  • WHAT WE THINK: The more things change...

    At this time last year our county was aflutter with talk of outlet malls, business expansion and a milestone year for one of our favorite community events.

    Here we are one year later and the conversation is still going.

    Our new outlet mall, which will be one-year old later this week, is already undergoing its first expansion.

    It made it through its first slow summer period with several days of packed parking lots and crowded walkways.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Biagi and his promotion in the GOP

    We were excited to have a Shelby Countian returning to Kentucky from Washington to help with Sen. Mitch McConnell’s work in the commonwealth.

    Michael Biagi grew up in Shelby County, and even though he left to pursue his degree and calling in life, he’s found his way back to Kentucky, within a furlong or two of his hometown.

    Biagi is replacing former Chairman and Executive Director Steve Robertson, who is leaving for a public affairs firm in Lexington. Biagi will take over the position Saturday.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Parents need to be ready for the start of school

    One week from today, Rocket Lane, Discovery Boulevard, Warriors Way and other streets will be backed up with teary-eyed parents and sleepy-eyed students returning to school for the 2015-16 school year.

    As we celebrated on our special back-to-school edition front page today, we, too, are ready for school to start.

    With each school year, students have in front of them the opportunity to learn and grow. But while every education can only be what you put into it, it’s also important to remember that parents can have a major impact on student learning, as well.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Epic ending to Shelbyville Horse Show

    Saturday night’s Five Gaited Stake Grand Championship could not have summed up the 26th Shelbyville Horse Show any better.

    Famed trainer Redd Crabtree cast his final stamp on the show he helped create with former horse Epic Hero taking the coveted title.

    Our Shelbyville Horse Show could not have had a more epic finish.

    It’s almost as if Redd was saying his final goodbye, and in a way only he could have.

    But more than just honoring a legend, the 2015 version of the Shelbyville Horse Show was yet again one to remember.
