Shelbyville Super Bowl connection

Super Bowl connection in Shelbyville?

I heard last week that Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller bought a house in Shelbyville last summer, but due to a bevy of basketball games I wasn't able to find out for certain, or write a story on it. I hope to find out soon if that is indeed the case.

If so it'll probably be good news to Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley, who was proudly sporting his Steelers garb last week.

Schreiner's shot gives SCHS win at Anderson

Eric Schreiner's turn-around 3-pointer, in front of his team's bench, banked in just before the buzzer to give the Shelby County boys' basketball team a 55-54 victory at Anderson County on Wednesday night.


"I don't know how I hit it," the junior guard said afterward. "The ball slipped out of my hands, I was a little nervous, I got it, turned and threw it up."

"I thought it was going to hit the side of the backboard, but then I saw it go in...it was crazy."

SCHS girls win 1st game; boys win 3rd

Tuesday night was a big night for the Shelby County basketball teams.


The girls' team won its first game of the season, while the Rockets' boys' team won its third in a doubleheader at Eminence. 

In the girls' game Shelby led at the end of all four quarters, and by as many as eight points in the fourth period, but had to hold off the pesky Warriors for a 44-43 victory.

Is tonight the night for the SCHS girls?

Is this the night the Shelby County girls' basketball team gets its first victory of the season?

Let's hope so.

The Rockets (0-16 overall, 0-2 in the 30th District) play at Eminence (1-18, 0-2) at around 6:15 p.m. The Warriors have lost 17 straight since beating Evangel Christian 65-35 in their second game of the season. 

The two teams have similar stats.

Eminence, which is coming off a 72-13 loss at Carroll County, averages 26.2 points per game while allowing 54.7. Meanwhile Shelby County is averaging 24.9 and allowing 59.8.

The Rebels (16-4) have won five of their last six games, including a 55-44 win at Anderson County.

Wells led Collins with 20 points, while Cardwell tallied 10.

Immigration must be regulated -- but carefully

Immigration issues continue to be wildly polarizing elements in our public discourse.

We see the need to regulate the heretofore unregulated flow of immigrants across our borders, immigrants that some feel are an economic requirement -- they fill jobs that Americans don't want -- and others feel are a costly drain on our infrastructure.

The irony is that when it comes to cause and effect, almost all arguments about immigration are correct.

There needs to be control, but the workers also have value.

Both Rockets teams going to Eminence on Tuesday night

Shelby County's boys' and girls' basketball teams will both be playing at Eminence on Tuesday night.
