  • Titans settle some old scores

    Last week Collins softball coach Jim Axline took his team into the classroom for practice.

  • Cervantes commits to EKU

    Before Chris Cervantes began his senior year at Collins, all he hoped for, he said, was a baseball grant-in-aid, one from any small college would do.

  • Titans complete district sweep

    The Collins baseball team had one of its best games of the season in one of its biggest games of the season.

    The host Titans pounded out 12 hits, got a solid effort from Austin Perry on the mound and played almost error-free in the field in their 9-2 victory over cross-town rival Shelby County in a key 30th District game Thursday night.

    “I felt like we had a complete game,” Collins Coach Roy Bailey said. “Pitching, defense, hitting, I felt like we did a little bit of everything and put it all together.”

  • Woman found dead camping at Lake Shelby

    A Simpsonville woman was discovered dead Saturday morning while camping at Lake Shelby, officials said.

    Pamela Chesser, 62, apparently died of a heart attack, said Shelby County Deputy Coroner Janet Morris.

    Shelby County Parks Board Chairman Hubie Pollett expressed his sympathies.

    “She apparently had some medical problems; it’s a sad situation for her family,” he said.

    Chesser was found at about 8:30 in a camper by her friend, Robert Martin, with whom she had gone camping.

    This article is for readers who have a loved one who refuses to follow doctor’s orders for recovery from a medical problem. It assumes you have read first the article I wrote for your loved one, “Are You in Defiance of Medical Compliance?”

    And like that first piece, if you read the rest of this article and get turned off, I hope you will at least have the courage and wisdom to ask yourself the two questions in the last paragraph.
