  • Rockets nipped by Whitefield, rebound to pound Bethlehem

    The Shelby County baseball team lost a close game Tuesday night, then turned a close game into a blowout on Wednesday night.

    The Rockets fell, 4-2, to Whitefield Academy on Tuesday before bombing Bethlehem, 10-3, the next night.

    The Rockets plated two runs in the first two innings, but that would be all the offense they could muster against the visiting Wildcats (2-0) and starter Cameron Smith. 

  • Rockets’ boys win; Titans’ girls finish 4th

    The Shelby County boys’ track & field team made an early-season statement Tuesday evening.

    The Rockets won their own all-comers meet, which was cut short because of lightning in the area. They scored 74 points to beat Class 3-A Trinity and Bardstown, which finished third in Class A last year, by 14 points.

    The Shelby County girls’ team, meanwhile, placed seventh.

    “It was very exciting to get the first win on our home field,” said senior center fielder Kristina Gramig, who scored the game-winning run.

    Shelby County scored in the first inning before scoring four times in the sixth against the Raiders, who tallied two runs in the seventh.

  • Shelby man at home on the political trail

    While he was weaving through Washington D.C.'s political circles, Michael Biagi said he always knew he wanted to come back to Kentucky.

    Growing up in Shelbyville, he knew the commonwealth would some day be his long-term home.

    Now, returning from political stomping grounds, Biagi has found a spot as the Louisville-area field representative for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky).

    He didn't know it then as a young child, but his future was right out there in front of him.

    Actually, it was on the same block.

  • Humane Society puts on the dog

    The Shelby County Humane Society is normally more black Lab than black tie, but that will change Saturday night with Runway & Rescue.

    All proceeds from the night, which still has seats available for $100 apiece, will benefit the Shelby County Humane Society.

    Where would you expect to see a crowd of 1,400, a plane trailing a pennant overhead, free food of all kinds, clowns and people tapping their feet to the strains of Bluegrass music?

    No, it wasn’t a carnival or even a festival, it was opening day at Shelbyville’s new Kroger store.

    “We had all these activities planned because we knew it would be big, but we never expected a crowd like this,” store manager Jeff Disponette said. “We’re tickled to death!”
