  • WICHE: How to renovate a strawberry patch

    The strawberry was first cultivated in the 14th Century after a French spy collected a berry from Chile and presented it to France’s King Charles V, who than planted in the Louvre’s Royal Garden.

    By the 17th century this Chilean strawberry was crossed with some found in the Virginia colonies, which gave way to the large-fruiting varieties we enjoy today.

    But don’t be fooled large does not always mean flavorful!

    Jubilee on Saturday will close Main Street

    The Shelbyville Horse Show Jubilee this weekend, which will include a car cruise and concert downtown, will require Main Street to be closed for several hours on Saturday.

  • Post 37 is hurt but it’s not dead

    For the American Legion Shelbyville Post 37 baseball team, it has been a summer that could turn a coach’s hair white.

    Just ask Jim Wiley.

    His team won its first five games, lost its next six as injuries and illness hampered the team and bounced back to win three in a row later, only to drop a doubleheader to end the regular season and lose its district tournament opener to Oldham County.

    But with its collective back against the wall, Post 37 won three lose-an-your-season-is-over games in a row before falling in the district final.

  • Sharks find hot water means some cool times

  • Deep, talented Titans should be way above par

    It’s been a very successful summer for members of the Collins boys’ golf team.

    Now Coach Mike Griffin is hoping the Titans can keep that momentum going heading into the fall season, which begins Monday in the Flyer Classic.

    “I hope it carries over,” he said.

    One thing that will definitely carry over from last year to this year is almost all of last year’s team. The Titans have 10 players on this year’s squad, and nine of those are back from last season.
