  • West triumphs in county battle

  • Eastern tops Shelby 46-42

    Shelby County couldn't mount a comeback against visiting Eastern, losing 46-42 Saturday night.

    The Lady Rockets' poor shooting, both from the field (12 of 48) and at the line (12 of 26) did more damage than the Eagles. Shelby played with as much scrappy intensity and speed as Eastern (8-6).

    Down by 10 points at halftime, Shelby spent the second half whittling the deficit. They came within three points of Eastern twice within the final minute of the game, on a Leeara Cardwell free throw and then again on a Shayla Bolin free throw.

  • Contractor turning old farm into new animal sanctuary

    Dennis Schuman pointed methodically around the gutted barn. This would be a stall for the lambs, he said, and this would be for the goats, and two would be for the chickens.

    The adjacent, dilapidated milk parlor would be a kennel for dogs. A smaller kennel would house cats. Another barn, just 30 feet away, will be remodeled for horses.

    "What we're going to do is make it into a sanctuary and rescue for pets," Schuman said.

    Stoner wants his story heard. He goes far and wide to tell it. He has told it to the police, to lawyers, to the courts. But no one will listen to him, no one will see his side, no one understands.
