  • GUEST EDITORIAL, State Sen. Damon Thayer: Bill could change school dates for 2018-19

    As we turn the page on July 2017, I find myself asking the same question once again, “Is summer over already?”

  • WHAT WE THINK: Senate Bill 50’s best mark leaves decision to local boards

    Smiling students – or at least half awake students – boarded buses and piled out of cars this morning for the first day of school after a long and restful summer break.

    And while it may seem very early to be back in school, we must remember that they’ve been out since well before June 1, and there are three two-week breaks coming this school year – one in October, another in December and again in April.

  • Park plans solidified

    A downtown project put in motion last fall is another step closer to fruition after a presentation by tourism officials to the Shelbyville City Council Thursday night.

    Katie Fussenegger, executive director of the ShelbyKY Tourism Commission, along with architect Jeremy Adams with Studio Kremer Architects of Louisville, presented renderings of the park that will be located on the 600th block of Main Street.

    The park will be located at the site of a devastating fire that destroyed three historic downtown buildings that houses businesses in March 2013.

  • Horse show starts tonight

    As the hours count down to the opening the 28th annual Shelbyville Horse Show tonight, organizers are just holding out hope for a cooperative Mother Nature.

    The show’s manager, R.H. Bennett, said that everything is going smoothly and the only thing left is hope for good weather despite forecaster’s predictions of thunderstorms Wednesday through Friday.

    “I don’t worry about things I can’t control, I just deal with it as it comes,” he said.

  • Boys’ golf get quick start

    At Monday’s Rocket Invitational Tournament held at Weissinger, both Shelby County and Collins boys’ golf teams each earned strong top-10 outings.

    The Titans slotted in with a fourth-place finish, and a team score of 335, and the Rockets took sixth with a team score of 351.

    Collins’ stroke leader in the event was freshman Cole Ruttinger, who shot a team-best 80.

  • Stump gets 20 years for rape of child

    Stump gets 20 years in rape and incest case

    By Lisa King

    A jury trial for Jessie Allen Stump of 110 Ada Ave. in Shelbyville, charged with rape and incest against children, culminated with a 20-year sentence in Shelby Circuit Court Tuesday.

    The case is several years old, as Stump, 64, was indicted in July 2012 on two counts each of first-degree rape and incest of two female children to whom he is related. He was serving as their sitter.

  • Shelby, Collins open with home tourneys

    Both Collins and Shelby County high schools were able to kick off its seasons with a pair of home tournaments over the weekend.

    In the second and final outing of the week, both teams held strong at the inaugural Lady Titan Challenge Monday afternoon, Shelby was able to earn a third-place finish as a team with a final score of 363.

  • Shelby captures state championship

    While Shelbyville Post 37’s game against Owensboro was a contest that went down to the wire on Thursday night, the state championship game between Shelby and Lyon County Post 68 was a one-sided affair.

    Post 37 outscored Lyon early and often, taking the title in a lopsided 16-3 win in the title game Friday.

    “Our guys just wanted to win badly,” Shelby coach Matt Buresh said. “We had the close win against Owensboro the night before, and we just wanted to close it out, and we did.”
