  • Wet/dry elections start Tuesday

    Tuesday is the first of two wet/dry elections coming up for the county.

    The first election is only for one precinct, however, while the election for the remainder of the county will be the following week, on Sept. 13 when voters will decide if packaged alcohol sales will be allowed in the county.

    Tuesday’s vote for the single precinct, Marshall Doaks, E102, is to establish a winery on an historic property owned by Allan Clore near Eminence.

  • Battle for Life

    At 20 years old, Austin Collins was in prime health and studying to be a police officer.

    Then at a family gathering last Thanksgiving, he developed a sudden, blinding headache and became extremely nauseous.

    “I thought I had the flu – then I woke up two months later,” he said.

    Collins had experienced something that affects 8 out of 100,000 people each year in the United States – a ruptured brain aneurysm.

    He had gone to lay down in his mother’s car, and if he had been left unattended, he could have died.

  • Collins drills Waggener, 2-0

    The Collins High School volleyball team made it two in a row defeating Waggener in two sets on Wednesday night.
    Collins easily cruised to victory over the Wildcats, winning the two sets by scores of 25-13 and 25-9.

    “I think [Waggener] is having a down year,” coach Cary Clark said. “They didn’t bring the competition they typically do. But we executed everything the way we should have and got the win.”

    With less than two minutes remaining in the first, the Colonels got a solid shot on goal, beating keeper Matthew Stoltz for the first score of the game.

  • Collins, Eastern feature potent aerial attacks

    After a 55-52 shootout win over Bullitt East, Collins High School will travel to Louisville tonight to take on 6A Eastern High School.

    On paper, the game looks like it could be another shootout for Collins, with both teams boasting prolific offensive attacks while struggling on defense. Last year’s contest was a shootout as well, with the Eagles picking up the 49-44 win over the Titans.

  • Rockets face Oldham in home opener

    After picking up its first win of the season in a blowout, Shelby County High School will welcome old school rival Oldham County to town for the home opener tonight at 7:30.

    Last season, Shelby routed the Colonels, 43-7.

    While it’s an old rivalry, it won’t look like the bare-knuckle brawls from years past.
