  • Brown bags 1st victory of season

    Making himself right at home on the course at Chattahoochee Country Club, Brandon Brown set a sizzling pace, then cruised to his first victory of the season.
    The Shelbyville professional golfer built a 7-shot lead – thanks in large part to a course-record tying 62 in the first round - in the first two days, then cruised to the win in the NGA Pro Tour’s Milton Martin Honda Classic this past weekend in Gainesville, Ga.
    The victory was his eighth – which ranks third all-time – on the NGA Tour, and his first this season in three events.

  • Cerulean Warbler is very un-...

    If the Cerulean Warbler is sitting in a very tall tree, which is where they are usually seen, and the background is a blue sky, then it will be very difficult to see this bird because its coloration is sky blue above with an even brighter blue on the crown.

    However, it does have white below and a dark blue narrow breast band and side streaks on a somewhat big belly.

  • Rocket Launch set for Saturday

    The first-ever Rocket Launch, an event designed to raise funds and promote Shelby County High School athletics, will take place Saturday.

    The Launch will launch at 11 a.m. and finish around 4 p.m. at SCHS’s Robert Doyle Stadium.

  • Brown cards another Top 5 NGA...

    Brandon Brown’s comeback continued with another top-five finish.
    Brown, a professional golfer from Shelbyville, tied for third place in the NGA Pro Tour’s Three Ridges Golf Club Classic, which finished up this past Saturday at Three Ridges Golf Club in Knoxville, Tenn. Brown, who missed the first eight NGA tournaments of the season after having eye surgery, tied for fifth in his first event of the season, the inaugural Bluegrass Open at Shelbyville Country Club.  

  • Canada Warbler finds homes in...

    Don’t let the name influence you into believing that the Canada Warbler only hangs out in Canada. Even though it was first discovered in Canada, it is certainly not confined there.

    This warbler has been found breeding here in Kentucky in Harlan County in the higher elevations of Black Mountain as well as Bell and Letcher counties. However, the State Breeding Status is of Special Concern.

    It has been known to arrive as early as April 19, but the majority arrive in early May and start leaving in mid-September, with the latest date seen being Oct. 12.

  • Shelbyville Country Club trying...

    After last Wednesday’s storms blew through the county overnight, many homes were left without power and property damage littered the county.

    But no location was hit harder than Shelblyville Country Club, which was in the midst of hosting its first professional event.

    “We had more than thirty trees go down, including two of the largest ones on the course,” said Greg Gibson, the club’s director of golf.

    And much of it he saw first hand.

  • 8th Region Baseball Tournament...

    After a 19-hour delay, it looked Wednesday like the Collins High School baseball team might have picked up Roy Hobbs lightning emblazoned Wonderboy bat from the movie “The Natural.”

    After lightning chased the teams from the field in the 8th Region Tournament at Henry County Tuesday, the Titans came out swinging in to the top of the sixth inning Wednesday trailing Simon Kenton 5-1.

    Senior Zach Wiley roped a shot to fence in center for a double and moved to third on Mason Jeffries’ single.

  • 8th Region Baseball Tournament...

    NEW CASTLE – Zach Wiley was hitting spots with his fastball, keeping hitters off-balance with a hard slider and letting a superb defense make plays behind him.

    Wiley pitched a one-hit shutout Monday night for his Collins Titans, who beat North Oldham 4-0 in the final first round game of the Region 8 tournament at Henry County.

  • Wolfe holds on for first NGA...

    By Shane Stovall


    Mother Nature nearly threw a knockout-punch at the Bluegrass Open Golf Tournament at the Shelbyville Country Club but thanks to volunteers, golfers and fans won the fight.

    After last week’s storms downed several dozen trees and structures, the course looked more like a war-torn ghost town littered with debris than it did a lush collection of pristine fairways and smooth greens.
