  • Local NAPA assembling a regional power

     

  • Credit card changes in place

    Despite a big push to have new credit card swiping technology in place by the first of October, many storeowners in Shelby have not made that transition.

    The concern for the storeowners is the where liability will fall on data breaches as processing companies – like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover – switch to a new, more secure card with a smartchip than those that solely feature a magnetic strip on the back of the cards.

  • Bountiful harvest

    Both state agriculture officials and local farmers agree that this year’s harvest – outside of tobacco – is looking very good, despite a dry summer.

    That’s because the crops got plenty of water early on, and as a result, state officials are really excited.

  • Restaurant gets a makeover

    When Reinel Salgado realized his Shelbyville restaurant wasn’t drawing the attention it should, he decided to make a change.  Across the top of the Taylorsville Road Mexican restaurant formerly known as Salgado’s is a sign informing residents that El Nopal is taking over the spot.  But Salgado says the ownership has not changed.

    “We just changed the name and changed it to a sit-down restaurant,” he said, noting he felt it was time for a new atmosphere.

  • TRIPLE S PLANNING COMMISSION – Humane Society to add six buildings

    The Shelby County Humane Society presented development plans to the Triple S Planning Commission Tuesday to add six additional buildings to their existing spay/neuter clinic.

    Dennis Verkamp, a civil engineer land surveyor with Biagi, Chance, Cummins, London, Titzer, Inc. explained that the development proposes six additional building on 60 acres.  Those buildings include a cat building, a dog building, an education center, a small storage building, a dog show building and potentially a barn for rescuing horses.

  • Big plans for condemned building

    An historic building that was condemned in March for minor problems could have some big plans in its future and, in the process, alter the downtown Shelbyville scene with a new restaurant.

    But that’s not all – officials at Wise Capital Management, the Shelbyville company that purchased the building known as Layson Hall on the corner of Main and 7th streets – say they also plan to restore the structure to its original state when it was built in the 1860s.

  • Blue Gables renovations slow down

    When work began on the old Blue Gables motel last summer, officials with the Shelbyville Preservation Group, a non-profit group in charge of renovating the property for the purpose of turning it into multiple store units, said they anticipated at least some rooms would be ready by the fall of 2014.

    However, by the summer of 2015, SPG representatives acknowledged they might have been too ambitious with their timeline and said units may be closer to completion by the late summer or early fall of this year.

  • An employee you can count on

    Labor Day, established by the US Congress in 1894, salutes the American worker, and in Shelbyville, Steve Wood has seemingly been getting up and going to Katayama every day since.

    Katayama American has always recognized employees for outstanding attendance, but with Wood’s perfect record over 24 years – without even as much as a tardy – Vice President Mark Baker said he’s “the cream of the crop.”

  • A labor of love

    Each year since 1984 the nation has honored its workforce with a break from the hustle and bustle of a typical workday.  The September holiday gives hard workers an opportunity for a day of rest to enjoy family time, barbeque with friends or get a quick last summer vacation with an extended weekend.

    Some companies, however, go above and beyond when it comes to expressing gratitude to their employees.
