  • WE CONGRATULATE: An unbreakable bond and a unique friendship

     

    University of Kentucky Junior All-American Willie Cauley-Stein often left us speechless on the court.

    At 7-feet tall he could glide across the floor with the quickness of men 2-feet shorter. His amazing athletic ability allowed him to soar above helpless defenders for rebounds and his rim-rattling dunks left chins dropped in awe.

    But on Thursday, Cauley-Stein left another indelible mark on us.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Flooded creeks are more dangerous than they seem

    It seems so simple.

    When water reaches out of the banks of a river, stream, creek or even a drainage ditch, we should stay out of it.

    Especially when it’s coming down, as they say, sideways, leaving every piece of ground saturated and every rivulet looking like the mighty Mississippi.

    But here were are again, as biblical storms threaten to fill Ohio Valley, we still have people trying to drive across flooded roads and bridges.

  • 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.

  • 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.
