  • MY WORD: Royalty among the burger crowd

    A few weeks ago, a large crowd of family and friends turned out to celebrate the landmark birthday of a man whose landmark enterprise helped to feed a generation of you.

    This man in 1967 set up shop at the far eastern extreme of Shelbyville, where he began to cook up burgers and rings to feed the McDonald’s-less, fast-food-craving young masses of Shelby County, which he accomplished to an amazing level of success.

    That restaurant was Burger Queen, and its king was LaMar Nutt.

  • MY WORD: Making sense of unemployment

    In the April edition of Readers Digest there is an article by David Brooks, an op-ed columnist for the New York Times entitled “The Stem and the Flower.”

  • MY WORD: Confused by confusion at JHS

    A recent encounter with some local medical professionals has left me wondering how, and why, there is a facility in Shelbyville known as a “hospital.”  After dealing with my father’s passing in January 2014, my mother had two questionable mammograms this spring, which lead her doctor to prescribe a needle biopsy, or a stereotactic biopsy.  The procedure was scheduled for June 23, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at Shelbyville’s Jewish Hospital.

  • MY WORD: Concerned for animal rights

    I would like to thank Linda Ethington for her compassionate letter (Animal Rights, Page A4, July 16) concerning the plight of chained dogs, and to let her know that there are people fighting for this cause.

    On July 28th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Dogs Deserve Better (DDB) founder Tamira Thayne chained herself to a doghouse on the Capitol steps in Frankfort to bring attention to the plight of chained and penned dogs. Representatives from Speak Out and Rescue (SOAR) and the Franklin County Humane Society joined her.

    Continued outlet mall traffic worries

     

    To Shelby County Road department, our magistrate, KY Hwy district 5 and Simpsonville government,

    This is my second letter concerning the outlet mall traffic; someone is going to be injured over this bad planning.

  • WHAT WE THINK: What a week!

    Our normally sleepy, quiet community got quite the wake-up this past week.

    While the Shelbyville Horse Show normally perks up the area, it was even bigger and better than normal this year as it celebrated its 25th anniversary.

    One of the top shows in the country, the annual showcase of Saddlebreds brings in dozens of former World Champions as they prepare for the Kentucky State Fair World Championship, which begins next week.
