  • We congratulate: Fair board for its success

    A year ago we brought forward some significant ideas for the Shelby County Fair.

    We feared a disconnect with the community, and we felt the expense was pushing away the public.

    We think there is work to be done in both those areas, but we have to give the Fair Board a blue ribbon for its efforts this year.

  • What we think: Statue for Stratton is a terrific idea

    The county parks board sure knew how to celebrate July 4th this year, and we’re not talking about the fireworks show on Monday.

    Its dedication on Sunday of bronze sculptures to honor Bobby Stratton’s contributions to the baseball programs – and youth – of Shelby County was, in our minds, a waist-high fastball right down the middle.

  • EARLIER: Legion earns back-to-back victories

    By Laura Clark

    American Legion Post 37 put together two victories built on solid pitching that may be the beginning of the turnaround Coach Jim Wiley predicted – and hoped for.

    Shelbyville (6-3) defeated Frankfort on the road Tuesday, 4-2, and beat Morehead at home, 9-3, Wednesday.

    “That was a couple of good back-to-back wins for us,” Wiley said. “That makes it a whole lot easier to coach when you got out and get a lead like that and you’ve got someone on the mound who can control the game.”

  • EARLIER: Legion splits games in Paducah

    By Laura Clark

    The American Legion Post 37 team continued to struggle on the mound during its tournament in Paducah this past weekend, splitting four games.

    “We had a real good chance of winning every game we played if we just got some help from our pitching,” Coach Jim Wiley said.

    His team (4-3) was playing without three pitchers and a catcher who were invited to the KHSAA East-West All Star game.
