  • Rockets rally past Taylor

    Second-half comebacks are becoming second nature to Shelby County this season.

    With 24 minutes left in regulation, the Rockets (7-4) rallied from down 21-10 in the third quarter, outscoring host Taylor County 28-14 over the final two quarters of play and advancing to the second round of the KHSAA 4A State Playoffs on Friday with a 38-28 win.

  • Collins D is key against Colts

    Another strong defensive performance from Collins combined with a rapid-fire offensive attack left West Jessamine searching for answers in the Titans’ 34-13 home playoff win over the Colts on Friday night.

    West quarterback Jacob Humes was picked off three times in the loss, and while the Colts were able to rack up 306 yards of total offense, 70 of those came from a single second quarter carry by running back Jamesy Swentzel.

  • Shelby boys take the lead for Rocket swimming

    A strong returning group of boys and a growing class of girls should provide Shelby County with high expectations heading into the swim season.

    Led by the duo of senior Logan Kessinger and junior Sean Gilpatrick, the Shelby swim team made up of 14 athletes will look to make a splash in team competition this season.

    Kessinger and Gilpatrick gave the Rockets its presence at the KHSAA State Swim Meet last season, and will be looking to build on that outing this year, according to head coach Tom Coons.

  • Titan swimming sets eyes on state meet bid

    Collins swimming returns several athletes from both its boys and girls teams this season, and will look to use its depth to make a run to the KHSAA State Swim Meet later this winter.

    The Titans boast 35 swimmers from both sets of teams, including having its entire boys team return from last year.

  • SHELBYVILLE CITY COUNCIL - Water and sewer charges revised

    On Thursday, Shelbyville City Council members approved a revised schedule of charges for the use of the consolidated municipal waterworks and sewer system of the Shelbyville Water and Sewer Commission.

    Tom Doyle, manager of the Shelbyville Municipal Water and Sewer Commission, said the rate adjustment is 7.5 percent for water only and would help pay the debt service on a new loan.

  • Pipeline construction to begin soon

    Friday’s wet, overcast weather was appropriate for a groundbreaking ceremony for a new pipeline to be built for Shelby County.

    Officials with both Shelby and Jefferson counties called it a “long term water solution” for the county.

    “It’s a true testament to what you can do when you’re looking out for the future of the customers and the city and you develop a solution that benefits everybody,” said Spencer Bruce, president and CEO of the Louisville Water Company.

  • A Wakefield Christmas

     With the spooky décor just getting packed away it may seem a little premature to dust off the boxes of Christmas decorations, but the folks at Wakefield-Scearce Galleries have actually been hard at work preparing for the winter holiday season for quite some time now.

    Lisa Curry, Christmas coordinator and floral designer, said they have been working on this year’s decorations since this time last year in preparation for their annual Christmas Open House, which kicks off Wednesday at the gallery at 525 Washington Street in Shelbyville.

  • Company celebrating 50 years

    A Shelbyville company that can trace its roots back to the early days of the nation will Tuesday celebrate 50 years at its local location.
