  • Local elk hunt on air this week

    Shelby County’s Kathy Smith will make her television debut this week on Huntin’ The World Southern Style on the Outdoor Channel.

    Smith filmed the show last October after she was selected in Kentucky’s lottery for elk tags. Not only did Smith receive one of just 1,000 elk tags, but her tag was also one of just 250 bull tags.

    After spending a day hunting with the show, Smith bagged a bull that weighed in at more than 800 pounds, field dressed, and was more than 9-feet long.

  • Roads slick, schools closed

    UPDATE 9:40 a.m.: Black ice and a layer of snow caused numerous accidents and road blockages and created a very treacherous Tuesday morning in Shelby County. Ice and about an inch of snow caught road crews by surprise, spawning those accidents and forcing Shelby County schools to be closed. Vehicles were sliding without even moving along U.S. 60, and a car was upside down on Buck Creek Road. Long lines of backups kept vehicles from moving up and down hills.

  • Rockets' 31-point second quarter leads to victory at North Oldham

    GOSHEN -- The Rockets rebounded from an early deficit to defeat North Oldham 84-75 Friday night.

    It was an emotionally charged game before it started, with North Oldham fans taunting almost-Mustang Darryl Hicks. But Hicks shook it off, and the freshman rode that intensity to 21 points and 10 rebounds.

    Three more Rockets scored in double digits: Boomer Beckley, Cache Tomlinson and Donovan Johnson. Johnson also had a double-double with 18 points, 11 rebounds.

  • EARLIER: New legislative session begins with many questions

    Lawmakers opened Tuesday what no doubt will be a busy General Assembly.

    With the budget and all its problems looming, the state house and senate will look to make changes in education and several other areas.

    Gov. Steve Beshear got a jump Monday by releasing his proposal to balance the state's budget. It appears to use creative cuts and not make a big slice in education, as had been feared.

    But that doesn't mean there won't be education reform.
