     A Henry County woman admitted in Federal Court on Tuesday that she stole nearly $650,000 from a lending company in Shelbyville that she managed.

  • Triple S clears new cell phone towers

    The Triple S Planning Commission Tuesday cleared the way for two new cell phone towers in Shelby County, but not before the public had its say during the meeting.

    The Southville tower, to be built at 6596 Mt. Eden Road, caused the most intrigue from the community, but not much of a protest.

    New Cingular Wireless, the company building the towers, had asked for a 30-foot waiver on the setback from the neighboring property line, building the tower 170 feet from the adjoining property.

    The commission denied the request, saying it wasn't necessary.
