  • Memorial fund created for Mount Eden man who died in accident

    TAYLORSVILLE -- A memorial fund has been established to assist the family of Jason Thompson, a Mount Eden resident who was killed Aug. 14 in a 3-vehicle accident on KY 55 in Spencer County.

    Thompson, 35, had his two children – 10-year-old Brooke Thompson and 8-year-old Jacob Thompson – in the car at the time of the accident, and both children sustained multiple injuries. They are Taylorsville Elementary School students.

  • Young Titans grow up a bit against Bearcats

    Although the Collins volleyball team has experienced some growing pains this season, the Titans have also made gains.

    That was apparent Tuesday night, when host Collins outlasted Anderson County in four sets, 25-18, 25-18, 14-25, 25-16, in a 30th District match.

  • Rockets’ teams bigger and perhaps faster

    The Shelby County cross-country teams are growing, and second-year coach Andrew Danner couldn’t be happier to have 40 runners on his roster.

    “We’re pretty excited with the numbers we’ve got; that was our big goal this year,” Danner said.

    Both burgeoning teams will open their season Saturday in St. Xavier’s Tiger Run at Louisville Champions Park. The boys’ varsity race begins at 9:30 a.m., with the girls’ race following at 10:15 a.m.

    Here is a look at both squads.


  • SCHS boys’ soccer team wins on Orange’s goal

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team got some last minute heroics to win its second consecutive match – Stuart Orange’s goal with just less than 15 seconds remaining gave the Rockets a 3-2 victory over host Carroll County on Tuesday night.

    “It was one of those games where you walk away with the win, but leave feeling as if the other team deserves a victory just as much as you do,” Shelby County Coach Tony Wood said.

    The Rockets built a 2-0 lead in the first half.

  • Rockets ready to blast off

    Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley had an electronic clock installed last spring in his team’s locker room.

    “When we put it in, it said we had a hundred and six days until LaRue County,” Shipley said Wednesday night. “I looked at it today, and there were just two days and two hours and something until kickoff. I remember when we put it up – it was May – I said, we have a long time to go.”

    The wait is over.

  • Mayton makes his shots to lead Titans

    Collins senior Turner Mayton has had some memorable rounds – and some rounds he would like to forget – at Weissinger Hills Golf Course.

    It’s the course where he played his first varsity match and earned his first varsity letter, but it’s also one that has caused him some problems, especially the early holes.

    “It has been both good and bad, but today [Tuesday] was a good way to go out,” Mayton said.

  • Big clash for the Titans

    Some 15 years ago, when Jerry Lucas was a young head coach at Western Hills, Boyle County, a straight shot down U.S. 137 for him then, was barely a blip on the state’s high school football radar. 

    Now the Rebels are one of the premier programs in the state.

  • UNDERWOOD: How do you sustain in business and in life?

    Sustainability is a fairly new concept in business and life. Until recently, most of us assumed that life and business would always proceed as usual. Concerns about the future of our country and the world’s economic condition, the lack of predictability in the stock market, making a decent wage, retirement, and the future of our environmental sustainability were subjects for science fiction books.
