  • MARTIN: Finding time for a healthier taco night

    Iused to think that New Year’s resolutions were silly, a weak-minded way to make myself change.

    If I wanted to change during the year, I’d just do it.

    And in my younger years, I would. It was easy, I’d just implement whatever change I needed to make.

    More exercise – no problem. I’ll start running today and hit the gym tomorrow.

    Read more – check. I’ll just set aside an hour each day to devote to my newest book.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Tax will help improve city for residents, tourists

    We’d like to say thank you to the Shelbyville City Council and Mayor for ensuring some improvements will come to our fine county seat.

    By passing the 3 percent restaurant tax during Thursday’s meeting, the city not only ensured an estimated $700,000 in funding for quality of life and community enhancement projects, but they also guaranteed that our tourism commission will be getting the word out on everything we have to offer.
