  • No Oldham game?

    No one can seem to remember. I can't find one person who even says, 'Well, maybe that one year...'

    Nope, nobody knows the last time Shelby County and Oldham County didn't play each other in basketball during the regular season.

    It's a shame really that it won't happen this year, but it's nobody's fault, just a victim of the weather, power outages and school closings.

    It's hard, or nearly impossible, to add many games to the schedule this late in the season.

  • Shelby County man indicted on charges he raped 2 juveniles

    Police are looking for a Shelby County man who has been been indicted on two counts of first-degree rape of minors.

    Christopher Broughton of Fisherville Road was charged by a Shelby County Grand Jury with “engaging in sexual intercourse through the use of forcible compulsion” involving two different victims. He also is charged with one count of first-degree sexual abuse.

  • Artist’s portraits of influential figures coming to Shelby

    In his younger days, Maine artist Robert Shetterly was actively fighting for civil rights and against the Vietnam War.

    More recently, he was upset with the U.S. response to the events of Sept. 11, 2001, so he began to paint portraits of past and present Americans who spoke the truth as he saw it, and with those portraits he combined quotes from the individuals.

  • Shelbyville, Triple S discuss comprehensive plan

    The Shelbyville City Council and the Triple S Planning Commission held a workshop Wednesday evening to discuss some of the early goals and objectives of the 2010 Shelby County Comprehensive Plan.

  • Schools closed again on Wednesday

    The power is not yet on for all.

    Both Shelby Energy and Kentucky Utilities report they are dealing with nagging problem areas in restoring electricity to all their customers in Shelby County.

    As of Tuesday, Shelby Energy still had more than 500 homes in Shelby County, most of them in confined areas.

  • Serial arsonist indicted

    James Aaron Clark, 27, of Shelbyville, who confessed to setting nine house fires, was indicted Wednesday for first and second-degree arson and criminal mischief.

    Clark, arrested in October after his confession, was indicted on one count of first-degree arson, a felony that carries a penalty of 20 years to life, three counts of second-degree arson, also a felony, one count of first-degree criminal mischief and three counts of third-degree criminal, charges which were also related to the fires.

  • EARLIER: Shelby under winter weather advisory

    Just as officials have begun to make progress on power outages in the county, it's looking like more snow could be on the horizon for this week.

    The National Weather Service is predicting highs in the 30s and 40s for this weekend but warns of  snow blowing back in again Sunday night and lingering throughout the week, with temperatures plunging once more.

    How will more snow affect the power situation?

    Officials are trying to clear the roads and power lines as much as possible before new snow and ice cover them again.

    For dishes greater than one meter in diameter, there are several updates.

  • Goody's to liquidate and vacate

    Shelbyville soon will lose one of its most popular shopping destinations.

    Goody's Family Clothing Store started a liquidation sale Thursday and, along with all of the 282 other stores in the chain, will close its doors in the next few months. 

    The announcement, which was made public on Wednesday, was released before store employees were notified.

    On Wednesday afternoon a cashier admitted that she had heard customers talking about the closure but had heard nothing official from local and national management.
