  • A rocking Christmas

    Though it’s been two decades since it was home to a radio station, the building at 416 Main Street, now Crahan’s Wealth Management, is once again pumping out music and this time the tunes are accompanied by their own festive light production.

    Each night during the holiday season from 5 until 10 p.m., passerbys who tune into 88.5 FM can hear the tunes of the season with a synchronized light show dancing on the former WCND building. 

  • Shelby drops opener to Mercer

    The Shelby County High School boys’ basketball team could not overcome a rough first quarter in which the Rockets scored just nine points en route to a 78-59 loss to Mercer County at home on Monday.

    SCHS (0-1) outscored the Titans (1-0) in both the second and third quarters, but the 26-9 deficit after the first was just too much to overcome.

  • Collins set to take on familiar face Friday

    The Collins boys’ basketball team will take the floor for the first time this season on Friday when Bullitt East visits the school, but the Titans are likely to be familiar with the Chargers.

    The Chargers’ new head coach, Jason Couch, was coach of Shelby County High School for four seasons from 2012-15, so both squads should have a good idea of what to expect in the opener.

  • Cats, Cards live up to hype

    The matchup between the universities of Kentucky and Louisville was one of the most exciting and unexpected games I have witnessed all season at any level of football, and I had absolutely no dog in the fight.

    Over the weekend, myself and roughly 50 strangers sat huddled in the lobby of a Chicago hotel, keeping an eye on the multiple television screens showing Saturday’s Michigan-Ohio State game.

  • Farming for Christmas

    On Thanksgiving Day, Ron Stella will be camped out on the Christmas tree farm he operates with Vivek Sarin, waiting for the first customers of the season.

    Well, not exactly the first, as the very first tree cut from the Shelby Christmas Tree Farm was taken down on Monday and will grace the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion in Frankfort, said Sarin.

  • Basic plan in place for holiday traffic at mall

    Simpsonville and The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass are prepped and ready to handle increased traffic flow starting today and throughout the holiday season.

    The pattern employed in the past has been pretty basic said Chip Minnis Simpsonville Police chief.

  • Learning is child’s play

    Thanks to a group of volunteers, dozens of children that attend the Dorman Preschool Center can now experience hands on learning outdoors.

    Laurie Cottrell, executive director of the Dorman Center, said she is pleased with the new combination outdoor classroom/playground.

    “In the last two or three years, the Dorman Preschool has been moving toward the Reggio Emilia [outdoor learning] approach and with that, also, a lot of nature is brought into the classroom and a lot of time being spent outdoors,” she said.
