  • EARLIER: Shelby police officers not held to fitness standards

    On a tragic afternoon at a house in Shelbyville last month, two Shelbyville Police Officers grappled with a teenager who they say was hitting them with a variety of items.

    Both officers were struck, one severely, before, police said, a female officer drew her gun and shot and killed 18-year-old Trey F. Williams.

    Among the many questions that emerged from that confrontation, in which two officers apparently failed to subdue one younger and larger individual, is this: How physically fit are the men and women trained to protect and serve the citizens?

  • Shelby County passes 6 feet of rain, but it's not the record

    A soggy spring has led to a down right damp fall as Kentucky is setting records from east to west for rainfall this year.

    And although Louisville and Frankfort have new yearly highs, Shelbyville isn't quite there yet.

    The National Weather Service doesn't keep statistics for Shelbyville, but according to a Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network volunteer located just outside the city, there has been about 67.38 inches.

  • 3rd Street in Shelbyville is open to traffic

    Monday was the last day that drivers will be inconvenienced by the closure of 3rd Street and Old Mount Eden Road because of construction there.

    The road was closed for several hours the past two Mondays to allow Norfolk Southern Railroad to replace its railroad bridge located near the intersection of 3rd Street and Bradshaw/Goodman avenues.

    The project finished on schedule, which is what Shelbyville City Engineer and Public Works Director Jennifer Herrell  said she expected.

  • Some cool visits in the winter

    The Short-Eared Owl has always been a winter resident of Kentucky, but beginning in the late 1980s, this species was found nesting on a large reclaimed mine site in Ohio and Muhlenberg Counties.

    This 15-inch long bird, with a 38-inch wingspan, often can be observed in a Central Kentucky on open land at dusk and dawn and is our most aerial owl. You will notice them flying back and forth, hunting over pastures, hayfields and other grassy or weedy areas and have a habit of hovering.
