  • EARLIER: Running to the aid of the Browns

    Shelby Countians often have proven they have soft spots for their own.
    They have been quick to praise when it’s deserved and even quicker to help when duty calls, and that’s never been more evident than this holiday season.
    With Christmas shopping, parties and events dotting a hectic week, several Shelby Countians are showing new levels of support in their efforts to assist the Brown family, who lost their daughter and their home to a fire early Sunday morning in Waddy.

  • EARLIER: Shelby Energy to seek nominations for board opening

    Shelby Energy Cooperative, under fire for a lack of transparency by its board and how it handles vacancies through appointments and elections, now seems to be responding to members' concerns and opening up that process.

     

    When Joe Butler resigned from the board in July after 47 years of service, he left with a full 3-year term still in front of him. Because Butler had been re-elected in June, the board has the right to appoint a member in his place.

     

  • A cool Yule parade

    Cold weather and a few inches of snow couldn't stop Santa and the Shelbyville Christmas parade Saturday.

    The parade went off with only a minor hitch despite flurries and icy conditions downtown.

    "That's the first time we've faced that kind of weather," Shelby County Fire Chief Bobby Cowherd said. "We were kind of running around all morning trying to figure out what we were going to do."

    Once they decided to move on with the parade, the crowd responded.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
