  • Titans take new route to victory

    BUCKNER – It wasn’t your typical Jerry Lucas-called football game.

    But it wasn’t a bad thing for Collins.

  • Rare birds to fill Shelby County air

    About 85 pilots will fill up the airspace over Moody Pike this weekend with aeronautical feats as high as 200 feet in the air and plummeting toward the ground before pulling up just feet over the grass.

    Of course, these pilots will be grounded for the entire third annual The Bruce F3K competition of discus launch gliders.

    The competition is the largest in the world, and the brainchild of Bruce Davidson, who lives on Moody Pike at the site of the contest.

  • Shelby County School Board: Southside plan gets 2 reviews

    The Shelby County Board of Education will get its first chance to chime in on the new Southside Elementary school project at Thursday’s 7 p.m. meeting at Painted Stone Elementary.

    The agenda is centered on a work session for board members to discuss the project with the architects from K. Norman Berry.

    The district will then hold a public forum for members of the community to discuss the needs, wants and features they’d like to see in the new building on at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Southside.

  • Suit against ICON back in circuit court – maybe

    The wandering lawsuit between developer William Hysinger’s ICON Properties LLC and a group of landowners in Shelbyville has continued its winding course from Shelby County to Oldham County through Frankfort and then apparently back to Oldham County.

    At issue is a dispute filed in 2009 by Frank and Judy Kees, Randall and Freda Stivers, Samuel and Jennifer Carl and Richard and Stephanie Head, who contend that ICON did not uphold its agreement to purchase 72 acres west of Shelbyville.

  • The impact of 9-11: Something really good did emerge

    This is the week for one of those winding, emotional and reflective cruises down the turbulent tributaries that feed those endless eddies stirred by a life-changing event.

    We don’t simply glance over our shoulders at the rapids that changed our course, but we stare at it, consume it anew and bring from our deep-sealed memories the emotions, the adrenalin that carried us through those waters to our anchorage of today.

  • A cool parade in Waddy

    Monday dawned wet and stormy, but people in Waddy were determined not to let rain and chilly temperatures keep them from enjoying their Labor Day festivities.

    “Heck, we’ve been busy since seven o’clock this morning,” said Tracy Steinmiller, who along with Helen McKinney, watched as people waded through the wet grass to browse through a myriad of items for sell at a yard sale in the church yard at Waddy Baptist Church.

  • What we think: We like plan to honor Squire Boone

    The concept being extended by longtime Shelby County native Joe Ruble to build an iconic statue of Squire Boone on the east end of Shelbyville is another significant and – we think – embraceable piece of entrepreneurship by a citizen who loves Shelby County and revels in its history.

  • What we think: State fair winners make us proud

    We love the Kentucky State Fair for many reasons, but one is that we just love seeing our friends and neighbors getting ribbons and prizes for doing what they love most to do.

    This is a time when dedication to talents and hobbies brings attention from everyone, when great cooking, a cool drawing, a beautiful quart of honey, a composed heifer, a perfect bale of hay and, of course, a studly and elegant horse draw the eye of a state and perhaps a nation.

  • Police seek woman for information

    Shelbyville Police are attempting to locate a Shelby County woman to get more information about a crime that  she is a victim of, they said.

    Police are trying to contact Angel M. Samples, 26, whose last known address was 81 Kent St. No. 8 in Shelbyville.

    She is described as a white female, 5 feet tall and weighing 152 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair.

    Anyone who knows the whereabouts of this woman is asked to call Shelbyville Police at 633-2326.
