  • EARLIER: Shelbyville releases its list of 'domestic pets'

    Chickens in the city of Shelbyville are not considered "domestic pets."

    Shelbyville City Council amended an existing ordinance Thursday relating to the keeping of animals in the city limits to define better which animals are considered "domestic pets."

    That more specific list includes domestic dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, chinchilla, hamster, gerbil and ferret. The proposed list originally included mouse, rat and reptile, but the council decided to scratch those from the list.

    Chickens were never on it.

  • A young man decides to leave home and seek his fortune elsewhere

    There seems a tragic irony that in the year that Shelby County’s greatest sports star and ambassador, Mike Casey, left our world, the young man who one day may have succeeded him has left the county.

    Casey was Kentucky’s Mr. Basketball in 1966 and led Shelby County High School to its first state championship. He went on to a storied college career at UK and became a symbol for achievement among Shelby Countians.
