  • Panhandlers may be lying, police say

    Perhaps you’ve seen an occasional person standing around on a street corner holding up a homemade sign asking for help.
    And while officials say Shelby County doesn’t have a big problem, they do note that many are not honest.
    “We get numerous complaints from people saying somebody is out here doing this or that,” Shelby County Sheriff’s Detective Mark Moore said.
    One man in particular has been seen standing out in front of Walmart next to Wendy’s restaurant, and most recently, at interstate ramps, Moore said.

    Waddy sisters Hailey and Mary Lynn Pawley were recently crowned Kentucky queens at a Pure International Pageants state event earlier this month.

    While they’ve both earned crowns in various local pageants through the years, the girls said their new titles are the highest they’ve earned so far.
