  • Sharing the highway

    Is there a lack of consideration between cyclists and motorists?

    For one Shelbyville resident, that question is a resounding yes.

    “You’ll get people come right up behind you and honk their horns, within inches of you, any cyclist will tell you that,” said Jerry Tinney.

    As he adjusted his helmet and tugged on his gloves at the corner of 6th and Main streets, he gestured toward the roadway and passing vehicles.

  • Crews working at burned Dollar General

    The former Dollar General Store off Boone Station Road is finally starting to buzz again.

    Not with the shoppers, but with activity finally cleaning up the mess left after a fire on Jan. 13 gutted much of the store.

    Workers in rubber gloves have been carrying out mounds of debris, while others are driving forklifts full of fire debris from the building on Mount Tabor Circle near Kroger.

  • Shelby looks strong at home all-comers

    In the girls’ standings, SCHS took the runner up spot with 106 points, 65 behind Male.

    Collins’ tennis teams earned a pair of wins over a visiting Spencer County squad on Tuesday afternoon.

    The girls’ team gutted out a close 3-2 win, while the boys earned a clean sweep 5-0 over the Bears.

    In the boys’ first singles competition, Jared Baltzell shutout his opponent, 6-0, 6-0 while second singles Jason Anderson followed suit with the same result.

    Third singles player Jacob Hisle helped in a two-set, 6-0, 6-0 win over Spencer to push Collins to 3-0 in boys’ singles competition.

  • Late rally by Marion County holds off Collins

    Headed into the seventh inning on Tuesday night, Collins baseball was doing solid work on the mound to help limit Marion County to just a 6-2 deficit.

    Starting pitcher Austin Ruble had turned in a very efficient four-and-two-thirds innings for the Titans, allowing just six hits and three earned runs while striking out five batters.

    But Marion County (4-1) plated four runners in the top of the seventh, capitalizing on two Titan (3-3) errors and jumping out to a 10-2 lead with just a half inning left to play.

  • VAN STOCKUM: My Marine Corps Journal 1937-42, Part 29: Jerry Smith flies into the wild blue yonder

    Note: I would like to express again my appreciation to Wendy Noble, younger sister of Spitfire pilots Jerry and Rod Smith, who has provided advice and copies of her trove of documents concerning her brothers’ lives. In doing so I would like to quote from The Spitfire Smiths by Rod Smith, with Christopher Shores. In his Introduction, Shores writes: “Throughout I have been greatly assisted by Wendy Noble without whose efforts I certainly could not have completed this account...”

  • A healthy evening

    With screenings of all types, and even more relaxing activities – such as massages and trying on Derby hats – the hundreds that flocked to Claudia Sanders Dinner House Monday for an annual women’s wellness fair came away well pleased, especially after a fried chicken dinner and a decadent dessert spread.

    The dinner was just icing on the cake, however, as the overall theme of the 12th Annual JHS Women’s Wellness Affair was promoting women’s’ health.
