  • The greatest story ever reported

    And in the same country, two editors were keeping track over the newsroom by night.

    And, lo, an angel of the Lord came before them, and the glory of the Lord shown round about them.

    But they weren’t afraid, because they knew this was Fred, a neighbor in St. Peter’s Loving Arms Apartments.

    “I have glad tidings of great joy,” he said. “Which shall be unto all people.”

    They shook their heads.

  • What we think: Lots of progress occurred in 2011

    When we first sat down to measure Shelby County’s success against the goals we had set for it last January, we were expecting to be disappointed. Had we really accomplished anything on our list other than getting a commitment from state highway officials to do an early remedy for the dangerous Exit 32, eastbound from KY 55 onto Interstate 64?

    That was stellar work, to be sure, but we also know that there could be difficulty designating the dollars required to accommodate a project we were told could begin next year. Does that tinge this tout?

  • Rhyme and reason for the season: 2011 version

    We’re here again with our holiday verse,

    To bring you a cheer or maybe a curse.

    But we hope for a smile from ear to ear,

    Our goal is only a bit of holiday cheer.

    So with only  apologies to Clement Moore,

    Our Night Before In Shelby is your reading chore.

  • What we think: New judicial center is money well spent

    Shelby Countians awoke this morning to perhaps the most wonderful new public facility in the more than 200 years of our history – the Shelby County Judicial Center.

    We don’t know how residents in the early 1900s reacted to the opening of the Shelby County Courthouse, and we set aside the oooos and aaaaaahs for new schools, because those tend to happen and bring new educational wonders every decade or two.

    But we believe the center on the corner of 4th and Main streets in Shelbyville is a building of which all residents should be proud.

  • We congratulate: All the ways we celebrate the holiday season

    Some have labeled us as Sentinel-News Scrooges for suggesting that the Celebration of Lights in Shelbyville is scheduled too early and infringes on Thanksgiving.

    We still believe that it is, but we will set that aside for now to recognize another dead-on Santa certainty:
    Lots of people in Shelby County love to celebrate the holidays.
