  • Ramp closings on I-64 this week

     If you travel I-64 around Shelbyville during the evening or early morning hours, you might have to find some alternate routes.

    The repaving project that has been under way between the Simpsonville and KY 55 (Taylorsville Road) exit will expand to cause some ramp closings during the next few nights.

    Here’s what the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says you can expect:

  • High school math could be more accessible for qualified middle school students

    The Shelby County Public School Board recently waived an existing policy to allow a single, upcoming seventh-grader to take a high school math class this year for credit toward graduation.

    That policy was set so that only eighth-graders who had mastered their middle school math content could take high school level algebra early.

    The board waived it once, and soon it may be waived for good.

  • High school math now open to all qualifying middle school students

    The Shelby County Public Schools Board declared a positive first reading Thursday of policy 08.113, which would to allow all middle school students who qualify to take high school level algebra early for credit toward graduation.

    The policy had limited the possibility to eighth-graders who had mastered middle school math, but last month the board waived the policy so a single upcoming seventh-grader could take algebra I for high school credit. That got Superintendent James Neihof thinking.

  • Man indicted for attacking state trooper

    A Shelbyville man has been indicted on several charges incurred during a May 8 altercation with a state trooper that sent both of them to the hospital.

    James L. Shuck, 23, was indicted for second-degree burglary, third-degree assault, first-degree fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest.

    Shuck was arrested after an altercation with Kentucky State Police Trooper Hunter Martin on Village Lane in which the trooper used his Taser on Shuck twice, then fired his revolver at him.

  • Lady Rockets whip Seneca

    The SCHS girls’ soccer team hammered visiting Seneca, 10-0, Monday in a season-opening game shortened by the mercy rule.

    Sophomore forwards Sarah Robinson and Alex Patterson led a potent Shelby County attack. Robinson finished with a hat trick and two assists, and Patterson had two goals and three assists.

  • Lady Rockets beat Sacred Heart, win Central Hardin event

    The SCHS girls’ golf team got some payback against Sacred Heart on Monday.

    The Valkyries had beaten Shelby County twice this season, but the Lady Rockets topped them, 173-204, at Weissinger Hills. Although Sacred Heart didn’t bring three of its usual top four, SCHS Coach Anna Simpson said it wouldn’t have mattered.

    “I don’t think they would’ve been able to make up 31 strokes,” she said.

    The resident had reportedly left the residence open while visiting a neighbor for a few minutes.
