  • EARLIER: It's time to get ready for winter weather

    If you've ignored the wooly worms and the squirrels and all the other dire forecasts that a cruel winter may be upon us, Shelby County Fiscal Court wants to make sure you don't miss the news.

    Magistrates proclaimed this week as Winter Weather Awareness week, and that's more than just a slogan to Emergency Management Agency Director Charlie Frazee, the man who proposed it.

  • WICHE: Here’s how to have a homemade holiday

    I’m considering a predominately homemade holiday. My friend Pernilla suggested that all gifts should be ones that can “be used up” for a good purpose. So, something one could eat, use to cook with, to bathe with; perhaps something we could decorate with and when finished it would be a good addition to the compost pile? 

  • Fiscal Court approves sheriff's 2010 budget

    Shelby County Fiscal Court voted Tuesday to accept the 2010 budget submitted by Shelby County Sheriff Mike Armstrong that included a slight increase from 2009.  Armstrong’s 2010 budget is projected to include $1,310,200 in tax receipt

  • A joyful noise

    The Christmas Parade held Saturday in downtown Shelbyville had something for everyone, for kids from 1 to 92.

    No one complained as Jack Frost nipped at their noses, and the crowd delighted in floats, marching bands, fire trucks decked out in holiday bows, dancing groups, and best of all, the jolly old elf himself as Santa Claus brought up the rear of a nearly 2-hour procession.

  • Frankfort Road accident victim dies

    A Frankfort woman who had been in critical condition since being injured in a single-vehicle auto accident Wednesday has died. Clarice Agnes Barber Burch, 46, of Frankfort, died Saturday at the University of Louisville Hospital, where she had been airlifted following the accident late Wednesday afternoon.

  • EARLIER: Harley: If we move, it will be Shelby

    A surge of hope mixed with optimism is pulsing through Shelby County — and Kentucky — today, little more than a day after Harley-Davidson officials announced Shelby is their remaining option as a site for their largest production facility. That plant could remain in York County, Pa. — where it has been since 1976.

  • 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.
