  • WHAT WE THINK: We need to get fair

    This back and forth between the Shelbyville City Council and the Shelby County chapter of Kentuckians for the Commonwealth needs to end.

    At this point, both sides are getting tired of hearing the other speak and we’re all just spinning wheels.

    The most recent dialogue – we won’t really call it a conversation because neither side seems to be listening at this point – seemed to leave both council members and visitors exasperated.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Our administrators, teachers and students

    As a new school year gets underway today, we want to take the time to congratulate all those involved.

    It’s no easy feat to get 11 schools, each with their own set of employees, cafeterias, maintenance crews and more, ready each year.

    It’s not easy for teachers to get those classrooms and lesson plans ready to stimulate young minds and get them prepared to face the rigors and tests ahead in the new school year.

  • MY WORD: Royalty among the burger crowd

    A few weeks ago, a large crowd of family and friends turned out to celebrate the landmark birthday of a man whose landmark enterprise helped to feed a generation of you.

    This man in 1967 set up shop at the far eastern extreme of Shelbyville, where he began to cook up burgers and rings to feed the McDonald’s-less, fast-food-craving young masses of Shelby County, which he accomplished to an amazing level of success.

    That restaurant was Burger Queen, and its king was LaMar Nutt.

  • MY WORD: Making sense of unemployment

    In the April edition of Readers Digest there is an article by David Brooks, an op-ed columnist for the New York Times entitled “The Stem and the Flower.”

  • MY WORD: Confused by confusion at JHS

    A recent encounter with some local medical professionals has left me wondering how, and why, there is a facility in Shelbyville known as a “hospital.”  After dealing with my father’s passing in January 2014, my mother had two questionable mammograms this spring, which lead her doctor to prescribe a needle biopsy, or a stereotactic biopsy.  The procedure was scheduled for June 23, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at Shelbyville’s Jewish Hospital.
