  • Titans tie for 10th-place

    It may not have been the start that the Collins boys’ golf team had wanted, but it was solid enough nonetheless against some of the state’s top teams.

    The Titans tied for 10th-place in the 13th annual, two-day, Flyer Classic. Collins carded a team score of a 25-over-par 305 (which also tied it for 10th) in Monday’s first round at Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort. Then followed that up with a second day 30-over-par 318 at Marriott Griffin Gate Resort & Spa in Lexington.

  • Rockets finish seventh

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team started this season just like it ended last season, and Coach Anna Simpson was anything but disappointed.

    The Rockets, who finished seventh in the State Tournament last year, came in seventh in Monday’s Henry County Invitational at Henry County Country Club.

  • Shelby shows early improvement

    The Shelby County boys’ golf team showed vast improvement in its 2011 season-opening tournament.

    In the inaugural Rocket Invitational at Weissinger Hills the Rockets shot a collective 357 – a very pleasing score to Shelby County Coach Matt Redmon.

    “It’s about a 50-stroke improvement from the first tournament last year,” Redmon said. “But even though we improved so much we didn’t show how much improvement we’ve had [in practice]. We’re capable of shooting 20 shots better.”

  • Two KHSAA state championship sites moved

    Three of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s state championship events will have new homes starting with the 2011-12 school year.

  • Post 37 wraps up season at state tourney

    It was an up-and-down season for the American Legion Shelbyville Post 37 baseball team, and it ended in an up-and-down fashion.

    Shelbyville won its first game in last week's State Tournament at Morehead State University but lost its next two contests to be eliminated.

    Post 37 (which finished with an appropriate 16-16 record) started things off by beating the Edmonton Post 65 Mustangs from Metcalfe County, the defending state champs, 16-14, last Tuesday. 

  • An example of life imitating art – or at least the ‘Andy Griffith Show’

    Those black-and-white lessons we learned from our devotion to the scriptures of the Andy Griffith Show typically seem lost in the transcendent Technicolor of today.

    The tenets taught to us by Andy, Barney and the gang too often seem maudlin and misplaced in the constant churn of our lives, when we seldom slow down to inhale the sweet fragrance of love and life and spin like another damp load cycling down in a washing machine.

  • What we think: Not all budgets have problems

    The ongoing – and seemingly never-ending – debate about the fiscal irresponsibility of the United States government is a tiresome, fearsome and even loathsome process that all of us as taxpayers and voters have to endure and sort through to help us make valued decisions about the capabilities of our elected leadership.

  • What we think: Cordy Armstrong will be missed

    Shelby County lost one of its truest and most dedicated servants last week, when longtime magistrate Cordy Armstrong passed away.

    All you have to do is read the glowing tributes to Mr. Armstrong’s character and commitment – which aren’t always linked when talking about public officials – to understand what those who knew him best and worked alongside him thought of his contributions to our society.

  • Shelbyville Horse Show: The stars expected on hot opening night

    Despite the continuous heat wave plaguing Shelby County and an absence of volunteers, the Shelbyville Horse Show already started rolling days ago for people preparing and primping their horses and the fairgrounds.

    Horse Show Manager R.H. Bennett said the weather looks like it’s going to be hot, and he’s worried about people not coming because of the heat.

    However, he still said he feels like people will come.

    “Our locals tend to catch our excitement,” he said. “It’s already catching.”
