  • Fairway Crossing residents to make noise about noise

    Some residents along Interstate 64 are taking a concern about a noisy future to the Shelbyville City Council for its meeting on Thursday night.

    Members of the Fairway Crossing Homeowners Association off Mount Eden Road are concerned about how widening plans for I-64 might affect the tranquility of their neighborhood by bringing more noise closer to their doors and windows.

  • MY WORD: Here's a needed lesson in the art of tattooing

    Steve Doyle seems to be very poorly educated on the art of tattooing ("On Valentine's Day, no love loss for tattooing," Feb. 15). I am going to try my best to inform him without offending him, a quality he would be well advised to inherit (oops, there I go already).

  • MY WORD: Let’s review options before investing in statue of Boone

    I have been interested for some time in Joe Ruble’s proposal to erect a statue in east end Shelbyville to counterbalance the beautiful horse statue in front of the fairgrounds (“Help us to honor Squire Boone,” Feb. 22). While I have some reservations about the need for such a status, I think Mr. Ruble has picked the wrong man.

    The fact that he is distantly related to Squire would seem to me to be a conflict of interest. But that is beside the point; if we’re going to have a statue, Mr. Ruble is entitled to make the case for his candidate.

    Hurt, 47, a resident of Lawrenceburg, took Kentucky’s ancient oath – including swearing that he never had fought a duel – from Simpsonville Mayor Steve Eden, as his wife, Karen Hurt, and friend Stewart Shirley watched. He immediately went to work in required CPR and AED refresher classes.

  • STAPLETON: An apple a day? 2 proving better

    Studies constantly are proving that what you eat can be as powerful and more potent than a prescribed drug. Recently, it was proven that the presence of fresh apples in your diet could improve your memory and sustain brain health.

  • ‘Puppy mill’ case will go to trial
