  • Dealership to storage lot

    Eyebrows have been rising as the former Jeff Wyler Chevrolet Buick GMC lot on Taylorsville Road started filling up with trucks again over the last few weeks.

    After sitting vacant for nearly a year, there are now about 200 white incomplete work trucks occupying the space but despite people stopping by to look, there are no salespeople coming out.

    Rick Hill with Auto Truck Group, located in Kingbrook Commerce Center in Simpsonville, assures those vehicles are not for sale.

  • No crusade roadblocks

    In lieu of roadblocks, Shelbyville Fire and Rescue will concentrate their Crusade for Children collections efforts this year by means of seeking door-to-door donations.

    Shelbyville Firefighters say this decision was made due to safety concerns for themselves and their families.

    “One of the primary reasons is we’re concerned about the safety of the volunteers that are helping us collect,” Shelbyville Fire Chief Kevin Baker said, noting many who help collect do not serve in the department but are rather family members or volunteering civilians.

    Simpsonville Police Chief Chip Minnis called the group crime a substantial theft ring.

  • Election 2016: Primary Election Day goes smoothly in Shelby

    Election Day was going smoothly Tuesday, although officials weren’t sure what kind of a turnout they experienced at the polls when The Sentinel-News went to press.

    Early deadlines due to press issues forced the paper to print in mid-afternoon well before polls closed.

    Shelby County Clerk Sue Carole Perry said that no problems had cropped up of a technical nature, although that wasn’t the case with human nature, she said ruefully.
