  • WICHE: Take care in moving your plants outdoors

    Our current warm sunny weather has made everyone just delighted and the intoxication of it all may lead us to act impulsively.

    I am as eager as anyone to move some of my houseplants outdoors. My gardenia looks terrible in the dining room, and the jasmine downstairs seems to stare into space dreaming of better days.

    Those days are coming, but just be slow about the transition from indoors to out. 

  • SCHS sets graduation for June 12

    After a meeting with students Thursday morning, Shelby County High School Principal Eddie Oakley said the school will hold graduation on June 12, at 7 p.m. at the Frankfort Civic Center.

    “We sent E-mails to parents, did a one-call to let them know and then we talked to students this [Thursday] morning, and it was still about 50-50 [between June 8, and June 12],” he said.

  • Easter keeps hopping along -- too often in the wrong direction

  • April Fool: Bypass work doesn’t resume

    April Fool's Day, the opening construction day for work on the Shelbyville Bypass, dawned bright and sunny.

    Well, at least contractors Kay and Kay are consistent.

  • EARLIER: New school out date: June 8

    The Shelby County School Board voted unanimously Thursday to extend the school year until June 8, with graduation currently scheduled for Saturday, June 12. The last day for staff would be June 9.

    Four members of the board - Doug Butler, Eddie Mathis, Alan Phillips and Brenda Jackson - voted for the later closing date. Board member Sam Hinkle was absent from the meeting.

    This decision sparked a lively discussion on The Sentinel-News' Facebook page.

    Gary Kidwell, the director of student accounting and support services, provided the board with six options:

  • Tennis: Boys lose opener to South Oldham

  • New developments to carry own water weight

     

  • EARLIER: Fund set up for 'hero nanny'

    Alyson Myatt is recuperating at home with her family after being released Wednesday from the burn unit at the University of Louisville.

    A fund has been set up for Myatt to help her pay medical expenses she incurred after being badly burned saving the life of a 5-year-old boy she carried from a burning house.

    People may make donations on Myatt’s behalf at Republic Bank in a fund called Aly Myatt Hero Nanny.

  • Egg-traordinary adventure

    They stood, noses quivering with excitement, waiting for the signal to take off.

    No, it wasn’t opening day at Keeneland, but any throughbred would have been hard pressed to keep up with the dozens of squealing, laughing children who sprinted away eagerly in search of Easter eggs.
