  • WHAT WE THINK: Council needs to give HRC work a vote of confidence

    On Thursday the Shelbyville City Council once again heard a presentation recommending the city act on and adopt a Fairness Ordinance that would expand civil protections to not only LGTBQ residents but also national origin, age over 40 and marital status.

    This time, however, was different. In the past presentations have been made by somewhat outside groups.

    A good person

    We have a good person in Paul Hornback, our current state senator (R-Shelbyville), but I don’t think he should continue representing us.

    Sen. Hornback believes that life begins at conception therefor he doesn’t support abortion except for rape and incest. Rape and incest life also begin at conception. No one supports abortion. Some of us however think that critical life events are better left to family, medical professional and spiritual leaders not the legislators.

  • GUEST EDITORIAL: Follow Danville’s lead on smoking ban

    Editor’s note: A smoking ban has been discussed in Shelbyville and Shelby County in the past but never acted upon. There are some bans in place with government and school buildings but no city or county-wide bans have been brought to a vote.

    This week marked the 10th anniversary of Danville’s smoking ban, which means employees, customers and essentially everyone in the city has been breathing healthier air for a decade.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Horse Show, back to school shouldn’t fall on same days

    The Shelbyville Horse Show is our county’s marquee event, and not just for our equine friends.

    The dinners, the dresses, the hats – we pull out all the stops.

    Opening night brings out the dignitaries and politicians, all eager to shake hands and meet their constituents.

    Families bustle through, eager to see friends and watch the horses. We’re all back from summer vacations, full of tales from the road and fresh tans.
