  • Shelbyville rocked at Mid-South Regional

    Though Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 dropped its first two games and was eliminated from the Mid-South Regional in Enid, Okla., last week, Coach Jim Wiley said he's still proud of his baseball team.

  • Shelbyville 2009 tax rates to stay level

    Shelbyville's property tax rates will likely remain the same for yet another year.

  • List of 'domestic' pets set by council

    Shelbyville City Council amended an existing ordinance relating to the keeping of animals in the city limits to better define what animals are considered "domestic pets." That list includes: domestic dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, chinchilla, hamster, gerbil, ferret. The proposed list originally included mouse, rat, and reptile but the council decided to scratch those from the list.

    Non-domestic animals are not necessarily banned from the city, but they do face restrictions -- like having to be contained in a clean pin at least 100 feet away from the property line.
