  • Soccer: Rockets rained out of Bulldog Cup

    The only real winner in the Male High School Bulldog Cup this year was Mother Nature.

    The Rockets played just one of what likely would have been a three- or four- game run for Shelby County.

    SCHS tied Kentucky Country Day, 0-0, Saturday but needed a three-goal victory to advance to a makeshift title game.

    SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said his again dominated but again couldn’t win. The Rockets are now 6-3-5 on the season.

  • We congratulate: A vibrant library that serves us well

    One of the treasures of Shelby County that gets much less attention that it deserves is the Shelby County Public Library.

    We are not here to shill for the community – indeed, we want to cast a critical eye of inspiration – but we have to admit how impressed we have been with the library.

    Large communities may take such amenities for granted, but those in charge in Shelby County have thought big and performed well when it comes to extending the branch of literacy for all to accept.

  • Nelson trips up Lady Rockets

    The SCHS girls’ volleyball team had been on tear until Nelson County visited Tuesday.

    The Lady Cardinals dominated the first game and held off Shelby in the second game for a 2-0 (25-17, 25-22) victory.

    The Lady Rockets pulled to 10-7 and made it close again at 16-14 before Nelson pulled away in that first game.

    “Nelson County is a tough team that plays very good defense,” SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said. “We can’t come out with such a slow opening.”

  • EARLIER: Rockets getting some love

  • EARLIER; After big hit, Axline delivering them

    No sense taking it easy after returning from a concussion.

    Shelby County’s Ben Axline was back in the lineup last week against Seneca after missing the North Hardin game. All he did was lead the Rockets with seven catches for 139 yards, score two TDs and deliver the two biggest hits of the game.

    In fact, Axline, a junior, has been involved with the three biggest hits this season.

  • How and why to spoil (or not spoil) your kids

    If you’ve ever wondered why so many people spoil their children, it’s simple.  They get two big payoffs.

    First, the obvious: it’s easier just to get through the moment by indulging children’s demands, rather than stopping to teach them a lesson. And the more subtle reason is that by living for and through the child, they can avoid all their own feelings, issues and responsibilities. It’s like a drug—a pain-killing escape from reality.
