    West Middle School got its payback and the Mid Bluegrass Conference Tournament Football Championship with a 6-0 victory over rival East Middle on Saturday at North Oldham.

    "I could not have asked for a better match from the girls," SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said. "They worked hard and never backed down."

    Henry County won the first game, but the Rockets battled back to take games two and three.

  • Rockets close but can't hold off GRC

    GRC's Ryan Williams scored on runs of 68 and 52 yards in the first half, but the Cardinals (5-2, 1-1) could only manage 34 total yards rushing in the second half as the defense adjusted and shut down GRC's offense.

  • Simpsonville moves forward on downtown 'vision'

    The Simpsonville City Commission Tuesday voted to advertise and accept bids from consulting firms that would draw up plans for a downtown district.

    Earlier this year, the commission asked Triple S Planning and Zoning Executive Director Ryan Libke to help the city take a look at the U.S. 60 corridor through Simpsonville by using a small-area study. Such a study would find ways to create a true downtown Simpsonville along U. S. 60.

  • A trip to the farm, and the 'good old days'

    Last weekend, my wife and I loaded up the front-wheel drive sleigh and headed to the country for one of those long-standing, old-fashioned family traditions that we just started - picking apples.

    It was the perfect afternoon for a relaxing, quiet day on the farm. The sun was shining, a light breeze was blowing, and the temperature was a comfortable 80 degrees.

    So we headed to Huber Farms, which is just outside the Louisville metropolitan area in the rolling hills of Floyd's Knobs, Ind., to spend the day with Joe Huber and his family and about 30,000 of our closest friends.

  • 'Burn After Reading' is stupid, violent and loads of fun

    Very rarely do I see a film in which they show every detail of somebody getting shot in the head at point-blank range. It's even more rare for me to see this and laugh out loud.

    But that was the response from the audience watching Burn After Reading, the Coen Brothers' latest release.

    It's over-the-top in both humor and in violence, leading the audience from giggles to gasps and back in the blink of an eye.
