  • What we think: School board’s menu is fit for our kids

    Through a report last week to the Shelby County School Board, we now understand that our children are eating healthier at school than we might have expected.
    Shelby County Public Schools appear to be ahead of the new federal guidelines that are being handed down – guidelines that we believe are much needed in feeding kids who too often prefer a meal to be a soft drink and some French fries – and we find that to be a delicious concept.

  • We congratulate: Performance of Shelby’s EMA

    The report to Shelby County Fiscal Court last week that Shelby County’s Emergency Management Agency is performing among the best in the state illuminates a very important aspect of our community.
    All of us depend on Director Charlie Frazee, Deputy Director Paul Whitman and all those affiliated with EMA to keep us informed and safe during times of danger and difficulty.
    It’s comforting to understand that we are being cared for by some of the best in Kentucky.

  • Final applause for Sen. Tapp

  • 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.
    The awards, announced at a banquet Friday night in Louisville, included first places in such high profile categories as Editorial Writing and Investigative reporting, and the newspaper finished third as the Best Multiweekly Newspaper for 2010.
    In 2009, when the paper was named the best in the state, it won the same number of awards but fewer first-place awards.

  • 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.
