  • VAN STOCKUM: 30 Years in the Marines: The Rest of the Story (1942-1967), Part 11: Home from the war in the Pacific

    On April 1, 1945, while flying home, having competed a combat tour in the Pacific of nearly 26 months, I heard on the plane’s radio news of the assault on Okinawa that day.

    This was the beginning of another struggle with a skilled and determined enemy, who augmented his defenses this time with kamikaze pilots who deliberately crashed their bomb-laden planes on naval ships.

    On land and sea a terrible toll was exacted, foretelling a bloody struggle for the home islands of Japan, planned for later that year.

  • Fun on the farm

    The leaves on some trees were just beginning to turn subtle shades of crimson and yellow on Saturday, creating a perfect backdrop for a crisp fall day of lazy family fun for the entire community.

    The Good Neighbors Farm Tour was in its 5th year this past weekend and those who participated in the self-guided tour of nine local farms said they couldn’t remember a more enjoyable tour. 

  • Reprising a family role in history

    Almost like a family tradition, Mike Tracy will do his part to clean up downtown Shelbyville this weekend.

    The owner of Tracy’s Home Furnishings will don police attire to patrol downtown for the re-enactment of the shooting of Brig. Gen. Henry Denhardt, which took place 80 years ago and thrust Shelbyville into the national spotlight.

  • Rockets rally for comeback win

    While Friday’s game was not Super Bowl LI, Shelby County’s comeback win over Bullitt East was certainly Patriot-like.

    Trailing by a 21-6 margin coming out of halftime, the Rockets (4-1) scored 16 unanswered points following the break, defeating a visiting Chargers (1-3) team and picking up its fourth win of the year in the process.

    SCHS’ comeback was complete when, with 6:12 left in regulation, sophomore kicker Christian Gayhart nailed a 44-yard field goal attempt with plenty of room to spare.

  • Collins falls to visiting Boyle County

    Although it jumped out to an early lead, Collins proved to be no match for 3A perennial power Boyle County on Friday night, as the Rebels rolled to a 45-17 win.

    Boyle (4-1) limited Collins (3-2) to 264 yards of total offense, along with a season-low 17 points and handed the Titans its second loss of the season.

  • Titans rout Shelby County

    Everything went Collins’ way in Monday’s matchup between the Titans and crosstown rival Shelby County.

    The Titans used three goals from junior forward Braelyn Gantt and two scores each from Lindsay Creque and Isabella Trevino to hand Shelby (1-9) the 10-0 loss and earn Collins (6-2-1) its first district win of the season.

  • Shelby defeats Collins at Wessinger

    Shelby County girls’ golf picked up a home victory over rival Collins Thursday, defeating the Titans 168-206 at Weissinger Hills Golf Course.

    The Rockets were led on the scorecard by freshman Grace Clark, who carded a match-low score of 39 in the victory.

  • Collins whips Manual Thursday

    As the boys’ golf season comes to a close, it appears that Collins seems to be peaking at the right time.

    The Titans earned a big win over a visiting Manual team on Thursday night, in a 40-stroke victory over the Crimsons.

    Five different Collins’ golfers carded scores of 47 or lower as the home team defeated Manual by a 163-203 margin at Shelbyville Country Club.

  • SHELBYVILLE CITY COUNCIL - Electric and natural gas franchises

    Up for discussion will be an ordinance creating and establishing a bid for a non-exclusive electric franchise and a non-exclusive natural gas franchise when the Shelbyville City Council convenes Thursday for its regularly scheduled meeting at 6:30 p.m. at city hall, 315 Washington Street.

    The new ordinance would allow for the placement of facilities for the transmission, distribution and sale of electrical energy within the public right-of-way of the city of Shelbyville for a 10-year duration and for natural gas for a 20-year duration.
