  • Sharks have strong 12-and-under state meet

    The younger Shelby Sharks squad dropped time in more than 70 percent of their swims at the 12-and-under state meet at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatics Center in Louisville over the weekend.

    Sam Ruble stole the show during the meet. Not only did he make the finals in all seven of his events, but also he was less than five hundredths of a second off of the Sharks’ team records in all seven events.

    He placed third in the 50 fly and freestyle, sixth in the 100 back and seventh in the 100 free.

  • Lady Rockets whip Eastern

    A lot of patience at the plate, a couple timely hits and a much-improved defense led the Lady Rockets to an 8-4 victory at Eastern Tuesday.

    They had just five hits but earned an astounding 12 walks against the Eagles.

    “We scored four runs in the first on just one hit, and that wasn’t even an RBI,” SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said.

    The Lady Rockets had just one hit that scored runs, a two-run single from Dee Dee Davis in the fifth, but they were able to force Eastern into giving up runs.

  • Spencer County students promote awareness of underage drinking

      Students from Spencer County High School, along with the Shelbyville and Taylorsville Police Departments, pasted MADD stickers on cartons of beer at local liquor outlets on Wednesday.

      The intent behind the stickers, sponsored by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers), is to deter the purchase of alcoholic beverages by persons under 21 years old, said Jenice Prather, a teacher at Spencer County High.

  • Rockets top Meade County for first victory

    The SCHS baseball team bounced back from a loss in the opener Monday to beat visiting Meade County 8-3 Tuesday.

    The Rockets (1-1) got behind early but rallied with a big fourth inning to take the lead.

    “I was a little worried because Meade County came out hitting and picked up two runs in the top of the first,” SCHS Coach Bart Roettger said. “We dug ourselves a hole again and had to work out of it.”

    The Rockets continued to trail 2-0 into the fourth when the bats finally woke up.

  • Bypass construction to resume

    Winter appears to be over, and that means that construction will resume next week on the Shelbyville Bypass.

    Andrea Clifford, spokesperson for the Department of Highways District 7, said that with the exception of a slight diversion at Warriors Way, where the speed limit has been reduced to 35 miles per hour, she doesn't expect the construction to cause any major delays or traffic tie-ups.

    Clifford said the contract that Shelby County has with the state gives the state a certain amount of days to finish this $26.1 million project.

  • You can take the boy out of the country, butee

    When we were first married, my wife, Rhonda, and I lived on the south end of Louisville (the Iroquois Park/Fairdale areas).  Generally speaking, the folks that live in those areas would fit very nicely into a Jeff Foxworthy routine, and we fit in rather well with them.

    One Christmas, we and a few other couples decided to go out for a night of high culture, which for us normally meant an evening at the softball park followed by pizza, or if we were really feeling sophisticated, bowling and dinner at Po’ Folks or Big Boy.
