  • 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.

  • Rockets rally for comeback win

    While Friday’s game was not Super Bowl LI, Shelby County’s comeback win over Bullitt East was certainly Patriot-like.

    Trailing by a 21-6 margin coming out of halftime, the Rockets (4-1) scored 16 unanswered points following the break, defeating a visiting Chargers (1-3) team and picking up its fourth win of the year in the process.

    SCHS’ comeback was complete when, with 6:12 left in regulation, sophomore kicker Christian Gayhart nailed a 44-yard field goal attempt with plenty of room to spare.

  • Collins falls to visiting Boyle County

    Although it jumped out to an early lead, Collins proved to be no match for 3A perennial power Boyle County on Friday night, as the Rebels rolled to a 45-17 win.

    Boyle (4-1) limited Collins (3-2) to 264 yards of total offense, along with a season-low 17 points and handed the Titans its second loss of the season.

  • Titans rout Shelby County

    Everything went Collins’ way in Monday’s matchup between the Titans and crosstown rival Shelby County.

  • Collins whips Manual Thursday

    As the boys’ golf season comes to a close, it appears that Collins seems to be peaking at the right time.

    The Titans earned a big win over a visiting Manual team on Thursday night, in a 40-stroke victory over the Crimsons.

    Five different Collins’ golfers carded scores of 47 or lower as the home team defeated Manual by a 163-203 margin at Shelbyville Country Club.

  • Former bingo hall gets facelift

    You may have noticed the former bowling alley and bingo hall on Midland Trail getting a touch up lately. The building, which has been vacant for nearly a year is now sporting a fresh coat of paint and even more improvements on the inside.

    That’s because there has been a lot of interest lately from potential buyers, said realtor Larry Rogers, who owns the building along with Barbara Hamilton.
