  • My Marine Corps Journal 1937-42, Part 19: Beautiful Bermuda and the Cruel Sea

    April 28, 1941

    At sea – two days East of Norfolk. Today at Tactical school Capt. Reeves [Wasp’s Commanding Officer] told us our mission, the first word we have had of our destination. We are to patrol the area between Bermuda and the Azores from latitude twenty to forty, taking a triangular course lasting fourteen days and then spending five days in Bermuda – and then doing the same thing all over again. We are to scout with our planes and report any German warships or suspected raiders in the area.

  • Rockets take region crown from North Oldham

    Both Shelby County and Collins high schools will advance their boys and girls’ cross country teams to the KHSAA Class 2A State Meet after qualifying in the regional meet Saturday.

    In the boys’ meet, Shelby finished first overall as a team, defeating North Oldham, the defending region and state champion, by three points to earn the Region 3 championship.

  • Shelby slays undefeated Dragons

    As the old saying goes, one play can help decide an entire football game.

    The Shelby County High School football team found out that was true when defensive lineman Drew Mack blocked an extra point in the first quarter of Friday’s 33-32 win over South Oldham.

  • Titans fly past Bearcats, 41-21

    The Collins High School football team honored its seniors’ final home game with a 41-21 defeat of Anderson County on Friday night.

    And one of the Titans’ seniors came up huge in the win.

    Payton Hawk hauled in five balls for 130 yards and three scores to give Collins (6-4) its sixth win of the year.

    “It feels great [to catch three touchdowns on senior night],” Hawk said. “It feels amazing. I think we did a great job of executing that our game plan tonight.”

  • Morehead hit the ground running

    In the Shelby County Rockets’ triple-option offense every runner is a threat to break away, aiding in the misdirection caused from fake handoffs.

    But none have been more valuable than the fullback, or ‘b-back’ whose job it is to pick up the tough yards between the tackles.

    With the graduation of Malik Manica, junior Caleb Morehead has seized that role this season, all while leading the team in rushing, despite having missed one game due to injury.

  • Collins faces familiar foe in Western

    To borrow a phrase from the famous Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again” for the Collins Titans as the 2016 KHSAA Class 4A playoffs get underway this week.

    Collins will travel to Western High School to face the Warriors Friday.

    “They are really big and loaded with athletes all over the field,” Collins quarterback J.R. Lucas said. “They always are. It’ll be a good game, like the times we’ve played them before.”

  • Webb listed for second transplant

    After nearly eight months of traveling, pleading, struggling and running the gamut of emotions, Shelby County resident Bobby Webb has finally received the news he’s so long awaited.

    Webb has officially been added to the lung transplant list for a second time.

    Webb has Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic and life-threatening disease that changes how his body makes mucus and sweat. The disease is often a death sentence without a lung transplant, which Webb first received in 2011.
