    There will be some familiar faces this weekend at the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball tournament at Collins High School.

  • Park hit hard by flooding

    From baseball to golf to fishing and camping, the recent rains have wreaked havoc with the activities and conditions at Clear Creek Park.

    With rising water over the dam at Lake Shelby access to fishing and camping grounds is closed.

    Young, who will be a junior at Shelby County High School this fall, shot a 72-77–149 to edge Kie Purdom of Lexington who shot a 77-73-150. Young’s short game on the greens helped her to hold off a furious comeback from Purdom.
