  • Gaither named new Collins boys...

    Chris Gaither has been hired as Collins' second boys' basketball coach.

    Gaither, 27, previously assisted Mike Clark at Shelby County for two seasons before working under Curtis Turley this past season for the Titans' inaugural campaign. 

    "Mr. Gaither has been an assistant in our program for three years under very successful mentors," Collins Principal Anthony Hatchell said Thursday.

  • Brown prepares for Nationwide...

    Brandon Brown is hoping familiarity serves him well this week.

    The Shelbyville native, who is in his fourth season of playing on the NGA/Hooters Pro Golf Tour, will take a step up this week when he plays in the Nationwide Tour’s Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open at Crestview Country Club.

  • Lexingtonians dominate race

    The oldest triathlon in Kentucky returned Saturday.

    And young, and old, were there to help celebrate it.

    The Guist Creek Olympic Triathlon (formerly the Shelbyville Triathlon) went off without a hitch and under nearly perfect weather conditions (high 60s, low 70s at the 8:30 a.m. start).

    “Saturday was a gorgeous day for a race,” Race Director Jeremiah Heath said. “Guist Creek Marina is a perfect location to host this, and we are very thankful we were able to be at that location.

  • Post 37 wins 1st 4 ‘just getting...

    The Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team is off to a solid start.

    The team won three times over the weekend to improve to 4-0 thus far.

    “We’ve played pretty well in all of them,” Coach Jim Wiley said. “We’re getting started. We’ve got a couple more players to pick up for our team. We’re still trying to fill out our roster.”

  • Plenty of Red in town

    The temperatures were red hot, and so were some of the faces.

    But despite the heat inside Floral Hall at the Shelby County Fairgrounds, the enthusiasm was just as feverish Thursday evening for the University of Louisville’s Cardinal Caravan, the annual meet-and-greet tour in which UofL coaches, athletes and athletic staff members visit with fans.

  • Pitino's new brand

    Rick Pitino seems to have become a big fan of branding.

    Last October the University of Louisville men’s basketball coach said that his team’s 2010-11 campaign was going to be a “bridge season.”

    This past Thursday night, Pitino rolled out his team’s new selling point.

  • Highlights of Pitino at Cardinal...

    Here are some of the highlights of University of Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino's appearance at the Cardinal Caravan stop at the Shelby County Fairgrounds this past Thursday:

  • Odd little Red-Cockaded...

    The federally endangered Red-Cockaded Woodpecker became extinct in Kentucky in approximately 2001.
    The accompanying photograph was taken in Pulaski County in Eastern Kentucky, where  a few nesting colonies remained alive.
    However, because of the severe droughts in the late 1990s, which caused many of the Short-Leaf Pine Trees to die, an infestation of the Southern Pine beetle that further devastated the pine trees, plus probably too much logging in the Daniel Boone National Forest, the Red-Cockaded Woodpecker had lost its habitat.

  • LauBach to be part of triathlon...

    Saturday morning will be a re-birth of sorts for Alicia “Al” LauBach.

    That’s because it will be the first triathlon for the 40-year-old Shelbyvillian since she gave birth to the first of her three children.

    She’ll be one of the participants in the Guist Creek Olympic Triathlon, as the oldest swimming, biking and running event in Kentucky returns after a brief hiatus, and a name change (it was formerly known as the Shelbyville Triathlon). It begins at 8:30 a.m. at Guist Creek Marina.

  • Collins’ job attractive

    As of Thursday afternoon the opening for a new boys’ basketball coach at Collins had yet to be posted on the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s website under “job opportunities.”

    But when looking at the other six openings – Covington Catholic, Greenup County, Harlan, Trimble County, Whitesville Trinity and Whitley County – for head boys’ basketball coach, the Titans’ job has to be considered the most attractive (although CovCath is probably a close second).
