  • Dogs bite workers at shelter, humane society

    In two separates incidents, workers were bitten by a dog in January, both at the humane society and the animal shelter, which the society now operates.

    One involved a volunteer at the Shelby County Humane Society and the other, an employee at the former Shelby County Animal Shelter, now known as the Shelby County Animal Care Services.

    The volunteer, Brenda Popp, was bitten Jan. 12, and Jill Wintergerst, an employee at the other facility, was bitten the week before.

  • Titans rebound to top Mustangs

    Despite playing its worst half of basketball all season against North Oldham on Tuesday night, Collins boys’ basketball did enough in the final two quarters to beat the Mustangs.

    The host Titans (20-8) committed numerous first half turnovers against North, throwing errant passes out of bounds and shooting just 30 percent from the field in the opening two quarters of action while managing just 14 points in the first half.

  • Collins holds off North Oldham

    While the final score may have been close, Collins girls’ basketball effectively kept North Oldham at bay for much of the game on Tuesday night, picking up a 59-54 win in the process.

    With center Mary-Clare Megibben sidelined with an injury, sophomore point guard Olivia Federle picked up the slack at both ends of the floor, playing stout interior defense and scoring a game-high 20 points on 42 percent shooting in the win over the Mustangs as Collins virtually led from the opening tip until the final buzzer had sounded.

  • Colts run through visiting Shelby County

    DeSales jumped on the visiting Shelby County boys’ basketball team from the opening tip and rode that early momentum to a lopsided win over the Rockets Tuesday.

    After a first quarter that saw the Colts score 21 points and allow just four to Shelby, the Rockets had no answer for the onslaught on both sides of the ball, finally falling 74-41.

  • 30th District tournament set to begin Tuesday

    Following this weekend’s slate of games, Shelby County and Collins high schools will kick off the 30th District Tournament with games beginning on Tuesday night.

    On the boys’ side of the bracket, it will be the renewal of the crosstown rivalry between both schools in the third meeting of this season between the Titans and Rockets.

    SCHS has been on a tear, winning four of out of its previous six games and seemingly finding some footing on both ends of the floor.

  • A taxing chore

    It's been two weeks since most people received their W2s from their employers, and many ran to their tax preparers like a racehorse to the starting gate, but others, like a skittish thoroughbred, are balking at the chore.

    Tax prepares say those waiting are often those that owe money or are trying to prepare their own returns, both of which can be helped with a tax professional.

  • Rockets, Titans earn spots at state

    Both Shelby County and Collins’ swim teams turned in strong performances at the Region Swim Meet at Woodford County High School over the weekend and will be represented at the KHSAA State Swim Meet later this month.

    “Our swimmers swam well. They swam fast [over the weekend] to qualify and swam faster [in the championship round],” Swim coach Tom Coons said. “That is all you can ask as a coach. You go a personal best time when the pressure is on, and that shows excellent composure [as an athlete].”

  • Shelby picks up weekend wins

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team closed its season on a high note over the weekend, defeating a visiting North Oldham squad in host duty on Friday night before traveling to Williamstown on Saturday and picking up a win there as well.

    A strong defensive effort allowed the Rockets (8-20) to officially close its season on a two-game winning streak, as SCHS topped Williamstown by seven points on Saturday.

  • Titans split tough slate

    A tough late stretch of games for Collins boys’ basketball continued over the weekend, as the Titans (19-8) split a pair of games against DeSales and Doss as the regular season winds down and the postseason begins.

    The Titans fought tooth-and-nail to try and overcome Doss on Saturday night, but the Dragons found a way to overcome its opponent in the overtime period.
