  • Man charged in Scott once taught in Shelby

    A Bagdad man arrested Saturday and charged with sexual abuse of two Scott County middle school students was at one time a substitute in Shelby County.

    According to Shelby County Public Schools, Edwin Casper, 66, was hired as a substitute in November 1998 and employed in that capacity through June 1999.

    However, he did not seek reemployment after that, and no complaints were logged against him during his 8 months on the substitute list.

  • Our Valentine’s Day: Sweet but very simple

    Are you on the trail for unusual, extravagant or over-the-top Valentine's Day gifts?

    You'll come up short in Shelby County.

    Don't worry though. A county with traditional and conservative values doesn't come up short in the romance department. There are plenty of delicious meals, flowers and jewelry to make any honey happy.

    But there's no $18,500 olive tree, like Angelina Jolie gave her hubby Brad Pitt in 2010. Of course, Kentucky's not exactly the right climate anyway.
