  • Once a showcase for movies, now a scrap heap for all

    When I heard they were tearing down Showcase Cinemas, the old complex on Bardstown Road in Louisville, I shook my head with a sadness that usually is reserved for when a church or a school or something ancient and irreplaceable was being razed rather than just an outdated theater that hadn’t been open for years.

    But in its own relatively less relevant way, the Showcase was, well, a showcase, even before it exactly bore that name.

  • EARLIER: Volleyball: Seniors play valuable roles

    Last year Akia Jones, Leanna Armstrong, Heather Luce and Kassie Bruner helped Shelby County High School reach the Eighth Region Volleyball Tournament semifinals.

    Those four seniors were back in the Eighth Region tourney, which began Tuesday night at Oldham County, but not all together.

    This season they were all integral parts of their teams’ successes: Jones as an outside hitter for the Rockets, while the other three were valuable parts of Collins’ first team.

  • Collins open 8th Region tourney against South Oldham

  • We congratulate: Shotts’ gift and its potential legacy

     Shelby Trails is on a happy trail to opening. The Shelby County Parks Board officially dedicated its new park on Sunday afternoon at a ceremony that included appropriately included a horseback ride.

    Roger and Diane Shott, those wonderful people who donated the 400-plus acres of rolling farmland to the public good, were there in Todds Point to hear praises and receive plaques.

  • Zoning request could test new standards

    Corridor changes have been a hot topic for Shelbyville and Shelby County during the past several months. The idea has been to clean up the main entrances and passageways throughout the city and county.

    Nothing has been changed since Shelbyville, Shelby County and the Triple S Planning Commission have enacted the new building exterior quality standards, until now.

    Stowaway, Inc. has submitted an amended plat for its facility on 7 Mile Pike, just off of Mount Eden Road. The plat will be up for a vote in Tuesday's regular Triple S meeting.

  • What we think: At least one race is way too quiet

    There remain two weeks in the campaign season, but we have been wonderfully and pleasantly pleased this fall that the candidates running for office in Shelby County have stuck to their guns on issues and kept down the flapping of their gums on each other.

  • Titans will try to tame the Tigers

    Don’t be fooled by the record of the Fern Creek football team.

    The Tigers (3-4) are likely the most talented squad Collins will face this season, when the two teams meet at 7:30 tonight at Titans Stadium.

  • Cross country: Webb finishes third for Rockets
