  • 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.

  • Collins hosts formidable Boyle

    Collins football will face off against the most high-powered offense the team has seen this season when 3A power Boyle County visits Shelbyville tonight.

    In four games this season, the Rebels (3-1) are averaging 35 points per game, with wins over John Hardin, Waggener and Wayne County.

  • Shelby County Grand Jury Indictments

    Corey A. Reed, 42, of 110 Monica Drive was indicted for first-degree bail jumping.

    Jeffery “Nick” Bettiga, 30, of 572 St. Anthony Drive in Lexington was indicted for first-degree bail jumping.

    Anna T. Roberts, 34, of 1000 Detention Road was indicted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance (cocaine).

  • Titans hold off Colonels in physical match-up

    In what proved to be a very physical game for both Collins and Oldham County, the Titans did enough to earn the 28-21 win over the Colonels in Buckner Friday.

    Collins (3-1) received an outstanding performance from its quarterback in the seven-point victory, as senior J.R. Lucas rolled up 461 yards of total offense to help lead the team to its third win of the season.

  • Shelby County rallies to top North Bullitt

    When North Bullitt running back Dylan Embry scored his only touchdown of the night to extend the Eagles’ lead to 20-7 over the visiting Shelby County team with 19 to play in the game, it looked as if the Rockets were headed towards its second consecutive loss.

    But Caleb Morehead was having none of that.

    The senior fullback scored three touchdowns in the back half of play to help lead his team to the 35-26 comeback win over North Bullitt on Friday night.
