  • Lady Bears slow out of gate in 51-37 win over Brown

    The Spencer County Lady Bears had a week off before returning to action Saturday afternoon in downtown Louisville against Brown. The gals looked a little rusty coming out of the gate, but were able to scrap out a 51-37 win.

    It was a sluggish beginning, but senior Kenisha Marshall was able to control the boards underneath, grabbing rebounds and scoring her team’s first eight points. Louisville Brown trailed 8-4 as the clock ticked down to end the quarter, but a Brown player heaved a 35-foot desperation shot that went in to keep the game tight at 8-7.

  • Mt. Eden responds to Shelby Co. house fire

    Mt. Eden Fire Chief Doug Herndon said that when crews responded to a house fire at 2709 Pea Ridge Road in Shelby County, they found the entire back portion of the two-story home completely engulfed in flames.

    Herndon said that no one was at home at the time of the blaze, which occurred last Friday.

    Because of the remote location, water had to be shuttled from nearly five miles away.

    “We salvaged some items. A few pictures and collector knives, but little else,” said Herndon. “It was almost a total loss.”

  • Citizen of the Year: Sharon Thomas

    Sharon Thomas is a volunteeroholic. Whenever she’s asked to give her time to a community event or activity, she always finds it hard to turn it down.

    “I made a resolution that in 2009 I was going to learn to say ‘no’. But after 12 days [in the New Year] I’m already volunteering to do things,” she said.

    Last year Thomas’ desire to help out led her to spend countless hours on community projects and also helped her to receive the title of Citizen of the Year from a local civic group.
