  • UK recruit Zollo, Clark County at SCHS on Saturday

    Shelby County fans can get their first look at University of Kentucky commitment Vinny Zollo on Saturday, when he visits SCHS with his Clark County Cardinals.

    Though Zollo, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, is the center of attention after committing to UK last summer, he brings a balanced and talented Clark County squad with him. The Cardinals are 10-3 and have two of the state’s top sophomores in Zollo and 6-3 guard Robbie Stenzel.

  • Mad about hats

    “Well,” said Carla Smith, adjusting a hat at a jaunty  angle on the head of Leukemia patient Judy Adler, “It all started in October, which was designated Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”

    That's when Smith, a mamographer, RT(R)(M), at Jewish Hospital Shelbyville, started a drive to collect hats and scarves for local ladies undergoing chemotherapy.

  • A parade can really get the holiday spirit flowing

     You probably were standing in the bone-chilling cold Saturday and watching Santa arrive in Shelbyville at the end of a long parade.

    Chances are, you’ve been there before, sometimes huddled in the rain, sometimes elbow-to-elbow with friends but always enjoying the magic and anticipation that the parade represents.

    This has been a great tradition of Shelbyville as long as I can remember. It’s no made-for-TV production, but it’s ours.

  • Slow start ends Rockets' upset bid at Ryle

    The Ryle Raiders raced out to a 16-2 lead and never looked back, topping the visiting Rockets, 69-56, Saturday.

    The slow start put Shelby County (7-13) in a hole the team just couldn't climb out of against the Raiders (12-6).

    "The first four minutes really hurt us," SCHS Coach Mike Clark said. "I thought we played hard for about 28 minutes, but we just got to far behind."

    The Rockets were able to trim the lead to six points early in the fourth quarter, but Ryle would not be denied.

  • Group from Shelbyville witnesses Obama's inauguration

    WASHINGTON – Linda Manica yelled “hallelujah” as she neared the inauguration ceremony of Barack Obama on Tuesday.

  • SCHS girls win ugly opener

    It wasn’t exactly the way Shelby County's girls basketball team thought the opener would go, but it still started the season 1-0 Monday.

    The Rockets allowed Carroll County just two points in the fourth quarter as they pulled away for a 44-34 victory.

    But though their defense was overwhelming, their offense was underwhelming. The Rockets shot just 23.1 percent in the game, hitting just 15 of 65 shots.

  • Property owners sue over deal gone awry

    A group of local property owners are suing a development company that they say failed to honor an agreement to buy a parcel of land from them and three governmental bodies whose restrictions they believe contributed to the breakdown of their deal.

  • Turnovers doom Rockets in opener

    Turning the ball over 25 times makes it tough to win on the road.

    Add to that Seneca’s relentless press and Shelby County’s poor shot selection, and you have a 67-66 victory by the Redhawks in SCHS's season opener.

    Seneca took its first lead of the game, 30-28, with a drive and lay-in at the buzzer before halftime. After a seesaw third quarter, the Rockets again found themselves trailing by one, 51-50, going into the final quarter. That’s when the Redhawks' press really took over.
