  • Penny shines as Rockets fall

    After a full regular season, the district tournament and two rounds of the 8th Region Tournament, Shelby County's basketball season came down to fewer than five ticks on the clock Tuesday night.

    After a missed free throw — something that had proven to be a trend for the Rockets all evening — Anderson County controlled  the rebound and got the ball to its best player, C.J. Penny.

  • What we think: New school idea has our attention

     Another week has delivered another interesting new discussion about how the Shelby County School Board will structure the new campus it is building west of Shelbyville.

    This is not bad news, mind you. In fact, we suggested three weeks ago that the board members needed to take more time to review the plan it had adopted. There were problematic factors and vacillating forecasts that needed another evaluation.

  • The Mitchell Toll Band is coming to town

     Attention Shelbyville -- A musical revolution is about to begin.

      "We are the Mitchell Toll Band," Brent Mathis stamped as he spoke his message proudly, as if he were in front of hundreds of adoring fans instead of on the phone with a small-town reporter.

      But the band soon will have a larger audience, as it goes front and center at the Shelby County Community Theatre on March 27.

  • Bulldog earns KCAA’s top honor

    There are still more than two months left in the school year, but March 7 capped off a big year for Cornerstone Christian Academy’s Patrick Maurer.

    Having already been named the Mr. CCA by the teachers and voted the homecoming king, Maurer added to KCAA Mr. Basketball to his list.

    “We’ve been teasing him, calling him Triple Crown,” his mom, Pat Maurer, said.

    After the Bulldogs lost, 58-55, to North Hardin Christian School in the KCAA championship game, the teams waited around for the awards ceremony.

    Shatia Rogers, who has moved from doubles to singles this year, returns a shot Monday against Frankfort. Rogers won her match, 6-1, 6-1, to help the Lady Rockets to a 5-0 victory in the season opener.

    The Shelby County girls' tennis team picked up where it left off last season with a 5-0 victory over visiting Frankfort in the season opener Monday.

  • Lady Rockets win opener

    The defense was a little shaky, but Dee Dee Davis’ big hit got the Lady Rockets a big season-opening road victory, 7-5, at Oldham County on Monday.

    Trailing, 5-4, in the top of the sixth, Davis ripped a two-out, two-run home run, scoring Hannah Stucker. The shot just squeaked over the fence, but it was by far the biggest hit for the Lady Rockets and Davis’ first career home run.

    Davis also added a single and an RBI double to cap off a big night.

  • Fired Up

      Some of his friends smile when they hear his name mentioned. Some call him a character.

    But whatever you call him, when you call him to come through for his community, he will be there.

    Elmer Brown, former Waddy fire chief, is still a familiar face around the firehouse. He has been a volunteer firefighter at Waddy since 1975, with a 2-year stint as chief in the 1980s.

    “It gets in your blood,” he said, with a crooked grin for which he is famous far beyond the fringes of Waddy.
