  • Candidates dish at forum

    A candidate’s forum Tuesday night sponsored by Shelby County Farm Bureau gave both candidates for state representative the chance to air their views and expound on their platforms.

    The event, held at the Stratton Center, drew a crowd of about 60 people, said Kentucky Farm Bureau Agency Manager Pat Hargadon.

    “We were quite pleased with the turnout,” he said, adding that both Rob Rothenburger and Cyndi Powell-Skellie were in attendance.

  • “There is no way to actually replace her,” Scott Moore, publisher

    After today, there will be a big void at The Sentinel-News with the retirement of a longtime employee that everyone considers as dear as a member of their own family.

    Publisher Scott Moore paused when speaking about Sharon Warner, an employee of 44 years, whose title of senior production specialist doesn’t begin to encompass all that she does at the newspaper.

    “We’ll find somebody to fill that role, but there is no way to actually replace her,” he said. “She’s a tremendous employee.”

  • Minimum wage increase was topic at forum

    Although attended by only two residents, members of the fairness group Shelby County Kentuckians for the Commonwealth say they are pleased with a forum held Wednesday night to address the issue of raising the minimum wage.

    The event, held at the Stratton Center, featured speaker Dustin Pugle from the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy. 

  • Post 37 keeps to its winning ways

    After trailing for six-and-a-half innings of play, Shelbyville Post 37’s offense woke up in a big way, scoring six runs in the bottom of the seventh inning, and paving the way for another tournament victory.

    The game didn’t start off going Shelby’s way, however, as Post 37 fell behind Lyon County Post 68 early.

    Following two innings of offensive stalemate between the two teams, Lyon drew first blood with an RBI single in the top of the third inning.

  • Shelby reaches District 2 final

    Shelby County’s 7-8 year old All-Stars smashed its way through the Kentucky District 2 Tournament before falling to Nelson County in the championship game.

    “This was a heartbreaking loss,” head coach Nathan Poole said. “We made a couple of mistakes defensively that hurt us that inning, but you have to give credit Nelson County for getting the hits they needed to win.”

    The team locked up the number one seed after going 5-0 in pool play, and outscoring its opponents by a combined 97-27 run total.

  • Horse show nearly a go

    Final preparations are underway for The Shelbyville Horse Show, which kicks off Wednesday night and runs through Saturday.

    Organizers say the 27th annual horse show will draw thousands each night for both the show and the fun, fellowship and food on the sidelines.

    “We expect as good or a better show than ever,” said R.H. Bennett, the Shelbyville Horse Show manager.

    Gates open at 6 p.m. each day, with the show starting at 7 p.m. More than 300 horses are expected to compete in nearly 60 classes over the 4-day period.

  • Community rallies around disabled woman to raise money for special van

    Tammy Redmon lives a quiet life; she has never been nationally recognized or cited for any daring act of heroism.

    But the 52-year-old Shelbyville woman greets each day with as much dignity and courage as she can muster in her lifelong battle with lymphangioama, a condition that has left her wheelchair-bound with an amputated leg.

    Still, she preseveres with the help of a specially equipped van with which she can travel to necessary errands, such as doctor's appointments.
