  • WHAT WE THINK: SCPS made sound decision to attend sessions, not stop school

    As educators descend on Frankfort again this week to fight for their pension rights, we’re proud that Shelby County Public Schools has a presence among our legislators.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Nichols family shows us how important it is to give back

    The Nichols family should serve as role models for us all.

    For years George Nichols III and his wife, C.J., have been giving back to Western Kentucky University and focuses on helping first-generation college students make a successful transition to college.

    For continued support the school recognized Mr. and Mrs. Nichols as the Philanthropists of the Year in December.

    The Nichols family lived in Shelbyville for 20 years, Mrs. Nichols is a native of Shelby County, and we should be proud to call them one of ours.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Hemp could be the boom farmers need

    Bourbon, basketball and horses have long held the national headlines for the state of Kentucky, but they’ll have to make room for one more soon.

  • Family time is the real gift during holiday season

    Christmas morning was a blur at our house.

    Paper was flying, toys were being played with to the sound of shrieks and gleeful delight and the dog was trying to steal someone’s new beef jerky.

    We raced from around the tree to our traditional breakfast of sausage, egg and cheese casserole and homemade cinnamon rolls and cheese Danish. And there’s no rest for weary as we moved directly to the Beyblade Arena, hooking up Alexa and all her accouterment, flying drones and more and more and more.

    It didn’t seem like we stopped.
