  • EARLIER: What we think: City Center show must go on

    And now we know that such conception has been happening in Shelby County, and we, too, could be delivered a bundle of boundless benefit for all.

  • Personal missions drive area bikers preparing for 150-mile ride

    Several thousand cyclists will ride through Shelby County this weekend, braving a strong chance of rain, wipeouts and enough flying insects to make them "look like the grill of a Mack truck," as rider Dan Mutterer put it.

  • Rockets struggle through regional

    The SCHS boys’ golf team had a 10-1 record in nine-hole matches, but tournaments seemed to be their problem all year long.

    That trend didn’t change Tuesday in the Region 6 Tournament at Seneca Park Golf Course.

    The Rockets struggled early and often, finishing with a 352. Tayler Adams, playing in the Rockets’ No. 3 spot, led the way for Shelby County with an 84. Rounding out the squad were Josh Griffin, with an 85, Josh Kuhn, with a 91, Jared Redmon, with a 92, and Turner Mayton, with a 95.

  • 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.
