  • EARLIER: Bowling center for sale

    Bluegrass Bowling Center, Shelbyville’s latest incarnation of a bowling alley, may be down to its last frame.

    The center, which Mike and Pam Kiser and their family have operated for nearly 10.5 years, is for sale under foreclosure from Republic Bank.

    Pam Kiser said they quietly have been trying to sell for the past eight months but now they have 30 days to sell or see the facility closed. Officials at Republic had no comment on the procedure.

  • WICHE: Fire blight in ornamental pears

    This past winter we cut down a handful of old apple trees in the orchard because they were so diseased from fire blight. Two large White House ornamental pears and a few crabapples are slated for removal, as well.

    But few could have imagined the end being a series of exclamation points instead of a period.

    And after Shelby outlasted Anderson 10-9 last Thursday, some on both sides lamented the end of the rivalry as it stands now.

  • Shelby's season ends with 3-1 loss to Ryle

    Ryle 3, Shelby County 1

    Shelby came back once early to tie with Dee Dee Davis' run off Courtney Tinsley's single, but Shelby couldn't muster the grit to overcome a determined Ryle in the elimination game.

    Raider Bella Steinle scored two runs, one in the fourth and one in the sixth, to set up Ryle's win. Rocket Jeneca Thomas took the loss while Haylee Smith earned the win. Both teams fought a stiff headwind that held up fly balls for easy outs.
