  • EARLIER: Parents protest after-school change

    A large crowd of upset parents showed up at the school board meeting Thursday night to voice concerns about a proposed change in the school system's after-school day care program.

    Winter appears to be over, and that means that construction will resume next week on the Shelbyville Bypass.

    A spokesperson for the new owner of the Holiday Inn Express in Shelbyville said his company expects to clear up a tax problem that forced the state to shut down that hotel this week.

    The Kentucky Department of Revenue had closed the hotel Tuesday because JMG LLC of Modesto, Calif.,  its former owner, owed the state $58,388.83 in unpaid taxes. A permanent injunction was obtained through Franklin Circuit Court, and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office worked with state officials to enforce that order.

    The Shelby County Public Library will have a free showing of the hit movie Twilight on Thursday at 5 p.m.

    Sherry Bogard, with children's services at the library, said she is glad to be able to offer the free showing to the public because she feels the film is suitable for young viewers, even though the movie's theme centers around a vampire romance.

    "Everybody I know loved the books and the movie," she said.
