  • Feed store relocates

    For the second time in two years, a longtime equine feed store is undergoing a major change in moving to a new location.

    Excel Equine will move into its new location Monday, leaving its home of 40 plus years on Kentucky Street to 7th Street.

    Although the store will relocate, going to the intersection of 7th Street and Old Eminence Pike, right across from the Shelby County Detention Center, its products and services will stay the same, said store employee Megan Klein.

  • Family awarded $2m in suit from death of toddler

    In a strange twist, a Shelby County family won an uncontested lawsuit they filed after their toddler was struck by a car in a parking lot in their apartment complex when the accused party didn’t answer the summons.

    Even more unusual, the management company that oversees Lynne Acres, where the couple lived, said they didn’t even know about the suit.

  • Early pressure stifles Shelby in opener

    An early deficit and a smothering full-court press left a new Shelby County boys’ basketball team searching for answers on Tuesday night, as the Rockets fell 65-45 at Mercer County in its season-opener.

    SCHS (0-1) came into the game with just two established starters and experienced some early season jitters with three new players seeing starting minutes for the Rockets.

  • Collins sweeps home meet

    Both Collins and Shelby County swim teams continued strong starts to the season on Wednesday night, as the squads turned in some top finishes in the second meet of the early season.

    The Titans were particularly sharp, finishing in first-place both in the boys and girls team competitions.

    In the girls’ standings, athletes Sam Monarch, Abby Jacobs and Mary Grace Vest led Collins en route to its team victory with 305 points, ending 24 ahead of second-place Oldham County.

  • Shelby County to host Legends Classic

    To kick off the regular season slate of games this weekend, Shelby County High School will host the Shelby County Rockets Legends Classic Saturday, with each of the boys and girls teams competing at the event.

  • Collins, Shelby will have to grow with season

    With the football season now behind us, its time to get back to the sport the Bluegrass State is known for: Basketball.

    The hoops team coming in that will have the highest expectations is easily Collins girls’ basketball. Sean Pigman has his full compliment of players back sans one graduated senior in Hannah Renfro, and should easily be one of the frontrunners in contention for a chance at the 30th District title behind outstanding point guard Olivia Federle, who is still only a sophomore.

  • Churches open holiday activities

     “I love Christmas. I am mesmerized by Christmas.  But sometimes we forget what Christmas is all about.” said Maurice Hollingsworth, pastor at Shelbyville First Baptist Church.  “It’s more than trees and packages and lots of food, ultimately Christmas is all about the miracle of Christ.”

    To keep the reason for the season at the focus of the community, several churches in Shelby County have big plans this month starting with two events tomorrow.

  • Tis season of giving back

      Between the stress of decorating, fighting for the hot toys, waiting in long lines for Santa and mad rushes to the mall for last minute gifts it’s easy to get lost in the commercialization of the season.

    But December should be reserved as the season of giving back and thinking of others.

    Shelby County prides itself on being a tight community. So for the next 24 days leading up to Christmas – in the midst of being shoved at the store and fighting for a parking spot – take some time each day to think of others.
