  • Winter storm closes Shelby County schools on Monday

    Shelby County Public Schools will be closed on Monday, as snow continues to pound down on the county on Sunday night, blanketing streets with about two inches of powder that sometimes was atop a layer of ice.

    Even as SCPS officals spent Sunday evening evaluating roads,  residents reported drifting snow and icy conditions around the county and in surrounding areas.

  • We congratulate: Collins’ Karas for her state title

    There are so many firsts these days for Collins High School that perhaps we need to develop a time capsule and put inside it a long list to record them all.

    We make this suggestion in the wake of the historic – by several definitions – performance of cross-country runner Caterina Karas.

    There are so many firsts these days for Collins High School that perhaps we need to develop a time capsule and put inside it a long list to record them all.

    We make this suggestion in the wake of the historic – by several definitions – performance of cross-country runner Caterina Karas.

    She became the first state champion for the Titans, overpowering all competitors to win the Class AA championship in Lexington.

  • Shelby student starts blog for charities

    Joseph Martin, a junior at Shelby County High School, came up with the idea of doing a blog for local charities as a leadership project for a Governor’s Scholars program.

    “It will be a comprehensive blog where charities can list what their needs are and their mission statements,” said Starla Martin, Joseph’s mother.

    Martin said the idea came from a mission trip to Hazard he had made several years ago, and now he has launched aid4shelby.blogspot.com.

  • The gifts of Christmas past came in our simpler process

    The little girl regarded the question from the corpulent man in a bright red suit. Her dark, almond eyes were caught somewhere between enamor and fear but dead-on serious. There was no smile, but no tears, either.

  • Man's standoff with police ends in peaceful surrender

    A quiet neighborhood just east of Shelbyville was shut down by a swarm of police officers Thursday, when a man barricaded himself in his house and threatened to do harm to police and himself.

    William Cain, 56, surrendered peacefully to Kentucky State Police shortly before 2 p.m. some five hours after his wife had called 911, summoning police to their home on Frankfort Road, near Shelby County High School.

    Police declined to name the suspect, because he was taken into custody for evaluation of mental issues, but neighbors confirmed he was Cain.

  • What we think: It's time for action on these issues

    We understand that during election season issues that have no immediacy will be placed on back burners by legislative bodies, allowing them to remain just warm enough to be alive but not gurgling and bubbling loud enough necessarily to be noticed.

    Members of those bodies campaigning for re-election are sensitive to decisions that may attract controversy, and they don’t want to see these campaigns waylaid by a vote on an item that just as easily could be done in December as August.
