  • School's out for veteran teacher Jennings

    In 1966 Ernestine Jennings graduated from Shelby County High School, and now, for the second time, she's leaving the school.

    After teaching for 41 years, the first six at Shelbyville High School, and the rest at SCHS, Jennings, 61, has retired.

    "It just seemed like the right time," she said. "I've been thinking about it for a while, the first time in 2002. But then I just decided I wasn't quite ready."

  • WICHE: Bagworms are on the move, slowly

    I received a call the other day about what to do with a blue spruce covered in bagworms.

    The tree is apparently covered (and large), so hand-picking was not an option. The caller said the pest was rather large, too, so I had to recommend a systemic insecticide as the treatment.

    I prefer that we catch the bagworms earlier in the season so that we can take a biological approach but this is not always the case.

  • If this is our summer, what will August bring?

    The man calling the radio show said he was visiting Mount Hood in Oregon. It was 4:45 a.m. there, and he said the temperature was in the 50s.

    He said the high on Monday was 85, but the heat index was 70, meaning wind chill was at play, as were snowboarders and skiers who ventured to the summit of the mountain, about 12,000 feet up.

  • New-author Barber is old hat at preaching

    Rev. Stephanie Barber was raised in a congregation of Southern Baptists where it just wasn’t proper or expected for women to preach or teach the word of God.  

    Even on the day she said God spoke to her and gave her the message to deliver His word, she still thought about that obstacle.

  • 2 Ripken teams lose in finals

    Shelby County’s 10- and 12-year-old all-star teams each played into the finals of their Cal Ripken State Tournaments but couldn’t quite pull out the titles.

    The 10-year-old all-stars lost to Scott County, 17-7, Monday night at Georgetown.

    “They battled back,” Coach Ron Leazier said. “I’m so tickled to be state runner-up. We fought hard. The fans were behind us. It was exciting baseball.”
