  • 10-year-olds finish second in district

    The Shelby County 10-year-old All-Star Baseball team nearly pulled the upset Saturday, but it fell just short in the district tournament at Clear Creek Park.

    After falling to Scott County on Thursday, Shelby had to beat Spencer County to get out of the losers' bracket and into the finals.

    Once there, the team topped Scott County, 15-10, forcing a decisive second game Saturday, but they couldn’t pull out the championship.

  • Youngest all-stars learning on the fly

    The 9-year-old Minor League All-Star Team is always full of surprises.

    As Shelby County’s youngest squad, the team is full of first time all-stars getting used to the different play.

    This year’s coach, Ron Leaizer, said he likes what he’s seen so far.

    “I got to watch these kids all year long, and they’re a good, good group of players,” he said. “We’ve only had about eight days of practice, so we’re still learning, but they’re looking like a team now.”

  • Post 37 drills Frankfort

    After a slow start, the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team easily dispatched of Frankfort, 11-3, Tuesday.

    Trailing, 2-1, after three innings, Shelbyville finally woke up.

    Tyler Tipton’s single scored Jordan Toby to tie the score in the fourth, and Shelby took the lead in fifth, when James Wright scored on Jared Clarkson’s single.

    “We played pretty well,” Coach Jim Wiley said. “We made a couple mistakes early, but overall I thought we did all right.”

  • We congratulate: Citizens who ensured July 4 didn't fizzle

    Lost among the sparkles and thunder of the Independence Day weekend were the unselfish contributions of citizens who made sure Shelby Countians could celebrate the right way.

    If you recall, the Parks Board had announced it would not have a fireworks show this year because it was too expensive and too lightly attended. Too many citizens watched from their patios and decks, it seems.

  • Parade, fireworks celebrate independence

     

    Diann Cook of Shelbyville said one of her favorite parts of the fireworks display at Clear Creek Park on Sunday was how the show began.

  • EARLIER: Board delays approval of Collins athletic facilities

    The Shelby County Board of Education decided Thursday night to postpone a decision on the proposed athletic facilities for the new Martha Layne Collins High School because of the objections of one of the members.

    Board member Sam Hinkle said he did not like the plan as presented because the athletic facilities deviated from what had been originally proposed by Sherman-Carter-Barnhart, the architectural firm building the new high school.

  • Harrell to become Shelbyville's official city engineer

    In the past, the City of Shelbyville had to contract out much of its engineering work, leading to some expensive bills and grueling lag times on getting results.

    That way of doing business will change on Aug. 3, when Jennifer Harrell takes her position as the city's first official full-time city engineer and public works director.

    "She'll be able do our engineering duties, to look over development plans. In the past we'd have to contract all that out. Now we'll have a full time person on staff to do it," Mayor Tom Hardesty said.

  • EARLIER: 10-year-old all-stars have eyes on title

    In their second all-star season, this year’s Minor League 10-Year-Old All-Star team should be better prepared as they head into the district tournament today at Clear Creek Park.

    Troy Kuhl, who coached this team last year when it played as 9-year-olds, said he has seen improvement.

  • The name game is a tough one

    One of the most basic facts a newspaper tries desperately to have correct is the spelling of a name. It’s a one of those slap-your-wrists fundamentals we learned at journalism school, because our errors endure in ink on paper.

    Even if every other fact is wrong, we want that one to be right. And, frankly, when it comes to cops and courts, we have to be extra careful. You wouldn’t want to have a wrong name in an arrest report of a serial killer.

    We know we sometimes err, but we sweat the small stuff all the time.
