  • Golf tourneys open fall playoffs

    It seems like high school fall sports just started, but Monday is the beginning of the end of them.

    The boys’ golf postseason gets under  way with the 6th Region Tournament on Monday morning at Seneca Golf Course. Collins and Shelby County are in a difficult region, which includes traditional power St. Xavier (last year’s state runner-up and the No. 1 team in the state coaches association Top 10 poll) and Christian Academy of Louisville (which tied for eighth at state last year after winning the region).

  • His last shot is his best shot

    Shelby County senior Austin Stivers is finishing up his first season of playing for the boys’ varsity golf team.

    “I knew all my friends played on the team, and I wanted to play a sport before I got out of high school,” said Stivers, who’ll represent the Rockets on Monday in the 5th Region Tournament at Seneca Golf Course. “I’m not really into team sports, but this is a sport you can play as an individual, but still be part of a team. Plus I wanted to make the most of my senior year.”

  • Playing to potential is his goal

    Collins senior Conor Doyle has played varsity boys’ golf since he was in the fifth grade.

    He played that year for a high school in Tennessee before playing his sixth grade through sophomore years for Whitefield Academy. He’s in his second year on the Titans’ team.

    Doyle, who has a 3.3 grade-point average, is involved in FCA as well as an abstinence club that goes to local schools to talk to children about saving themselves for marriage and will represent the Titans on Monday in the 5th Region Tournament at Seneca Golf Course.

  • A Homecoming opponent that may not be a nice guest

    The Oldham County football team may have the record of a traditional Homecoming opponent, but the Colonels don’t have the talent of one.

    That’s according to Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley, whose team hosts Oldham (1-4) at 7:30 tonight in its Homecoming at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    “To me, for having four losses, they’re pretty darn good,” said Shipley, whose Rockets (1-3) spoiled Henry County’s Homecoming last Friday with their first victory of the season. 

  • Rested but not healed, Titans open district play

    The bye week was good, and slightly bad, for the Collins football team as it heads into district play.

    On the plus side was plenty of practice and repetitions – which Coach Jerry Lucas hopes benefited the Titans’ younger players. On the flip side, though, there wasn’t enough time to heal the ankle injury of senior running back Darian Dugle, the team’s leading rusher last season and second-leading rusher through Collins’ first four games of this season.

  • EARLIER: Rural King wants outdoor storage area

    The Triple S Planning Commission will have a special called meeting on Thursday at 6:15 p.m. at the Stratton Center.

    The meeting, which will be in the small room to the back and right from the entrance, was announced at the end of Tuesday’s regular meeting and will take into consideration an amended Planned Unit Development for the new Rural King store opening on Boone Station Road, in the old Kroger building.

    Rural King is looking to add outdoor storage on the lot, fronting Boone Station Road.

  • EARLIER: Triple S says property on Shelbyville Bypass should remain zoned ag

    The Triple S Planning Commission greeted a standing-room only crowd with just the answer it was looking for at Tuesday’s meeting — no.

    With a unanimous vote, the commission will not recommend changing 73 acres located on the southeast corner of Harrington Mill and Freedom’s Way from agricultural to light industrial.

  • Man deported 6 times after illegally entring country sentenced to prison

    An undocumented citizen living in Shelbyville was sentenced Tuesday to 38 months in federal prison for entering the United States illegally for the seventh time.

    U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves handed down the sentence to Raul Estrada-Chavez, 32, for illegal re-entry after deportation.

    On March 2, Estrada-Chavez was arrested by Kentucky State Police Trooper Trevor Harris for various traffic violations, including no operator’s license.
