  • Decades of devotion

    It’s not too often that you see a successful business voluntarily close its doors.

    But after 36 years, Moore’s Automotive Service Center on at 2000 Midland Trail will do just that at the end of the year.

    That’s because its owners, brothers Glen and Dennis Moore, are retiring.

  • County votes in Sunday sales

    This weekend will be the first time residents will be able to purchase packaged alcohol in county businesses on Sunday, except the county has yet to issue an alcohol license.

    On Tuesday the Shelby County Fiscal Court passed on second reading the county’s new alcohol ordinance, moving from the longstanding moist status to a fully wet county with the inclusion of Sunday sales.

  • County judge-position to change

    On Dec. 31, Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger’s 14-year tenure will end when he steps into his new role as the 58th District’s state representative.

    By then, a new face will be in place to head up the Shelby County Fiscal Court, he said, adding that his deputy judge-executive, Rusty Newton, is also stepping down and taking a different job in county government.

  • Rockets fall short of visiting Centurions

    The Shelby County High School boys’ basketball team dropped its fourth straight to open the 2016-17 season, falling 56-42 to Christian Academy-Louisville.

    The Rockets (0-4) got off to a slow start on both sides of the ball, scoring just eight points in the first quarter and nine points in the second.

    CAL (1-1) had no trouble getting points at the basket, and the Centurions held a 32-17 lead at the conclusion of the first half.

  • Anderson edges past Collins

    Despite holding a 28-23 lead over Anderson County at the half on Tuesday night, the Collins High School girls’ basketball team could not come away with its first victory of the season.

    A 23-point performance by freshman guard Olivia Federle was not enough to avoid a winless start to the year for the Titans (0-4).

  • Collins picks up win at Franklin Co.

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team is now on a two-game winning streak after going on the road and defeating Franklin County 70-54 on Tuesday night.

    The Titans’ (2-1) disruptions on the defensive end of the floor led to some confusion for the Flyers (2-1), as Franklin struggled to establish offensive consistency.

    “We created 19 deflections and 18 steals for the game,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “Our length can really bother people if we use our feet to stay in front and have active hands.”

  • Assumption defeats Shelby in low-scoring contest

    Offense came at a premium when Shelby County girls’ basketball traveled to Louisville to take on Assumption on Tuesday night, as the two teams combined for just 63 points.

    The contest was a defensive struggle with the two teams shooting low percentages due to some excellent defensive efforts.

    “Defensively, we were really good,” SCHS coach Jason Holland said. “We forced 27 turnovers and held them to 24 percent shooting.”

  • Woe, Christmas tree

    Down at the fire station, jingle bells start ringing. One cries, ‘Do you hear what I hear?’ and suddenly, they know it’s not going to be a silent night.

    Dashing through the snow, they arrive to see your roof roasting with an open fire. With Jack Frost nipping at their nose, they pull out their hose and deck your halls with water.  Clearly it is not going to be a Holly Jolly Christmas this year.

  • APT holds grand opening

    The grand opening of the new location of Associates in Pediatric Therapy in Shelbyville drew a large crowd Tuesday afternoon, but those waiting patiently for Governor Matt Bevin to help cut the ceremonial ribbon got left out in the cold.

    The opening ceremonies kicked-off around 4 p.m. but the continuous updates regarding Bevin’s ETA left attendees waiting for the ribbon cutting ceremony in suspense for more than an hour. 

  • SHELBYVILLE CITY COUNCIL – Special meeting Monday for alcohol ordinance

    The Shelbyville City Council will put Sunday alcohol sales and early time exemptions to a vote Monday with a special called meeting at 5:30 p.m. at city hall.

    The council discussed the matter when they met last Thursday and asked for a draft ordinance to expand the city’s alcohol ordinances to permit sales on Sundays to mirror the county’s recently expanded ordinance that passed second reading on Tuesday.

    Shelbyville Mayor Tom Hardesty said at the time the purpose of the discussion was to avoid putting city vendors at an economic disadvantage.
