  • South Oldham girls beat Collins 38-34 in 8th first round

    WARSAW - The Collins girls' basketball team fell to South Oldham 38-34 in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament Monday night at Gallatin County.

    The Titans' first season ended with some frigid shooting, both from the field and the free throw line, in a game that was delayed more than an hour because the Dragons were stuck in a traffic jam on Interstate 71. Collins was 11 for 44 from the field (25 percent) and 11 for 24 (45.8 percent) from the foul line.

  • Great egret fought off extinction

    The great egret in Kentucky has state status as an endangered species. During the second half of the 19th century, this species was pushed to the brink of extinction by over hunting for the millinery trade.
    This action took place during the mating and nesting season when the great egret grew long white plumes, which were long sought after to adorn women’s headwear.

    TAYLORSVILLE – Aaliyah Wells got her braces off last week, but Collins girls basketball Coach Phillip Conder didn’t notice.

  • Eye on the target

  • Home sales slip 4.2 percent

    After seeing a slight increase in sales the previous year, the real estate market in Shelby County saw a similar decrease in 2010.

    Total sales for the county was about $74.4 million for the year, about 4.2 percent down from 2009.

    That's very close to the sales trend in Kentucky, which, according to the Kentucky Association of Realtors, dipped 3.7 percent.

    However, Shelby County's median sales price of $140,000 was almost 40 percent higher than the state's and much closer to the national median of $172,700.
