  • Sanner ties for low round of the day

    On a day when it was easier to shoot under the temperature than under par, Brandon Sanner proved to be one of the two coolest customers on the golf course.

    Sanner shot a 3-over-par 75 Wednesday, which tied him for the lowest round of the day among all age groups, in the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour’s second-to-last stop of the season at the Shelbyville Country Club.

  • Pearcy wins again

    Daniel Pearcy is a winner again.

    The 13-year-old Shelbyville native posted his second victory of the season in the Ralph Firman Racing Cars Indy Karting Series this past weekend.

    Pearcy took the lead with three laps to go, then won the Junior Supercan race in the 20th annual Lebanon (Ind.) Grand Prix.

    Pearcy's victory — he previously won the Lafayette Square Mall Grand Prix in Indianapolis on June 19 — solidified his points lead and came on the temporary course set up in the parking lot at Lebanon High School.

  • Stone a ‘top sleeper’

    It’s been a big summer for some area basketball players.

    Brian Stone, a rising 6-foot-7 senior at Collins, was recently named one of the “top sleepers” – and was also a second team all-star - at the 32nd Annual High Potential/Blue Chip Camp’s first session (June 26-30) at Georgetown College.

    Then last week Stone helped his 17-year-old AAU team (the BA Hoyas) to a second-place finish in the Eddie Ford HoopFest at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

  • Shelby finishes fourth at East State tourney

    The Shelby County 13-year-old Babe Ruth All-Stars had a solid showing in the 2011 East Kentucky State Tournament.

    They split their first two games over the weekend before blasting Bath County 17-6 Tuesday night at Pulaski County High School in Somerset. They were eliminated later that night, though, with a 6-4 loss to Southeastern - the same team that beat them in their first game.

    "We came up just a little short," said Coach Doug Likes, whose team finished in fourth-place.

  • Farm benefit will raise money for local charities

    Gallrein Farms will have its first Family Fun Fundraiser Saturday, and Randie Gallrein said she’s hoping folks will look past the heat and come out to support several local charities.

    “Everybody just loves the stuff we do in the fall, and families come out and have a great time, so we thought we’d give them another chance to come out and have fun on the farm,” she said. “Hopefully the weather won’t scare them off.”

    This time, though, the Gallrein family decided to give back while having fun on the farm.
