     All those trailers are sold

    The few trailers that remain in Breighton Circle should be out by this week. All the trailers were sold during the auction, held by H. Barry Smith Auctioneers, on May 15 and were supposed to be out of the lot by last Friday, but Jimmy Willard, co-owner of the company, said a few buyers and Internet bidders needed a little extra time.

  • Calvin Schmidt: 1927-2010

     With the passing of Calvin Schmidt, Shelby County has lost a prominent citizen, a benefactor, but most of all, a friend.

  • Paul, Conway run away with Shelby

    Rand Paul’s romp to the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate got a big boost in Shelby County, and the county helped state Attorney General Jack Conway surge ahead early on the Democratic side.

    These two-horse races had been called close at times, but that didn’t pan out in Shelby or elsewhere in Kentucky – at least as far as Paul was concerned.

  • EARLIER: Young softball team coming into its own

    Many of the SCHS softball team's early losses had to do with its youth.

    The Rockets have six upperclassmen, but a couple key positions (like pitcher and designated hitter) have been filled by sophomores and freshmen.

  • EARLIER: Top-seeded Rockets riding surge

    Shelby County's 7-2 defeat by St. Xavier on April 22 may seem like just another loss in a 20-10 season, but that game marked a turning point for the Rockets.

    Since then, Shelby has gone on an 8-1 run in which it has outscored its opponents, 79-23, and improved its batting average to .331 and its on-base percentage to .432.

    The changes have put the Rockets just where they'd like to be going into the 30th District Tournament on Monday.

  • Business Q&A: Harriet Massey

    In 1985, Harriet Massey left her job as a home economics teacher at Jefferson County middle schools and opened the Needle Nest in Shelbyville. The store, at 702 Washington Street, on Saturday had a day of celebration, with more than 100 people visiting the store. Massey is a 35-year resident of Shelbyville, and she and her husband have two sons and three grandchildren in California. She talked recently with The Sentinel-News about her shop.


  • SOUDER: Truth, tolerance and the American way

    Near the beginning of the comedic movie remake of Homer’s Odyssey, O Brother Where Art Thou? (which I unfortunately cannot recommend because it contains quite a bit of unnecessary profanity), the three main characters are divided over which of them should be the leader.

    The first defiantly steps forward, points to his chest, and says, “I’m with yours truly!”
