  • Barn-leveling tornado creates another storm

    Once again, Shelby County escaped almost unscathed during the latest tornadic episode to hit Kentucky, which blew across the county on Friday afternoon.
     

    Although the F-1 tornado that the National Weather Service reported roared through Finchville at 100 miles per hour that afternoon caused no injuries and little property damage, it left some residents quite shook up.

  • Behind the doors of the Charles Todd House

    In restoring their 182-year-old home near Eminence they bought in 1983, Lawrence and Sherry Jelsma have kept almost all of its original features, and the effect is startlingly akin to being transported back in time.

    One can almost see the women with their long skirts sweeping the floor and hear the clop of horses' hooves along the brick walkway that still graces the front of the stately old brick home.
