West Berlin was separated by 100 miles from the eastern border of West Germany and only accessible by land by narrow rail and highway corridors. It consisted of the American, British, and French occupation sectors established in 1945. It was, however, a de facto part of West Germany.

    Despite a valiant second half comeback effort, Shelby County boys’ basketball could not find a way to put away district foe Anderson County Friday.

    After scoring no points in the first quarter and six points as a team in the second frame, the Rockets (2-12) came out of the halftime break trailing 22-6 but with a more up-tempo style of offense, and it paid dividends as SCHS gave the visiting Bearcats (5-8) all it could handle.
