  • WHAT WE THINK: Shelbyville close to winning the trash race

    We feel a little bit like a jockey, astride a winning horse as it turns for home in the stretch run of the race of its life. We coax it along, encouraging it with our proverbial whip here and there, keeping our eyes on that final pole and knowing if we do what we’re supposed to do that victory for all is imminent.

    So it is with the city of Shelbyville’s plan to add curbside trash and recycling pickup for its residents, a wonderfully appropriate action that appears to be nearing that legislative quarter pole and making the bend into that final stretch.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: New faces, old winners on election lineup

    There is much to congratulate about the election year that is shaping up in Shelby County, but we will take second things first.

    We congratulate all the new individuals who have stepped forward to take a shot at public leadership this May and November.

    From state senator to the mayoral race in Shelbyville to its city council to three judgeships to a variety of magistrates, you will have new people to get to know and understand before casting your ballot. We look forward to the debate and the decision.

  • DOYLE: The way we played on snow days

    You would think that the huge release of warm air on Monday – that being the exhale of parents who were allowed to send their students back to school – would have offset some of this frigidity that has surrounded us.

    After a tease of tropics on Sunday, the reading was -4 on my barn thermometer Tuesday morning, even as a school bus drove past on the road below.

    Everyone is talking about the weather, and it’s not because they can’t think of anything else.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Shelby County's park trail deserves support

    If you own property on the northern side of Shelbyville and either Clay Cottongim or Shawn Pickens knocks on your door, don’t turn them away or call the authorities.
