  • New board member at Centro Latino

    Dan Feeser has come on board as Centro Latino’s newest board member.

    Feeser, who is director of engineering/innovation for Diageo North America, relocated to Shelbyville for the new Bulleit Distillery project on Benson Pike.

    He said that he and his wife have enjoyed living in Shelbyville so much that he has decided to retire here after completing this year’s Leadership Shelby program, giving him a chance to redirect his energy into making Shelby County an even better place to live.

  • New cops on the beat

    Three new police officers are on the job at the Shelbyville Police Department; all fresh from the police academy.

    The three new officers graduated from the academy on a Friday and began at Shelbyville P.D. the following Monday, said Shelbyville Police Chief Danny Goodwin.

    “They all graduated from the police academy on October seventh, and they have started their training with us,” said Goodwin.

    The academy consists of 23 weeks of training at Eastern Kentucky University.

  • Men with a mission

     

     


    For the past half-century, Bobby Hudson and Marshall Long have worked side by side to expand the industrial climate in Shelby County.

    They have been together so long they may be losing their separate identities, what with having birthdays only one day apart, on Saturday and Sunday, joked Hudson.

    “Mine is on the [October] twenty-second; his is the twenty-third,” he said.

    Both will be 80 years old this weekend, although Marshall said he isn’t owning up to that.

  • Leadership Shelby under new leadership

    For the first time in 15 years, Leadership Shelby has a new person at the helm that has been a board member of the organization since graduating from the program herself in 2012.

    MaryAnn Gramig took over as executive director in July, replacing longtime director Rosemary Riggs who retired the previous month.

    “It’s been going great so far,” she said, adding that Riggs has since provided some invaluable advice.

  • Collins defeats Shelby for district title

    In an all-Shelbyville final for the District 30 championship, the Collins High School volleyball team defeated Shelby County three sets to one to clinch the district title on Tuesday night.

    “We were solid at times, and inconsistent at others,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “I’ll give all the credit to Shelby County, they played hard.”

    “I thought we played amazing,” SCHS coach Kristen Kapp said. “This is a complete one-eighty from where we were in August. I’m very, very proud of them.”

  • Collins falls to Oldham County

    The Collins boys soccer team faced off against a top-ranked Oldham County squad on Tuesday night, and came up just short, falling 4-1 in the second round of the Region 8 tournament.

    “Obviously a tough loss ended our season,” Collins coach Jamil Shalash said. “Oldham County is a very good team. We had a good bit of control, we just couldn’t get it in the net.”

    Early in the contest, the Titans did a good job of dictating the pace at which the game moved, notching four shots on goal and limiting the Pioneers offense.

  • Titans host Rockets in district showdown

    Both Shelby County and Collins high schools will sport winning records when the teams take the field tonight for the ninth game of the season.

    “We know it’s a big game,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “It’s going to come down to the district championship right here, and the important part of that is home field in the playoffs.”

    The Rockets (6-2, 3-0 district) are currently in the driver’s seat in district play after demolishing Spencer County 62-31 last week.
