  • GIRLS BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Building for future at SCHS

    This season will be as much about laying a foundation as it will be about the present for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team.

  • Brooks quarterbacks Titans' D

    Michael Brooks has scored 10 touchdowns this football season.

    The Collins High School junior has eight TDs as a running back and two – returns of an interception and a fumble – from his linebacker position.

    But there’s one thing that Brooks says he likes more than a touchdown – making a tackle.

    “It stops the other team from scoring,” he said. “Defense is more important than offense at this point.”

  • Her hope is everlasting

    After going through many rounds of chemotherapy treatment at Kosair Children’s Hospital and learning that she would indeed be home for Christmas, 4-year-old Hanna Evans thought about her new-found friends at the hospital, the ones who might not get to go home, and she decided they needed toys.

  • Henry Cleveland:1922-2010

    But what those who knew him will miss most is his smile and the genuine love he showed for people.

    The first time Caterina Karas competed in a running event, she ended up in tears.

  • Election 2010: There were small problems, big turnout

    A voting machine mix-up and a broken vote counter led to an interesting Election Day in the Shelby County Clerk's Office, but all-in-all Sue Carole Perry said she couldn't complain.

    "It's a much less stressful day when you're running unopposed," she joked. "Really, though, it wasn't too bad."

    The results were posted by about 9 p.m., and Shelby was not the last county in the voting district to post results, that honor falling to Bullitt County for the third consecutive election.

  • Murder suspect back in court Dec. 7

    The man accused of slashing his girlfriend’s throat earlier this year did not appear as scheduled Tuesday in Anderson Circuit Court, and is now scheduled to appear Dec. 7. Gary M.
