  • City of Shelbyville: State says annexation of Rubles’ property already done

    The City of Shelbyville and the Kentucky Secretary of State's office seem to have some communication problems.

    According to the state of Kentucky, the property at the southwest corner of Harrington Mill Road and Freedom's Way, the 72-acre property owned by Allen and Tom Ruble, is already a part of the city.

    "It appears the city assigned the same ordinance number to two different areas," said Kandie Adkinson, with the secretary of state's office. "The Ruble tract was received and filed by our office in June 2011."

  • Legislative districts on hold

    Franklin Circuit Court Judge Phillip Shepherd ruled Tuesday that House Bill I, which redefined new legislative districts in Kentucky – including those of state Sen. Paul Hornback (R-Shelbyville) and state Rep. Brad Montell (R-Shelbyville) – is unconstitutional.

    Shepherd’s ruling came down shortly before 4 p.m., a day after a 4-hour court hearing.

    House Republicans had requested a temporary injunction to extend the candidate filing deadline for state legislative candidates so the GOP could try to overturn the legislative election districts.
