  • Friends, former teammates now adversaries on the field

    Very rarely has the ‘house divided’ motto been taken so literally, but in the house Alex Matthews and Branden Cresap reside in together, it may become an ironic mantra.

    Matthews returned to Shelby County High School to be the new defensive coordinator for his alma mater, while Cresap recently joined the Collins High School football staff, where he graduated from in 2011, as a quarterbacks’ coach.

  • Back where it all began

    With the beginning of each new sports season coaches and players come and go and new faces are the norm.

    But that’s not the case with the Shelby County girls’ golf team, which will have a very familiar face and former champion leading the squad.

  • Shelbyville kicks off ideal horse show

    A brief downpour passed through town just hours before the 28th Shelbyville Horse Show kicked off Wednesday night, leaving behind ominous cloud coverage and an uncertain forecast for the rest of the evening.

    But despite the foreshadowing, an almost perfect scene set the stage at the Shelby County Fairgrounds and the weather remained ideal through the evening.

    But the fear of what could have been may have kept many at home on opening night, which usually draws a hefty crowd due to the reception with free food.

  • An emotional return

    “I’m a very emotional mom this morning,” said Ginny Sullivan as she dropped off her daughter Karsyn for her first day of elementary school at Painted Stone. 

    As many parents know, the first day of school is always a difficult one, no matter the age.  For children, it’s a day of a new start: new class, new teacher, new friends, new experiences.
