    Continued outlet mall traffic worries

     

    To Shelby County Road department, our magistrate, KY Hwy district 5 and Simpsonville government,

    This is my second letter concerning the outlet mall traffic; someone is going to be injured over this bad planning.

  • WHAT WE THINK: What a week!

    Our normally sleepy, quiet community got quite the wake-up this past week.

    While the Shelbyville Horse Show normally perks up the area, it was even bigger and better than normal this year as it celebrated its 25th anniversary.

    One of the top shows in the country, the annual showcase of Saddlebreds brings in dozens of former World Champions as they prepare for the Kentucky State Fair World Championship, which begins next week.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: The American Legion Post 37 baseball team’s state title

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team wrapped up its fifth state title on Friday, earning a trip to the regional tournament later this week in Ashboro, N.C.

    This squad put together one of the best seasons in Shelby County history going 25-1 in the regular season and steam rolling the state tournament.

    What makes it even more impressive is that manager Jim Wiley continues to man the helm of a team that he’s led for 30 years.

  • MY WORD: The price of success

    This is from an article in the Wall St. Journal on July 19 entitled “This Way Up” featuring 18-year-old Dakota Blazier who will forgo a college degree in favor of a blue-collar career. He will join the 70 percent of Americans 25-and-older without college degrees.

  • MY WORD: Ponies, Handkerchiefs and Cheerios

    There’s a running commercial for a credit card company that asks the question, “What’s in your wallet?” The implication of the question is that the credit card you choose to carry says something significant about you.

    Of course, the intention of the ad is to convince us that a discerning individual wants to make sure they are carrying this company’s credit card.  Though I do not completely buy the sales pitch of this commercial, I have come to realize that what we choose to carry through our daily life says something about us.
