  • Bullitt East hands Rockets first loss

    The SCHS boys’ basketball team let one slip away Saturday at Bullitt East.

    With the Rockets leading, 70-67, and just seconds to play, an ill-advised, 3-point shot by Cache Tomlinson gave Bullitt East the small window it needed.

    Hayden Sweat drilled a 3-pointer with just 2 seconds left to force overtime, and the Chargers (4-1) rode that momentum to a 85-79 victory over the Rockets (3-1).

  • Young Lady Bulldogs looking to build

    After suiting up for the Cornerstone Christian Academy girls’ basketball team for four years -- then as Tres bien Simpson -- as a vital piece of one of the schools’ most successful runs, it was time to return.

    Now Tres bien Gambino is back and is hoping to bring some of that success with her. In her four years on the varsity squad, Gambino won two titles and played in three KCAA state tournaments.

  • Bulldogs come up short

    The Cornerstone Christian Academy boys’ basketball team ran out of gas in Saturday’s 53-43 home loss to Christian Academy-Lawrenceburg.

    The Bulldogs stayed close throughout the three quarters before Lawrenceburg pulled away in the fourth.

    “We just fell short late in the game,” Cornerstone Coach Darrick Briscoe said. “They hit some big shots down the stretch, and we got away from our game.”

  • Shelby man shares his personal journey in new book

    Greg Jacobs said he had no intention of writing a book.

    But when he sat down at his computer this summer, his story poured out in 17 days.

    When Jacobs was finished, he had what he called a Christian-living book about the "knocks and bruises" he has experienced. He called it To be Continued...An Ordinary Man on an Extraordinary Journey.

    He self-published through Xulon Press in October and will be at the Shelby County Public Library for a book signing Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.

  • What we think: New bypass date isn't convincing

    We were pleased to read last week that state transportation officials now believe the Shelbyville Bypass likely will be completed by Labor Day of 2010.

    We would not have believed that forecast if it had come from the project’s contractors, Kay And Kay Contracting. That company’s owner – Bill Robinson – told us in August that its work was about 80 percent complete.

  • The ghosts of Christmas teach us about gifts we sometimes overlook

    On a cold, blowy, darkest of nights, I was awakened with a start by a presence in my room, not that of a child or a pet or even a Japanese beetle but of something the likes of which I’d never seen, sort of an eerie being that seemed to loom.

    He arrived not in Victorian bedclothes but in a work uniform with his name on his breast, his face creased with hard work and palms rough but strong, many muscles rippling in his chest.
