Today's Opinions

  • WHAT WE THINK: Taking time to learn from our past

    On today’s front page we wrap up our annual Crime series that focuses on our important issues from violent crime to drug use and finally to traffic issues that include fender-benders and fatalities.

    It’s important that we look over this each year so we know where we stand, and where we as a community need to improve.

    Support for swim coach

     

    Losing J.P. LaVertu as the high school swim coach is a huge loss for Shelby County students.  Coach LaVertu has coached my daughters on the Shelbyville Stingrays – the summer team at the FAC – for the past three summers.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: A masterful move

    This weekend 14 brilliant and dedicated chess experts and masters descended on Shelbyville for a tournament, and while it didn’t draw the crowds – and they likely wouldn’t want the noise – of a Collins or Shelby County high school football game we were glad to see a less noticeable sport rearing its head in our county.

    While we are all for our usual competition of baseball, softball, basketball, football and the like, we were excited to hear that some are trying to provide new opportunities for our residents.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Where are Sen. McConnell’s less expensive schools?

    Shelby County received a rare treat last week with a visit from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Louisville).

    McConnell has a long history with Shelby County, including having his parents live here later in their lives.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Epic ending to Shelbyville Horse Show

    Saturday night’s Five Gaited Stake Grand Championship could not have summed up the 26th Shelbyville Horse Show any better.

    Famed trainer Redd Crabtree cast his final stamp on the show he helped create with former horse Epic Hero taking the coveted title.

    Our Shelbyville Horse Show could not have had a more epic finish.

    It’s almost as if Redd was saying his final goodbye, and in a way only he could have.

    But more than just honoring a legend, the 2015 version of the Shelbyville Horse Show was yet again one to remember.
