  • Shelbyville will continue zoning process

    The Shelbyville City Council will begin to wrap up some ongoing business at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at City Hall.

    The city will have a first reading for an ordinance that will set building quality standards on the Shelbyville Bypass, which now has been delayed possibly into 2011.

    The standards will be the same as the overlay district set on Mount Eden, Boone Station and Frankfort roads. The standards say only quality materials can be used for new construction, such as brick-and-mortar buildings.

  • What we think: The bypass is is now a mirage

    This latest morass with the Shelbyville Bypass – that the seemingly never-ending arc of 4.5 miles engineers now say will require a miracle to open before 2011 – leaves us struggling with all sorts of emotions.

    First there is denial.

    We can’t conceive that a road so short could stand incomplete after more than 486 authorized days of construction that started in May of 2006.

  • Titans hold off North Hardin for second win, 49-42

    LEXINGTON – Collins High School’s football team scored seven touchdowns Saturday night in the opening game of the Republic Bank Bluegrass Bowl at Lexington Catholic, but it took a shutdown defensive stand on the last series of the game to turn back a resilient North Hardin squad by a 49-42 final.

    The Titans (2-0), commanded leads of 28-7 and 35-14 in the middle quarters of a game that was delayed about 45 minutes due to an excessive heat index of 100-plus degrees, but allowed the Trojans (1-1) to close within a touchdown with 4:20 left in the final stanza.

  • First person: James Wright’s confidence is building

    Though  there were several heroic moments in the regional baseball games, James Wright certainly had more than his share.


    Wright, a left-handed-hitting senior, stroked a 2-run, walk-off single to defeat North Oldham, then started the first comeback against Anderson County with a home run in the bottom of the sixth. In the 11th inning, it was Wright who came in to pitch and get the final two outs (both batters grounded out). He hadn’t pitched but a couple innings all season.

  • EARLIER: Rockets flame late in opening defeat

    It was supposed to be the unveiling of Shelby County high school football in the new era of a two-school system. What it turned into was a showcase for a powerful Nelson County team.
