  • Rockets drill Boyle County, 78-59

    The Shelby County boys' basketball team bounced back from its first loss of the season with a dominating 78-59 win over Boyle County Tuesday.

    The Rockets came out a little slow, allowing Boyle 20 points in the first quarter, but Shelby turned up the pressure over the second and third quarters, outscoring the Rebels 43-17 over the second and third quarters combined.

    "Our transition and help defense was not very good to start, but we made some adjustments in the second quarter and withstood some foul trouble for the first time this year," SCHS head coach Mike Clark said.

  • Catalpagreen hearing set for Tuesday

    Developers will reveal preliminary plans to zoning commissioners Tuesday night for a proposed 239-lot subdivision, known as Catalpagreen.

    WAZE LLC, reportedly plans to construct mostly single-family units on more than 120 acres near U.S. 60 and Ardmore Lane, according to Ryan Libke, executive director for Triple S PLanning and Zoning. The development calls for some patio-style duplex units, he added.

  • ATV champs to be honored

    Think Easyrider teamed up with backroads dirt and hills.

    ATV racing has become a popular local sport with more than 70 competitors lined up per race through the state Harescramble association.

    Two local residents have risen to the top of the state level in ATV racing and will be honored Saturday night for their winning ATV skills through the state Harescrambles organization.

    Bryce Gartman and Mike Husband will be two of the statewide race winners honored at an awards banquet at Claudia Sanders.

  • Politics and Jesus

    Religion, like it or not, is one of the underlining principles that will influence the way that many voters will cast their ballot this November. In local, state and nation contests, the candidates' religious affiliation, not the their voting record or previous experience, will be the determining factor for many voters.

    But this begs the question, "Would Jesus do that?"

    According to a poll released last fall by the Pew Forum and Research Center, 69 percent of Americans agree that it is important for a president to have strong religious beliefs.

  • Bobcat unleashed at Simpsonville

    A local conservationist has recently helped students at Simpsonville Elementary school get a visual of what their school's mascot really looks.

    Horace Brown, chairman of the Kentucky Environmental Education Council and local outdoorsman, donated a picture he took of a bobcat to the school.

    School administrators said the framed picture of the "Simpsonville Bobcat" was greatly appreciated and will be displayed in a place of honor in the school.

  • Lady Rockets face tough task at No. 10 North Hardin

    The Shelby County girls' basketball team will travel to North Hardin Saturday to face the No. 10-ranked Lady Trojans at 7:30 p.m.

    North Hardin has lost just three games this season and only twice to instate teams -- a 70-61 loss on No. 26 to Hart County and a 46-38 loss on Jan. 3 to No. 4-ranked Elizabethtown. The Lady Trojans also already have wins over four top 10 teams.

    "They're extremely athletic and quick," SHCS head coach Sally Zimmerman said. "I'd compare them to Dunbar because they're going to pressure you for 32 minutes and not let you get into any kind of offense."

  • BINGO!

    When Arlene Self, 44, of Shelbyville hits the bingo halls, she rarely goes alone. Instead, a small, spotted dog and an angel accompany her. Both are trinkets Self carries in her "bingo bag" to bring her good luck.

    Her angel is actually a plastic figurine necklace, she explained. The dog is a Dalmatian cigarette lighter that Self inherited from her mother-in-law.

    "She always did pretty good at Bingo," she said.

  • The gift of the world

    In response to the local gift giving to the Reading Reindeer Program, I find it wonderful that the community can donate books to children.

    As a teacher of Reading, I see so many children who hate to read. Mostly, these children do not have a book to read, one that they would enjoy, only ones that they have to read for school. You can not imagine how the joy shines on a child's face who receives a book - especially a child who has none or few at home.
