  • Ed Marksberry is running for U.S. Congress in the 2nd District, but a lot of people may not know who he is.

     

    His Republican opponent, incumbent, Brett Guthrie, has raised more than $1 million, and his ads have graced newspapers and TV sets throughout the 21 counties in the district.

     

    Marksberry, however, said he made a vow early on not to accept contributions to his campaign from corporations so his work has been on a much smaller scale.

     

  • The polls open at 6 a.m. Tuesday, and voters in Shelby County should be ready.

    Very little has changed for registered voters in the county: Only one of the 34 polling locations has moved, affecting about 850 in Cropper.

    "We sent letters out to everyone in that voting district, but some people are still confused," Shelby County Clerk Sue Carole Perry said.  "Both [magisterial] candidates [Bill Hedges and John Lewis] have told us they've received calls from people asking if they had to go to Bagdad to vote."

  • U.S. Representative Brett Guthrie (R-Bowling Green) stopped in Shelby County on Monday to visit with area firefighters and EMS workers and take a tour at Clear Creek Park.

    But Guthrie, who is campaigning against Democrat Ed Marksberry of Owensboro for Kentucky's 2nd District Congressional seat, which he won in 2008, also wanted to reply to a few comments made by his opponent in The Sentinel-News on Friday.

  • Jack Conway asked about 30 supporters that showed up outside the Shelby County Courthouse on Thursday morning to gather in a little closer.

    Like a coach before the big game, Conway was urging his team of Democrats on in support of his bid to be Kentucky's next U.S. Senator.

    "I'm asking you, Shelby County, can we carry this county?" he asked.

  • Republican Bill Hedges has filed to run for magistrate in District 4 in Shelby County.

    He is unopposed until the general election, when he will face one of three Democrats who have filed for the seat being vacated by Cordy Armstrong's retirement from the court.

    "I have lived in Shelby County most of my life, and my goal is to help keep it a great place to live," Hedges said. "The transport industry has been my occupation for over 30 years as dispatcher, safety director and truck driver."

  • Wednesday, the first day to file for office in the 2010 election, found four Shelby County officials meeting up at the county clerk's office to file for re-election at the same time.

  • The Republican offshoot Tea Party has been making national headlines for more than a year now. With rallies all over the country and even as close as Louisville, the group has taken the nation by storm with its Taxed Enough Already motto.

  • Magistrate Mike Whitehouse has filed to run for a sixth term in the magisterial District 7, which encompasses much of the southern part of Shelby County.

  • Democrat John C. Lewis of Bagdad has filled to run for Shelby County magistrate in District 4, a seat currently held by Cordy Armstrong.

    Lewis, in his first race, said he was inspired to run for office by a desire for community involvement as well as out of a sense of admiration for his parents, Jack and Stella Lewis, who were politically oriented.

    "Dad served both as a deputy sheriff and later as Shelby County Jailer, and mom was instrumental in the rise of the Shelby County Democratic Party in both local and state races," he said.
