A large number of donated items were auctioned off during the annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors fundraiser that was held at the Shelbina Christian Church Family Life Center Sunday.

The crowd was large, the food was good and the auction items were in abundance at the annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors Fundraiser. The event, which was held Sunday at the Shelbina Christian Churches Family Life Center, was considered a success.
   After expenses were paid, the event netted right at $17,000. The money is used to help people throughout Shelby County who have suffered a major illness or experienced a catastrophe.
   The Family Life Center quickly filled up around noon as local churches dismissed. People milled around placing bids for the silent auction and going through the quickly moving food line.

Shelbina City Marshal Jerry Fenton and City Attorney John Wilcox talked to the Mayor and Council about a Shelbina resident that is housing numerous Alligators, poisonous snakes a 15 foot python and monitor lizards during Tuesday night’s regular council meeting.
   Housing Reptiles
   Fenton said that Shelbina native Brandon Boyles, who he said lives with his grandmother just across the street south from Shelbina Elementary, has most of the above stated reptiles stored in a brown shed behind the house.
   When Fenton visited the home last week, he said there were actually poisonous snakes in butter dishes underneath the couch in the actual house.
   Wilcox said he isn’t sure what the City can do about it as far as an ordinance goes. He said they could enact an ordinance but Boyles would most likely be grandfathered in.
   Wilcox said Boyles has a Western Diamondback snake, a Krait snake from India, which Wilcox described as ultra-poisonous and several lizards from outside the United States. Wilcox said he is supposed to register each one with the county, which he didn’t do. He said the county could prosecute him for each one, which would be a C misdemeanor.
   Fenton said that Shelby County Conservation Agent Kevin Lockard was with him when he went to the home. Lockard took pictures of everything.
