  • A touch of class at SCHS

    For Rick Parsons, this boys’ basketball season could be titled Back To The Basics.

    For Parsons, Shelby County’s first-year coach, the 2010-11 campaign has been as much about teaching as it has been about coaching.

  • Warriors’ boys complete seasonal sweep

    The West Middle boys’ basketball completed a regular-season sweep of East Middle on Monday night.

  • Immigration bill raises questions

    The immigration bill that the state Senate passed last week has sparked quite a debate.

    Senate Bill 6 passed just before the start of a 3-week adjournment, but the discussion hasn't stopped just because lawmakers left Frankfort.

    This past weekend, the Kentucky May Day Coalition organized a meeting of groups, which included about 80 people who oppose this Arizona-style immigration policy.

  • Lawyers may test city’s sidewalk law

    A group of local lawyers is planning to meet with citizens and business owners to discuss the possibility of testing Shelbyville's sidewalk ordinance.

    Attorney Austin Hays said he, Vic Brizendine and Gilmore Dutton, all with offices on Main Street, have had clients and business and property owners ask them about the ordinance.

    "We've discussed it, and we've had several property owners mention it to us, so we thought we'd try to organize something to see what some people think about it,” Hays said.
