  • An infrequent visitor, Roseate...

    Records of Roseate Spoonbills seen in Kentucky are on July 29 and Aug. 18, 1989, at Honker’s Lake at the Land-Between-the-Lakes in Trigg County, on Sept. 13-17, 1994, also at LBL, and on Sept. 4 and Sept. 8, 2013 on Guist Creek Lake in Shelby County. They are normally found on both coasts of Florida, the Louisiana and Texas Coasts, Mexico and Central American Coasts and they obviously wander north, occasionally.

  • Shelby girls picked to win region

    Big, experienced and, above all else, talented the Shelby County girls basketball team has emerged as the favorite to win the 8th Region this year.

    The Rockets have been voted as the region’s best team in every preseason poll conducted this year.

    “We could have a very special team,” first year Shelby County coach Jason Holland said. “There is a very good mix of talent and most important, experience on this team.”

  • Collins lookibng to improve

    Over the past couple seasons it’s been one improving step at a time for the Collins High School girls’ basketball program.

    With three starters back, a corps of young talent and a little more depth, this may be the year that sees the Titans take a big step in competing in the 8th Region after finishing 7-18 last year.

  • Ring-billed Gull is a consistent...

    The Ring-billed Gull is a fairly common visitor during migration throughout Kentucky. I usually see them in Shelby County during the spring migration on Guist Creek Lake, the Kroger parking lot, the Walmart parking lot, and in 2013 saw about 50 of them sitting in a pasture on Gallrein Farms, apparently resting possibly after a long migratory flight.

  • Thomas signs with Memphis

     

    Shelby County senior Madison Thomas has never been one to back down from a challenge and she did not change that in her choice of a college.

    Thomas, the reigning Kentucky State High School golf champion, signed last week to play at the University of Memphis.

    “It will be a lot different going to a big city from Shelby County,” Thomas said. “It will be good for me. I will be able to get out of my comfort zone.  I think it will be good for me.”

  • Shelby football will have...

    A play here and a play there and the Shelby County Rockets’ football team could easily have been 8-3 instead of 3-8 in a season that was sometimes maddening for the players and staff.

    “That was the most frustrating thing for the players and the coaches,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “We had our chances and fell just short. We would get ourselves in the right spot, and then it just didn’t seem to work out.”

  • Collins looking to improve next...

     

    After fighting through the first losing season in school history with a 5-7 record the Collins High School football team could be poised for a big rebound next fall.

  • Rockets beat Beechwood in...

    With three top quality interior players back, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team’s new coach got a good look at what his team is capable of in a preseason scrimmage against Beechwood at the Scott County Hoopfest ????WHEN????.

    Hoping to keep the Rockets’ trio of six-footers in Mackenzie and Savannnah Raizor and Justus Martin in check, Beechwood employed a tight zone defense through much of the scrimmage.

  • Redhead duck’s population is...

    Just like humans, each bird species, has its own uniqueness. For instance, the Redhead is considered to be a diver type duck, yet quite frequently feeds in shallow water where it displays feeding techniques of the dabbler ducks by tipping up and feeding in such a way, that only their rear end is visible.
