  • MARTIN: In a new role, it’s good to be home

    Hey Shelby County, it’s me Todd Martin, and it’s been a long time.

    I have not had a forum to tell you my thoughts since my time on the Sports Desk many years ago, but it’s nice to have this opportunity again. Although depending on who you ask, my thoughts may not run that deep.

    As many of you may know by now, I took over as Editor of The Sentinel-News a little more than one month ago, and it’s been interesting to say the least.

  • Letters to the Editor: April 23, 2014

    Thanks from Goodwill

     

    This past month, following a harsh winter that chilled donations by 7 percent statewide, Goodwill Industries of Kentucky launched a “March Gladness” campaign and the Shelbyville community really responded.

    We are pleased to report that donations increased by 9 percent during the month of March!

  • WHAT WE THINK: Look locally for all your needs, including education

    While we are certainly glad to hear that Corpus Christi has raised enough money and will remain open, we wonder why our local private schools have struggled to maintain a vibrant and strong population in recent years.

    Our churches never seem to struggle for members or volunteers, and our community has always had a strong attachment to its faith.

    But it seems as though many students in our county are sent west to Louisville parochial schools, but why?

    What would make a parent travel 30 miles or more for a high school education?

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Old Man Winter and his ability to surprise

    We finally thought it was safe. Furnaces were turned off, windows were opened and necks were slightly sunburned.

    We started to pack away our stocking caps and winter coats. Yes the long, cold, brutal winter was finally over.

    Or so we thought.

    We have long believed that you give credit where credit is due, whether you agree or not, and Old Man Winter deserves a little credit.
