  • Rockets drop another close one

    The Shelby County Rockets came up short again, this week against North Oldham in a 79-77 overtime loss at home Friday.

    Boomer Beckley scored 28 points and handed out five assists for the Rockets, but it wasn't enough.

    Shelby led 35-29 at halftime, but North clawed back throughout the third and fourth, and had a chance to win in regulation. But what would've been a game-winner was waived off because it was too late.

    North Oldham then opened the overtime with back-to-back 3-pointers to take a 72-68 lead that the Mustangs would not relinquish.

    "I wanted to kill him," she said.

    She quickly removed the child from the room and then reached for a weapon. "I grabbed the first gun I could find," she said.

  • There’s no time like the first snow time

     So the big topic this weekend at our house was the forecast of snow. Chances are it might have been at yours, too, but our terms of endearment were probably quite different.

    Ours was a sort of breathless anticipation. We checked online to monitor the hour-by-hour updated forecast. We watched the skies and felt the chill.

    We were ready to awaken on Sunday morning and see the white stuff.

    “Does that mean we can go out and build a snowman tomorrow?” my son asked, his eyes bright and shining.
