    London

    I arrived in London by air from Dinard, Brittany on May 18, 1958. It looked clean, orderly and green from the air. Susanne, who had to return to Paris to catch her scheduled flight, met me the following day. We found comfortable accommodations at a reasonable price, just north of Pall Mall in central London.

  • Titans use late momentum to top CAL

    A late run in the final minutes of the fourth quarter gave Collins girls’ basketball the push it needed to overcome a scrappy Christian Academy-Louisville team on Friday night.

    Starting at the 5:36 mark of the fourth quarter, the visiting Titans, holding a five-point lead, outscored the Centurions 10-6 behind a suffocating defense to hold on for a 57-42 win to close the regular season.

  • Collins whips CAL to close season

    Collins boys’ basketball put its offensive firepower on full display at Christian Academy-Louisville Friday night, blowing out the Centurions 73-40 and handing CAL its 11th consecutive loss of the season.

    Led by senior forward Nick Fort’s 19-point, seven rebound performance, the Titans jumped on CAL (6-20) beginning in the second quarter and did not let the home team get comfortable on either end of the floor for the rest of the contest.

  • Shelby’s comeback bid comes up short

    Shelby County boys’ basketball’s comeback bid at home against a visiting Gallatin County came up just short on Friday night, falling by a one-point margin to a very talented Wildcats team, 49-48.

    After a slow first half on both sides of the ball, Shelby (6-21) showed up to dominate in the back two quarters of play, with the Wildcats only able to muster a total of 14 points in the second half.

    The Rockets’ offense improved following a tough first half, but a nine-point fourth quarter ended up just shy of a win in the 8th Region loss.

  • Project Linus to host Blanket Day March 24

    While Saturday was celebrated as National Blanket Day for Project Linus, Shelbyville organizers have moved the local date to March 24.

    After the group scrambled to make and deliver blankets to all the students at Marshall County High School in the wake of the school shooting, Shelby County coordinator Rebecca Jew figured her volunteers needed a little more time.

  • Police take WMS student into custody

    The Shelbyville Police Department was called to West Middle School Friday afternoon after a student was disrupting school.

    The student was taken into custody around 3:15 p.m.

    Shelby County Public Schools Public Relations Coordinator Ryan Allan said the incident started when a student wasn’t happy with a situation at the school.

    Allan said there was no weapon involved in the altercation.

  • New building, new name

     In response to a rapidly growing student population, a new educational facility is in the works for Shelby County.

    A preschool through eighth grade center is under development adjacent to Collins High School, but the facility will initially house middle school students with preschool and elementary students to follow.

    With the new educational facility on the way, Shelby County Public Schools is now tasked with coming up with a name for the building, and they are reaching out to the community for ideas.
