  • Restaurant owner claims innocence

    With an investigation still in the wings and no details forthcoming as yet from law enforcement, the owner of a local Chinese restaurant says that not only is that situation wrecking his business, but it’s all unwarranted.

    “No people, no people,” said Fei Zhuo Tang, shaking his head forlornly as he glanced around his empty restaurant, Asian Buffet, located on Howard Drive off Taylorsville Road in Shelbyville.

  • Shelter back open after canine flu

    A month into new management, the animal shelter is settling into a new routine.

    “Things are going well,” said Tracie Lennon, CEO of the Shelby County Humane Society. “There were a few bumps when we first started. We’re working well with Janet, we’re just working through the transition and we’ve had no major problems.”

    Shelby County Deputy Judge-Executive Janet Cuthrell said that since the Shelby County Humane Society took over the county’s animal shelter at the first of the year, things have been running smoothly.

  • Sweet treat

    Doug and Ruth Welch love eating maple syrup – they eat it on, well, just about anything.

    "I don't eat it as much as I'd like to, but I put it on just about everything," Doug Welch said with a sheepish grin as he checked the thermostat on part of his maple syrup collection system on his farm in eastern Shelby County.

    The evaporator, complete with a cast iron door that he opens to throw in a couple more logs, sits next to a huge pile of neatly stacked firewood that lines one entire wall of what he affectionately calls his sugar shack.

  • Titans roll through Rockets in rivalry game

    Collins boys’ basketball used ball movement and hot shooting to stymie a Shelby County comeback effort Saturday and rolled to a 4-0 record in district play this season as a result.

    “We wanted to reestablish our identity as far as sharing the basketball goes,” Titans coach Chris Gaither said. “Marcellus Vail and Nick Fort led our team in assists tonight, so it was good to see those guys making plays for others.”

  • Second half surge leads Titans over Shelby County

    It was a tale of two halves on Saturday night, Collins girls’ basketball came into the final two quarters with a renewed defensive focus, and it showed as the Titans held SCHS to just eight points in the third and fourth quarters combined to pick up a 50-33 district win on Saturday night.

    “I thought we started well, and we finished well,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said. “Obviously in the second quarter we didn’t play well. We got frustrated, and a lot of the credit goes to [Shelby County].”

  • Rockets, Titans close season on high note

    Both Collins and Shelby County high schools closed the swimming regular season Saturday in an 18-team meet held at the Shelbyville Family Activity Center.

    The Rocket boys’ squad was the big winner of the day, taking first-place ahead of runner-up North Oldham by three-and-a-half points with 354.5 while Collins slotted in fourth in the boys’ competition at 325.

  • Shelby County splits games over weekend

    Shelby County girls’ basketball was able to pick up its fifth win of the season in a great team performance against visiting Doss on Thursday night before traveling to Oldham County and falling to the Colonels Friday.

    This game was a direct inverse of the team effort shown by the Rockets just the night before, as SCHS could not seem to get out of its own way, falling 59-24 at Oldham.

  • Collins wraps up top district seed

    The Titans boys’ basketball team sealed its run as the No. 1 seed in 30th District play on Friday night, defeating visiting Anderson County 63-51.

    Collins defense was the star of the show for the first half, as the Titans limited the Bearcats to just three second-quarter points and 25 percent shooting in the opening two quarters on the way to a 33-20 halftime advantage.

  • Titans kick off winning streak

    Collins girls’ basketball has shed its losing streak from the late stages of 2017 in a big way, going on a four-game winning streak and edging out South Oldham and Jeffersontown in a pair of contests on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

    The Titans used size and dominant rebounding to frustrate a talented J-Town team Friday, pulling down 37 boards while point guard Olivia Federle went white-hot from the field with a season-high 31 points.

  • Oldham crushes Rockets

    Shelby County boys’ basketball saw what it takes to compete with the top of the 8th Region on Friday night, as the Rockets faced a strong Oldham County team and took a lopsided 76-32 loss.

    “Oldham [County] did a good job of pressuring us and turning us over then converting on the other end,” Rockets coach Ken Cates said. “They have the ability to go on big runs, and they did that to us early.”
