  • Give Shelbyville some credit

    We put a lot of value on certain numbers. Some of us lie or express shame when sharing our weight, height or age.  But in all actuality, those numbers have little merit in comparison to your credit score. 

    A numerical representation of your financial habits, your credit score speaks volumes about you and a low number can have dire consequences on your daily life. 

    A poor credit score can prevent you from opening a credit card, purchasing a home, buying a car or obtaining a loan. 

  • Tourism tax will restore second burned lot

    An historic lot is ready to blossom once again in Shelbyville.

    Located at 617 Washington Street the Chatham House was the second lot ever purchased in Shelbyville.

    Built in 1845, the historic structure that once stood there was at one time a private home before being turned into apartments and even served as a brothel.

    The most recent owner, Lucy Kerman and her husband, Mark, were working to restore her father, Dr. Charles Chatham’s home when a fire destroyed the structure in April of 2013.

  • Titans fall to Cooper in state quarterfinals

    Sometimes, it just isn’t your night.

    The Collins boys’ basketball team experienced that firsthand on Friday evening, falling in the KHSAA Sweet 16 quarterfinals to Cooper, 58-33.

    The Jaguars dominated the game thoroughly from the opening tip to the final buzzer. Cooper jumped out to a 17-4 lead after one quarter of play, holding Collins to just 1-8 shooting as a team in the opening frame.

    From there, Cooper never looked back, holding the Titans to just 23 percent shooting for the entire game and 17 percent from behind three-point range.

    Collins boys basketball accomplished something on Thursday night that it never had in school history up to this point –  winning a game in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Sweet 16 Tournament.

  • Tradition of dedication to industry

    Picture a community completely devoid of industrial parks, only two large companies, and only a small water supply barely adequate to serve its residents.
