  • Shelby dominates Fairdale for first win

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team picked up its first victory of the season in a dominating fashion over Fairdale, 67-35.

    Despite picking up the win by an impressive 32-point margin, head coach Jason Holland saw improvements that need to be made in the Rockets’ (1-0) play.

    SCHS committed 19 turnovers in the win, but Holland chalks some of the mistakes up to an alignment error and some eagerness during the first game of the year.

    Shelbyville Mayor Tom Hardesty said the discussion is in response to the county considering Sunday sales for alcohol.

  • Let it dough

    Cookies are as much a part of the Christmas season as the turkey is to a holiday feast.

    A warm cookie fresh from the oven, baked in a kitchen fragrant with its scent, puts the icing on the holiday experience.

    Whether your favorite is as traditional as the ever-popular chocolate chip, as old fashioned as a molasses cookie, or even an old stand-by like the oatmeal cookie, cookies are the delight of children and adults alike.

    They add a bit of cheer to holiday gatherings and are a festive touch, whether enjoyed at the office or just around the house.

  • 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.
