  • WE CONGRATULATE: Our new district court judge

    A new name will quickly be acquainted to Shelby County as Betty Springate takes over as our new Distict Court Judge serving Shelby, Anderson and Spencer counties.

    Mrs. Springate brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position that she will hold until the first of the year. And she will alleviate a great deal of pressure and work from Judge Donna Dutton, who was serving for both Division I and II.

  • MY WORD: The power – or speed – of the press

    When I moved back to Shelby County several years ago, I was driving east from KY 55 onto Interstate 64 when an idea nearly hit me right in the side of my SUV or maybe right between my eyes.

    Questions redistricting choices

  • What we think: The 4th of July is more than fireworks and food

    As you plan your holiday weekend barbeque – or hot dog feast, whichever (see our Neighbors Section) – and family get together, take a minute, or more, to remember that this is more than just a day off from work.

    So often Memorial Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day and the 4th of July are treated as mere days off work, a way to jump start a weekend or plan a party or extended weekend out of town, but we’d all do better to take time to remember what those days mean and why they’re recognized as days off.

  • We congratulate: Mike Miller and the Rabb family

    Last week we were shocked to learn for the first time about the Rabb family.

    What should be heralded as one of Shelbyville’s finest families, the Rabbs were introduced to us by Mike Miller and Rev. Robert Marshall.
