    The Collins girls’ tennis team won its first match of the season, defeating host Anderson County, 4-1, Thursday afternoon.

  • The University of Kentucky's Top 10 men's basketball teams of the last 30 years not to win a national championship

    The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team’s Final Four drought ended this past weekend, but the Wildcats’ national championship drought (and in this state it’s a drought) did not. So while adding to the program’s legacy in one way, these Cats added to it in another way too. With that in mind here’s a quick look at our picks for UK’s Top 10 teams of the last 30 years not to win a national championship.

  • Solid pitching boosts Titans to 4-1 start

    For the Collins baseball team two out of three wasn’t bad Saturday. In fact it was good enough.

    The Titans improved to 4-1 on the young season with a 3-2 victory at North Bullitt.

    “Right now, we’re usually doing two out of three things well,” Collins Coach Roy Bailey said. “One game we’ll hit and pitch well. Another game we’ll hit and field well. We’re just trying to get all three phases together.”

  • Rockets take the wood to 2 foes, fall in semis

    The Shelby County baseball team took to the wood pretty good this past weekend.

    The Rockets went 2-1 in the Jim Dougherty Memorial Tournament at Bellevue, an event in which the teams used wooden bats.

    Shelby County (7-3) won its first two games before falling to fellow 8th Region team Walton-Verona on Sunday morning in the tournament semifinals.

  • 2 new ways you can help

    The Shelbyville Citizen’s Advisory Board is diving headfirst in to a couple of projects its members believe will benefit the city.

    The board, which was organized by Shelbyville Police Chief Robert Schutte a little more than five years ago, is organizing a coat drive and will have a bike rodeo in May.

    It may seem like an odd time of the year to have a coat and blanket drive, but board member Ann Morris described it as kind of a spring-cleaning for winter.

  • City gives 1st OK for annexation of bowling center

    The Shelbyville City Council took the first step for annexation of the property where the former Bluegrass Bowling Center now sits.

  • EARLIER: Shelbyville's sidewalk ordinance: ‘Unfair, unwise…illegal’

    A group of business and property owners finally had their say in front of the Shelbyville City Council during Thursday’s special called meeting at city hall.

    The group was formed in opposition to the city’s sidewalk ordinance, which calls for property owners to repair sidewalks along their property when they fall into disrepair.

  • What we think: Bullitt's bold ban of smoking in public places inspires action

    You may have read recently about a bold new policy decision rendered in Bullitt County.
    Bullitt’s Board of Health voted to make all publicly accessed facilities in the county – including some parks and outdoor areas – smoke free.
    We find this an intriguing step in the debate between smokers’ rights and the greater good of public health. Their concept also is far more wide-ranging and stringent than policies passed by legislative bodies across Kentucky.

  • MY WORD: Cutting Medicaid is no place to start with state budget

    I am writing to express my disappointment in local politicians for supporting the proposed 35 percent, across-the-boards reduction in Kentucky Medicaid services. Do they fully understand the impact this would have on our most frail and vulnerable population?
