  • Harris gets sport's highest honor

    Don Harris was a small-town-Indiana guy who had learned a bit about showing and training horses when he arrived in Simpsonville in 1969.
    When he left, the world had changed for him and the horses he touched – and for Shelby County.
    Harris, who now lives and works in Cox’s Creek, was honored Saturday night by the United States Equestrian Federation with its Lifetime Achievement Award, the organization’s highest honor, which once also was won by Harris’ former across-the-road neighbor, Helen Crabtree.

  • Sentinel-News wins 21 awards

    Staffers from The Sentinel-News took home 21 awards – including seven first-place awards – in the judging by the Kentucky Press Association.

  • Shelbyville gives 1st OK to rate bump

    The Shelbyville City Council got back in action Monday with a special called meeting to replace last Thursday's meeting that was cancelled because of weather.

    A short agenda didn't lack punch, though.

    Shelbyville Municipal Water and Sewer Manager Tom Doyle received approval on first reading for a 3.85 percent increase in water and sewer charges.

    The board will have a second reading at the next meeting on Feb. 3.

    Doyle brought several board members and employees with him to the meeting, but the increase was not really questioned.
