  • Reading between the lines

    If you like nothing better than relaxing with a good book, then the upcoming Bookfest is right down your alley.

    Deloris Odenweller, an organizer of the yearly event, glanced around Wednesday at mounds of books lining the walls at The Sentinel-News, where for weeks people have been dropping off books to donate to the event, which will be Oct. 12-14.

  • 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.

  • Anderson County edges out Collins

    The matchup between Anderson County and Collins Wednesday proved to be an exercise in patience for both teams, as the Bearcats came away with the 1-0 win and the No. 1 seed for the 30th District Tournament.

    The lone goal was scored with 22 minutes left in the first half, when the Bearcats’ Harley Taylor found the back of the net to set the final deficit and lock up the district’s top seed.

  • Collins holds off Shelby County in rivalry match

    In Tuesday’s first of two head-to-head matches between rivals Shelby County and Collins, it was the Titans’ volleyball team that came out on top after four tough sets to take the 3-1 win over the Rockets.

    The victory was anything but easy for Collins, as both teams traded points at a frenetic pace, and by the end of the second set, both teams were tied at 1-1.

    It was the Titans that had the momentum shift in its direction at that point, as Collins moved to 3-0 in district play this season.

  • Shelby County faces Bullitt East

    It is a safe bet that tonight’s Shelby County-Bullitt East matchup will not be as drama-filled as 2016’s match-up.

    In that game, several Rockets suffered injuries and five starters were knocked out of the game before Shelby fell 56-31 to the Chargers.

    When that was all said and done, Bullitt East still lost the game. The Chargers were forced to forfeit the win over Shelby later in the season due to its female kicker being found ineligible after not completing the minimum amount of practices required.
