    Berlin and Mayor Brandt

    From Bonn, the de facto capital of the Federal Republic of Germany, we were flown into West Berlin, then an Allied portion of a divided city. West Berlin was separated by 100 miles from the eastern border of West Germany and only accessible by land by narrow rail and highway corridors. It consisted of the American, British, and French occupation sectors established in 1945. It was, however, a de facto part of West Germany. At the same time, East Berlin, occupied and administered by the Soviet Union, was the de facto capital of East Germany.

  • Shelby County’s rally falls short

    Despite a valiant second half comeback effort, Shelby County boys’ basketball could not find a way to put away district foe Anderson County Friday.

    After scoring no points in the first quarter and six points as a team in the second frame, the Rockets (2-12) came out of the halftime break trailing 22-6 but with a more up-tempo style of offense, and it paid dividends as SCHS gave the visiting Bearcats (5-8) all it could handle.

    The Titan boys’ basketball team closed out its slate of fantastic weekend performances with a 19-point drubbing of 8th Region foe Grant County on Saturday afternoon.

    Guard Jacob Feltner was feeling it on offense, scoring a game-high 23 and knocking down five of his six shot attempts from three-point range, 83 percent.

    Thanks to a solid shooting night from behind the arc and massive scoring performances from guards Kayla Bruner and Raydriana Stoudemire, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team had enough offensive firepower to pick up the win over a solid Jeffersontown (8-4) team on Saturday, 57-52.

  • Collins drops fourth straight at Spencer

    Limited minutes from sophomore point guard Olivia Federle and too many self-inflicted mistakes were just too much to overcome for Collins girls’ basketball in a 53-39 loss at district opponent Spencer County on Friday.

    “It was a very competitive game,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said. “They [Spencer] are a good team and it is a tough place to play, but it was great environment and should help us get better as move forward.”

    “All the county offices are up for reelection,”Shelby County Clerk Sue Carol Perry said.  “The filing deadline for that is January 30 at 4 p.m.”

    Perry said with such a large election coming up, the number of filings her office has encountered thus far surprises her.

    The Shelby County Board of Education will have the final vote on the 2018-19 school year calendar when it convenes Thursday for its regularly scheduled meeting at 7 p.m. at the district offices, 1155 West Main Street, Shelbyville.

    Last month, Mike Clark, the district’s director of student services, presented two calendar options to the board for their vote.

    While the board will consider just two options, Clark said the process of narrowing down the options was a diligent process that spanned across four calendar committee meetings.
