  • Sometimes God has to get our attention

    I was recently reminded of the old story about the farmer who sold a mule, telling the buyer that the animal would do anything as long as he was asked nicely.  The next day, the buyer returned and shared a tale of frustration because the stubborn mule would not do a thing – no matter how many times he was asked nicely.

    Upon hearing this report, the farmer picked up a wooden 2-by-4 that was leaning against his barn, walked right up to the mule and hit the unsuspecting animal square in the head.  Then he whispered, "Please pull that plow."&n

  • SCHS to adopt 3-term calendar

    Shelby County High School will switch its school calendar next year from the semester schedule that has been in place for years to a 3-session structure, Shelby County High School Principal Michael Rowe said Friday.

    That new calendar, consisting of three 12-week sessions, was approved this week by the school's site-based decision-making council. That means this change does not require approval by the school board.

  • Heavy hauling company will be on themove

    In tough economic times when many companies are having trouble staying in business, one local company is preparing to expand.

  • Tractor-trailer overturns on I-64; driver unhurt

    A semi-tractor-trailer overturned on Interstate 64 on Thursday morning just east of the Jefferson/Shelby County line.

    The accident happened just after 9 a.m. when the rig left the roadway, traveling east on I-64.

    Kentucky State Police Trooper Ron Turley said he did not any information he could release on the accident, except that the driver of the truck was not injured.

  • Johnson’s 33 carries Shelby over Simon Kenton

    The Rockets (9-13) showed flashes of being the high-powered team many expected this year in a 75-69 victory over visiting Simon Kenton (7-12) Friday.

    Donovan Johnson exploded for 33 points – on 13-of-17 shooting – and eight rebounds to lead Shelby County.

    “That was definitely Donovan’s best game as a Rocket,” SCHS Coach Mike Clark said. “But the most impressive thing I saw when I looked at the stat sheet was his zero turnovers. Against their [Simon Kenton’s] four-guard line-up, that was very impressive for him.”

  • Niehof: We must move along our students

    James Neihof, Shelby County School superintendent, was the keynote speaker Tuesday at a luncheon for the Home Builders Association held at Claudia Sanders Dinner House.

    Neihof had brought along a sketch of the new secondary center for Shelby County Schools. The facility, as yet unnamed, to be located on Discovery Boulevard near Simpsonville on U.S. 60., is expected to open in 2010.
