  • We congratulate: Our champions who set the pace

    One of the things we like most to do is to congratulate our young people on their success stories, and this is the time of year when that happens most frequently – with graduation, scholarships and the never-ending lists on Awards Night at our high schools.

    But on Friday night, in a stadium in Louisville, three Shelby Countians stepped forward and established themselves at the best at what they do against their peers from around the state.

  • Turnout better than expected in 2012 Primary in Shelby County

    Voter turnout, or the lack of it, was a key issue in Kentucky’s Primary Election, but in Shelby County, the initial gloomy predications of 10 to 12 percent turned out to be a rosier 19 percent.

    “I have heard everything from the turnout is heavier than expected to the other extreme,” Shelby County Republican Chair Jennifer Decker said. “I heard that turnout was estimated to be around thirty-five percent in Simpsonville to a report that they only had a hundred or so people at the West Middle precinct by noon.”

  • Adkins, Massie dominate primary

    The 4th District congressional races in Shelby County closely resembled the statewide results in the 2012 Primary Election.

    Republican voters in Shelby County widely preferred Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie, who garnered 50 percent of the vote in the county and approximately 46 percent statewide.

  • SCHS boys 13th, Collins girls 11th

    Led by 300-meter hurdle champ Zach Shipley’s victory, the Shelby County boys finished tied for 13th-place at the Class AA Track & Field State Championships last Friday at the University of Louisville.

    Meanwhile thanks to victories by the Karas sisters, senior Caterina and seventh-grader Gabby, Collins’ girls finished in 11th place overall with 20 points (Western Hills edged Central 65-61 for the team title).

  • Powell’s grand slam propels SCHS softball

    Hayley Powell’s grand slam helped the Shelby County softball team end its regular season on a high note.

    The Rockets (8-24), who lost, 11-0, at Bullitt East in six innings Thursday, bounced back to beat host Montgomery County, 6-3, Friday night, thanks in large part to Powell’s 2-out, fifth-inning slam in their regular-season finale. 

  • Shelby boasts 3 state track champs

    LOUISVILLE – Shelby County High School junior Zach Shipley won his first state championship, and Collins sisters Caterina and Gabby Karas added to their total Friday night at the Class AA State Track & Field Championships.

    Shipley held off several challengers to win the boys’ 300-meter hurdles at the University of Louisville’s Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park, while senior Caterina Karas captured the 800 and her seventh-grade sister, Gabby, took home the title in the 1,600.

  • Victory suits Rockets to a Tee

    Tuesday night was Tee time.

    Shelby County senior catcher Tee Goble went 2-for-6 with three RBIs – the final two coming on a double in the top of the 11th inning that gave the fourth-seeded Rockets a 10-8 upset of  top-seeded Collins in the 30th District Tournament baseball semifinals at Collins.

    “This feels good, this feels real good,” Goble said soaking in the significance of the moment after the game. “Everybody expected us to lose.”

  • District softball: Collins falls to Anderson in 10 innings

    TAYLORSVILLE – In the end, an old enemy showed up at Collins' gate Tuesday night.

    Anderson County took advantage of numerous Collins defensive miscues to defeat the Titans, 7-4, in a 10-inning, semifinal thriller at the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County High School.

    An unofficial count by The Anderson Newscredited Collins with 10 errors leading to six unearned runs. Officially, Collins Coach Jim Axline said he knew his team had far too many to beat an Anderson team that was playing well heading into the post-season.

  • MY WORD: Remembering true spirit of Memorial Day
