  • Susanne of Allen Dale Farm, Part 1: The birth of ‘Little Susanne’

    On November 10, 1911 James W. (Will) Henning suffered a second and final failure, losing his seat on the New York Stock Exchange. This was a disaster from which he never recovered.

    Despite his estranged wife Sue Henning’s opposition in 1909 to the marriage of their daughter, it must have given her some pride. She started a scrapbook about this time, the first items being newspaper clippings of the prominent New York wedding of her only child, Susanne, and Marquis Antoine de Charette.

  • Park hit hard by flooding

    From baseball to golf to fishing and camping, the recent rains have wreaked havoc with the activities and conditions at Clear Creek Park.

    With rising water over the dam at Lake Shelby access to fishing and camping grounds is closed.

    “It’s about the worst I have ever seen back there, it’s closed,” assistant parks director Jeff Long said. “The area back by the dam looks pretty bad. Up in front of the park [by the golf course] water is right by some of the greens.”

  • Weathering the storm

    Monday and Tuesday’s rounds of storms hit Shelby County hard – and one man felt Mother Nature’s wrath personally.

    Timothy Magnum was driving west down Washington Street Monday afternoon just as the day’s first storm hit, and he was met with the shock of his life, he said.

    “I had just thought, ‘man, the sky sure looks bad,’ and then, bam! Something hit the roof of my truck, like, I don’t know what,” he said.

  • SHELBY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD – New voting districts selected with apprehension

    After postponing its decision on countless occasions, the Shelby County Board of Education has at last settled on a new voting district map.

    State regulation requires that the population of school board voting districts fall within ten percent of one another.  However, with the map unchanged since 1999, the numbers in Shelby County were vastly unbalanced.

    The topic has appeared on numerous board agendas over the past year, but repeatedly board members have been unable to come to an agreement.
