  • Mutual New Year's resolution for many: Not to resolve

    New Year’s resolutions have come a long way since the tradition began with the early Babylonians, when the most popular resolution was to return borrowed farm equipment.

    For decades, in the United States at least, the most-popular resolutions revolve around health, fitness and finances.

    How do Shelby Countians’ resolutions for 2011 stack up against these?

    Surprisingly, most people The Sentinel-Newstalked to said they didn’t worry about it.

  • Shelby's prominent deaths in 2011: Miller, Armstrong headline noted group

    The passing in 2011 of four men who showed their love for Shelby County in a variety of ways – with public service and determined legacies – left significant gaps in the foundation of the community.

  • Woman in police chase jailed after hospital release

    A Frankfort woman involved in a high-speed police chase through three counties has been released from the hospital.

    Rebecca Manley, 31, had stabbed herself six times in the neck with a knife before being taken into custody by Kentucky State Police on Tuesday, but her injuries were not that serious, said Hunter Martin, the trooper who initiated the traffic stop that led to the pursuit.

    Manley is lodged at the Shelby County Detention Center under a $5,000 cash bond, charged with DUI, fleeing and evading police and having no insurance.

  • WICHE: Reflecting on a new year in the garden and on the farm

    Hope you don’t mind that I take this opportunity to reflect a little. Another year is gone. I remember my elders marveling over this and how quickly time goes by, and I get it now.

    I have learned some this year, but I don’t necessarily feel smarter; I have aged some but don’t necessarily feel older; and I have made new friends that have taught me that there is always potential that has made me excited about the rest of my life.
