  • SCHS boys’ soccer team wins on Orange’s goal

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team got some last minute heroics to win its second consecutive match – Stuart Orange’s goal with just less than 15 seconds remaining gave the Rockets a 3-2 victory over host Carroll County on Tuesday night.

    “It was one of those games where you walk away with the win, but leave feeling as if the other team deserves a victory just as much as you do,” Shelby County Coach Tony Wood said.

    The Rockets built a 2-0 lead in the first half.

  • Rockets ready to blast off

    Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley had an electronic clock installed last spring in his team’s locker room.

    “When we put it in, it said we had a hundred and six days until LaRue County,” Shipley said Wednesday night. “I looked at it today, and there were just two days and two hours and something until kickoff. I remember when we put it up – it was May – I said, we have a long time to go.”

    The wait is over.

  • Mayton makes his shots to lead Titans

    Collins senior Turner Mayton has had some memorable rounds – and some rounds he would like to forget – at Weissinger Hills Golf Course.

    It’s the course where he played his first varsity match and earned his first varsity letter, but it’s also one that has caused him some problems, especially the early holes.

    “It has been both good and bad, but today [Tuesday] was a good way to go out,” Mayton said.

  • Big clash for the Titans

    Some 15 years ago, when Jerry Lucas was a young head coach at Western Hills, Boyle County, a straight shot down U.S. 137 for him then, was barely a blip on the state’s high school football radar. 

    Now the Rebels are one of the premier programs in the state.

  • UNDERWOOD: How do you sustain in business and in life?

    Sustainability is a fairly new concept in business and life. Until recently, most of us assumed that life and business would always proceed as usual. Concerns about the future of our country and the world’s economic condition, the lack of predictability in the stock market, making a decent wage, retirement, and the future of our environmental sustainability were subjects for science fiction books.

  • EARLIER: Long-time Shelby County drug store sold to CVS

    On Sept. 21 a 108-year-old institution will open its doors for business – but it won’t be the same.

    CVS Pharmacy will take over the venerable Smith-McKenney drug store in Shelbyville’s Village Plaza Shopping Center, and the store’s Simpsonville location will close its doors, ending a business tradition that began in downtown Shelbyville before there were cars on the streets.
