  • Sloppy Titans (32 turnovers) fall hard

    CRESTWOOD – The Collins girls’ basketball team earned itself some homework Tuesday night.

    Titans Coach Phillip Conder said his team would get some after turning the basketball over 32 times in a 40-21 loss at South Oldham, one of the favorites in the 8th Region.

  • Rockets flame out again early

    Things are starting to look a lot like Bill Murray’s life from the movie Groundhog Day for Shelby County boys’ basketball coach Rick Parsons.

    It’s the same story game-after-game.

    It was another rerun for the Rockets on Tuesday night as they trailed 20-9 after the first quarter on their way to an 80-61 loss at Western Hills.

    “Same old song and dance; we can’t start,” first-year Shelby County Coach Rick Parsons said. “Once we get started we’re alright.”

    Susan Howell is up well before the sun on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, usually around 4:30.

    She has some coffee, watches the news on television, then hits the swimming pool.

    But she isn’t the only one. Howell is one of 13 members of the Clear Creek Masters Swim Team, which practices at 5:30 those mornings, as well as at 8 a.m. Sundays, at Clear Creek’s Family Activity Center.

  • Legislative session: Smoking ban, immigration are hot topics

    As the 2011 legislation session gets under way in Frankfort, many predicted a slow session without many results because of the upcoming governor’s race, which has Senate President David Williams seeking the Republican nomination.

    But the session has started off fast, with several bills being pushed to the Senate floor in the first week and the discussion of a statewide smoking ban.

    "I know we've discussed it before, but I don't ever recall voting on it [a statewide ban] before," Rep. Brad Montell (R-Shelbyville) said.

  • As gas prices surge, Thorntons goes ‘flex’

    Gasoline prices continue to be on the rise, with some predicting per-gallon costs could reach $4 by summer, and Thorntons, the chain of gasoline/convenience stores, is taking a step that could reduce some customers’ reliance on fossil fuel – and help clean the air a bit, too.
    Thorntons officials announced this week that it is rolling out E85, the Ethanol-based alternative fuel referred to by some as “flex fuel” that can be used in many new vehicles.

  • A new Way with animals

    In a small room in a familiar building on U.S. 60, a young black cat named Buster is not feeling well.
    He lies on an examining table at the Kresin Veterinary Clinic as the doctor takes his vitals, examines his eyes and consoles his concerned owner about the health of this recently adopted, 4-month-old feline.
    Only this wasn’t Dr. Jon Kresin doing the doctoring, as he had so many thousands of animals in that same room for the past half-century. This doctor is familiar, too.
