  • Preparing for trial

    Kameryn McCann presented her case before the judge, jury and public attendees on behalf of her summer camp client in the Summer Camp vs. Justin Burke case Monday morning in the Shelby County Courthouse.

    “Burke fell off of a cliff and became paralyzed while at the camp, and he also suffered with Type 1 diabetes but he failed to tell the camp about his diabetes,” McCann said. “They (the prosecution) are trying to sue the camp, but we’re trying to prove that it’s their fault.”

  • Board celebrates student success

    The Shelby County Board of Education did more celebrating than planning or budgeting Thursday.

    The board recognized Tyrese Patterson for graduation from Ascension Program at the Milestone Academy. Patterson entered the meeting to “Pomp and Circumstance” and received his diploma with Superintendent James Neihof, friends, family and former teachers there to help him celebrate.

    “It is a pleasure from time to time to have the opportunity to have a graduation ceremony as a part of our board meeting,” Neihof said.

  • Taking command

    A 1990 Shelby County High School graduate assumed command of the U.S. Army Reserve’s Theater Support Group Pacific in July of last year in a ceremony at Fort Shafter, Honolulu, Hawaii.

The group provides base operations and installation support to the 9th Mission Support Command, enables and enhances Soldier Readiness processing and provides support to civil authorities and mobilization in place.

  • Food Check-Out Week is next week

     While most of us right now are just thinking about getting a warm jacket on our backs, many across Shelby County have the added concern for a warm meal in their stomachs.

    According to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, one in six Kentuckians struggles with hunger at some point during the year.

    But this is a battle that can easily be fought.

    "American farmers provide us with a stable and affordable food supply," said Stephanie Tucker, Shelby County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee member.
