  • Letting his hair down

    Zach McIntosh started growing his hair long on a whim, but when it hit his shoulders and he knew it was past time for a haircut, he got an idea.

    McIntosh went to his mother with an idea that made her realize that not only was her son – a senior at Collins High School – becoming a man, but he was becoming a man with a kind and caring heart.

    "He decided he would like to help kids with cancer and donate his hair, and we couldn't be prouder of him," said Valery McIntosh, smiling at her husband, Nick, who nodded in agreement.

  • Spencer rallies to top Collins

    With five minutes remaining in regulation, it seemed as if the Collins girls’ basketball team would cruise to its second consecutive 30th District Championship game.

    The Titans (18-12) held a nine-point lead over the visiting Bears (19-11) at home, 43-34, and were having no trouble getting to the rim, or knocking down outside shots.

    But Spencer County had other ideas on the way to a 50-47 upset.

  • Collins advances to district final

    In a win-or-go-home game for both Shelby and Collins boys’ basketball teams, Titans’ senior forward Charlie Cochran once again stepped up when called upon.

  • Anderson rolls through Shelby

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball had its season ended, 49-26, at the hands of Anderson County on Tuesday night in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.

    The Bearcats (23-7) used a stifling press defense throughout the entire game to trap Shelby’s ball-handlers and force numerous turnovers.

    “On the offensive end their [Anderson’s] pressure of course bothers you,” Rockets coach Jason Holland said. “But we also didn’t shoot the ball very well, and some of that is on us.”

  • VAN STOCKUM: My Marine Corps Journal 1937-42, Part 27: Once more into Mediterranean for Relief of Malta

    May 3, 1942

    Yesterday, we unmoored and stood down the Clyde, anchoring in Greenock. The weather was perfect and the green hills were very tempting. I went ashore for a few hours in that famous old shipbuilding town, drank a couple of beers, walked miles, and noticed some ruins from last year’s air raids. It’s amazing the difficulty one has in buying whiskey in Scotland. Underway at 0530 this morn.
