  • Nice gesture stuns UK fans

    If you like John Calipari and his University of Kentucky men’s basketball coaching staff, you might like this story.

  • Great Blue Heron’s habitat...

    The accompanying photograph of a first year Great Blue Heron, with a fish in its mouth, was part of an observed episode that took place on a bitterly cold winter day.

    This bird was out in the middle of a deep hole of water on Guist Creek Lake in Shelby County. The lake was solidly frozen, except for this little patch of open water that the Great Blue was not allowing to freeze, due to his or her activities.

  • Webb earns spot in U.S. Girls...

  • Title may be at hand – or maybe...

    The Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion baseball team went unbeaten in its 32nd annual invitational tournament, but didn’t get to play for the championship – yet anyway.

    Post 37 won one game Thursday, one Friday and one Saturday, but Sunday’s final against Floyds Knobs (Ind.) was rained out. Shelbyville Coach Jim Wiley said the game would be played “somewhere, sometime if possible,” but both teams have busy schedules for the rest of the summer.

  • Cyclists ride out the storms

    WADDY – Andrew Boyd pumped his fist and let out a yell as he crossed the finish line Sunday afternoon in Waddy.

    Boyd was celebrating his victory in the men’s Category 3 road race portion of the first Shelby County Omnium.

    His enthusiasm was also a statement on the weekend cycling event. Although rain did wreak havoc with the scheduled 3-race Omnium – canceling Saturday morning’s criterium – most of the riders seemed to happily weather the storms. 

    “It was awesome,” Boyd said.
