  • Anderson County edges out Collins

    The matchup between Anderson County and Collins Wednesday proved to be an exercise in patience for both teams, as the Bearcats came away with the 1-0 win and the No. 1 seed for the 30th District Tournament.

    The lone goal was scored with 22 minutes left in the first half, when the Bearcats’ Harley Taylor found the back of the net to set the final deficit and lock up the district’s top seed.

  • Collins holds off Shelby County in rivalry match

    In Tuesday’s first of two head-to-head matches between rivals Shelby County and Collins, it was the Titans’ volleyball team that came out on top after four tough sets to take the 3-1 win over the Rockets.

    The victory was anything but easy for Collins, as both teams traded points at a frenetic pace, and by the end of the second set, both teams were tied at 1-1.

    It was the Titans that had the momentum shift in its direction at that point, as Collins moved to 3-0 in district play this season.

  • Shelby County faces Bullitt East

    It is a safe bet that tonight’s Shelby County-Bullitt East matchup will not be as drama-filled as 2016’s match-up.

    In that game, several Rockets suffered injuries and five starters were knocked out of the game before Shelby fell 56-31 to the Chargers.

    When that was all said and done, Bullitt East still lost the game. The Chargers were forced to forfeit the win over Shelby later in the season due to its female kicker being found ineligible after not completing the minimum amount of practices required.

  • Collins hosts formidable Boyle

    Collins football will face off against the most high-powered offense the team has seen this season when 3A power Boyle County visits Shelbyville tonight.

    In four games this season, the Rebels (3-1) are averaging 35 points per game, with wins over John Hardin, Waggener and Wayne County.

  • Jewish is out of local hospitals

  • Four paws for Paxton

    Parents know that going anywhere with little ones can be a challenge.

    But for Southside Elementary art teacher Michelle Thomas and her husband Delonte, going out with their children can be an extremely overwhelming task. That’s because not only do they have three little ones, but their 5-year-old son, Paxton, has autism.

    Activities most of us take for granted like a dinner out, a trip to the grocery, our kid’s soccer game, aren’t a quick trip for the Thomas family.

  • The legacy of a witness

    Next week Main Street will close and people will gather around to lay witness to a dramatic scene, much like they did 80 years ago.

    On Sept. 20, 1937, a gunshot resonated through the streets of downtown Shelbyville when the brothers of Oldham County murder victim Verna Garr Taylor shot and killed her alleged murderer, Brig. Gen. Henry Denhardt.

    But when the scene plays out this time, it will be a bit more theatrical, as the community gathers to reenact the event in honor of the eightieth anniversary.

    “A lot of the Wiche family was there,” he said, adding that the crowd also including city, county and state officials, including Simpsonville City Commissioners.
