The Shelbina City Council received an update on the City Improvement Project during Thursday night’s meeting at the Shelbina City Hall.
   City Improvement
   Shelbina City Clerk Tim Lacy reported that the city improvement project is moving along. He said they are hoping to get it wrapped up in early March. Lacy said there are four or five water meters left to work on and six electric meters. He also noted that about four or five gas meters have to be changed out.
   Lacy said they are pretty much working out the technology part of the new system.
   Police Dodge Charger
   They have been looking to sell the Shelbina Police Department’s Dodge Charger, but to this point, only one bid has been received, and it was for $7,600. The council had set a minimum bid of $11,500, so they are probably not going to accept the bid that was received.

Above average temperatures, low humidity, and overall dry conditions have led to much of Northeast Missouri being under a burn ban for the last couple of weeks. Members of the Shelbina Fire Protection District have been busy fighting numerous grass fires in the area during that time. Pictured above are firefighters attempting to get a grass fire under control Thursday, Feb. 16, on the southwest edge of Shelbina.   8704 1708 2/22/2017 hdl

Ebony Teter is overcome with emotion after she found out Wednesday, Feb. 15 that she was awarded a full ride scholarship for four years to attend Columbia College.

It’s a great example of how hard work and determination pays off. South Shelby Senior Ebony Teter found out first hand Wednesday afternoon when she was presented with the news that she had received a full ride scholarship at Columbia College.
   She was the recipient of the Presidential Scholarship that was awarded to her in the amount of $87,744. Teter will play softball while attending Columbia College.
   “I’m excited that I get the experience. Otherwise I would have been attending a community college so I could take advantage of my A+, but now I can experience being a freshman in college,” Teter said.
   She plans on majoring in Public Administration. “This means so much. I have so many siblings, so it was going to be hard to pay, and I knew if I ended up going, it was going to be a struggle,” she explained.

Shelby County R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex said he feels kind of silly for taking the steps he took last week in locking down the school, but Maddex wasn’t taking any chances.
   Around 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 16, Maddex was outside South Shelby High School when he saw man in a black hoodie sitting on the railroad tracks across Highway 36.
   “I thought that was suspicious and then when he started walking toward the school, I decided to radio in and have the building locked down,” Maddex explained.
