  • Engagement: Judd-Davis

    Joey and Anissa Judd of Shelbyville and Brian and Cynthia Snyder of Japan announce the engagement of their daughter, Mara Elizabeth Judd of Warren, Ohio, to Michael William Davis of Canfield, Ohio. He is the son of William and Kathleen Davis of Girard, Ohio.

    A small, intimate ceremony and reception will be 1:30 p.m. in Boardman, Ohio.

  • Titans quietly turn back Rebels

    Coming off an emotional victory Friday night, the Collins boys’ basketball was ripe for a letdown Saturday.

    However it didn’t happen.

    The Titans topped visiting Casey County, 61-52, Saturday, one night after beating Shelby County.

    “We were happy to get a win,” Collins Coach Curtis Turley said. “The atmosphere was different. It was a smaller crowd than the night before. We didn’t have the pep in our step we would’ve liked, but we did some good things and played well enough to win.”

  • Second-period swoon foils Titans

    The Collins girls’ basketball team beat Anderson County for three quarters Saturday afternoon.

    But the Bearcats used a big second period to beat the Titans, 56-49, in a game that likely will determine the No. 1 seeding in the 30th District tournament.

  • Rockets blast off better but fizzle

    The start was better for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Monday night, but the result was the same.

    The Rockets began their game against Owen County better than their previous game – and their previous meeting with the Rebels – however they still fell, 69-16, at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

  • Chargers top Titans

    Host Bullitt East outscored Collins 7-4 in the fourth quarter for a 30-28 victory Monday night.

    The two teams were tied at 8-all at the end of the first quarter and 16-all at halftime before the Titans (9-8) outscored the Chargers 8-7 in the third period to take a 24-23 lead.

    However they couldn’t hang on against Bullitt East (14-5), arguably the second-best team in the 6th Region. 

  • Titans’ ‘best start’ overpowers Rockets

    There are good starts, there are great starts, and then there is the kind of start that the Collins girls’ basketball team had Friday night.

    The Titans scored the first 30 points of the game, while holding host Shelby County without a field goal for the first half, on their way to a 55-10 victory at Mike Casey Gymnasium in the third meeting between the two teams this season.

  • Titans use their reserves to run past Rockets

    Some people call them reserves.

    Curtis Turley calls them reinforcements.

    In practice they call them the “black” team.

    Friday night they were one of the big reasons for Collins’ 76-57 victory over archrival Shelby County at Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Three members of the Titans’ second unit, plus two starters, keyed a big second quarter and eventually their team’s third victory of the season over the Rockets.

  • Better eating for students

    With the signing by President Barack Obama of the new school nutrition standards last month, school districts across the nation are expressing concerns about extra costs and changes to menus.

    But in Shelby County school officials say they have tried to stay well ahead of the curve, maybe even enough to make Michelle Obama proud.

  • School test scores show improvement

    The Shelby County Board of Education jumped into the first meeting of the new year with a very aggressive agenda.

    After nominating Sam Hinkle as the new board chair and Doug Butler as the vice chair, the board heard four staff reports, got its first look at the next budget and honored several district employees.

    Leading the way on the staff reports were big improvements in On Demand Writing test scores and Title III Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAO or improvement with Limited English Proficiency, LEP, students).
