  • Late rally by Marion County holds off Collins

    Headed into the seventh inning on Tuesday night, Collins baseball was doing solid work on the mound to help limit Marion County to just a 6-2 deficit.

    Starting pitcher Austin Ruble had turned in a very efficient four-and-two-thirds innings for the Titans, allowing just six hits and three earned runs while striking out five batters.

    But Marion County (4-1) plated four runners in the top of the seventh, capitalizing on two Titan (3-3) errors and jumping out to a 10-2 lead with just a half inning left to play.

  • VAN STOCKUM: My Marine Corps Journal 1937-42, Part 29: Jerry Smith flies into the wild blue yonder

    Note: I would like to express again my appreciation to Wendy Noble, younger sister of Spitfire pilots Jerry and Rod Smith, who has provided advice and copies of her trove of documents concerning her brothers’ lives. In doing so I would like to quote from The Spitfire Smiths by Rod Smith, with Christopher Shores. In his Introduction, Shores writes: “Throughout I have been greatly assisted by Wendy Noble without whose efforts I certainly could not have completed this account...”

  • A healthy evening

    With screenings of all types, and even more relaxing activities – such as massages and trying on Derby hats – the hundreds that flocked to Claudia Sanders Dinner House Monday for an annual women’s wellness fair came away well pleased, especially after a fried chicken dinner and a decadent dessert spread.

    The dinner was just icing on the cake, however, as the overall theme of the 12th Annual JHS Women’s Wellness Affair was promoting women’s’ health.

  • Collins falls in state quarterfinals

    In night two of Collins’ appearance in the KHSAA Sweet 16 Basketball Tournament, little went its way.

    The Titans fell behind just 49 seconds into the first quarter, and could never quite find footing on either side of the ball.

    On the other end, Cooper High School could seemingly do no wrong – finishing in the paint at will and preventing the bigger Collins front court from getting second-chance opportunities on the boards.

  • Shelby scores rare tie at Holy Cross

    Shelby County’s visit to Holy Cross in Louisville ended in an unconventional way on Monday night, with a 6-6 tie after five innings.

    The game was called following a fifth inning in which the Cougars knotted the game at six runs apiece before being declared a draw due to lack of stadium lights and the sun going down.

  • Collins tops E-Town

    Following losses against Ballard and Trinity last week, Collins baseball looked to get back on track against Elizabethtown on Saturday morning, and did just that, defeating the Panthers 6-1.

    Titan pitcher Tanner Brown was a key piece in holding E-Town (2-2) to just one run, with an excellent complete game performance.

    Brown went a full seven innings for Collins (3-2), allowing just two hits and no earned runs while striking out six.

  • Griffitts earns second KPGA award

    Clear Creek PGA Professional Derrick Griffitts knows a thing or two about winning awards, and now has another to add to his mantle.

    At last week’s Annual Section Meeting and Awards Luncheon at Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Griffitts received the KPGA Player Development Award from Kentucky PGA President Ralph Landrum.

  • Stocking the flock

    Spring is the season for renewal, especially when it comes to stocking up on chicks, whether you’re just adding a few birds or establishing a new flock. 

    Seasoned chicken farmers don’t need much help, but Walt Reichert, horticulture agent for the Shelby County Extension Office, who has been raising hundreds of birds of his own for years, said most people need advice when it comes to raising poultry.

  • Showcasing Shelby County

    Mark your calendars for March 25 – that’s when the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce will present its 15th annual Community Showcase.

    The event will be held this year at Collins High School at its usual timeframe, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    The event features local businesses that put up booths each year, full of literature and other information on their products and services.
