   S. Shelby FFA Reporter
   Shelby County residents and many others look forward to the spectacular event that is Farmers Day. Farmers Day is a yearly event that in itself means to represent and celebrate all of our local farmers. This year the 2016 - 2017 Farmer Of The Year Award went to: Ensor Farms and Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Timbrook, who we congratulate for that honor. For several years, the South Shelby FFA along with South Shelby FCCLA and several other local businesses and organizations have worked together to make Farmer’s Day a successful event.
   First thing in the morning, as all the floats got ready for the parade procession to begin, FFA members realized the ground was a bit muddy, but as we know the show must go on. As 11:00 a.m. rolled around, out in the distance everyone was able to see the beginning of the parade. Not only were there amazing floats, but there were trophies to award to them.

The Shelbina City Council took care of several issues during Tuesday evening regular council meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   Waste Water Plant
   Service Agreement
   Assistant Superintendent Rob Trivette had the mayor sign off on the engineering service agreement which is part of the waste water bypass plan, which will improve the head works and ultimately hopefully eliminate outfall #2. He pointed out that they were signing off on an agreement to begin the design phase of the project.
   Trivette said this is something that has been discussed for years. The council approved to go ahead with the design part of the project. Trivette said he plans to talk to other operators to see what has worked best for them.
   Asst. Superintendent
   Trivette reported that on the copper translator study, the City met with DNR and made a presentation to DNR. They are waiting to hear results, he said. Mayor Al Dimmitt asked if they still copper sulfate the lake. Trivette explained that they put about 50 grass carp in the lake and 50 more the second year. He said since they started that about 10 years ago, they haven’t treated the lake but probably around six times. He said he tests the lake every quarter.
