  • We congratulate: Centenary's steps to help Puckett

    We think it’s a wonderful thing that the folks at Centenary United Methodist Church want to do for Duanne Puckett – again.

    They are raising money to buy her a new van, and we don’t think anyone deserves the assistance more than Ms. Puckett, because in her story is inspiration for all of us.

  • We congratulate: New owners of bowling alley

    We were glad to see that real estate professionals Larry Rogers and Donald Hamilton have stepped forward to purchase at foreclosure the former Bluegrass Bowling Center.

    We’re pleased that this valuable piece of property is in the hands of men who have been dedicated to the development of Shelby County.

    But they – and all of us – need your help.

  • SOUDER: Is that what the Sheriff said?

    One of my favorite movies is the 1969 Western comedy, Support Your Local Sheriff, starring James Garner (as a wise-cracking, quick-drawing sheriff), Harry Morgan, Walter Brennan and Jack Elam (in a show-stealing role as a stable-hand turned deputy).

  • SOUDER: Thanksgiving (to God), by George

    Asked to write a composition entitled, "What I'm thankful for on Thanksgiving," 7-year-old Timmy wrote, "I’m thankful that I’m not a turkey!"

    Maybe this Thanksgiving you feel like that little boy – that the only thing you can think of for which to be thankful is that you’re not a turkey. Perhaps your life isn’t going like you had hoped it would.

  • What we think: Shelbyville PD did the right thing

    This range became an issue in October 2009 because of concerns raised by a former sergeant about officers’ firing live ammunition in the vicinity – a few hundred yards – of two elementary schools and aimed in the direction of one of th

  • Thanksgiving thesis: The meal is the deal

     There is something unique and almost mystical about the transformation this week of places we clutch to our bosoms for their warmth, comfort and familiarity.

    Maybe it’s our home or the place where our parents live or have lived. Maybe it’s a sibling’s apartment, a friend’s condo or the old maple dining table at your grandparents’ house.

  • What we think: This intersection requires inspection

    The suggestions have been arriving for weeks now, and we think it’s time for action.

    The topic is the new intersection at U.S. 60 and KY 55 that was designed and constructed to accommodate its connection with Freedom’s Way, Shelbyville’s new bypass.

  • What I saw: Some confusion but I found my 'Way'

    Sentinel-News Editor Steve Doyle set out to drive on the new Shelbyville Bypass as soon as it opened Wednesday afternoon. This is what he saw.  

    The call said the bypass was open. After all these months and all these delays, that information had to be verified. After all, we have been fooled a time or two, hadn’t we?
