  • Shelby finishes fourth at East State tourney

    The Shelby County 13-year-old Babe Ruth All-Stars had a solid showing in the 2011 East Kentucky State Tournament.

    They split their first two games over the weekend before blasting Bath County 17-6 Tuesday night at Pulaski County High School in Somerset. They were eliminated later that night, though, with a 6-4 loss to Southeastern - the same team that beat them in their first game.

    "We came up just a little short," said Coach Doug Likes, whose team finished in fourth-place.

  • Farm benefit will raise money for local charities

    Gallrein Farms will have its first Family Fun Fundraiser Saturday, and Randie Gallrein said she’s hoping folks will look past the heat and come out to support several local charities.

    “Everybody just loves the stuff we do in the fall, and families come out and have a great time, so we thought we’d give them another chance to come out and have fun on the farm,” she said. “Hopefully the weather won’t scare them off.”

    This time, though, the Gallrein family decided to give back while having fun on the farm.

  • Draft beer at home

    The craft beer movement continues to sweep across the United States, and appears to finally be taking root in Shelbyville.

    While mass beer sales have declined over the last several years, the craft beer market has continued to grow, taking a larger and larger portion of the overall sales.

    Although still a small part of the market, it seems that people locally are starting to indulge in the quality of craft beers over mass produced products from larger brewers.
