed something to do. And I decided to open a business,” Allnutt said. “It’s too demanding. It’s been very successful, but I have two children, in Texas and Colorado, and I couldn’t just take off and see them. It was just more than I really wanted to do.”

    Benner owns Terhune Body & Frame Shop in Shelbyville, and he has implemented a way to cut his yearly gas expenses by thousands.

  • Retailers brace for holidays

    What do you get when you mix a lousy economy with the boxes, ribbons and bags of the holiday retail season?

    Becky Johnson is calling it "Christmas lite."

    Johnson, a mother of two, said she will still buy presents for her family this year, but the amount she spends will be significantly less.

    "My kids know to expect less under the tree this year," she said. "They know that we've got a budget, and we have to survive after holidays are over. But they're teenagers...so it's harder for them to accept."
