    Russell won in senior individual performance for "Paving the Way for a Gold Standard."

  • This little bird likes the wide-open spaces

    The Horned Lark lives in the open country, never a forest.

    As a matter of fact, a clod or stone is favorite perch, and these birds are rarely seen in a shrub or a tree.

    This bird may be observed the year around, and it tends to abound in flocks in the winter, again always in open country.

    Also drive with caution at night on open country roads whenever snow covers the land, because they will tend to roost at night on the cleared roads.

  • Bowling may not make it in the county next year

    Earlier this week the Kentucky High School Athletic Association approved bowling as a championship sport for the 2011-12, but you may not find teams at Shelby County and Collins next year.

    That’s because there doesn’t appear to be the excitement, or more importantly, the facilities (at least at this point) for either school to have a team.

  • SCHS softball team wins 2nd game

    The Shelby County softball team won its second game of the season Wednesday, beating host Eminence, 7-1.

    The Rockets also lost a district game, falling to Spencer County, 10-1.

    Against Eminence, junior pitcher Danielle DeSilvey gave up just two hits, while striking out 11, and helped her own cause by going 3-for-4 at the plate with one RBI to lead the Rockets (2-7, 1-1) to a 30th District victory over the Warriors (4-1, 0-1). 

  • The (sweet)heart of the SCHS tennis team

    After matches it’s not uncommon for Shelby County girls’ tennis coach Marc Johnson to receive an earful from opponents about senior Micah Broughton, but in a very good way.

    “I always get a lot of compliments from other players and coaches about her,” Johnson said. “She’s just a sweetheart of a girl. She has outstanding sportsmanship, and she plays with her heart.”

    And Broughton, who along with fellow senior Patty Dempsey, is the heart of an otherwise inexperienced Rockets’ team has played well this season.

  • There was no doubting Thomas as Titans finally win a close one

    TAYLORSVILLE – For the last few weeks, the Collins softball team has been the close-but-no-cigar Titans.

    After winning its first three games of the season Collins lost its next five games, including three by one run.

    Wednesday evening the Titans were involved in another nail-biter, but this time when the smoke – or dust in this case – settled, it was visiting Collins that edged 30th District rival Spencer County, 1-0, in eight innings.

  • SCHS boys roll; Collins girls 2nd

    You could call it a punishment.

    You could call it a fashion statement.

    But whatever you call the short shorts sported by the Shelby County boys’ 800-meter relay team, they were definitely quite a sight – and one of the highlights – Tuesday night at Collins' first all-comers track & field meet.

    That relay team was one of seven events winners for the Rockets, who finished with 151 points despite not participating in the final event (the 1,600 relay)
