    Hayley Powell’s grand slam helped the Shelby County softball team end its regular season on a high note.

    The Rockets (8-24), who lost, 11-0, at Bullitt East in six innings Thursday, bounced back to beat host Montgomery County, 6-3, Friday night, thanks in large part to Powell’s 2-out, fifth-inning slam in their regular-season finale.

  • This bird is a tenant you will...

    Everyone loves the Purple Martin and rightfully so.

    By the time the Europeans arrived in this great country, the Native Americans had already recognized the benefits of  having these birds as neighbors. The fact that Purple Martins, because of their aerial feeding habits, helped rid an area of pesky mosquitoes, flies and gnats was well known.

    The native tribes were already installing the first man-made bird houses by growing gourds, drying them out, cutting the proper entrance holes in each gourd and placing them high in dead trees or on tall poles.

  • Shipley hopes to keep his event...

    The aspect of the 300-meter hurdles race that Zach Shipley relishes the most isn’t the start or the finish.

    “Warm-ups are pretty much my favorite part,” Shipley, a Shelby County junior, said Wednesday. “I love checking in. They [the other hurdlers] always look at me because I’m the shortest person there. I say, ‘That’s me,’ and I’ll just walk out. Everybody’s head will just turn because they don’t picture me [being fast].”
