  • Persimmon Ridge adds two holes

    Persimmon Ridge Golf Club, located in the northwest corner of Shelby County, will begin challenging golfers in a new way.

    As the course celebrates its 20th anniversary, it will also offer 20 holes.

    According to Lawren Just, president of Persimmon Ridge, construction to add the third nine holes began four years ago, but with the downturn in the real estate market, only two of the holes have been completed.

  • EARLIER: Rockets slip past...

    Seneca quarterback Jordan Bender had slipped away from Shelby County's  defenders all night.

    Branden Cresap had just passed to Edwin Thomas in the back of the end zone for a touchdown after escaping a collapsed pocket to put the Rockets (2-1) ahead.

    Now, holding a 31-30 lead with about 3 minutes to play, the Rockets' defense had to contain Bender, a wily, dual-threat playmaker.

    With just three plays, he marched the Redhawks (2-2) from their own 8-yard line out to the 35, and that’s where it finally happened.

  • Colors bleed through in rivalry

    Falling nearly smack-dab in the middle of the universities of Kentucky and Louisville means Shelby County can be a hostile environment, no matter who you root for.

    The Wildcats will play host to the Cardinals on Saturday with a noon kickoff at Commonwealth Stadium.

    So what does the rivalry mean to fans in the county?
