    A small donut shop on Midland Trail is closed with a small, hastily scrawled, handwritten sign taped to the door, proclaiming the shop closed until further notice due to a family emergency.

    Is there a lack of consideration between cyclists and motorists?

    For one Shelbyville resident, that question is a resounding yes.

    “You’ll get people come right up behind you and honk their horns, within inches of you, any cyclist will tell you that,” said Jerry Tinney.

    As he adjusted his helmet and tugged on his gloves at the corner of 6th and Main streets, he gestured toward the roadway and passing vehicles.

    The former Dollar General Store off Boone Station Road is finally starting to buzz again.

  • Late rally by Marion County holds off Collins

    Headed into the seventh inning on Tuesday night, Collins baseball was doing solid work on the mound to help limit Marion County to just a 6-2 deficit.

    Starting pitcher Austin Ruble had turned in a very efficient four-and-two-thirds innings for the Titans, allowing just six hits and three earned runs while striking out five batters.

    But Marion County (4-1) plated four runners in the top of the seventh, capitalizing on two Titan (3-3) errors and jumping out to a 10-2 lead with just a half inning left to play.
