  • Veteran group will lead Shelby

    Shelby County baseball may be relatively young with just eight players combined listed as seniors and juniors, but the youth movement will be big for the Rockets this season.

    The flexibility of many of the Rockets players should be a major strength in overcoming the other teams in the 30th District and 8th Region.

    University of Tennessee signee and senior Matthew Ellis will appear in a variety of roles defensively, both behind the plate and on the mound to lead SCHS.

  • Titans look to reload behind pitching staff

    After returning just 30 innings of pitching experience in 2017, Collins will look to revamp its team this season by bringing 134 innings back from last season’s team that finished as a district runner-up.

    Collins’ rotation will be a major factor in how the season unfolds for the Titans, who finished last season with a first-round defeat of rival Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament and a 8th Region Tournament win over Carroll County before bowing out to Simon Kenton in the Region semifinals.

  • Ward earns All-American status

    Shelbyville-native Mimi Ward has spent the last six years perfecting her swimming and biking techniques, and it has paid off, as she finished second in the female 55-59 age bracket and has earned All-American status through USA Triathlon for the second time as a result.

    The aquabike event combines two legs of the traditional triathlon race in swimming and biking, while cutting out the running portion of the event.

    Ward says that her personality and swimming background encouraged her to get started in competition.

    We then proceeded to Newton, also in Cambridgeshire, England, to visit Winifred (Win) Peacock, my father Reginald Bareham’s sister.

    I formed an immediate liking for Win with whom I felt a feeling of common interest. She was moat gracious, appeared to be in good health and spirits. She and her husband Cliff Peacock showed me around Newton, introducing me to all the relatives within that area.

  • Blanketed in love

    With winter winds still nipping at the backs of Shelby’s homeless; the gift of a warm blanket could mean the difference between life and death when you’re sleeping under a bridge or in a vacant house.

    When 20 students from Corpus Christi Classical Academy made the rounds of three different charitable organizations with hundreds of blankets to donate for the use of those in the county’s shelters, their generosity warmed the hearts of those who help to clothe and house the homeless.

  • Tractors on the move

    A city slicker may have thought Friday was the beginning of harvest season, with a handful of tractors rolling down U.S. 60 around Collins High School in the morning and afternoon.

    But these tractors weren’t moving crops, instead they were helping plant seeds for the future with the school’s Drive a Tractor to School Day.

    “I drove from Finchville – I got up to 22 miles an hour,” said Colby Eades with a grin, as he patted the 1968 John Deere tractor he had just pulled into the school’s parking lot.

  • SIMPSONVILLE CITY COMMISSION: Tourism report highlights past, future projects

    The Simpsonville City Commission no doubt left Monday’s regular meeting hungry after a presentation from ShelbyKY Tourism Commission & Visitors Bureau explained the state’s Year of Food plan for 2018.

    ShelbyKY Tourism Executive Director Katie Fussenegger gave a brief overview of projects tourism was involved in last year and what they can expect in 2108.

  • Woman and pet bitten in dog attack

    A woman and her small pet dog were attacked by two pit bulls during a Saturday afternoon walk.

    The attack left the woman injured and her pet later had to be put down as a result of injuries.

    Shelbyville Police said that at 2:23 p.m. they received a call of a dog attack at 829 Main Street in front of Citizens Union Bank. When officers arrived, they found that the woman and her small dog had both been attacked.

  • Oldham holds off Collins at region

    When Jacob Feltner’s three cut Oldham County’s lead to 61-57 with less than two minutes remaining in the Titan’s 8th Region Tournament opener Thursday, it looked like the Collins boys’ basketball team had another rally left.

    Instead, it was Oldham County and guard Jackson Gibson that took charge down the stretch in the 68-61 Oldham win. The Colonels’ victory was payback for last season when the Titans knocked Oldham out in the 8th Region opener on the way to the title and a birth in the Sweet 16.

  • Titans track looks to continue growth

    With a defending state champion on roster, Collins will look to continue to build and grow its track and field team heading into the 2018 season.

    Nathan Jacobs, the reigning state discus champion, will pace the Titans this spring and should be a top point earner for the team.

    “We are excited about the outdoor season,” Titans coach George Sanderlin said. “We have already broken several school indoor records in the throws and jumps and look to do the same outdoors. We have two junior boys who should continue to make a mark.”
