  • Dead-animal issue laid to rest

    No one at Shelby County Fiscal Court's meeting Tuesday seemed unhappy that the county will not be getting into the dead animal hauling business.

    Magistrates unanimously approved a contract with Dars, Inc. a company from Winchester, Ky., that has agreed to haul off the county's roughly 2,000 dead livestock per year to be rendered into fertilizer by a company in Greensburg, Ind.

  • Rockets drop Waggener, Webster

    The SCHS baseball team squeezed two games in Wednesday after a couple of rainouts earlier this week.

    The Rockets whipped visiting Webster County, 9-6, then a few hours later downed Waggener, 12-5.

    “The good thing was we got a couple of wins and got to pitch a lot of guys,” SCHS Coach Bart Roettger said. “We threw seven guys in the two games, and it was nice to see them get some work and look good.”

  • Rockets split Saturday games

    Saturday morning was cold, but the Rockets’ bats heated up quickly. Shelby County's baseball team put nine runs up in the bottom of the third to whip Fairless, Ohio, 11-1, in five innings.

    That afternoon, however, wasn’t as kind to the Rockets (3-2). Shelby got up 1-0 on No. 5-ranked Tates Creek, but the Commodores (2-0) rallied with an eight-run fourth inning for the victory.

  • Rockets focused on state

    Distance and middle distance long have been the Rockets' calling cards in track and field.

    But this year, boys’ Coach George Cottrell is excited to have some strong sprinters to go with his distance runners.

    “I’m really, really optimistic,” he said. “There’s a great deal of competition on the team. Our distance and middle-distance guys are very strong, but this year I think there’s more potential with our sprinters.”

  • Community leaders wish for a new conference center

    When a group of community leaders went to a planning retreat at Cedarmore Conference Center a couple weeks ago, the top item on their common wish list was for a new conference center in the county.

    "Right now we don't have a specific conference center," Shelbyville Mayor Tom Hardesty said. "There's no real center for the general use of the public to host conferences, workshops, etc. I think it'd just be another good drawing card for business and industry if we did have one. The community would benefit from that."

  • Shelby's crime rate declines

    The jail is full, sirens can be heard screaming day and night, sensational crimes have made headlines, and, yet, law enforcement officials report crime is down.

    Despite two murders in 2008 - and another this year - statistics compiled by the Shelby County Sheriff's office and Shelbyville Police Department show crime has diminished significantly since 2007.

    Actually, the fact that the jails are full is a good thing because it contributes to the decreased crime rate, Shelby County Sheriff Mike Armstrong said.
