  • WICHE: Potatoes ready for the garden

    It’s time to start it all over again, thank goodness!

    I had to buy some potatoes from the grocery a few weeks back because we had finally finished all that were stored in the basement. Home-grown potatoes, even the old ones in their slightly shriveled state, are far superior to the kind that come in a plastic bag!

    I am really ready to get my hands in the soil and planting potatoes is just the thing to get the season rolling.

  • Wednesday's First 4

    It's time to dust off the old blog again because - to steal a line from one of my favorite Steve Carell movies - I'm afraid if I don't use it I might lose it. So here's a quick glance at Wednesday.

    1. The big news of the day, and so far the week, is the resignation (wink, wink) of Shelby County boys' basketball coach Rick Parsons.

  • Rockets rally to top Dragons in season-opener

    The Shelby County baseball team did something in its season-opener that it didn’t do all of last year – the Rockets posted a come-from-behind victory.

    Shelby County scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat visiting South Oldham 6-5 Friday.

    “It was a great win, the first come-from-behind win in two years,” Rockets Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger said.

  • Shelby County softball falls in season-opener

    The Shelby County softball team’s season opener had hot start but a cool conclusion Monday as host North Oldham rallied for a 6-5 victory in Goshen.

    The Rockets, who went 5-19 last season, started off well, scoring once in the first inning and twice in the second and third frames to build a 5-2 lead.

    “We couldn’t find a run after that,” said Shelby County Coach Kelly Cable, whose team had all five of its hits in the first 3 1/3 innings. 

  • Rockets’ boys revved for a run at a state title

    New Shelby County track & field coach Nick Edwards has high hopes for his first teams.

    And if a few indoor meets are any indication, Edwards’ optimism – especially for his boys’ squad – is well warranted.

    “I think it looks pretty bright for us this year,” said Edwards, 24, an assistant coach last season who takes over for the retired George Cottrell.

    The Rockets opened their outdoor season Tuesday at their own all-comers meet.
