  • SCHS volleyball team overpowers Franklin County

    The Shelby County volleyball team downed Franklin County, 25-21, 25-17, on Tuesday night at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    The Rockets were led by sophomore middle blocker Kyndle Pace, who had eight kills, four blocks and two aces; junior middle blocker Shelby Tooke, who finished with 4 kills, 3 blocks; and junior outside hitter Ariana Jones contributed 3 kills, 3 aces, 9 digs. 

    Shelby County (6-6 heading into Thursday night’s match at Anderson County) plays at Collins at 6:30 p.m. Monday.

  • Junior Jones matures into Rockets’ leader

    Shelby County junior outside hitter Ariana (“Air-y” for short) Jones has become the go-to player for the Rockets’ volleyball team (6-6 heading into Thursday night’s match at Anderson County) this season.

    “Ari is my exceptional player,” Shelby County Coach Felicia Pace said. “She’s one the team relies on to be their big gun…just her athleticism pulls the kids together. It makes them aspire to do the things she does.”

  • Big cross-country tests this weekend

    The Collins and Shelby County cross-country teams will face some of the best competition this state, and surrounding states, have to offer Saturday.

    The boys’ teams from both schools are slated to compete in the Trinity Invitational, while the girls’ squads will run in the Valkyrie Invitational. Both meets, which usually draw the best teams in Kentucky as well as some of the top squads from Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee, are held together at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park.

  • Oakey’s shot more than OK

    Goals have been hard to come by so far this season for the Collins boys’ soccer team, so the Titans have had learn to savor each one.

    With that in mind, Jack Oakey’s first-half goal against South Oldham on Tuesday night at Clear Creek Park was especially sweet.

  • 1 team will leave game with 1 W

    Something’s got to give tonight in New Castle.

    That’s when, and where, winless Shelby County plays winless Henry County at 7:30 p.m.

    “They’re kind of like us; they’re struggling a little bit,” Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley said.

    The two teams do seem to have a couple of things in common, in addition to their “0” in the W column.

  • School helps remove gluten to the maximum

    Middle school is a crazy time.

    It's all about doing the right thing with the right people and fitting in.

    And that's all Melissa Baralt wanted for her daughter Kelly, a sixth-grader at West Middle.

    For years Melissa Baralt had been trying to get the school system to offer some gluten-free alternatives to work with her daughter's Celiac disease.

  • Ag-to-industrial plan to get hearing

    The Triple S Planning Commission will have a public hearing Tuesday on a zoning request from the Shelbyville City Council, the third consecutive meeting that the commission has faced a zone change request.

    The commission will hear feedback for the 73-acre farm on the southeast corner of Harrington Mill Road and Freedom’s Way during its regular meeting at 6:30 p.m. at the Stratton Center.

  • Shelby County’s corn harvest isn’t so sweet this fall

    As the harvest season moves into full swing across the commonwealth, it looks like farmers survived another difficult growing season – emphasis on “survived.”

    After a spring that saw rainfall reach record levels, farmers had to fight through another dry summer.

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture is predicting Kentucky's corn and soybean crops to exceed last year's totals, but that optimistic outlook isn't carrying over to Shelby County's farmers.

  • Southside forum focuses on road, redistricting

    Fewer than a dozen people turned out Tuesday for the first public workshop on for the new Southside Elementary project.

    The workshop, held in Southside's current gym, was designed to get information from the public on the design, layout and features of the new building, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014.

    However, only three people spoke, and the crowd mostly was filled with administration and staff.
