  • This week we get a glimpse into the past and the future

    We can pull out a familiar old term from the unabridged dictionary of our minds this week and reintroduce it to our daily vernacular after an, oh, 35-year absence.

    This etymological re-entry will become official Friday night at Collins High School Stadium, where cross-town rival – yes, that’s the word – Shelby County comes a-calling, as Cawood used to say.

    Rivalry.

  • Shelby County gets 1st win

     

     

     

    Finally!

    The Shelby County High School football team won its first game of the season Friday night, beating host Southern 36-32.

    “It’s been a long time coming,” said senior Quinten Cottrell, who rushed for 128 yards and three touchdowns for the Rockets.

    Sophomore quarterback Zach Shipley added a touchdown pass and a TD run for Shelby County (1-8), which built a 29-12 halftime lead but had to hold on late to preserve its first victory of 2010.

  • The greatest athlete of a lifetime leaves a great legacy

    I have an elderly aunt who not long ago confided something very important to me.

    “I like what you write,” she said, “except I don’t care much about sports.”

    Well, Carroll, I have to apologize, but sometimes my roots in the dirt of diamonds, the creaky basketball courts and the trees, sand and water of golf courses sometimes fight their way past the topsoil of today’s world and push fresh shoots that must be nourished with a few organic sentences from the compost pile within me.

  • What we think: Candidates deserve your vote Tuesday

    We have but days remaining until Election Day, and we’re sure the candidates will be almost as glad as we are when the votes are counted.

    We have to say almost because those who fail to capture the most votes certainly won’t be pleased that the race is finished.

    But we do believe they would admit they need a few moments to sit back and relax, that they are as tired as they can be.

  • Hello, Shelby County, it's nice to meet you

    Hello, Shelby County, it’s nice to meet you.

    Sorry it has taken me so long to introduce myself, but you know how it is when you start a new job. It takes a little while to get adjusted to things. You spend most of your time early on just trying to keep your head above water.

    I’ve been around for about three weeks, so I’ve had a chance to meet some of you, but obviously not all of you, so let this be my formal introduction to you all.

  • Election 2010: Paul buses in to deliver his message

    Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Rand Paul made a quick stop Monday in Shelbyville at WJ Andriot’s on Main Street during his bus tour across the commonwealth.

    Paul was the big draw, but he brought along U.S. Rep. (R-Bowling Green) Brett Guthrie and host of state and local leaders and politicians.

    Paul took time to address the small after-lunch crowd of about 30 or 40 residents, stressing his vision as the key to the election and the country.
