  • Bringing the grocery store to your home

    Tom Abbott had a cool idea, although it left his pocket lighter.

    The Ethington Building Supply lumber salesman wanted to find a way for farmers to cooperate, instead of compete.

    That’s where the Friendly Farm Fridge comes in.

    Abbott, with the help of daughter Graycee Pratt, will run a mobile grocery from a trailer that you’ll see parked around the county soon.

    Its first location will be the Rural King parking lot on weekends. Hours and locations may vary, Abbott said, as a customer base grows.

    Wrightson, a Shelby County High School resource teacher, will miss “her kids” and colleagues when she retires June 20 after 27 years teaching, 26 at SCHS.

    But retirement is a relative word.

    Wrightson works with gifted and talented students, an area that most people misunderstand, she said.

  • Cowboy up

     The Rockets have adopted the mantra of their ace pitcher.

    After Caleb Collins secured the Rockets’ spot in the 8th Region Tournament in a win over Spencer County last week he referred to himself as a cowboy, citing the tough-as-nails approach he takes on the mound.

    And now the Shelby County baseball team has exploded into the 8th Region championship game.

    Walton-Verona struck first in the top of the third inning, scoring three runs to take an early lead.

  • ‘Today, we must face the realization that we are no longer seniors’

     When students from Shelby County and Collins High Schools entered on Saturday, they were seniors at their respective schools.

    When they left, they no longer were.

    Saturday students at Shelby County’s two high schools put the final punctuation on one chapter of their lives and laid the first drop of ink on the next ones.
