  • Where art and sport mix

    A popular art teacher is mixing creative ideas with a trendy sport, and adding a little flare to Shelby County Public Schools’ summer enrichment opportunities.

    Zachary Hypes, Shelby County Teacher of the Year and art teacher at East Middle School, is combining art with skateboarding, scooting and rollerblading at the Shelbyville Skate Park.

  • Bourbon Cellar opens soon

    Businesses keep rolling into Shelby County and a wine tasting, bourbon, wine and beer retail venue will open soon in Shelbyville.

    Instead of being the neighborhood liquor store, owner Julie Fadel wants shopping at Bourbon Cellar to be an experience, similar to distilleries around the area and state.

    The new business plans to open within 60 days and will offer bourbon, craft beer and wine. But as a nod to the neighborhood liquor store, Fadel will offer tobacco products and lottery tickets.

  • ShelbyKY Tourism director selected for Leadership KY

    What makes a leader?

    One person might say dedication and perseverance, another might expound on industry knowledge.

    But Leadership Kentucky (LS) wants to educate community leaders throughout the state by showing, not telling, leaders about the issues and triumphs of businesses, governments, nonprofits and social institutions to expand knowledge and assess issues from a broader perspective.

    Katie Fussenegger is one such student.

  • Fiscal Court introduces admin code amendment

     Shelby County Fiscal Court introduced an ordinance that would alter the county’s administrative code at its regular meeting last Tuesday. 

    The change would allow for easier pay alterations for county employees. 

    “This deals with the consumer pricing index,” Judge-Executive Dan Ison said. “It is not a retroactive raise for this court.”

    Ison said the change would instead alter the rules by which the court could administer raises. 

  • Triple S approves five zoning changes

    Triple S Planning and Zoning approved the five zone changes that Fiscal Court requested from them at their regular monthly meeting.

    The planning commission voted to unanimously approve all the zoning changes the court placed before them, rezoning several plots of land to residential and agricultural and doing away with the older commercial zonings.

    “The property owners in this area approached magistrate Eddie Kingsolver and approached him on some issues with the property being zoned commercial,” said Planning and Zoning Chair Ryan Libke.

  • Churches need to open up to women in leadership

     To millions of women, Beth Moore is an icon of spiritual wisdom and teaching. She has also become, most unexpectedly, a lightning rod of sorts within evangelical circles.

    For years, Ms. Moore spoke to her legion of followers with not a whiff of controversy, but that quickly changed when she published an open letter to men (which you can read at this link: blog.lproof.org/2018/05/a-letter-to-my-brothers.html), especially men in church leadership.
