Shelbyville’s Antonita Slaughter scored six points to help the third-ranked University of Louisville women’s basketball team remain unbeaten at home with a 73-58 American Athletic Conference victory over Rutgers at the KFC Yum! Center on Sunday.

The Shelby County boys’ basketball team is going back to the 8th Region Tournament.
The Rockets earned that right with a 77-57 rout of Spencer County on Wednesday night in a 30th District Tournament semifinal at Mike Casey Gymnasium.
Sophomore forward James Gordon scored a game-high 25 points, and junior forward Kemar Mason added 18 in reserve as Shelby County secured its first berth in the regional tournament since the 2009-10 season, right before the high school split.
When Shelbyville got its chunk of $80,000 in federal funds that went to nine Kentucky communities for historic preservation in 2013, officials used the $8,750 to tackle a project that is now near fruition – cataloging hundreds of historical structures and making that information available to the public.
Shelbyville Historic District Coordinator Fred Rogers said the grant, administered by the Kentucky Heritage Council through the U.S. National Parks Service, is a 60-40 match, with the city of Shelbyville contributing $5,833, for a total of $14,583.
The Triple S Planning Commission is embroiled in a lawsuit with Bagdad Lumber Sawmill & Kiln about the company’s ability to operate as is at its location at 2932 Christiansburg Road in Bagdad.
His mill is located on a parcel zoned Agriculture, which Triple S officials say isn’t appropriate for this business.
But owner/operator Ron Harris claims in his suit that he had approval before opening the doors to his company. The courts will decide, and while they are, Harris is able to continue work while the courts decided the lawsuit.
