  • Boosting a rare breed

    When visitors from all over the country - and the world - visit Buck Creek Stables March 14-16, they will be participating in an effort to save the headquarters of one of the rarest breeds of horses in the United States.

  • Shelby tops region's seatbelt survey

    When John Evans was a bachelor, he rarely wore his seatbelt.

    He said his habit was to just hop in his truck and go.

    But when he became a family man, his days of not being buckled in came to an end.

    "When you start having kids, wearing your seatbelt becomes more of a priority," he said. "It's just a given."

    A recent study performed by the Kentucky State Police, found that, like Evans, wearing a seatbelt is a high priority for most people in Shelby County.

  • Agrees with editorial

    Your recent article on the repeal of the sin tax was dead on; giving the tax already collected back to the merchants is nothing more than a windfall for them.

    It is my understanding that merchants raise the price of an item to cover a tax. Therefore, what they paid to the Revenue Cabinet was NOT out of their pocket. There is no way they can return it to the customers that actually paid it (I being one).

  • Lady Rockets upset in region first round

    South Oldham's Jordann McGuffin hit a lay-up with 8.9 seconds to play to give the Lady Dragons a 37-36 upset win over Shelby County in the 8th Region Tournament first round Tuesday at Shelby County High School.

    It looked as though the Lady Rockets would advance as they led 36-33, but South cut the lead to one with a short jumper, and then a rough exchange near midcourt resulted in South's Lauren Jones scooping up a loose ball and hitting a streaking McGuffin for the game's final points.

  • Independence Day(s)?

    Today, when people think of American independence, they think of the fourth of July. But labeling a single day of independence is not easy.

    Most people don't look at a calendar and see March 5 as any sort of holiday, but the tragic events that occurred 238 years ago today played an important role in American history.
