  • WE CONGRATULATE: The Cardinals and #TEAMBLAKE

    We could all take a moment and learn from the Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks and Rec. Cardinals instructional league baseball team.

    This group of 8-and-under sluggers literally put their teammate on their backs for the season and came through as a gritty underdog to win the league’s postseason tournament title.

    Questioning Diageo waste plans

     

  • WHAT WE THINK: Something stinks with city garbage delay

    Somehow we fail to see the problems that are plaguing the city of Shelbyville and its leaders in regards to getting a curbside trash and recycling franchise agreement put together.

    Once the ordinance was approved this spring, all that was left was for the council to submit the Request for Proposal and wait for the bids from Republic, Rumpke and Waste Management to come in.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Our new district court judge

    A new name will quickly be acquainted to Shelby County as Betty Springate takes over as our new Distict Court Judge serving Shelby, Anderson and Spencer counties.

    Mrs. Springate takes over the position after longtime judge Linda Armstrong retired in March.

    Mrs. Springate brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position that she will hold until the first of the year. And she will alleviate a great deal of pressure and work from Judge Donna Dutton, who was serving for both Division I and II.

  • MY WORD: The power – or speed – of the press

    When I moved back to Shelby County several years ago, I was driving east from KY 55 onto Interstate 64 when an idea nearly hit me right in the side of my SUV or maybe right between my eyes.

    Because that notion arrived dangerously quickly with  the 75-mph motion of oncoming traffic into which I was trying to merge or arose frighteningly fast in front of me in the form of the guardrail at the end of the acceleration lane on that ramp. I can’t be sure which, because each seemed about to christen me with opportunity.
