    Collins’ streak of being undefeated in district matchups since 2014 rolled on Wednesday night, as the Titans easily closed out Anderson County in a match that lasted just 57 minutes.

  • Titans open district play at Spencer County

    Collins football team will open its district play tonight, when the Titans travel to Taylorsville to take on Spencer County (2-3).

  • Titans take second at Grant County tourney

    Collins girls’ golf continued its march toward the region tournament on Sept. 29 with a second-place finish at the Grant County Invitational over the weekend.

  • Biagi’s says goodbye

    For nearly a century, business at Biagi’s Appliance has been good. But as they say, all good things must come to an end.

    So as brothers Steve and Robert Biagi wrap up the store’s 90th anniversary, they are preparing to close the doors on the family business.

    Annibale Biagi established Biagi’s Appliances in downtown Shelbyville in 1927.  The business passed through the hands of their grandfather to their father, Vincent, and uncle, Hugh, before the brother’s joined them at the helm in 1993.

  • Triple S Planning Commission - Waddy gas station approved

    With what they expected to be a lengthy agenda on the table, the Triple S Planning Commission divided its regularly scheduled monthly meeting into two nights.

  • VAN STOCKUM: 30 Years in the Marines: The Rest of the Story (1942-1967), Part 11: Home from the war in the Pacific

    On April 1, 1945, while flying home, having competed a combat tour in the Pacific of nearly 26 months, I heard on the plane’s radio news of the assault on Okinawa that day.

    This was the beginning of another struggle with a skilled and determined enemy, who augmented his defenses this time with kamikaze pilots who deliberately crashed their bomb-laden planes on naval ships.

    On land and sea a terrible toll was exacted, foretelling a bloody struggle for the home islands of Japan, planned for later that year.

  • Fun on the farm

    The leaves on some trees were just beginning to turn subtle shades of crimson and yellow on Saturday, creating a perfect backdrop for a crisp fall day of lazy family fun for the entire community.

    The Good Neighbors Farm Tour was in its 5th year this past weekend and those who participated in the self-guided tour of nine local farms said they couldn’t remember a more enjoyable tour. 

  • Reprising a family role in history

    Almost like a family tradition, Mike Tracy will do his part to clean up downtown Shelbyville this weekend.

    The owner of Tracy’s Home Furnishings will don police attire to patrol downtown for the re-enactment of the shooting of Brig. Gen. Henry Denhardt, which took place 80 years ago and thrust Shelbyville into the national spotlight.
