  • McGuire grandsons

    Four grandsons of the late Charles Edward McGuire, who served in the U.S. Navy during World War II, gathered to the plant and raise a flag in his honor. McGuire was wounded during a battle in the Pacific. J. Clay Cull (from left), former Marine Cpl. Robert Riggs II, First Sgt. Abraham M. Blessinger and Charles Joshua Cull were on hand. Mark A. Blessinger and LaMar Edward Hundley II were unable to attend. Blessinger recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.

  • Revolutionary War soldier’s grave dedicated

  • Gabby Karas takes record victory in champs meet

    Collins seventh-grader Gabby Karas won the KTCCCA Meet of Champions cross-country race in record time Saturday at Masterson Station Park in Lexington.

    Karas covered the 4,000-meter course in 14 minutes, 16 seconds – more than 43 seconds faster than the runner-up, and 20 seconds faster than the old race record. 

    Only one other local runner placed in the Top 50 in any of the other races. Collins eighth-grader Jacob Hershberger finished 33rd (14:55.66) in the boys’ race.

     

  • Time for a change at UK - at quarterback

    It’s time for a change for the University of Kentucky football team.

    No, not at head coach. I still believe Joker Phillips deserves at least one more year (a.k.a. the Steve Kragthorpe Lame Duck Season). However, I also believe that he needs to pull the trigger on a much-needed personnel decision. The Wildcats’ coach needs to bench junior quarterback Morgan Newton and put freshman Maxwell Smith under center for Saturday’s must-win game (kickoff is 3:30 p.m.) against Mississippi at Commonwealth Stadium.

  • U of L’s Heyman playing ‘big’ role

    Dexter Heyman has always looked the part of big-time college football player.

    Now he’s playing that part too.

    Listed at 6 feet 3, 238 pounds, Heyman has always been a physical specimen since the day he arrived on the University of Louisville campus from Male High School. It took Heyman some time, though, to make his mark on the field for the Cardinals with only one start in his first two seasons.

  • He’s the center of attention for the Titans

    Senior Joseph Fawns has been at the center of a lot of activity this season for the Collins football team.

    The offensive center/defensive lineman is a 6-foot, 280-pound immovable object on one side of the football and an irresistible force on the other side of it.

    Fawns (“Fawns” or “Fonzie” to most) is a big reason why Collins (8-2) has won six consecutive games heading into Friday night’s Class 4A first-round playoff game against Moore.
