    Bagdad Ruritans holding dinner

    to try to keep the city’s lights on

     

    The Bagdad Ruritan Club is trying to keep the streetlights burning in the city, but its members are going to need some help.

    Bagdad has for about 50 years had a resident-pay system for its streetlights, and because of non-payment and rising costs, the fund for those lights has dried up.

  • Patterson’s 4 goals fuel Rockets to opening victory

    Alex Patterson helped make sure that the Shelby County girls’ soccer team got off on the right cleat Monday night.

    Patterson, a senior forward, scored four goals – all in the first half - as the Rockets routed

    Carroll County, 9-0, in their season-opener at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    “It feels good. I think it’s good for our team because last year we struggled a lot,” Patterson said.

  • Youth was served as Rockets, minus top 3 players, trim Titans

    Youth was definitely served on the golf course at Weissinger Hills on Monday afternoon.

    That’s where, and when, a very young Shelby County girls’ team, which was playing without its top three players, beat an almost equally as young Collins squad, 230-248, in the Titans’ first varsity match of the season.  

  • Rockets redeem one 2010 loss, narrowly miss on another

    It was a week of redemption for the Shelby County volleyball team.

    The Rockets made good on one chance at atonement but narrowly missed on another.

    Shelby County beat 8th Region rival North Bullitt, 25-22, 25-22, this past Thursday before falling to Oldham County, the No. 15 team in the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association Preseason Top 25 and another region foe, 25-20, 25-16 Monday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium. Both teams beat the Rockets last season.

  • Collins girls' soccer team beats Meade in opener

    The Collins girls’ soccer team won its season-opener Monday night, beating Meade County, 3-0, at Clear Creek Park.

    Junior Shelby Vogel and seniors Hannah Garner and Sarah Robinson tallied goals for the Titans, who went 9-8-2 in their inaugural season.

    Vogel, a midfielder, broke a scoreless tie with a little less than six minutes remaining in the first half when her shot from outside the goal box took a hot hop and bounced over the diving Meade County goalie.

  • SCPS in court on road dispute

  • Welcome back students: A primer to the school year in Shelby County

    As schools open today at 7:30 a.m. for elementary, 8:30 for high schools and 8:40 for middle schools, students, teachers and administrators will see a lot of new faces, some familiar faces in new places and some old places updated with new looks and a lot of new technology.

    So, here are few of the changes, upgrades, updates and policy changes this year for Shelby County Public Schools.

    Which schools have new principals?

  • Shelby County Board of Education: Split-level Southside gets its 1st look

    The Shelby County Board of Education heard its first update on the new Southside Elementary School project during Thursday’s meeting.

    Architects from K. Norman Berry outlined the school’s early footprint but noted that they will be back in the next few weeks with a more detailed development plan.

    Superintendent James Neihof was quick to remind the board that the proposals were just a start. “This is a beginning plan, not a final plan,” he said.
