  • SOUDER: It’s a small world after all

    I have previously listed in this column what I consider the two most important truths in the universe: 1) There is a God, and 2) You’re not Him.

    Today I would like to offer this corollary truth: God is BIG, and we are small.

    Many have undertaken to explain exactly how big God is. One old preacher said it this way, “God is so big He bumps into Himself.”

    That’s pretty big.

  • 14-year-old all-stars are Babe Ruth state runners-up

    Shelby mounted rally after rally Monday night against South Lexington, but Lexington stayed one-run ahead of Shelby and stopped two bases-loaded attempts to win the East Kentucky Babe Ruth Championship, 10-9, at the Shelby County High School Sports Complex.


    Shelby would have had to defeat Lexington twice Monday to advance to the regional tournament.


    “I thought we showed a lot of heart,” Coach J.R. Wiley said. “Sometimes you just run out of innings. They had one more big hit than we did.”

  • We congratulate: Sheriff's office, KSP on huge drug bust

    That was quite a drug bust out near Southville this past week.

    The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and the Kentucky State Police task force that worked together to take a million dollars worth of marijuana and thousands of dollars in ill-gotten cash out of circulation in Shelby County is most commendable.

  • School's out for veteran teacher Jennings

    In 1966 Ernestine Jennings graduated from Shelby County High School, and now, for the second time, she's leaving the school.

    After teaching for 41 years, the first six at Shelbyville High School, and the rest at SCHS, Jennings, 61, has retired.

    "It just seemed like the right time," she said. "I've been thinking about it for a while, the first time in 2002. But then I just decided I wasn't quite ready."

  • WICHE: Bagworms are on the move, slowly

    I received a call the other day about what to do with a blue spruce covered in bagworms.

    The tree is apparently covered (and large), so hand-picking was not an option. The caller said the pest was rather large, too, so I had to recommend a systemic insecticide as the treatment.

    I prefer that we catch the bagworms earlier in the season so that we can take a biological approach but this is not always the case.
