    Romance is alive and well in Shelby County, or so say merchants who are gearing up for Valentine’s Day.
    People express their love and affection for sweethearts, spouses, friends and parents in many different ways, and Shelby’s business community has been busy supplying the traditional flowers, greeting cards, candy, jewelry and gifts.

  • WICHE: Easy Valentine blooms that keep on giving

    I have a handful of phalaenopsis about the house, and three of them have just begun to shoot up a bloom spike that, once in bloom (probably still about a month away), will bloom for months if I keep them out of direct sunlight.

    One plant is like 10 fresh-cut bouquets, and they are so delicately lovely you just can’t beat them as a nice Valentine gesture.

  • Board will close out Heritage sewer issue

    The Shelby County Board of Education will close out a big project at its regular meeting on Thursday, but it's not Collins High School yet.

    The board will consider approval of closing the Sewage Treatment Plant Replacement project at Heritage Elementary during their meeting at 7 p.m. at Clear Creek Elementary.

    The process started about a year-and-a-half ago when it was found that the maintenance and upkeep of the old treatment plant was going to cost more than a new one. The old plant had been moved to Heritage from Wright Elementary.

  • West wins conference tourney

    The West Middle School boys’ basketball team recently capped off a fine season in fine fashion.

    Mark Sorrells, E.J. Burk and Deon Cochran each made the all-tournament team for West, which hosted the tourney.

  • Titans snap 5-game losing streak

    The Collins boys’ basketball team got a much-needed victory Friday night.

    The Titans topped host Central Hardin, 49-45, to end their 5-game losing streak.

    “Any win is a big win, especially on the road, but it was a big win because we‘ve been struggling a little bit,” said Collins Coach Curtis Turley, whose team’s last victory came Jan. 15 against Casey County. “It was a good one for the guys. It was good to see them back and encouraged and having fun.”
