  • County judge lifts burn ban

    After more than two months, Shelby County residents finally have the go ahead to burn debris outside.

    On Friday, Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger issued an executive order to lift the burn ban, which had been in effect throughout the county since September 13.

    Rothenburger cites lower temperatures and higher humidity levels coupled with adequate rainfall as determining factors in this decision, because these things have lessened the probability of large uncontrollable fires.

    After months of decision-making and planning, the Shelby County School Board got it right with the way it handled the dedication of the new Mike Casey Gymnasium.

    Despite a few noticeable differences, there really isn’t much of a contrast between the Collins and Shelby County high school swim teams.

    “The warmups, swimsuits and swim caps are different colors, but other than that, I treat it as one team. I don’t differentiate between one or the other,” said Jean Paul LaVertu, the coach of both teams.
