  • Escorting the heroes

    The motorcycles were out in full force Tuesday, accompanying the remains of three decorated war veterans to a rest stop in Shelby County, where they took a 5-minute break and picked up locals who joined their brigade,

    Destination: Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

    David Haynes, Head Ride Captain of the Patriot Guard Riders in Louisville, stood with a hoard of other riders at the rest stop awaiting the arrival of the escort.

    After a turbulent year of layoffs and cutbacks, Martinrea Heavy Stamping will close its doors, probably next month.

    Plant Manager Shawn Aldesberger confirmed Thursday afternoon that the company will shut down because of what he called "uncompetitive wage rates."

  • Sixth Street Live crescendos in Shelby

    Downtown Shelbyville is about to hear a new beat on a different street.

    On May 22, Sixth Street will close down for the year's second Sixth Street Live concert.

    "I think all of us sort of like the ambiance of Sixth Street because it has the sort of Americano look to it," said Tom Waggener, owner of Main Street Bikes.

    "It [Sixth Street] has little traffic anyway, so it's an easy place to close down and have a street concert."

    Now, as a junior, Eden can add a title in the 3,200-meter race to long list of top five and top 10 finishes. Eden took the title at the State Track and Field Meet at the University of Louisville on Saturday.

    Somehow, under the rainbow  

    Version No. 13 was not unlucky for Relay for Life, which generated more than $82,000.

    No pot of gold was found at the end of the rainbow that formed Friday night just moments before the survivor ceremonies began at the 13th annual Relay For Life, but participants did have something better to celebrate -- life.

  • Old ‘mates, new marriage and life’s special moments

    My old second baseman married one of my old pitchers on Saturday.

    And, no, this wasn’t one of those controversial, newfangled marriages of the new millennium. One of them was a woman.

    She played second base to my shortstop on our sixth-grade softball team, which was coed for reasons of necessity. We wouldn’t have had enough players for gender-specific teams.
