  • My Marine Corps Journal 1937-42, Part 16: 1939, On the cusp of World War II

    My last column constituted a diversion from the series based on my Marine Corps Journals. It described the harrowing experiences endured by a young marine who was crammed with other prisoners of war in the hold of a Japanese freighter. Despite this unimaginable stress, he survived and possessed the strength of character to live a full and productive life.

    Now I return to the routine barracks life in the Marine Corps in 1939, on the cusp of World War II.

  • Paving continues in Simpsonville

    The project to pave all city streets in Simpsonville, which went into full swing recently, is continuing this week.

    Officials weren’t sure last week which section of town would be done next, although at Thursday night’s meeting of the Simpsonville City Commission, Mayor Steve Eden said it’s likely that the area around the I-64 exchange would be next.

  • Anglin sentencing postponed

    A sentencing hearing for a former Shelby County Public Schools payroll manager charged with embezzling more than a half million dollars has been moved to October.

    Judge Charles Hickman set Oct. 21 as the new date for Benita Anglin due to her illness.

    Anglin had pleaded guilty to the theft in August, a week before her jury trial, a move that was not connected with any plea agreement. Instead, she made an open plea, in which the person charged pleads guilty to the charges and the judge will make the decision concerning the sentence.

    Both Collins and Shelby County girls’ golf teams posted stellar outings on the links in weekend tournaments.

  • Rockets limp off in road loss to Chargers

    Forget the injury bug, the Shelby County High School football team got mauled by an injury bear Friday in a 56-31 loss to Bullitt East.

    The game saw five Rockets starters – Tyler Drane, Drew Mack, Keshawn Catlett, Collin O’Hare, and Caleb Morehead – all leave the game with injuries. Catlett and Morehead’s were the most serious of the bunch, with both suffering head injuries and being taken away in ambulances.

  • Boyle hands Titans first loss of season

    Boyle County High School appears to be better than its record lets on.

    The Rebels (2-3) handed Collins (3-1) a 49-30 loss on Friday night, ending the Titans three-game winning streak.

    “Offensively, I felt like we weren’t as crisp as we have been this season,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We turned the ball over a bit, but Boyle County, year-in-and-year-out, is one of the top programs in the state. We like having our kids play against them.”
