  • Titans toss away their shot at Oldham

    The Collins boys’ basketball team couldn’t overcome some early carelessness at Oldham County on Saturday night.

    The Titans turned the ball over at key moments in the first half, before rallying in the fourth quarter, but fell short in the end, 60-56, in an 8th Region battle.

  • No offense, Rockets played well

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team ran its offense well Monday night, just not well enough.

    The Rockets fell to 8th Region rival Gallatin County, 68-23, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    The Wildcats (10-7) led, 23-2, at the end of the first quarter and 41-9 at intermission against Shelby County (0-15) in its penultimate home game of the season.

  • Rockets get close but can’t finish

    The Shelby County boys’ basketball team was seconds away from its second victory of the season Saturday night.

    However the Rockets were left to ask “What if?” after North Laurel beat them, 51-49, in the Al Prewitt Classic at Henry Clay.

    “It was one of those, ‘If [we do this],’ ‘If [we don’t do that],’ games,” Shelby County Coach Rick Parsons said. “It makes ‘if’ the longest word in the dictionary.”

  • Late-game heroics turn back Colonels

    Coming off a pair of close loses to quality teams, the Collins girls’ basketball team was on the ropes again Saturday night.

    But this time the Titans bounced back.

  • EARLIER: Group to fight city on sidewalk law

    Several property owners and city residents will test a Shelbyville city ordinance that requires landowners to repair sidewalks in what ultimately could be a landmark case.

    No ordinance similar to this one has been tested in court, according to both the Shelbyville City Attorney Frank Chuppe and the three lawyers - Vic Brizendine, Gilmore Dutton and Austin Hays - that have rallied the group.

  • A taste of a different life

    Baghdad and Korea might seem like one in the same as hotspots with tense U.S. relations.

    But Sean Chandler, a Shelby County High School and Centre graduate with a masters from the University of Kentucky, would be quick to tell you that Bagdad (Kentucky) and South Korea have a lot in common, too.

    Chandler is five months into a yearlong stay in South Korea, where he's teaching English in a middle school in Ildong, a small town near Pocheon, north of Seoul and about 20 miles from the Demilitarized Zone and border with North Korea.

  • One awards event where you felt the winners really meant it

    Don’t you get the feeling sometimes that we are a society that honors each other when honor is the element that should be honored?
    Or – and I’ll translate here – don’t you feel that we have so many awards events that they never seem to end, that they go end-to-end like a run of dominoes that never seems to bump into the double blanks?
    You sense that there is an award for everything, and a show for every award.

  • What we think: School board’s menu is fit for our kids

    Through a report last week to the Shelby County School Board, we now understand that our children are eating healthier at school than we might have expected.
    Shelby County Public Schools appear to be ahead of the new federal guidelines that are being handed down – guidelines that we believe are much needed in feeding kids who too often prefer a meal to be a soft drink and some French fries – and we find that to be a delicious concept.

  • We congratulate: Performance of Shelby’s EMA

    The report to Shelby County Fiscal Court last week that Shelby County’s Emergency Management Agency is performing among the best in the state illuminates a very important aspect of our community.
    All of us depend on Director Charlie Frazee, Deputy Director Paul Whitman and all those affiliated with EMA to keep us informed and safe during times of danger and difficulty.
    It’s comforting to understand that we are being cared for by some of the best in Kentucky.
