  • 2 sets of Lady Rockets collide this weekend

    The Lady Rockets will post a victory this weekend, but the question is which group it will be.

    Rockcastle County, also the Lady Rockets, will face Shelby County at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Garrard County Classic.

    And a shared nickname is not the only similarity between the two.

  • Ice-cold Lady Rockets fall to Rockcastle

    Sometimes you just have to forget about a loss, and that’s exactly what SCHS girls’ basketball coach Phillip Conder hopes his team does with Saturday’s 56-24 beating by Rockcastle County.

    Rockcastle (4-1) jumped out with an 8-0 run, and that was about as close as these icy Lady Rockets (1-3) would get.

    Shelby County scored just four points in the first quarter, on two field goals from Aaliyah Wells, and just two points, on two free throws by Dee Dee Davis in the second.

  • Injured passenger in fatal accident may go home today

    The high school student injured in that fatal accident in Shelbyville on Dec. 1 may go home today.

    Driver Ashley Ford was killed, and David Baker was hurt seriously when a pickup truck struck Ford's car just west of the fairgrounds.

    Baker, who had to be airlifted to the University of Louisville Medical Center with unspecified injuries, said Tuesday he is doing much better.

  • Johnson ready to lead Rockets

    Through three games last season, the SCHS boys’ basketball team was 1-2, and it wouldn't win on the road until Dec. 22.

    This season, Shelby has turned all that around. The Rockets are 3-0 and already has won at Trinity and Dunbar.

    What’s the difference?

    SCHS senior Donovan Johnson is coming ready to play.

    “I don’t feel like I have to get warmed-up in the game now,” he said. “I’m trying to go game speed during warm-ups, so I can be ready.

  • 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.”

  • Schools to offer H1N1 vaccines before winter break

    The long-awaited opportunity for Shelby County Public Schools students to be vaccinated against the H1N1 virus finally is becoming a reality.

    Consent forms are due today from parents who would like their children to receive those vaccinations. An informational packet and form were sent home Monday with students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

  • 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.
