  • Titans look to improve against the Rebels

    With the Class 4A, District 3 title already wrapped up, Collins football coach Jerry Lucas has one major goal for his team tonight.

    No, it’s not to score 100 points against Atherton – although given the fact that earlier this season the Rebels lost by 40 points to Waggener, who lost by 55 points to the Titans last Friday night, it may not be too far-fetched.

    Lucas’ goal for his team in its district finale is to continue to improve.

    State Rep. Brad Montell (R-Shelbyville) is taking dead aim at employers who hire people in the country illegally.

  • Democratic Bus Tour comes to Shelby Thursday

    Instead of stumping to a crowd of people strolling through Veterans’ Park on a lazy autumn afternoon, a bus full of Democratic candidates seeking statewide office ended up making their platform in the basement of the Shelby County Courthouse, out of the rain and gusting wind.

    A small crowd of about 25 people crowded into the hallway outside the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday afternoon, and most of them were candidates and courthouse employees. Maybe half of them were from the public, including Democratic magistrates Tony Carriss and Hubie Pollett.
