  • WE CONGRATULATE: Biagi and his promotion in the GOP

    We were excited to have a Shelby Countian returning to Kentucky from Washington to help with Sen. Mitch McConnell’s work in the commonwealth.

    Michael Biagi grew up in Shelby County, and even though he left to pursue his degree and calling in life, he’s found his way back to Kentucky, within a furlong or two of his hometown.

    Biagi is replacing former Chairman and Executive Director Steve Robertson, who is leaving for a public affairs firm in Lexington. Biagi will take over the position Saturday.

  • WHAT WE THINK: The more things change...

    At this time last year our county was aflutter with talk of outlet malls, business expansion and a milestone year for one of our favorite community events.

    Here we are one year later and the conversation is still going.

    Our new outlet mall, which will be one-year old later this week, is already undergoing its first expansion.

    It made it through its first slow summer period with several days of packed parking lots and crowded walkways.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Cheers to the Shelbyville City Council

    Folks in and around Shelbyville have often lamented the choices we have for dinner dining.

    It’s not that we don’t like what is available, it’s that we don’t have that many choices, that much variety.

    That’s why the Shelbyville City Council’s move on Thursday was so important. The council got the process started to refine the requirements and regulations for a small craft brewery or distillery and restaurant to locate in the commercial and historic district downtown.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Summers focused on learning

    It should come as no surprise that Nolan Hughes and Emma Saarinen would be using their time wisely.

    The two Shelby County students have no doubt somewhat mastered the art of time management as they head into their second years at the Gatton Academy of Math and Science at Western Kentucky University.

    But the way the two are using their summers not solely for fun and a recharge, but to learn and take advantage of opportunity is not just admirable but also a bit envious.
