  • Donald Farabee: 1950-2010

     

    “He was one heck of a nice guy!”

    Donald Farabee died Wednesday at his home after a battle with cancer, and Bruce Langley, his friend and former co-worker, cheerfully remembered Farabee’s personality.

    Farabee, 59, was known as a man of many roles, but those who knew him said his unifying characteristic in all roles was his kindness and easy-going nature.

  • East End concept to become reality

    The East End Study that will one day give Shelbyville’s eastside a new look is ready to be put in action.

    After Triple S Planning and Zoning approved the study and its suggestions last Tuesday, Shelbyville City County followed suit Thursday: It will adopt the plan as soon as possible. If an ordinance is needed, the plan will have to have two readings and won't be put in action until Feb. 18.

  • EARLIER: What we think: Let's limit smoking in restuarants

    A new and highly flammable issue will come before the Shelbyville City Council on Thursday night: whether smoking should be allowed in restaurants in the city.

    Resident Vladi Gomelsky has been trying to mount a campaign, largely using the social media Web site Facebook, that could lead to a change in local ordinances, and the council appropriately has agreed to hear his suggestion.

    We think Mr. Gomelsky has a good idea.

  • Crime Stoppers seek info on stolen trailer

    On Thursday, Jan. 7, a small box trailer was stolen from a truck parked at Ramada Inn on Breighton Circle.

    The theft occurred at about 11:15 p.m., when someone unhitched the trailer from the owner's truck and stole it, along with its contents.

    Video surveillance photos show the suspect's pickup truck arrive at the hotel without a trailer, then leave a minute later pulling the victim's trailer.

    The suspect's pickup truck is described as a dark green or blue regular cab pickup truck with no tail gate.

  • The proof is in the pudding -- or something like that

    Sometime during the past 10 years, though excavation of my mind has yet to render the moment with precision, I made the daunting and deflowering decision to try cooking.

    I’m not talking about microwaves or opening a lot of cans but of actually taking a recipe, attempting to enhance it and then serving it for the nourishment of family and friends.

    I have been judicious and timid in those efforts, but so far, no one has died, though I fear that day could come.

  • Tax assistance available at local agencies

    Some Shelby Countians have caught a break with the IRS.

    If you have a family income of $49,000 or less, or a single income of $15,000 or less, and those who are over 60 years of age, you qualify for free tax preparation from two local agencies who receive grants by the IRS, the AARP Foundation and the Metro United Way.

  • Local elk hunt on air this week

    Shelby County’s Kathy Smith will make her television debut this week on Huntin’ The World Southern Style on the Outdoor Channel.

    Smith filmed the show last October after she was selected in Kentucky’s lottery for elk tags. Not only did Smith receive one of just 1,000 elk tags, but her tag was also one of just 250 bull tags.

    After spending a day hunting with the show, Smith bagged a bull that weighed in at more than 800 pounds, field dressed, and was more than 9-feet long.

  • Roads slick, schools closed

    UPDATE 9:40 a.m.: Black ice and a layer of snow caused numerous accidents and road blockages and created a very treacherous Tuesday morning in Shelby County. Ice and about an inch of snow caught road crews by surprise, spawning those accidents and forcing Shelby County schools to be closed. Vehicles were sliding without even moving along U.S. 60, and a car was upside down on Buck Creek Road. Long lines of backups kept vehicles from moving up and down hills.

  • Rockets' 31-point second quarter leads to victory at North Oldham

    GOSHEN -- The Rockets rebounded from an early deficit to defeat North Oldham 84-75 Friday night.

    It was an emotionally charged game before it started, with North Oldham fans taunting almost-Mustang Darryl Hicks. But Hicks shook it off, and the freshman rode that intensity to 21 points and 10 rebounds.

    Three more Rockets scored in double digits: Boomer Beckley, Cache Tomlinson and Donovan Johnson. Johnson also had a double-double with 18 points, 11 rebounds.
