  • WHAT WE THINK: Solid waste center can succeed as regional hub

    After $3.2 million and a year in operation, the Shelby County Solid Waste and Recycling Center still seems to have as many questions as answers.

    Recycling is actually down about 25 percent at the center – from 516 tons last year to 389 tons this year – but that’s largely due to the City of Shelbyville’s franchise agreement with Republic Services that went into effect in early January, as well.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Holiday gifts can be about more than what's in the box

    With the turkey, cranberries and pumpkin pie all washed down and leftovers dwindling, we can fully turn our attention to the Christmas season.

    However, those of you shopping for gifts have likely already gotten underway with your holiday favorites of Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and, of course, Cyber Monday – if we are not careful, we’re going to run out of days.

    But let’s stop for a second and look back over those days of consumerism, and think about our one special day that is tucked there in the middle.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Sam Eyle’s lasting impact on charity

    Last week Sam Eyle unceremoniously stepped down as the director of the Serenity Center, but we certainly think more should have been done.

    Mr. Eyle grew the Serenity Center from a somewhat unknown small counseling center at Shelby Christian Church to the area’s premier food bank, which still offers counseling.

    He oversaw the center’s move and revitalization of rundown building on Frankfort Road and then three years later to the former Emergency Management Building on 7th Street, where it really blossomed into the major player it is today.
